Scene mag 3-75; very insightful article


Recommended Posts

This concert was near the end of Raspberries, with only a handful of concerts after this one. The writer, D. B. Cooper (ha-ha, good pen name) is obviously familiar with the Cleveland scene. Without Wally at this point, the band suffered from a power failure, wrong notes, and missed cues, according to the writer. Of note is Magic, opening for Raspberries. Could this be when the seed was planted in Eric to choose Magic for his Eric Carmen Band? The writer allows that the only thing that didn't go wrong for Raspberries was the equipment wasn't stolen out of the van. Hmmm, this guy knows his Raspberries history. Interesting note, Rusty Pitrone on the sound board was handed a mic to sing on Ecstasy. Probably the coolest mention was of Magic joining Raspberries for Overnight Sensation and on Go All The Way. The author closes with the observation that artistically, this concert should have been booked on the Titanic...
