Last Nights Xmas Pudding
Thanks to Mistershivers on the message baord fro this report of last nights fun and games:
Just got back from the show. 4 1/2 hours that went by pretty quick. High lights were Dan Quayle front row center for the show. He left after intermission. Cheap Trick closed out part 1 and was backed by Alices band, Alice said that he practiced with the band doing the vocals during the week. They did "I want you to want me", "California man" and "Surrender". Gin Blossoms did a nice set of 3 and Roger Clyne and the peacemakers did a nice set. Glen Cambell did "Rhinestone Cowboy" and "Little drummer boy" on the bagpipes.Sinbad was funny as were most of the comedians.Sinbad introduced Nugent who did 2 songs "Klstrphnky" and "Wang dang sweet poontang" with his touring drummer and Alices bassist then had Jack Blades come out for "Cat Scratch Fever". He then brought out Shaw and Cartellone for 3 more Damn Yankees songs. These guys were hot and on the money. They did "Dont tread on me", "High enough" and "Coming of age". Funny bit where Shaw and Blades did a countryfied Eighteen on acoustic guitar which Nugent grabbed then smashed on stage. Alices set was "No more mr nice guy", "Eighteen", "Be My Lover" and "Schools out". Damn Yankees joined Alices band with Glen Campbell for a smoking "Run Rudolph Run" which featured solos from everyone and A few others joined in on Jingle bells as the finale. Pudding was chocolate and the show opened with some guy in a medival outfit and mask doing bells which were set up on this huge contraption. The other guests were locals and were pretty good but it was the Damn Yankees night. Hard to believe how good the harmonys and all were. Jessi Colter(Waylon Jennings wife) did a couple of nice songs including a cool bluesy version of Silent Night.They handed some magazine called Risen out pre show that had this pro christian interview of Alice. Some of it was weird because Alice said some stuff that was off the mark in the interview. Worth the money and it was time well spent. Emcees were Mike Wilson, Mark Cordes,and Danny Zelisko.

Dick Wagner on Ohio Shooting
By now everyone should have heard the tragic news about the [link=http://www.damageplan.com]Damage Plan show in Ohio on Wednesday night when Ex-Pantera guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott and audience were shot dead during a live show. I'm sure the whole SickthingsUK community's thoughts go out to the families of those killed or injured in this horrible affair.
Message Board member Devon has posted an exclusive message from [link=http://www.wagnermusic.com/]Dick Wagner on his thoughts about the incident which I'll repost here:
"I've been a professional musician for 40 years and have never seen a situation like the shootings in Columbus, Ohio. There has always been "Security" at concerts, but there has not always been such a climate of violence in the society, and so unfortunately the notion of what "Security" means in this era, has no relationship to situations I grew up on and performed in. The unfortunate violence experienced in Ohio is a warning to all that it is time to re-think the "Coolness" of guns and all types of violence. Peace and Harmony children. It's so much better for your well being."
Dick Wagner (Dec. 9th 2004)

Cover gets press
It's been really quiet recently with the tour over and the band now working on material for the new album but [link=http://www.montclairtimes.com/page.php?page=8756]this article caught my eye as it has a few favourable mentions for Alice. It's about a recent cover version of "Elected" that seems to be getting some exposure.
