Lew Bundles Posted June 5, 2020 Share Posted June 5, 2020 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. see offsite link on youtube.com —Anonymous 31 views 37 posters 50 replies 10/26/2018 Transitioning? —Anonymous reply 1 10/26/2018 He looks like June Allyson! —Anonymous reply 2 10/26/2018 I can see that [R2]. I was going to say Olivia de Havilland. —Anonymous reply 3 10/26/2018 He claims that this is one of his best songs - but the vocal is SO weak. see offsite link on youtube.com —Anonymous reply 4 10/26/2018 I was think more along the lines of Rose Marie, may she rest in peace. see offsite link on abcnews.com —Anonymous reply 5 10/26/2018 Yeah he looks like a woman who has had bad plastic surgery. [ troll 5533 ] —Anonymous reply 6 10/26/2018 He was always odd looking and the way he dressed was bizarre - and don't say "It was the 70s!" - he looked odd then. see offsite link on youtube.com —Anonymous reply 7 10/26/2018 That's not Eric Carmen. That's his mother. —Anonymous reply 8 10/26/2018 I legit thought this said "Eric Cartman" at first. —Anonymous reply 9 10/26/2018 Looks like Manilow’s heftier cousin and sounds like Ralph the piano-playing dog on The Muppet Show. —All by myself on a Friday night reply 10 10/26/2018 He’s been struggling with alcoholism for decades. Let’s all pile on and ridicule his appearance! —Anonymous reply 11 10/26/2018 Isn’t that what we’re doing? —Anonymous reply 12 10/26/2018 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. —Not a winning strategy. reply 13 10/26/2018 I guess this is why he sold out to Applebee's. —Hungry Eyes reply 14 10/26/2018 Weird ass —Anonymous reply 15 10/26/2018 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. —Anonymous reply 16 10/26/2018 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... —Anonymous reply 17 10/26/2018 I always got him confused with Gino Vaginelli. —Anonymous reply 18 10/26/2018 Seriously, he must have a hormonal problem. His testosterone may be low or he has a petuitary gland issue. —Anonymous reply 19 10/26/2018 For you OP see offsite link on google.com —Anonymous reply 20 10/26/2018 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. —Anonymous reply 21 10/26/2018 Eric back in the day with Clive Davis. He is now 69. see offsite link on twimg.com —Sporting his fluffy trademark hairdo. reply 22 10/26/2018 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. —Anonymous reply 23 10/26/2018 TOO GAY —Anonymous reply 24 10/26/2018 I'm a bit afraid to watch this video as I don't want to feel bad for him. He's alright, don't worry. 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. yes, some of the songs were based on famous classical pieces. —Anonymous reply 25 10/26/2018 @[R17] . I forgot that he was the singer for The Raspberries. 'Go All the Way' was indeed a great song. —Anonymous reply 26 10/26/2018 He looks like Jane Fonda in [R22]’s pic. —Anonymous reply 27 10/26/2018 Eric Carmen as the years go on. see offsite link on awfulplasticsurgery.com —Anonymous reply 28 10/26/2018 Handsome, classic gayface. see offsite link on lst.fm —Anonymous reply 29 10/26/2018 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 —Anonymous reply 30 10/26/2018 This is one of my favorites which happened to be his last hit. The best song Billy Joel never wrote. see offsite link on youtube.com —Anonymous reply 31 10/26/2018 Not just "any" classical pieces - RACHMANINOV. Gay, gay, gay. —Anonymous reply 32 10/26/2018 All By Myself and Never Gonna Fall in Love Again are 2 of the best Carpenters songs not written or sung by Carpenters. —Anonymous reply 33 10/26/2018 No love for 1985's "I Wanna Hear It From Your Lips"...?? see offsite link on youtu.be —Anonymous reply 34 10/26/2018 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. —Anonymous reply 35 10/26/2018 Raspberries best song was "Let's Pretend". Paul McCartney said that was the song he had always tried to write. —Anonymous reply 36 10/26/2018 [R36] Paul McCartney wrote too many shitty songs in later years. —Let's Pretend he didn't write them. reply 37 10/27/2018 [R36] Let’s Pretend and McCartney’s With a Liitle Luck sound familiar. —Anonymous reply 38 10/27/2018 Wait, Eric Carmen is a straight man? —Anonymous reply 39 10/27/2018 Gay gay gay gay gay gay gay [ troll 5594 ] —Anonymous reply 40 10/27/2018 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. —Anonymous reply 41 10/27/2018 Talk about hungry eyes. —Anonymous reply 42 10/27/2018 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. see offsite link on showbiz411.com —Anonymous reply 43 05/01/2020 [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. —Anonymous reply 44 05/01/2020 He's a very handsome guy, but he needs to leave his eyebrows alone...but god damn, otherwise he's handsome as fuck. —Anonymous reply 45 05/01/2020 LOL at the poster who made the Rose Marie comparison. It's dead on. —Anonymous reply 46 05/01/2020 Rose Marie yes, but with a little Shirley Temple Black rolled in. —And I DO mean rolled... reply 47 05/01/2020 Too late [R45]. Waaaay too late. Oh, and by the way, get your prescription checked. see offsite link on pinterest.com —Handsome as fuck? reply 48 05/01/2020 He’s a giant Trumptard. Fuck him. —Anonymous reply 49 05/01/2020 A drag queen is a Trump fan? That's interesting —Anonymous Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
