Re: Opening Night SPOILERS!!!!

man, a steven/i am made of you medley...that sounded too good to be true. i think the setlist is fine, not a fan of covers, but the alice set is ok...but if a couple of the songs mentioned here, whether it's i am made of you, hell is living without you or he's back could make their way in, it would ...

I voted for I'm Eighteen and 18. Just in case he decides to drop one, at least he'll play the other.

Re: Musicans who found religion

This is all a very interesting and though provoking discussion, but ultimately, if Alice felt he needed to still "act" all rock star ALL the time, I'm not sure if the general perception of Alice Cooper would be any better. The perception of Alice Cooper in 2012 is that of a genuinely good, family ma...

Re: Musicans who found religion

two things i never go out of my way to find out or listen to when it comes to my favorite entertainers: their politics and their god. i admire alice and have loved every facet of his career as a singer, a songwriter, a performer and an entertainer. i personally switch off when it comes to discussing...

Re: The Alice Cooper album of the Day: DADA

>he releases a "safe", by-the-numbers hair metal album in constrictor (not trashing the album totally, it has it's place) and he's a pop culture icon again. go figure. I don't think that was the main reason. I think it's more because having become sober, he went back out on tour and that made him m...

Re: The Alice Cooper album of the Day: DADA

my absolute favourite alice cooper album. this encompasses alice cooper at his best in a nutshell...dark, twisted, humorous, experimental, abstract...substance abuse may have been destroying alice physically, but ironically he didn't suffer artistically. although nobody seemed to notice or care sinc...

Re: New book: Welcome to My Nightmare

Got my copy of the book yesterday and am about 60 pages in. I have to say the book is extremely well written and entertaining, it is worth a read, although the factual errors are simply inexcusable on every level. The parts of the story that we "know" to be factual however are still presented in suc...

Re: STRANGE CASE OF DVD

I might be wrong, but I think the raggedness of the performance was mainly because he was...well, ragged. I'll take today's powerful, sharper vocal and more dominating stage presence over the skeletal appearance and inconsistent vocal of MR. I liked Alice's spontaneity in his 70's performances, but ...

I haven't enjoyed any of Romero's latest works, but Martin is one of the most underrated horror films ever.

Re: STRANGE CASE OF DVD

I'm glad to have this on DVD, but this has never been one of my favourite vocal performances from Alice, and his appearance is downright scary (and not in a good way.) What amazes me is that today at 64 he blows this much younger version of himself out of the water.

Re: Maybe no W2MN??

I understand some people want a whole new stage show that caters for all the new songs...but I don't get the comment somebody made earlier (apologies as it may have not even been in this thread) that sometimes its hard to be a Cooper fan as we don't quite get what we want. I think this is the best t...

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

Meh. Who cares. Alice continues to tour, so it's all good in my eyes. Looking forward to him making another trip down under hopefully in the next year or two, as has been his routine since 2005.

Yes, true, I guess I meant TTW is an official release and a label already distributes it. Someone selling copies of it would be no different to me starting a site and selling copies of a movie, and I think I think I'd rightfully get my ass kicked for that.

Why though? I'm genuinely curious. How hard can it be to shut them down? Especially when they appear to be selling copies of Trashes The World which is copyrighted?

Re: Unofficial DVDs

I'm not going to pretend I don't watch bootlegs or seek them out sometimes, but I was wondering how sites like the one listed above can get away with openly selling bootlegs without getting into trouble?
