I enjoyed your website...enjoyed your website.
I worked at the post office with your sister Roberta (Birdie)
Love your music, lyrics and your videos!!! Just played Don't Nobody Move on my radio show last Saturday. Love from Guam!
Don't expect you would remember me but I just came across a photo of a group of us in a convertible going to the Grammys with Norman Seeff - so thought I would Google you and here I am... Hope you are well and thriving, just wanted to say Hi.
As a long-time record collector since my boyhood, I purchased a record on the Philips label in 1967 you co-wrote with George Fischoff, "Many's The Slip Twixt The Cup and The Lip" (Or Baby The World Really Turns), by the Present. It received airplay on my local Top 40 stations in Miami, WQAM and WFUN. Unfortunately, it never charted nationally on the Billboard Hot 100. I thought it was a great record, especially with that eerie harp signature that starts the song and appears elsewhere therein. What I don't understand is why this record never became a national hit, and why the Present disappeared without a trace! Perhaps the Philips label, and its sister label Mercury failed to promote it properly, and was focused more on their other artists, like Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Spanky and Our Gang, etc. Still, "Many's the Slip" is a record I still enjoy listening to over 50 years later! Thank you kindly for this and the many other fine songs you wrote and produced during the 60's.
Hello Tony, what a joy to stumble by accident on your website. I am glad to see you're doing fine. I was this young canadian dude freshly arrived in L.A when I met you. You lend me a beautiful (and famous) Gretsh guitar, gave me $20 to buy a new pair of shoes and we started rehearsing your songs together and playing them at Norman's studio and at parties. We even played this gig at some theater with Klaus on bass. Wow I'll never forget it! My only regrets: Not having an iPhone in the days to capture all this in pictures and video. So much fond memories of you and this amazing bunch of people. I am so glad to be able to listen to your songs again.
Au plaisir mon ami.
Good afternoon mr. Powers I love your work on the Kiss Elder album. I read your bio and saw that you were born in the Bronx I am also from Morris Park Avenue just wondering where were you born in the Bronx I know you were busy man and thank you for your time in answering my question

Howie I came across your name . I rmember that Gerald gave it to me years ago . I hope you are well
Hi again, Mr. Powers! Have you heard the title track from Roger Waters's new album "Is this the life we really want"? It reminds me of your stuff so much - the lyric, the vocal delivery and the tiny twists in the chordal movements/arrangement. I love both of you as songwriters (and as performers of your own material), so it's kind of cool to listen to a Waters track and feel like I'm listening to a Powers track. Or maybe it's just me...
