Re: New song and video "Don't give up" coming!

After being unwell and in hospital twice recently with some symptoms initially thought to be potentially Covid related this song resonates with me. I've spoken to dozens of healthcare staff while in hospital and had to listen to really sick and rapidly deteriorating Covid patients through the wall i...

Re: For Veronica's Sake

The last of the MOR albums, a massive step up from L&W and I rank it just after WTMN from the period. Often think it would have done so much better if released immediately after it as well. Didn't like How You Gonna See Me much as was getting fed up with the ballads but loved the rest of the album. ...

Re: new michael bruce group album

Disagree. Bob and Shep took the focal point and a big chunk of the talent.

I loved the group but, whether right or wrong, everyone knew the singer as Alice. The whole thing would have died if Alice Cooper didn't have Alice in it.

Re: Live at Glasgow '82 - 2lp RSD 20202

Would be great to have an album package which included some stories and pictures from the gig as a lot happened that night in that legendary venue. The atmosphere as Alice started was superb and one of the best I'd experienced there. It was quickly followed by the shock for many of seeing the new A...

Excellent news. Think I have three tape copies all of variable quality and one straight from the radio broadcast which is good. Remember the gig well as it was my first time seeing Alice live.

Re: 65 Quid For an Autograph!

I was at all the Edinburgh dates in 86 and 88. I was so excited to have the real Alice back after his problems and seeing the Nightmare Returns Detroit video I didn't even consider trying for an autograph and instead spent all my time in the pubs talking to fans from all over the UK who, without exc...

Re: Australian bushfire concert

Watched the highlights show last night on Sky. Didn't expect much so only having School's Out was not a surprise in the context of 60ish minutes of music overall. Like the way they cut it right at the pause after the Brick in the Wall section..

Re: ‘Ol black eyes is back Tour

Goon Squad video was great,thanks.

My nephew was at Fire Fight. He's a big Queen fan but has never liked Alice. Loved his set though and thought the crowd reaction from the neutrals was superb.

Watched Roxie's video blog. Certainly seemed to be a big day for the band and good to see them backstage just before the set.

UK You Gov Poll

Strange place to find a poll on rock musicians but apparently they pull just about everything in the UK.

5th ain't bad.

Personally, I've decided that I don't care about this stuff anymore. So, he'll make a few quid in a few hours by making some people very happy. He's a celeb and celebs need to work at staying celebs.Rather see him top of the bill than at a bargain bucket £20 with the old Dr. Who. As for links to com...

Disappointing sales for Glasgow Hydro gig so far. Still a long time to go but looks to be well down on the last visit. Same happening elsewhere?

Or how about a virtual duet with Michael Buble?

Going to be interesting to see how this thing plays out now with the most recent acts that have been confirmed.

Re: Alice with Tesla and Lita Ford Summer Tour

I've used eventbrite a couple of times for small gigs locally. On both occasions they emailed tickets but I also downloaded the app which gave me them as well. Have to say they didn't give me problems, but then again the gigs weren't cancelled.

Schedule looks fairly busy already and it's still only January. Seventy plus gigs across eight months and no doubt plenty more activity October-December. He certainly ain't slacking yet..

Just bought standing tickets for 2,500 capacity Paris Olympia as just couldn't get enthusiasm for the seated Glasgow Hydro date only a couple of days later. Summer holiday will now work around this date. It's almost sold out and If the Paris crowd is anything like it was for Alice himself last year ...

Re: Australian bushfire concert

Good news Si, although I'm sure we will still get the 3-4 usual suspects played, and why not when it's a neutral audience. I'm sure it will be televised in some fashion as it seems to be building profile but at 9hrs plus in length I'm guessing anything that makes a compilation programme will only ha...
