Eric Carmen từ ban nhạc Raspberries Frontman và ca sĩ 'All by Myself', qua đời ở tuổi 74

ông góp giọng vào bản hit đột phá năm 1972 của người tiên phong trong dòng nhạc power-pop, “Go All the Way,” trước khi bắt đầu sự nghiệp solo thành công với tư cách là nghệ sĩ hát crooner nhạc rock nhẹ

Eric Carmen, whose plaintive vocals soared above the crunching guitars (tiếng đàn guitar lạo xạo) of the 1970s power-pop pioneers the Raspberries on hits like “Go All the Way,” and whose soft-rock crooning later as a solo artist propelled anthems (nghệ sĩ solo tung ra những bài quốc ca) like “All by Myself” and “Hungry Eyes,” has died. He was 74.

His death was announced on his website by his wife, Amy Carmen. She did not give a cause or specify where he died, saying only that he died “in his sleep, over the weekend.”

To Mr. Carmen, the relatively square look was a cheeky way (cách táo bạo) to stand out in the landscape of 1970s rock. “Almost every band had hair down to their waist and beards and ripped jeans and they looked like a bunch of hippies, and I wanted to get as far away from that as I could,” he said in a 2017 interview with The Observer.

It all worked. The band burst onto the rock scene in 1972 with its debut album, titled simply “Raspberries,” which included a raspberry-scented scratch-and-sniff sticker (miếng dán chống xước), a hint of the sugary pop hooks contained within.

The Raspberries reunited in 2004. A show from that tour was featured on a 28-song live album, “Raspberries Pop Art Live,” released in 2017. The album’s liner notes were written by the filmmaker and former rock journalist Cameron Crowe, who showcased “Go All the Way” in his 2000 movie, “Almost Famous.”

Complete information about Mr. Carmen’s survivors was not immediately available.
