Re: I Hate You

Just been reading an article in which Alice says that the omitted lines were about Bob taking the groups best songs and that he ruins them. Which of course, Alice continues, was not the case since he made them better.but Bob didnt want to get these lines in since he wanted the song to be about the b...

Re: Never Been Sold Before

One of my favourits !
I remember an article at the time MOL was released, where Alice says that some "mistakes" were made whilst recording this album, but they deliberately let them be. Don't know if this is an example ..

easy action

Hi Dennis a few questions on Easy Action i bought this record as my third ACG record ( BDB and LITD being the first ones). It was only until much later I found out that Michael Bruce sang on Beautiful Fly Away : was there a specific reason for this and am I correct that this happened only once ? a m...

Re: Detroit Stories Review

This album has an uphill battle with me, honestly. SHORT REVIEW I can see, buddy, but with me it has been quite the opposite...maybe the very low expectations I had have paid off, or maybe my 8yo son humming "Rock n roll" all day has put me in the right mood, I don’t really know. (..) What I feel i...

Re: muscle of love

My book covers most of my feelings about MOL. I didn't think it was our final album. Alice Cooper was our group. We worked hard on that album and I'm happy with what we did. Glad to hear that you like it too. First thing I ever heard of it, on a tiny radio from a pirate station( radio luxembourg) w...

Re: Detroit Stories Review

Is it just me or are the press reviews for this album the strongest for years? Certainly seems to be more 8,9 and 10 scores and some really strong commentary. An album for the neutrals? had same observation. Most simple explanation could be that ...it is indeed a good album! But your remark about t...

muscle of love

Hi Dennis thanks for being here ! Did you feel during the making of MOL that this was it, bandwise, or did it only become clearly afterwards that the band would split ? Some fans here find this album a lesser strong one than its predecessors while many others, including me, like it very much. How do...

Re: Detroit Stories #1 in Germany

Think I've read somewhere number 2 in the UK as well. #2 in the mid-weeks. I think the new official chart is due this evening which will show if he stayed there.. Also, DS was the apparently #1 biggest selling physical album (cd/vinyl) this week in the UK. The official chart includes streaming, vid...

Re: Touring band to feature on next album!

I am just a simple listener and so I don't understand all this Ezrin bashing....
When Alice always is full of praise for him calling him the george martin..could he be so wrong ?

Re: Touring band to feature on next album!

listening for the second time to DS : fun record and Alice seems to have fun as well, going slightly out of his comfortzone...
Great bandmeeting on youtube, thanks to Ryan. Hope the band will get the "reward" they deserve on the next album. Doubt if it will be called "road" :8): :8):

Re: Detroit Stories Review

Been listening just now ( it came right on time in a "limited edition with dvd :alice: ).. I quite like it and I am sure it will grow on me. My only remark so far is on I Hate You : kind of an inside joke for Alice fans, not really a song... As to the cooper-ation with Ezrin : imho it still works an...

Re: I Hate You

Totally agree with the sentiment of not automatically liking everything Alice does...Having said that,how can anyone go by 30 second clips one way or the other? Agree with you, Scotty. Always suprised though to see a lot of negativity whenever a new release is coming along, while we should be happy...

Re: A Paranormal Evening At The Olympia Paris DVD / Blu-Ray release

my guess is that the initial plan was to put out Paris as a video, but they shelved it cause of a potential release of the tour that had the original band in the encores. London was filmed I think? Dunno why, but when a London release never happened, the window for release was probably gone due to ...

Re: Social Debris

been listening now several times to these tree songs in a row. Rock'n Roll is sung with a lot of enthusiasm, Our love etc takes a little more time to get used to, but Social Debris is imho a real Alice song (however difficult it is to define that ) (like it more than the two songs that came with Par...

Re: Social Debris

. For example, the verses just makes me wanna sing "Addicted to Love" instead (or rather Weird Als "Addicted to Spuds" since I'm more familiar with that). strangely enough, I had the same impression (addicted to love). recently I heard "Talking in your sleep" (romantics) o n the radio and it made m...

Re: Social Debris

Really like this song, truly AC style.
does the word "single" means it could pop up in any chart somewhere (being promoted as such) or is it just meant as a teaser for the upcoming cd ?

Re: Overdue a biopic?

I think if there is ever going to be a biopic about Alice Cooper, it would be about the man that covers the ACG as well as Alice solo. The ACG had 5 albums... the biopic about "Alice Cooper " would count nearly 30 albums... there was already Super Duper.. The only persons interested in the story abo...
