Re: Touring band to feature on next album!

Sorry I thought you were talking about just Alice and recently. I was talking about Ezrin over the times I thought it was pretty clear there but, I do fail at the details in English often enough to understand that it is most likely my mistake. Sorry. Still, Ezrin has always swapped players, it seem...

Re: Touring band to feature on next album!

It would be great to see. I very much doubt it as long as Ezrin is producing. He has never been shy to just replace the stuff played by actual band members with the parts played by his own guys. He has always done it and often not been too straight about it, either. I have ranted enough on this bef...

Re: Johnny Depp verdict

All his ex's stood up in court to defend his character which is incredible, when you think about it. Actually I don't think they did appear in this specific case (could be wrong). They DID offer to appear and they wrote personal statements, but in the end Depp's people didn't think they needed to c...

Re: Are Alice's Touring Days Over?

Good points and I cannot really disagree with any of them. However, I find it difficult to see Alice just fading away, unless the pandemic runs for years and gives him no options. I think he would work really hard to make some kind of farewell tour or something else to celebrate his career before re...

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

It's depressing to know that the tour band didn't play on the track... what's wrong with Cooper/Ezrin for sake's sake!? The same that has been wrong with Ezrin since the 70s. But it is what it is. And frankly in this instance the track was already there from Detroit sessions, so fair enough. The to...

Re: Old School Uncool

Oh, I like Paranormal as well and great many other records by guys that are no spring chicken. I simply meant that for _some_ older rockers it might not be quite that easy to realize how sleezy and borderline criminal it sounds when they sing about sweet sixteens. They have been doing that all their...

Re: Old School Uncool

Pop 85-96 sounds britpop to me. Some of it can be all at some times, but none of this was all that good. The cover might be an attempted joke to make funny of those times. I must agree that it is a massive miss, though. I am a bit surprised about the reaction to the way the guys age. They are gettin...

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

Having listened to it more, I think I definitely like it. I like it more than pretty much anything from recent years, apart from the Fireball. I know it's not going to last and the song will never be seen live - neither is Fireball apparently - but right now I like it a lot.

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

I think the talking makes sense and fits in pretty well. The song is completely different from what I expected after seeing the lyrics. Pretty good so far but it needs more listening.

Whatever happened to the record that the touring band were planning a couple of years ago? Or did I make that up in my head?

Re: 65 Quid For an Autograph!

What makes people think they are entitled to this or that over someone else for free? It's not all about only Alice, you see, it's about other fans too. There is a limited amount of time. There are ways to spread it, such as queuing to be there before the time runs out, or a simple thing of being th...

Re: Paranormal CD 2 with original Alice Cooper band plus some live songs. Very good or excellent?

Which brings me to your first paragraph. Bands can't return to the original sound that they had. Nobody has ever been able to do it. Quite a few people in this forum seem to think that AC(G) will be the first ones to get the magic back. I give it a 0,0001% chance. It doesn't mean that I hate the id...

Well, with the way things have been going for a while now and considering W2MN and Paranormal, it would be news if they were not featured. Either way - looking forward to it.

I like everything Alice does, .. almost. HV does nothing for me, Breadcrumbs is better. But so far I am not that convinced. It did take a while for me to really get into Paranormal, too, though. No word on the other solo record that was rumoured a year or so ago when he was doing two solo records an...
