Re: Old School Uncool

That album cover is uncomfortably bad. Just scrolling through the news page here it first looked like someone hacked the site with a porn ad. Even if you wanted to make that stupid choice and have a woman in bikini on the cover that's the picture you choose? A random stock softcore porn image? The a...

Re: Desmond Child

For what it's worth last time they collaborated, "I am Made of You" on W2MN, it was really darn good IMO.

Is this the first time the straightjacket's been used for another song than Dwight Fry?
No it isn't. It's been used in 1991 for Wind up toy.
I thought they used the cage for that?

Re: Rise - First reviews

I think they were nervous that they could pull off an album of originals and threw these needless covers on. Either that or they just wanted to include them because they enjoy playing them live. At least with cds you can burn a copy without the covers. Maybe the track running will play better. I sk...

Re: Rise - First reviews

Heroes is ok with me ( and I like Bowie) for he stayed as close to the original as possible ( the way Alice did with Eleanor Rigby). Sometimes I read here that he adds nothing to it, but, as it is very good song, it would be hard to make it better, wouldn't it ? That's the thing for me - when it's ...

Re: Analyzing & The Meaning Of Lyrics & Songs

six hours .. always wondered about this song : six hours till when ? why ? wash the dust from your hair now.... : what happened ?? I remember reading two theories I liked back when Dirty Diamonds was new. 1) They're having an affair and in six hours she has to return to her husband. 2) She's a ghos...

Re: Rise - First reviews

"Heroes" is one of those songs were I can understand why they would want to cover it live on tour but this studio version adds nothing new to the song and just ends up being boring.

Re: COULD BOND HAVE SAVED ALICE COOPER?

Question for Swinger. If Mr Barlow is offending you so much how can you support an artist that openly makes fun of gays and transgenders? We have had The Prettiest Cop on the Block, King Of The Silver Screen, Genuine American Girl, The Saga of Jesse Jane and I think one more that escapes me. I wasn...

Re: COULD BOND HAVE SAVED ALICE COOPER?

I was expecting the same backlash--and of course--it came once again in the form of YOU. If you simply found it "not funny" than why the big LGBT rant? You mean the "rant" where the point was that maybe LGBTQ people also enjoy Alice and it's silly that a bunch of old straight men sit and claim we w...

Don't call me sonny and I won't call you old fart, old fart. ;) Once again, I'm not offended by what you write, I just don't find you funny - and those are not the same thing. I will however admit I think it's silly that you write a long spiel about how easily people are offended and how you don't c...

Gee old fart, I never said what you can or cannot say - have your "gay ray" or "queer beer" if you want. But apparently you can say how people would or would not be offended by Alice and how silly of them it is to be offended - when those offended people only exist in your own head. Personally I wou...

Re: COULD BOND HAVE SAVED ALICE COOPER?

I doubt that video is even on their radar. Might be good publicity for Alice if it appears though. Yeah, cause LGBTQ people obviously can't be Alice Cooper fans. And they obviously didn't exist before now. No, why would some of us enjoy the music of a man who transgressed gender norms and always se...

Re: COULD BOND HAVE SAVED ALICE COOPER?

I know what you mean. (well I don't know what you mean by "them" - as if it's an organization or something) That was my point, if it's on any LGBTQ peoples radar it's because they're already Alice fans - why else would anyone care about an obscure concert film from the 70s.

Re: COULD BOND HAVE SAVED ALICE COOPER?

I wonder if the LBGTQ will lead a protest to have Martin Luther Queen removed from The Strange Case concert video. Also, could Alice be accused on "identity appropriation" as he has a woman's name, made his name in the early days dressing in women's clothes when he actually is a heterosexual male. ...

Part of me is surprised that they haven't gotten Johnny Depp to do a voice-over just so they could use it for PR.
It probably wouldn’t be the best PR at the moment
