Re: Rise - First reviews

new review in a normally very critical Dutch mag, gives the album 4 out of 5 stars ! they had not expected anything anymore form this superhobbygroup, after the first cd which they thought to be unnecessary . they cannot find anything wrong on this album, with 3 covers honoring the original songs de...

Re: I LOVE AMERICA. THE LAST WARNER BROTHERS 45!

about Prakash John problably not the interview Si was referring to, but nevertheless with some interesting remarks concerning Alice. How Dick Wagner could sing all the parts if Alice couldn't make it, etc.. eg : Wagner's writing was the cornerstone of Alice's success with Welcome to My Nightmare. Wh...

Re: List some youtube videos of Alice Cooper that should be officially released on dvd

don't know if you include this kind of videos, but the interview with James Clive is so good... ( also because of the interviewer) ..

Re: I LOVE AMERICA. THE LAST WARNER BROTHERS 45!

Dyslexia as a AC single ? It's a catchy tune (like Rise), but nothing I would associate with Alice , imo .. I guess no one would recognise the AC sound in it, isn't it ? (not even the so recognisable sound of his voice ..) Textwise Fresh blood would be more appropriate, theme being the same as a son...

Re: Best engineered album?

I got an idea of what the work of Ezrin means while looking at the dvd that came with the latest Deep Purple (infinite).
fascinating to see how songs are being made..

Re: COULD BOND HAVE SAVED ALICE COOPER?

when Alice did the Muppets, some here thought he was kind of selling out, losing his hard image( and that was after WTMN when he was already straying away from his "old" image.. imo the bond song may have come too early to mean something for this -at that time- still hard rocking band with a reputat...

Re: FOR BRITAIN ONLY

always loved that song. If memory serves me well, I first saw it on a bootleg vinyl copy ages ago, with the Alice in SF outfit : first picture I saw of that other Alice ,(not the Alice I knew) and since I "had already" all the other songs, I didn't buy it then ( how wrong can you be?!) Wasn't until ...

Re: Hollywood Vampires "We Gotta Rise" Live - at The Greek Theatre 2019

Am I the only one here to find this a very weird song to appear on a rock album? Be it that the spoken part somehow reminds me of the end of Elected ( no coincidence I guess) , but it's lacking the power Elected had from its first notes.. Catchy yes, but not what I expected/hoped to hear from HV or ...

Re: 4 new albums announced

Publicanimal #9.. It's not so much lies, it's more like advertising a new show, cd, article, whatever.. I guess the Alice we grew up with was much more a mystery to us, there were no tons of interviews to be read, Alice did'nt have to say anything at all ....so hardly could be accused of repeating h...

Re: Interesting (from Popoff book)

Couldn' it just be that Neal and Mike and Dennis are just plain glad about having the opportunity to do something with Alice again ( and of course would enjoy to do more ?)
I doubt they consider it to be "crumbles" thrown by Alice. They managed to do their things for 45 years now ..without Alice.

Re: ACG

personally I don't think this would work. I remember years ago George Michael doing Somebody to Love (Queen ) in a very good way and could have replaced Freddy imo, and that singer Queen have at this time is also doing fine, but, they sound like Queen again. Was not the case with Paul Rodgers and Qu...
