What the Hell Happened to Eric Carmen?

He looks nothing like he used to. Its' also sad to hear about his career post 80's. The industry dropped him like a rock.

I can see that [R2]. I was going to say Olivia de Havilland.

He claims that this is one of his best songs - but the vocal is SO weak.

I was think more along the lines of Rose Marie, may she rest in peace.

He was always odd looking and the way he dressed was bizarre - and don't say "It was the 70s!" - he looked odd then.

Looks like Manilow’s heftier cousin and sounds like Ralph the piano-playing dog on The Muppet Show.

He was 'emo' long before that term was invented. I wonder if it's occurred to him that when you tour and sing about being stuck in a 'town full of desperate fools' you've essentially cast your audience in the role of the fool.

He was a joke starting out in Cleveland. The 70s outfits made people think he was gay--more of a matter of fact judgement than a putdown. I think his father owned a meat market, but he had an aunt who played for the Cleveland Orchestra, so there was music in the family. He finally married at 70 which makes me think gay, gay, gay.

Loved "I Wanna Be With You" and "Go All The Way" when he led the Raspberries. I guess his big solo hit was "All By Myself", but he had another hit based on some classical piece...I'm drawing a blank...

What happened to singer Eric Carmen? He simply got old/older which is a sin in show business. Not his fault and it happens to all of them.

I loved the Raspberries and feel they were underrated. Eric got very schmaltzy as a solo act. I have his first solo album but never bought another one. But he was very talented musically I think. He reminded me of Billy Joel in the fact that they both grew up with some classical training and you can always hear their classical training come out in lots of their earlier music. Still, I have always wondered what became of him. I'm a bit afraid to watch this video as I don't want to feel bad for him. I remember watching the Raspberries on Bandstand.

He's alright, don't worry.

yes, some of the songs were based on famous classical pieces.

I liked a few of his songs - he seems like a closeted gay man. ONJ covered his "Boats Against the Current" song on the "Totally Hot" album - not a memorable song

This is one of my favorites which happened to be his last hit. The best song Billy Joel never wrote.

OMG, some of you are too much.

He just looks like a typical effeminate looking guy, like, I dunno, Little Richard? The way everyone was reacting, I thought this was on the level of that one heavy metal guy (forgot his name) who goes around wearing pant suits and lipstick.

I know him. He's not gay he just has no personality. He has a lot of $$$. Just got married for the 2nd time a few years ago to a cotton-candy blonde. He looks frightening in person. Wears make-up sometimes.

I stumbled across his name while googling someone else and wondered -- and still wonder -- who in the hell is Eric Carmen? I'm old enough to know who other flaming closet cases are -- like Neil Sedaka and Wayne Newton -- but Eric Carmen?

As someone above said, he looks like a cross between June Allyson and Rose Marie. No way this guy is straight.

[R29] you have a very, very strange idea of "handsome."

[R35] get your eyes checked, that is not a "typical effeminate-looking guy." When I scrolled past the pic in OP I honest to God thought that it was a dumpy middle-aged Frau.
