Re: Zipper catches skin commercial

I thought someone might just have taped it from Swedish TV when it aired but there's no subtitles (which is standard on Swedish TV) and no channel logo. Weird.

It's a great clip anyway.

Re: Zipper catches skin commercial

Well at the start of the clip it says "We saw and heard Talking Heads and David Byrne with Once in a Lifetime" in Swedish, which suggests that it was aired on Swedish TV at least.

Re: HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES TRACK LISTING REVEALED

My thoughts on the tracks so far: I Got A Line On You - Pretty good, a nice fast-paced rocker but it could have been a bit rougher I think. It's start out good but I think Perry Ferrells vocals on the chorus makes it sound a bit to slick. Something about it reminds me of Cheap Trick, in a good way. ...

What Metallica songs?
But yeah, the inclusion I Got A Line On You and School's Out was surprising.

Re: Live Version Question

The Fistful of Alice version starts with a bit of Steven, so my guess is that's it.

Re: Alice solo for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Ringo wasn't actually inducted as a solo preformer, he got in by the Award for Musical Excellence which "honors those musicians, producers and others who have spent their careers out of the spotlight working with major artists on various parts of their recording and live careers.". And even then it ...

Re: It even happened to Rudy Vallee!

While I won't deny that a lot of young people probably doesn't know who Alice is, I've had the opposite happen to me with a music teacher who was convinced I wouldn't know who the Rolling Stones was because of my age. I had to tell him several times that I did indeed know them and even liked their m...

Re: Gloves.

Re: Wish Alice Would Do This!

You know, Johnny Cash "American Recordings" was almost all covers and/or re-recording of his old songs. Patti Smith second latest album, "Twelve", was a cover album. And while I don't know much about Glen Campbell, just looking at his discography he also recorded a cover album in 2008. Yes. I've ne...

Re: Wish Alice Would Do This!

It's time for young artists to have their chance and to give their generations their voice. Trust me--Alice Cooper could release the best album of his career next year and he would not become relevant to today's music buying public. He is an old man in a young man's game. Does anyone on here really...

Re: Wish Alice Would Do This!

I seem to remember hearing something about the only reason they chose Greatest Hits was because they already played most of it anyway. Don't know it that was the case but it sounds fairly logical.

Re: Gloves.

I might be wrong but the gloves wasn't really a thing until The Nightmare Returns right? Just briefly looking at photos/videos of previous tours it seems like he mainly wore gloves during the Killer/School's out and From the inside tours before then.

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

I higly doubt that the Hollywood Vampires will be more than just a side-project for Alice. I don't think Johnny Depp would suddenly stop making movies and I don't think Joe Perry will leave Aerosmith. It's just a fun chance to do something different. Most supergroups don't last long anyway, do they?...

Re: Cruise Ship Setlist

Adding a few covers when they play a non-regular one-off shows during a tour is nothing new. When they played 100 Club and Whiskey a Go-Go in 2011 they also played 5-6 covers in the set and I don't remember anyone complaining about it then.

Re: Combining and editing Alice albums

While I'm one of those who actually like Along Came a Spider I think it would've been a stronger album if the bonus tracks had been included on it. Maybe take out "I'm Hungry" as well since it's the weakest song IMO. Something like this: Prologue/I Know Where You Live Vengeance is Mine Wake the Dead...

Re: New cool Alice Cooper Halloween Mask for 2015!

While I agree that it looks like Bill Crowe, it's still recognizable as an Alice Cooper caricature to me. I think it's the exaggeration of the eyes and the snarl of the mouth that makes it looks less like Alice than it should. That said, the big problem is the nose - which just doesn't look like Ali...

Re: New cool Alice Cooper Halloween Mask for 2015!

It's meant to be a cariacture more than an accurate portrait, I get that, but it still reminds me more of FrankenAlice than regular Alice.
