Re: Under My Wheels inspired Social Debris alternate solo ending that Bob Ezrin nearly used

Thanks for the link. It's always great to hear alternative takes or parts of songs that didn't make it onto an album.

Re: Battle Axe

Btw, I think re-recording the BA album w/Alice on vocals could potentially be the pinnacle of Alice's (and the ACG's) entire career. Of course as Dennis stated, it would be up to Alice and Shep. Ted With the Vampires tour cancelled & the "Next Lp" being worked on this could be a great opportunity! ...

Re: Battle Axe

Is the Cherry Red version of Battle Axe sourced from the master tapes, or was it sourced from vinyl? If I remember correctly, the first CD version was sourced from an LP. I have the Complete Battle Axe 3CD release on New Millennium Records; it was stated in the CD booklet that the original BA album...

Re: sense of finality

There was a clause in our Warner Bros. contract that would allow us to record a soundtrack with another label. That clause was used for Welcome To My Nightmare rather than the group, even though Atlantic was affiliated with Warner Bros. That's why the WTMN film was created. As for Goes To Hell, I t...

I just checked the 'Billion Dollar Babies' chapter in Michael's book; unfortunately I couldn't find any mention of Raped and Freezin' there.

Fireball is not OG.
It was written by and features Dennis, so used creative license and included it, as one that could conceivably have been on an ACG album.
Same with the Sound Of A
Including both makes sense to me too.

I saw your response. I was making what I thought was a humourous remark, as I had no idea you hadn't read Dennis' book << shocked >>

Re: Detroit Stories Review

Completely disagree with the diehard “career’s been over for decades” folk. The fact we are here proves the longevity. The ACG era would be long buried in the desert without the solo career. Since you refer to us as 'diehard' I'm not certain you completely disagree. If it wasn't for Alice's solo ca...

Steven Crayn is from Detroit or maybe Ireland. I'm not sure.
Si stated in another thread here that Mr. Crayn is from London (England).

It is a fair comment as well, I dont know about Liverpool but would have played to London before so he can make that statement and its not completely false
Alice had previously played London w/the ACG in 1971 and '72 but not Liverpool so I agree with rgallie's comment.

Re: Social Debris

I would pick Mick Mashbir as he helped write at least 1 ACG song: Hard Hearted Alice. I don't see how Zombie (if you're referring to Rob Zombie) and the 'rest of' the touring band would be helpful but maybe I just require some further explanation regarding thrashing out the details.

Why don't we lock AC, Neal, Dennis, Michael & Roxie in a room or rooms. Feed them, give them fresh linens & clothing & not let them out until they've written 20+ songs? Then bring in Bob (or Zombie) & the rest of the touring band to thrash out the details? :rock: I would pick Mick Mashbir as he hel...

Re: Social Debris

I just watched the Official Video for the song on YouTube. Generally the visual aspect of the video is appealing to me but I agree w/some others here that the song itself isn't anything special. I too am impressed with the solo though. Great job, Steven!

Re: The Alice Cooper Show 1977

Of course if Alice had released a live album a few years later (in the early 80's) there's no guarantee it would have been much better. The Glasgow 1982 album would suggest it would have been. But this makes me think, we actually DO now have an ACG live album (a few actually). I'm not familiar with...

In some cases I very much prefer live versions of songs over the original studio recordings, i.e. those on Kiss Alive! In the case of Made in Japan and BDB, I really like both the live and corresponding studio renditions. If the ACG had recorded and released a live album prior to going their separat...
