Re: New album cover

I had a feeling Steven might go all Cray Crayon this if I responded. Maybe you need another cold beer me old mate. I don't even remember slagging off Neal but as Mr Barlow said that movie is beyond hideous and the Pop ( he left out the L ) album songs are almost as bad as the Thomas Cook holiday br...

Re: New album cover

I think you are being a bit unfair here. There are genuine concerns about not only more covers but almost all of Breadcrumbs being on the new recording. I don't see that as negativity nor do I see those complaining about the cover being negative either. There has been a pretty big decline in the ar...

Re: New album cover

Lot’s of negativity on here, no surprise there then! When Rock n’ Roll was covered by Detroit with Mitch Ryder, which as with Alice’s version, was produced by Bob Ezrin with Steve Hunter on guitar, when Lou Reed heard it, it made him get Bob and Steve for Berlin. Drummer Johnny "Bee" Badanjek who pl...

Re: Bob Ezrin-Past, Present And Future

I don't come on here much these days, and seeing some of the tripe written in this thread i've just remembered why! With the exception of From the Inside, every album under the Alice Cooper moniker that wasn't produced by Bob Ezrin would have been better if he had not only produced it but had a hand...

Re: who played what on Muscle of love.

I always thought that solo was Mick as Michael complained that Mick played too many creamy solos on the album and that solo ( it's great ) I would think was creamy. It was definitely the standout song for a single. In his book No More Mr. Nice Guy, MB says that it was the slide guitar parts that Mi...

Re: He's human after all!!!

On the Brutal Planet album the E string was tuned down one and a half tones or steps so the E string was pitching at C# instead of E and the other strings down a semi tone. Have a listen to Wicked Young Man on that album and if you play the guitar tune the whole thing down a semi tone except the E w...

Re: His voice is too ugly to sing "Poison"

Rock n' Roll are you mentally retarded or just a wind up merchant? Alice never really got the credit of how great a rock singer he was, all the theatrical stuff often masked the music but it was just Icing on the cake and the cake took a long time to bake. His recorded voice from 1971-1973 was the m...

If you want to know how money is ripped off songwriters and musicians, stop what you are doing for the next 45 mins and listen to this, where there's a hit there's a writ!

Re: Bruce Roberts

By the way David Foster had no part in writing Wish I Were Born In Beverly Hills. The performance songwriting royalties (radio play etc..) are split equally between Alice, Dick Wagner estate and Bernie Taupin who get 16.67% each with the publisher Warner Chappel getting the rest and all of the mecha...
