Snakes! Guillotines! Electric Chairs!

Hi Dennis, I really love your book. It’s especially wonderful to hear you tell your stories in the audiobook. I’m listening to it for the third time now. Thank you for that!! Has there been any talk that you know about making an Alice Cooper biopic? I think your book screams for adaptation. There’s ...

Re: Detroit Stories Review

Second impressions are kind to this album. I totally get what Alice was doing. It’s an album that harkens back to a day when rock was king. The covers kind of add the the setting - they take you back in a way. Opening with Rock & Roll conceptually makes perfect sense. It is wrong the dismiss the cov...

Re: New OG Album

I labored pretty hard over the track sequencing. I analyzed the key band albums to see where the fast songs fell, where the slow songs fell. The heavy songs. The pop songs. The dark songs. I didn’t want to just sequence them how Alice had sequenced them on the various albums they appeared on. I thin...

Re: Detroit Stories Review

First impressions.... The production is robust. The musicianship is good. Overall very solid record. A lot of it feels more like a tribute to classic rock than an Alice Cooper album. Standouts for me are Go man Go, Social Debris, $1000 High Heel Shoes, I Hate You, and Wonderful World, the last of wh...

Re: Detroit Stories Review

Thanks everyone for sharing your feedback. My vinyl should be arriving any moment, but I'll need to wait until my two year old goes to bed or else I won't have a record or a record player anymore. For the record, I loved Paranormal - easily my favorite Alice album of the last 2 decades, including Ho...

Re: Social Debris

Good song, right on target, loving that guitar solo. Came here to see what everyone was saying and blown away to hear Steven played on the song. Outstanding work man, you are living the dream for all of us!

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

I like the new single. Never heard the original, but I can see why Alice wanted to do it. I am not crazy about the previous single at all. Covers in general do not excite me. I enjoyed Breadcrumbs but am annoyed by the number of songs that carried over to Detroit Stories. My two favorite tracks on B...

Re: Hollywood Vampires meet and greet.

It was about $1500 or 3 times a normal Alice meet and greet. A fan would get so much more out of 3 AC meet and greets than 1 AC meet and greet. Then again, maybe they've received similar feedback and improved the process a little bit. Then again again, maybe not.

Re: OGs on the next Alice album

For those who aren't satisfied with the OGs only doing three tracks per album, if you make them all into one playlist, by the time the new album drops, there should be enough OG tracks to make up a faux album if that helps!

Re: Hollywood Vampires meet and greet.

I hesitate to say anything that could cost Alice business, but for me the Vampires meet and greet was not worth the money. It was basically in and out in 2 minutes. I was trying to chat Alice up and we both are making goofy faces in the pictures as a result. I waited in line for quite a long time as...

Re: Breadcrumbs

I loved Paranormal - listened maybe 50 times. Maybe more. Rise isn’t bad, but I haven’t listened to it since the week it came out. I like this EP more than anything on Rise. Production in general is great. Love the guitars. Love the backing vocals - they compliment Alice’s voice nicely. In terms of ...

Re: Rise - First reviews

Like others, I am struck by Congratulations. Definitely unique. Overall, it’s a good album with more surprises than the average Alice Cooper album. It’s really nice having some vocal variety between Depp on Heroes and People Who Died, Perry on Can’t put your arms around a memory, and Tommy on Git fr...

Re: Vampires Who's Laughing Now?

On first listen I was not in love, but I've listened to it a bunch of times now and it's definitely growing on me. Some of the lyrics are questionable and some production choices cheapen the sound a bit, but it is a welcome departure from the trusty Alice / Ezrin sound. It's also pretty exciting tha...

Re: Paranormal (Tour Edition)

I saw the track list as well and it’s odd that they added the two band songs at the end of the album, but on the vinyl, they’re both sequenced before the Sound of A. Who is making these decisions? Personally, I’ve gotten so used to their placement on the vinyl that it’s the only version in my mind. ...

Re: Thoughts On And Ranking The New Album

Listening to Paranormal for the first time through in a while and all I can say is THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! Anyone can say what they want, but for a 69 year old rockstar to release one of the - arguably - best solo albums of his career, that’s pretty big miracle. How can we ask for more?

Re: Am I The Only One Who Liked W2MN?

W2MN is a great album and I think why a lot of people give a snub is because it's compared to the first.......Don't!!!! look at it as it's own separate entity. That would be easier if it weren't for all of the musical tie-ins, like I am Made of You (which is literally made of the Steven melody), Ni...

Everything sounded great, including WOMD and Paranoiac Personality. The truncated set and limited space o...
