Eric Carmen Goes All the Way ... To Jail!

Posted By on Thu, Apr 16, 2009 at 1:40 PM


Eric Carmen, the awesome-haired former Raspberries frontman, pleaded no contest yesterday to drunken driving and failing to control his car. He's been sentenced to a month in jail.

Carmen, who lives in upscale Gates Mills, plowed his car into a fire hydrant last September. His blood-alcohol limit was nearly three times the legal limit. "Make Me Lose Control" indeed!

The singer — who also had huge solo hits in the '70s and '80s with "All By Myself" and the Dirty Dancing smash "Hungry Eyes" — will begin his jail stint on April 25, says a Bedford Municipal Court judge.

Maybe Carmen can sing "Go All the Way" to some of his cellmates? —Michael Gallucci
