Re: The Alice Cooper Show 1977

I never really cared much for live albums with a few exceptions, but this live album is one of the worst. I don't recall Wagner talking about it in his book but I will give it another look. I can understand why he chose not to talk about it as I'm sure it was pushed out by WB with little input by an...

Re: In the Court of the Cooper King

Toyah would make a perfect Baby Jane Hudson in a musical version of "Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?". The character Blanche, Jane's sister , can be re-written as a man and become Jane's brother. A perfect role for Alice. Alice always wanted to stretch out into Broadway well here's his chance. Are y...

Re: In the Court of the Cooper King

I actually enjoyed this. It's great to see Fripp having fun with nonsense. It would be great to see these two collaborate with Alice on some sort of similar lighthearted fun.

Alice and Toyah working together on something would be a riot.

Re: New single - 'Our Love Will Change The World'

I don't watch videos when I listen to music. Regardless of the visuals in the video, this has zero ---absolutely zero--connection to his horror character. His delivery, phrasing and overall tone of the song is far from "horror Alice". Much in the same way his delivery and phrasing on most of "Trash"...

Re: New single - 'Our Love Will Change The World'

I absolutely LOVE IT! What a breath of fresh air! Alice stepping out of the tired old horror schlock with great results. This reminds me of the "black out" years (my favorite era) where Alice experimented and tried new ideas and sounds and stepped away from the "classic" character. My favorite thing...

Re: Rock meets Classic Zurich

I agree. Who chose that steaming turd for the set? My Stars would be incredible as would Halo Of Flies. There are so many great songs that would lend themselves to an orchestral arrangement. Go To Hell, Cleansed By Fire, Former Lee Warmer...just to name a few. Maybe the genius who picked Bed Of Pota...

Re: comparing ACG to Alice solo in terms of rating enjoyment

I never compare them as to me they are two distinct entities. The original band with Ezrin was a band in their prime who went out on top...even if it was unwillingly. Ezrin deserves much more credit when it comes to the songwriting. It's my opinion he should have received a credit on nearly every so...

Re: An Alice Cooper vinyl box set

A book is a great idea, especially if the cover is as visually stunning as the covers of "Detroit Stories" and "Paranormal".

Re: Alice's grey hair

It looks to me like he is growing it out and going to keep the gray. I wonder if it has anything to do with transitioning to a different phase of his career. Touring won't happen at least until 2022 by the time it all shakes out and by that time he may have moved into a new phase. I can see him gett...

Re: Alice's grey hair

Its my opinion that the character would look more sinister as with wild unmanaged gray hair.....or pulled up in a bun like Norman Bates mother. crazy old man/lady with a hatchet

Re: Alice's grey hair

Alice has said he's been dying his hair since the 1980s. I think he said he went gray before he hit 40.

I think he should go two tone. The top half black and the second half gray and dye the Zorro mustache red.

Re: New album cover

I can think of one movie that should have never been released.

Also I guess the bean counters are figuring out the audience that's already baked in and how to go about trying to reach a wider audience with a small budget.
