Re: Constrictor v RYFAY

I love both of those albums. Raise Your Fist and Yell is one of my favorite Alice albums ever. The second half of that album is amazing. Great, great stuff.

Re: Alice Unplugged

I definitely wouldn't care for this. I hated all the unplugged things bands were doing. A song here or there is fine but an entire show or album, no way.

Re: biblical touch

I am a bigger solo Alice fan than the original band (though I like the original band music too). The Last Temptation is my favorite Alice album ever and Brutal Planet would make my Top 5. I really like heavier Alice and would like to see him go back into a heavier direction.

Re: Alice with Tesla and Lita Ford Summer Tour

I am very excited about this tour. In addition to Alice of course, love Tesla one of my favorite 80s bands, and I have always been a big Lita Ford fan. This is a great triple lineup. Let's support this tour. There are a lot of big tours out there this summer.

Re: Paranormal CD 2 with original Alice Cooper band plus some live songs. Very good or excellent?

I am probably going to get slammed for this but I don't care that much for either one of the new original band songs. This is one of the reasons why I am not in favor of a full fledged reunion tour or album. The current band is my favorite of Alice's career. They are are great players and the energy...

I don't think Hey Stoopid was played at the Cabo show.

Re: ‘Ol black eyes is back Tour

My Stars didn't seem to get much reaction either, I wouldn't be shocked to see that go even though I love it. Honestly and this may come across as a criticism and I don't mean it this way but that is part of the problem that bands have when they become stagnant for years with their playlists. It ge...

Re: ‘Ol black eyes is back Tour

Not sure how true it is but someone on another forum said their friend did the M&G and Alice told him they were going to swap out two of the songs during the Halestorm tour and "Desperado" was coming back. I saw them Saturday and nothing has changed yet. I would be down with that if it replaced Rap...

Re: ‘Ol black eyes is back Tour

Keep in mind that the nostalgia wave that that carried '70s and early '80s culture back into fashion has not yet reached the late '80s and early '90s. In a few more years the teenagers of that era will begin hitting middle age and you may be surprised. Of course popular media will probably push bac...

Re: ‘Ol black eyes is back Tour

There are several things I want to comment on so I am not going to quote everyone, but just my own two cents. 1) I love the hair bands and there is a good following for that. Take the syndicated show, Dee Snider's House of Hair. It has been around over 20 years and is on over 200 stations. There are...

Re: ‘Ol black eyes is back Tour

My point being is there is great music from all eras and I am glad that on this tour some great 80's songs are remembered and for some people Roses on White Lace is every bit as good of a song and significant as Eighteen is for others. No. I agree with much of what you said but 'I'm Eighteen' is si...

Re: ‘Ol black eyes is back Tour

Bed Of Nails is the GIANT turd in the whole set. Maybe he'll replace "My Stars" with the even bigger steamer "House Of Fire". If he dropped "My Stars" (which is THE best song in his catalog) I lost a mountain of respect for Alice. For years I've spent defending his "business" decisions to play sets...

Re: ‘Ol black eyes is back Tour

We all have our different preferences but I have a different take. First of all, Nita Strauss is the highlight of this tour as usual. She is so good and adds so much energy to the show and has brought so much new found recognition for Alice. I like the fact he has gone into a little bit heavier soun...

Re: Interesting (from Popoff book)

Not to mention outside of Alice himself, no one gets louder cheers than Nita. She and Alice were featured on the cover of Guitar World magazine. When she appeared on some WWE broadcast it showed Alice Cooper guitarist. She has helped Alice publicity wise. She has been a true asset to the band and ca...

Re: ‘Ol black eyes is back Tour

Are there any songs that AC has never played live that you'd love to hear? I don't think he's ever played "this maniac's in love with you" "why trust you" or "hell is living with out you" live. Or "might as well be on mars" or "little by little" for that matter. There are many as I am a bigger fan ...

Re: Interesting (from Popoff book)

[Why do you assume the band want to make a 70s sounding record? I know Alice live is a nostalgia act but we shouldn't assume the band want to just sound retro. Alice has said in the past that he wants a Killer sound to an album so it might get a little confusing. I would be happy as I'm sure many ot...

Re: Interesting (from Popoff book)

I guess this is my question and I think Si did an excellent job in his commentary. Where does it end? Let's say the original band does 4-5 full shows. Are people content with going to New York, L.A., London to see this? Because the average rock fan has basically always considered Alice a solo artist...
