Re: Alice Songs You Like More Than Most Other Fans Do

Loads of great songs already mentioned. Some I haven't seen yet: Six Hours - I love how subdued it is, evokes a really desolate sort of vibe, before exploding into the amazing solo at the end. My God - has a grandiose feel, plus some superb lead work. Love Should Never Feel Like This - nice, melodic...

Re: ALICE WRITING WITH DESMOND CHILD AGAIN.

Wasn't there mention of a Desmond Child album featuring Alice a few years ago? Did anything ever come of that?

Phil X talking about contributing to Brutal Planet

Did a search and didn't see anything about this. Just stumbled across a video on Youtube of Phil X (current playing guitar with Bon Jovi) talking about doing session work on Brutal Planet . He goes through some of the stuff he played on the title track and "Eat Some More". https://www.youtube.com/wa...

Re: biblical touch

I think The Last Temptation is his best solo album, and behind only School's Out in the overall canon. I love that sinister, creepy undercurrent it has. Very strong both musically and lyrically. Brutal Planet I'm less keen on. I do like a lot of the songs, but I'm not a big fan of how stiff and mech...

Re: New song and video "Don't give up" coming!

Eh, I like it for what it is. I did wonder how the lyrics would flow without sounding so clumsy, but didn't think of a conversational sort of delivery. Not unlike "Sanctuary" or "I'm Alive" (to a lesser extent). Instrumentally reminds me of "Pick Up the Bones" (as was already mentioned).

Re: For Veronica's Sake

This is one of my favourites off From the Inside. I'd like it to be played again, and paired off with "Sunset Babies".

Re: ‘Ol black eyes is back Tour

I went to the Manchester and Birmingham shows. Both fantastic of course, and managed to snag front row for both which was incredible. I think I preferred the Manc show as it was first, but Brum probably had slightly better sound. Chris Wyse did a good job filling in for Chuck, but lacked the energy ...

Re: ‘Ol black eyes is back Tour

Wow, if that setlist is legit, some wonderful surprises. And no ballad either... how often (if ever) has that happened since Alice starting recording them consistently in the 70s?

Re: 4 new albums announced

Some quotes from Alice about the new solo album from a recent AZcentral article. Seems it may be another concept album (can't recall if that's been brought up before). "There’s about four or five songs already written," he says. "I worked with Bob Ezrin in Nashville the last couple of weeks on a cou...

I got block B row A for Manchester and Birmingham. I take it this is front row for both unless they do row AA etc?

Aberdeen, new arena venue holding 10,000 - 12,000 ...mmmm
The Manchester seating plan indicates it's a half arena show, and last time they taped off the top tier of seating. So if there's a way to reduce capacity in Aberdeen, I imagine they'll do that.

Re: Dragon town revisited

I'd probably rank DT in the mid-lower tier of the Alice catalogue. I tend to prefer it to BP. It has a bit of a looser, more rock n roll feel to me, whereas BP felt more mechanical. DT is like the run down, depraved inner city to BP's industrial wasteland. My highlights would be "Triggerman" (great ...

Hey Stoopid era setlist question

Was having a flick through the Classic Rock mag that came with W2MN and remembered this pic of a HS era setlist. Trying to make out what the song fourth from bottom (after "Poison") is. Closest thing I could think of is "Hurricane Years" but I don't know if this was ever rehearsed or played (setlist...

Manchester - 1 ticket - block C row A - £25

Hi all,

Got a seated ticket for the Manchester gig I need to shift. Block C, row A, seat 4 (front row I believe, but quite a bit off to the side). £25 for any long standing member on here. Can meet at the venue as I'm still going to the show, but will be sat elsewhere.

Any interest let me know.
