Re: Never Been Sold Before

I always felt that the riff to “Never Been Sold Before” was “borrowed” by Nazareth for “Hair of the Dog.”

Re: G.B. solos

The Working Up a Sweat and Big Apple Dreamin solos were played by Dick Wagner. Mick Mashbir traded solos with Michael on Hard Hearted Alice. Mick Mashbir also played the solos on Never Been Sold Before and Woman Machine. Teenage Lament as has been mentioned was played by Michael Bruce, he even play...

Re: G.B. solos

I always felt that the solo on “Teenage Lament” was very “Glenish.” The note bending and feel always reminded me of the playing on “Dwight Frye.” Also, “Living” should be considered a psychedelic nugget, up there with The Chocolate Watchband, Bubble Puppy, The Electric Prunes, etc.

Concerts, Beatles, and gear.

Hi Dennis, Thanks for doing this for your fans. 1. What was your favorite concert that you attended (not as a performer)? 2. Who is your favorite Beatle and why? 3. Has Alice ever stated his opinion of Battle Axe to you? 4. Do you have a home studio? If so, could you mention some of your favorite ge...

Thanks again, SI! I didn’t realize Detroit Stories was on the discography and lyrics page yet.

Re: I Hate You

Thanks, SI. I haven’t had a chance to pick up the CD yet, so I’ve not seen the lyrics. Planning on getting it this week. I hope it hits the top ten in America & the UK.

Re: I Hate You

Thanks for the order of the band. Yeah, just that intro reminds me of Serious. Great tune. I think it’s time for an entire original band album. Doesn’t Alice realize that yet?!!?

Re: I Hate You

The intro guitar reminds me of the intro to “Serious.” Anyone notice that. I doubt it was intentional. Anyway, great tune. Can anyone specify which person sings which part? I only recognize Alice. Thanks

Re: Detroit Stories Review

I was just reading an article about it and they mentioned Alice and Sheryl both had covid this year. Never heard about it, but fortunately they’re okay. Alice had a quote about it, too.

Re: Is anyone home ?

Such a great song. Alice delving into Beatlesque pop rock with jangly guitars, strings, tremeloed guitar, etc... Sounds like something Mike Bruce would have co-written with Alice. I always wished he would have explored that style further.

Re: Flush the Fashion 40th Anniversary

Some information here helps clear up the Shenandoah point. https://rockonworkshop.wordpress.com/2012/02/04/ro-special-birthday-edition-alice-cooper-and-david-carron/ Great link. Like Mr. Barlow said, had no idea Davey Johnstone suggested the song to Alice. I always just assumed RT Baker brought it ...

Daggers and Contracts wrote "...this was is a breath of fresh air by RTB just to push into the next track & the next to keep it interesting."

I love that line too! Another favorite of mine is also off of Zipper in "No Baloney Homosapians" when Alice refers to "the blood and gutty human race".

Yes! Great line.

Re: Flush the Fashion 40th Anniversary

Mr. Barlow- Good point on the pre-Internet mystique of an artist. Most reviews weren't published until after an album was released and often times minimal prepublicity unless you searched Circus, Creem, or any other rock publication. So, in many cases an album appeared which was always a great treat...

Re: Flush the Fashion 40th Anniversary

Enjoying all the great responses. Pitkin88- I agree, Warners did drop the ball on promoting Clones. Could've been a top ten hit, perfect for the times, still a classic. Tuneylune- great description, "lean & mean." Babysquid- Break out the album and crank it up! Saint&Sinner- Wish there was a box set...

Flush the Fashion 40th Anniversary

It's hard to believe FTF will be 40 years' old in 2020. I bought it the day it came out and immediately loved it. Admittedly, I was surprised by the complete reinvention of Alice (I loved From the Inside and saw the incredible Madhouse Rocks tour) but felt it was so cool that he changed his image an...

Re: Best engineered album?

It's crazy isn't it. I record in a little practise room in my house and I have 16 channel inputs and get semi good sound quality/recordings. I think in the 80's my studio/practise room would have cost tens of thousands, and now I use it to tinker around in for fun! Love it. Great explanation Mr.Blu...
