Re: What do you want to see Alice cover?

Hard to care really, I expect it will be a bunch of bland workaday garage rock covers with a Lady Gaga song or some other flavour of the month 'unexpected' cover to get some publicity from The Sun.

Re: Strange case DVD

Very glad that this is finally hitting DVD. I've seen the VHS, but Alice's commentary should be entertaining (the one on 'Good To See You Again) was great. It's a shame that one wasn't included on the 'Nightmare Returns' DVD, since that's generally an overlooked period of his career and one I'm alwa...

I'd go with DadaScot. It's entertaining but not really definitive.

Re: "A Big Announcement to Come in a Few Weeks"

Which 'hype' are you referring to? The fact that the word "big" was used once in relation to one announcement?! Let me tell you what is "hilarious" and that is people letting their imaginations run riot as to what it was going to be. Yes, hilarious that Alice said there'd be a Nightmare 2 tour this...

Re: "A Big Announcement to Come in a Few Weeks"

Anyone who really thinks the Nightmare 2 tour is/was going to happen must have a short memory. This is exactly the same scenario as the mooted 'Along Came A Spider' tour that never happened, to the letter. Album drops, one song is added to the usual stale setlist, we're told there'll be a full new a...

Re: Ipad nightmare

I contacted iTunes and they know nothing about it. My guess is it's either not happening or it'll come out in a month when all the diehard fans have already bought five other versions.

Re: My Review of W2MN

There's only one thing I'd change on this album. I think 'Disco Bloodbath Boogie Fever' and 'Ghouls Gone Wild' in a row is too much goof in one dosage. I'd say drop Disco, use that as a bonus track and slot Under The Bed in. That's it. 'I Am Made Of You', 'A Runaway Train', 'Last Man On Earth' ('but...

Re: W2MN iTunes bonus track/video removed

Good for you, this thread isn't about iTunes in general (a 'disaster' thats made billions of dollars), its about the fact that the item that I know personally several dozen people pre-ordered has had tracks removed from it and the pre-orders are now not being fulfilled. The physical sales over here ...

Re: W2MN iTunes bonus track/video removed

Bad Situation is still there. It's the video and the commentary that have disappeared, along with the ability to buy the full album rather than just individual songs. A mess, basically.

W2MN iTunes bonus track/video removed

A week ago (and up until last night) the Deluxe edition W2MN was up for pre-order on iTunes Netherlands. Like other territories, this had A Bad Situation, We Gotta Get Out Of This Place, the commentary track and the I'll Bite Your Face Off video listed, and a total price of 14 euros 99. Now it's rel...

I have however, never spoken to anyone involved with AC or any other artist who harboured such a snot-nosed, confrontational, unprofessional, attitude towards fans.

Re: Alice Cooper Old School Boxset

Just to clarify, I've expressed no dissatisfaction with the boxset or its content. I have made comments, echoed by many others both here and on facebook, that the manner in which the mp3 offer has been executed is confusing. I have been told I'm 'wrong', it's 'not confusing', it's not unclear, it ju...

I did see the North American pre-orders bit, but was unclear whether that meant 'only orders for delivery to NA addresses' or just ordered through AC.com, being a north American site, in the same way that UK customers can order either from North American Amazon.com or the regionalised Amazon.co.uk. ...
