Re: Social Commentary Alice anyone?

Good thread, and excellent initial post by recoop. I have often thought about this. I always saw 'The Alice Cooper Concept' as something that was initially created to mirror the decadence of the western world - in particular the USA. A concept that would use dark humour, surrealism etc. Cooper would...

Re: As Bad As I Am

I thought 'As Bad As I Am' came over very well at The Grammys - especially with the stage set and effects too. The playing was great but Cooper's voice these days sounds strained and hoarse..it seems to have lost that warmth and texture. Another thing - is the lead vocal in 'Ace of Spades' really so...

Re: Which Bowie song?

I think something from Bowie's 'hard rock' era (70 - 75) would be appropriate. What about Rebel Rebel?

Re: 15 disc boxset coming out. Alice Cooper 1969-1983

So, Warner Bros consider Alice Cooper 1969 - 1973 to be the same artist as 1975 - 1983?? How bizarre - if you will excuse the pun.

Re: Dennis Dunaway book reviews

I believe that when interviewers ask questions to an artist then they want truthful replies because I think fans want to know what REALLY happened/happens..in fact I know they do..that's why Dennis wrote the book. Would any of care to give me examples of other artists that give the bullshit replies ...

'enhancement of the truth'?? What a strange expression, a change to the truth is a lie.

Re: Dennis Dunaway book reviews

Not read the book yet, but find this topic interesting as I dislike the lies/bullshit (or 'fun stories' as some of you like to call them) that Alice has come out with over the years. Re 'no theatrics' issue: I think maybe the band just didn't want the theatrics to go 'all Alice's way', and that othe...

Re: This Hollywood Vampires 'super group' thing...

Ha ha! Guess I asked for that, I was being a bit lazy I suppose. There was a part of me that was just seeing if some of you were still as rude and aggressive as I remember...you didn't disappoint.

This Hollywood Vampires 'super group' thing...

Before anyone starts with the 'Have you not read the news page?', 'It's in this thread' stuff; NO, I haven't been here for.....a long time. Simple question: What's this Hollywood Vampires super group thing all about? The covers album is not even released and apparently Cooper's working on another "f...

Re: it really is Super Duper

Thanks Andy. Well, the 'vocal contribution' would be because they couldn't track him down or he simply wasn't interested in joining-in (or both), and that could have had repercussions for referring to him to a degree. I have to say though, it wasn't as conspicious to me as it seems to be to many her...

Re: it really is Super Duper

Sorry about this, I DID see the film (and was totally engrossed) but can't recall what the exclusion was other than a vocal contribution à la Neal, Sheryl, Dennis etc - or did I miss something?

Re: it really is Super Duper

I agree Si, but I was thinking just after the NR clip they could have shown a clip from Poison video (or something) and mentioned the very big hit album and single (on the level of the early-to-mid 70s)...I think that would have been a perfect high ending...but I'm being a touch pendantic, although ...

Re: it really is Super Duper

I think it ended fine, after 1986 it was pretty much more of the same, although personally I would have nudged it up to Trash where Alice Cooper became very successful again - a real high - but that's just my opinion.

Re Bruce again: what was about the film that he was omitted from exactly?

Re: it really is Super Duper

If they were going to end it 'prematurely' in the 86 (which I don't have too much of an issue with incidentally), I think they could have at least taken his revival up three years to Trash being a massive success. Just a thought.

Hi all. Just popped back to have a look what was being said about 'Super Duper' and find the discussion very interesting.

Re: Blue Turk - What a Masterpiece!

School's Out is a GREAT album in my opinion - I may well have it down as the best ACG (or indeed Alice Cooper)album actually. It's between that and Killer for me. B$B was somewhat contrived I feel.
