Re: Good to see you again,AC

I thought I knew this video as I bought it on vhs in the 80’s. I bought it via an ad in Kerrang magazine. I’ve now seen on here that this is referred to as a bootleg. There are no skits between the songs, except the Lady Is A Tramp section at the beginning. Instead it had clips from old films and cl...

Re: Chris Sutton book

Also enticed me to go back and have another in depth listen to PFY and EA. Same here! I've owned those albums for years and have tried a few times to get into them. I think I also made the mistake of lumping the 2 together as being the 'pre-Ezrin' albums. They are actually very different to each ot...

Tribute Bands

Hi Dennis, The question about a Swedish band called Billion Dollar Babies made me think about tributes. My opinion is that the Swedish band are doing no harm, in fact they list Alice Cooper as an influence so any fan of theirs will almost certainly spend some money on AC music. I am aware of 3 or 4 ...

Re: Good to see you again,AC

I also see no problem with hiding the band for WTMN or any shows after that, as people are paying to see Alice rather than the band. Hiding the band in any shows before WTMN is wrong though, as that would be like paying to see Black Sabbath and only seeing Ozzy.

Re: Chris Sutton book

I've just ordered it from Hive for £10.49 including postage! That's the cheapest I'd seen and they donate money to a bookshop of your choice. Seems like a win-win to me. I'd never heard of them before, but decided I wanted to try avoiding Mr Amazon. https://www.hive.co.uk/Product/Chris-Sutton/Alice-...

Re: PRETTIES FOR YOU question

Sorry for sort of hijacking the thread, but I had a question similar to VinceRaven above: Do you have a preference for the type of songs you play?

Sun Arise

Hi Dennis. I'm a huge fan of yours. I was telling my wife recently how I used to use a couple of pieces of track for my HotWheels cars as a pretend bass and I'd play along to AC records in my bedroom, doing your high kicks. That Hot Wheels track never went out of tune you know? :rock: :) I've always...

Re: Toyah& Robert - Sunday Lunch

I liked the fact that Alice and the rest of the band obviously knew who Robert was, but didn't have a clue about Toyah! In the UK it'd be the other way round for most people.

Re: Touring band to feature on next album!

I agree that the current band are excellent and I'd be interested to hear what they come up with. It could be terrible as they are such a diverse bunch, but it could also be brilliant. It must feel odd to them that they are expected to praise Alice's new album when most of them didn't play on it. It...

Re: Album opinion change

I think that School's out is a great song, but I've heard it soooo many times! I think it has some really clever lyrics too - "Well we got no class, and we got no Principles". I was very young when my brother explained the double-meanings of those lyrics. I don't think Elected or School's Out are ba...

Re: Album opinion change

I agree about School's Out. I became obsessed with Alice around 1984. I loved the sleeve with the folding out desk, but didn't play that album nearly as much as the others. I now think it's one of my favourites, although I usually skip Track 1! It was such an odd time to become a fan, as I'd trawl 2...

Re: You’re a movie lyric

The lyrics page on this site is great. I couldn't believe how many songs I had been singing wrong for years! On 'You're a Movie' verse 2 starts "The bullets repel off my metals" - shouldn't that be medals, rather than metals?

Re: Johnny Depp verdict

From what I've seen & read Depp & Heard were both abusers. However, in this day & time the courts are weighted in the account of the woman. No man should hit a woman - ever! Walk away, distance yourselves, please. The case wasn't Heard vs Depp, it was The Sun vs Depp. He didn't like The Sun calling...

but it is a fact that he has been found to be a wife beater in a court of law. I'm not sure this is correct. Show me the verdict that convicted Depp of Domestic abuse. You are correct that he hasn't been convicted of anything, however a judge has ruled that the Sun's 2018 report labelling him a "wi...

Re: Johnny Depp verdict

it does make things a bit awkward for Alice. Should the guy who co-wrote Only Women Bleed really be seen to support a verified wife-beater? My guess is that it won't really matter as Depp will probably disappear into obscurity now anyway and I don't think he'd want to go on-stage in the near future ...

Does this spell the end for the Hollywood Vampires? I understand that there are differing opinions about Johnny Depp, and I am not trying to stir or start a controversial discussion, but it is a fact that he has been found to be a wife beater in a court of law. Can Alice Cooper really share a stage ...
