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...

Re: ACG

Alice Cooper (the group) is done (for now). If it was to ever come back it would be with only 1 lead singer and sadly for ACG I imagine a large majority of concert goers would not see the hype or even know any different. Same thing applies to the solo band. I sure wouldn’t notice if that guitar pla...

Re: ACG

If Alice played a set on the same night as the remaining 3 original guys plus 2 more, I’d personally pick The Mike, Dennis and Neal show. My first Alice concert was in 1975, never had the chance to see the original band and was in The States when they done their recent reunion tour. I would be the ...

Re: Interesting (from Popoff book)

I don't know how many of you are familiar with a guy named Eddie Trunk. He does a couple of shows on Sirius XM radio, used to work for a record company, and was on VH1 Classic. He has a lot of opinions on the world of rock and I think he pretty much nailed it regarding an ACG reunion and why it isn'...

Re: ‘Ol black eyes is back Tour

I love that period too 86-2000, it is my favorite eras of Alice. The Live in the Flesh (Raise Your Fist and Yell tour) was some kind of good. RYFAY, Hey Stoopid, and The Last Temptation are three of my favorite Alice albums ever.

Re: Vampires Who's Laughing Now?

I agree with Si and there was no real push here in the United States either. One, Alice didn't even tour on ZCS or Dada so you had no publicity there. Two, hard rock was really struggling at the time and that is how Alice was seen. Here in the United States even a band like KISS for a while was havi...

Re: Vampires Who's Laughing Now?

I love all eras of Alice but my favorite eras are from 1986 to 2000. Prefer those to the original band and the early solo bands. Just a matter of personal tastes and dont see all those songs as "dumbed" down. The hair band albums were what was current at the time. It is the music business and I lov...

Re: ‘Ol black eyes is back Tour

If Alice played Freedom and snake bite this tour I would literally cream in my pants! Being a newbie to this board, and this year being my first AC concert, I wanted to ask you guys a question... Are the albums "Trash" and "hey stoopid" frowned upon by some of the more old school AC fans? I've seen...
