Re: Tribute Bands

I avoided door deals so perhaps they were planning to bump us without pay. That would have been my next question. Thank you! :clap: I've read that Chuck Berry wanted cash in hand before he hit the stage with a pick-up Band. I believe that The Boss & E Street was one of 'em. Just showed up in his Ca...

Re: 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

Thanks Dennis, I don't see why taking Michael out of the photo gave it a "cleaner" look. Just another singer-centric knee jerk executive decision. ::((: Since the film was featuring a Concert by the ACG & included the band in other settings, shouldn't a photo of the whole band onstage been more of a...

Well played Dennis!
With the internet you look up Billion Dollar Babies & it points to ACG LP & the Billion Dollar Babies U.S. Band.
"Send Lawyers Guns & Money!" Cease & desist costs $$$ & if they're not making any - let it be!

Re: Promoters and Alice Cooper

I have no problem with you chipping in but only Dennis can answer this. No negativity at all. It's pretty common knowledge here how big a fan of the band I am. I don't need to prove anything. Dennis brought up that it was just as they were catching their stride it was over. I have never questioned ...

I have to ask why was Michael Bruce airbrushed from the cover?
I was told that they wanted the cover to have a cleaner look.
Is there a photo available w/Michael on stage also?

Re: No Alice for RSD?

I would of liked to have the full concert from "The Alice Cooper Show" which was edited on one vinyl. I believe they had a few more songs on that tour from Lace and Whiskey album called 'King of The Silver Screen' tour. Alice hates it and it's hardly a fan favorite. Never gonna happen. P88, I think...

Re: No Alice for RSD?

Seems like Alice has nothing lined up for RSD this year.. Oh Well, With "Breadcrumbs" & the recent "Detroit Stories" did you really think during these Covid times they were digging around researching for a knee-jerk release? Sure they could have asked us but we have Kyler & Dennis so... Nudge, Nudg...

Re: Alice Cooper in the 70’s Book

Hi Dennis I’ve just started reading this book and whilst I’m enjoying it there’s a couple of things in the section about Killer which I think either I or the author might have gotten wrong. The book states that the Strings on Halo of Flies, Be My Lover and the brass on Dead Babies was Bob Ezrin on ...

Re: Hollywood Vampires tour cancelled?

Don't forget one of AC's Hollywood buddies George Burns had dates booked for past his 100th Birthday.
He made it to 100 but was too ill to perform & passed shortly after. :( RIP George Burns & Gracie Allen.
2023 isn't that far away & we may have a handle on this by then! :HEART:

Re: More Vampires? Dreamy!

1 cover they passed on was the disputed Thunders/Ramones composition of "Chinese Rocks". :x Supposedly AC never went down that fork in the road but, it's a great tune! It would be an omission to pass it by! :HEART: As far as "You Can't Put Your Arms Around a Memory" it's a good tune but way too tame...

Re: More Vampires? Dreamy!

So, the band is good, Johnny is writing & they're going to record another LP.
Maybe, if the others bring something to the table we may not have so many covers?

Re: Killer - 50 Years Later

Thanks, I was just gauging the amount of interest & available funds to go a bit farther.
Killer with a handful of bonus would be a keeper also! :alice:
P.S. Is anybody considering a cover version of "My Stars"?

Re: Killer - 50 Years Later

Just a question. Are we now talking about a handful of extra tracks or a double CD? If it stays a single CD release I'm interested in a couple of ACG covers but, if it expands into the ACG catalogue - please focus on "Killer" for 1 & a 2nd disc of awesome of ACG "Non - Killer" tracks! :clap: I'll bu...

Re: Battle Axe

Is the Cherry Red version of Battle Axe sourced from the master tapes, or was it sourced from vinyl? If I remember correctly, the first CD version was sourced from an LP. I have the Complete Battle Axe 3CD release on New Millennium Records; it was stated in the CD booklet that the original BA album...
