Re: ‘Ol black eyes is back Tour

But I digress. The new tour is awesome and full of the energy that to me is the soul of rock and roll, the castle is great, the theatrics on Roses on white lace are adorable etc. It is a positive - not a negative that Alice has such a vast catalog to pull from that not everyone can be pleased. Quot...

Re: ‘Ol black eyes is back Tour

Great post. It made me think of my best friend's 22 year old nephew. I talk to him about music when he around and he loves Pink Floyd, Led Zep and other classic bands. When it comes to Alice he loves the original band...and has almost no liking of anything after 1974. The "kids" his age mock the ha...

Re: ‘Ol black eyes is back Tour

Poison is a well-written song compared to the majority of songs from that era, but even it is still lacking in musical integrity to me. I’d love to never have to hear it or the rest of the Trash again. Always bathroom break time when that comes around. Interesting how people like to make all these ...

Re: ‘Ol black eyes is back Tour

Part of the problem here is perception. Whatever Era we are talking about (& 50 yrs. is a long time!) Once a fan got a hold of the latest release they played it over & over. Learning every nuance & note. :HEART: It boils down to economics because, our disposable funds were (presumably) limited. :/ T...

Re: ‘Ol black eyes is back Tour

My point being is there is great music from all eras and I am glad that on this tour some great 80's songs are remembered and for some people Roses on White Lace is every bit as good of a song and significant as Eighteen is for others. No. I agree with much of what you said but 'I'm Eighteen' is si...

Re: SPECIAL FORCES

How great would it be if he performed the 4 black out albums in full? Bit like Sparks doing all their albums to date one at a time. Those albums are very short but he could do two one night and two the next. Encores, For Britain Only and Look at you over there. You. me and about 500 Alice fans worl...

Re: Rise - First reviews

You Can’t Put Your Arms Around a Memory – I am a big fan of rock music, but I cannot admit to ever hearing this song before. So, in that regard, this is the definitive version. I admire the piano playing on The Wrong Bandage intro. Heroes - I just can't understand the vitriol about this song. The g...

We seem to be at an impasse...
:axe:
Side projects are just that, a chance to cut loose from the same ol' same ol' -
& recharge to come back refreshed to tackle the career with newfound energy!
Hopefully, with some new ideas. A more diverse fanbase may be a bonus. :clap:

I finally got a copy delivered!

The core band has been credited with production & engin...

Re: fire at Universal studios in 2008

I read an article last night that included a VERY long list of artists who had material in the vault (from a Universal catalogue database apparently) and Alice Cooper was NOT included. Of course it may not have listed everything in there. Thanks Si, That just may be a list of what Universal claimed...

At least with cds you can burn a copy without the covers. Maybe the track running will play better.
.org
Or try just burning a cd with all of the covers & you might get that " Expensive Bar Band" sound that AC referred to. :rotfl:

Re: If Alice was to a return to a sound...

I would like to hear another album like DaDa with real drums. Sorry steven15322, Not to pick on you in particular but, I've seen so many posts to resurrect DaDa that I must comment. AC is a recovering substance abuser & that's why that trilogy has been referred to as "The Blackout Years". Sure, som...

Re: fire at Universal studios in 2008

Hi, I think most of the musicfans have heard the story about the big fire in one of Universals vaults. I saw the big list with artists in the NYT and there was no Alice mention. But has his mastertapes be safe?? I'm just curious. I started this in Off-Topic & had forgotten totally about the MCA yea...

Re: Glen gets head butted by Norman Mailer

My question is who was "Shrapnel" and how did they get an invite to Mailer's house? An American punk band from the late 70’s who I think used to wear military uniforms onstage. Glen guested with them at some point. New Jersey Punk band & I think Glen may have liked their attitude & the Uniforms! If...

Re: SLICK BLACK LIMOUSINE

After giving this track another spin. I think it is much better than a "giveaway". But, it still didn't fit the style/mood of BDB. I recall a similar situation that involved an NME Flexi that fell through & got "Hidden Track" status on The Clash's London Calling album with the song "Train In Vain". ...

Re: Kimmel live

Definite missed cue but after that I thought the track was excellent. Heroes was surprisingly good with JDs voice coming through loud and clear and JP doing a fine job too. As for Alice on guitar...he was strumming away at a ridiculous speed sometimes. If he is playing then give it volume and make ...

Re: HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES - Rise japan edition cd

MY biggest issue with the Hollywood vampires is the whole outlook on it, I think it was alice who basically described them as being "a club band, but with premium prices" (paraphrasing, slightly). This just got my back up , then I heard the album and agreed with his sentiment. Also anyone who has t...
