I wouldn`t mention the chicken. :laugh:

Puts on be Vincent Price Voice

And here my prize the chicken , is she lovely . And so tasty

Her taste is fifteen times that of the rattlesnake.

Maybe ask him about his friend John Mc Cain , could be a good question to ask as it out of the norm for the coop and may be a good ice breaker that leads to a longer conversation about all this coop . Then you can hit him with the chicken question , you all know you wanna here the chicken story again .

When I spoke with him on the tour bus last fall in Birmingham we discussed what Tiger Woods needed to do to improve his swing and hit a higher percentage of fairways. The new CD never came up in the 20 minutes.

How sick is that, LOL? Dude is a serious golf monster, scarier than Spider!!!

If I met him tomorrow, I would tell him I like the songs that have been posted on the myspace page and am looking forward to hearing the whole album and seeing the artwork (especially the vinyl artwork)
I would certainly not tell him my opinion of something that had been leaked on the internet. I think that would be bad form for anyone calling themselves a fan.

If he asked me out-right what i thought of ACAS, i would say that i was disappointed with it and feel he could have done better. I respect honesty and no-one likes a kiss ass.

I would then follow it up by saying i really enjoyed EOAC and DD.

Sure you would :rotfl:
Um, yeah I would....problem with that?

Why would I say I loved something that I didn't? Wouldn't that be a bit hypocritical? Am I not allowed to be critical of my idols?
I doubt Alice would ask you what you thought of the album for one... so telling him that you didn't like it would involve you broaching the subject of your dislike for the album which in my mind would be disrespectful.

I agree totally. He probably wouldn't ask, because after almost forty years in the business he knows that his music is what it is - good or bad. He accepts that some will like it and some will not.

But since we're on the subject, I would tell him I love the concept and love the story, but I would have liked a bit more variety in the arrangements. The instruments are not terribly distinctive on many songs, except for Vengeance and Spider.

So I guess when he asked me how I liked the new album back in '05, it must have been a fluke. For the record, I told him that enjoyed some of the songs but I liked TEOAC better. We then started talking about TEOAC.

I stand corrected. I'm surprised Alice would ask a fan about the new album.

It didn't really seem like an odd question to me.

Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't rip into the album like I do on here. I would respectfully tell him that I loved the promos and it was a really cool concept but I didn't think the actual music delivered. I'm sure it would be left at that, but if he did press on for some crazy reason, I would elaborate. With a career as long as Alice's I'm sure he can take criticism.

I would not say anything until i heard the new album, but i would ask when he toured the album next year if there was any place for My Stars.
Anything I say or write is my own personal opinion, no matter who agrees or disagrees with me.

If he asked I'd be honest and say that I loved it because I really do!

Then I'd want to know who that woman is inside of Spider lol......

Oh and I'd ask him if he liked the watch.......

Ask him if he had pork for dinner that night.

Then I would ask him if there will be a sequel to ACAS.

Now, that I have listened to it 3 times in a row on Myspace.....

I would tell him that I LOVE IT. I love the 60's vibe to it, I like that the ballads sound like they were written by The Beatles. I like the music, the lyrics, and the arrangements....
I like the storyline, the photos, and videos and packaging.


EVERYTHING.

Personally, I'd praise the heck out of his new album....and then ask him if he needs a caretaker for his home in Hawaii.
