RIP Eric Carmen

Postby Mike Boom » 12 Mar 2024, 22:26

Just found this out. Aged 74. Gutted.
The Raspberries were one of the greatest pop bands ever and "Overnight Sensation" remains one of my personal favorite songs. A soaring masterpiece right up there with "Good Vibrations" and "Bohemian Rhapsody" in the "epic pop single" stakes. What a voice.

"I know it sounds funny but I'm not in it for the money..."

and of course that wasn't the only one , "Go All The Way", "All By Myself", "Never Fall In Love Again" et all

RIP Mr Carmen and thanks for the music.

Big fan of the Raspberries. Very clever pop band. Solo work not really interested in, but Eric was certainly a very talented guy

I remember where I was when I first heard "Go all the way." Instantly a favorite; one of the great singles of pop/rock music. Carmen was a highly talented guy with the voice of an angel.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?
