Born on August 11, 1949, in Cleveland, Ohio, Carmen showed his musical talent early on. He joined the rock band The Raspberries in the early 1970s, where they became famous for their tunes and harmonious vocals.

“I had spent my youth with my head between two stereo speakers listening to the Byrds and the Beatles and later on the Beach Boys,” Carmen had said in a 1991 interview published on his personal website.

The band scored hits like “Go All The Way.” After the band broke up, Carmen started a successful solo career. “Unshackled from having to write for three specific guys and myself, my brain just kind of opened up,” he told The Observer.

“Also, I didn’t want to make a record that sounded just like the Raspberries, because I thought, Jesus, everybody will go, ‘Oh, here he goes again, he’s just repeating what he already did.’”

Alongside classics like “All by Myself” and “Hungry Eyes,” he delivered other notable hits such as “Never Gonna Fall in Love Again,” “Almost Paradise,” and “She Did It.” Following the news of Carmen’s passing, tributes flooded in from fellow musicians, including Slash, who expressed their condolences.
