Sick Things used to make me cringe, but it's grown on me over the last 40 odd years. But Mary Ann hasn't.

Sick Things defined the Alice Cooper Group and their fans circa '73/'74

not me it didn't. And I was/am a big big fan from 72 onward. I always used to skip it when I played the record. It's funny, I rather like it now...

Special Forces has a special place in my heart as I saw that tour and Alice wore a shirt I drew for him on stage.

Thanks kinda tough to see clearly though.

I threw it up at Alice just as the show ended and the lights when out and I heard him say, "Ooh what a catch!"

When he reappeared for the encore he had it on and I nearly died...

The Song That Didn't Rhyme - writing a song about writing a bad song - and then playing and recording said song. What next? A concept album about making a compilation album of all your worst tracks.

Steal That Car - ugh, weak attempt at an anthem and lyrically it's just terrible

Hard Rock Summer - was used perfectly on a soundtrack for a bad eighties movie

Ghouls Gone Wild - sounds like a track that would be used for a Halloween episode on a show on the Disney Channel

Sunset Babies (All Got Rabies) - pseudo-Stones snoozefest

Now I gotta rinse out my ears and scrub my brain

Indeed, add to this I didnt have a camera on me!

I asked some guy snapping pictures to send me them if they came out and he finally did like 4 months later...

Who says there aren't good people in this world!

I don't see your point. ''Vengeance is mine'' is on ACAS.

If i could travel back in time to see a particular Alice tour I think that would have to be a contender. The live footage i've seen is fantastic, such a tight and punchy live band.

It was so bizzare to see the Coop look like such s*** and still pack an enawmuss wallop live. Its a brilliant testimony to his never say die/show must go on personality.

I saw another show that same year at a really small club on Long Island. He played two nights and natch we went both. Talk about up close and personal.

Another shirt I drew on his shoulder :clap:
You can also see a younger Brian 'Renfield' Nelson crouched in the background.
