Eric Carmen passes away.

Eric Carmen, who became an icon in the 70s as the frontman of the Raspberries, is no longer with us.  His wife made the announcement on social media saying, “It is with tremendous sadness that we share the heartbreaking news of the passing of Eric Carmen.

Our sweet, loving, and talented Eric passed away in his sleep, over the weekend. It brought him great joy to know that for decades, his music touched so many and will be his lasting legacy.

Please respect the family’s privacy as we mourn our enormous loss. ‘Love Is All That Matters… Faithful and Forever’” The quote from Carmen’s wife is a callback to the song “Love Is All That Matters,” from his 1977 solo album “Boats Against the Current.” Carmen’s other solo hits include “All By Myself” and “Hungry Eyes.”
