Both Si and the scholarly Amuk have said the covers go down well with the crowds.
Again, I don't thnk that's what I actually said. I believe what I said was something like "the covers seem to go down better in the US then in the UK".

Completely different thing and you know it.
No one minds Alice doing a cover here and there, the problem is having so many of them, and having them as the centerpiece of the show, when he could be doing his own songs.
The Vampires is a covers project. You go to see the vampires you expect to hear covers. That isn`t the case at an Alice Cooper show.
You know all this so why is it strange?
Side bar to maybe Amuk. Are tickets down in sales for these new shows? I remember Keith 1850 saying a HV show was only half sold out.
There have only been three HV shows so far, 2 club shows that sold out in seconds, and one huge festival in Brazil.

That is the only valid reason for having them in the show, and has already been stated. It doesn`t mean we have to like it.
