Whatever Happened To… Eric Carmen?

All by Myself – Eric Carmen (1975)
This American singer, songwriter, and musician first made a name for himself as front-man of the Raspberries, a band that helped define power-pop in the early 70’s. This single and album, his debut following his departure from the band, solidified his solo credentials. Carmen also became a sought-after songwriter for other artists, on both the pop and country charts. His performance career saw a resurgence in the 80’s, thanks to his contribution to the Dirty Dancing soundtrack. And in 2000, he was part of Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band. The Raspberries reunited briefly in 2004 and toured the next year, resulting in a live album.
