Thanks Si,
What a Hard Drivin' Rock tune!! :clap: :clap:
I do catch a little of "Runaway Train" in it.
Here it it is & licensed through CdBaby (In The U.S.) So, I think it's O.K.

As much as I love Dennis, I never cared for the album.

I found Bones From The Yard rather unspectacular. Has a couple of ok tunes but never really got me going. I don't think I have gone back to it after the initial flurry of listens.

Loved that album, had it playing in my car regularly for a year or so. Thought it was superior to a lot of solo Alice albums.

I hope Dennis and Alice continue to work together in some capacity - based on the strength of Fireball, and The Sound of A. While I'm not crazy about the new album as a whole, there are select tracks that are exceptionally well done. Dennis is associated with all the ones I like for some reason.

That truly is a good LP! FIFTH AVENUE VAMPIRES was a little out there though...

Thanks to Si's advice years ago, I gave it a listen and loved it. Worth checking out if you haven't done so already.

While more of a fan of solo Alice than the original band material (though I love that as well), I thought Bones From the Yard was a terrific album.

Been over ten years since I lasted posted and I have to say that never has a week or day gone by when I have not visited to get my update on Alice news. The site continues to just get better and congratulations Si on a great website.

I am now 57 and so have a preference for the ACG era more than solo Alice. Never have 7 albums had such a profound effect on me than those first 7 ACG albums. Having said that there have been a few solo gems from Alice as well. Mind you over 40 years as a solo artist there certainly should have been but nothing as consistent as the ACG era. Just my own personal preference!

Which brings me to the subject matter and recent publicity concerning the original line up, since the Hall of Fame entrance I have been on the edge of my seat wondering if I would see a lifetime ambition of seeing the original group reform. Alas, not to be with the sad passing of Glen Buxton. However with recent recordings and the incredible news of the remaining original members to perform in the UK this year I am in my element and so excited.

Having read various books and certainly the recent book by Dennis I was pleasantly surprised to know the influence that he had on the character of Alice. Often the quiet member of the band he had what seems tremendous influence on the stage presence of the band and certainly the appearance of Alice and how he should be portrayed. Not only that Dennis is an incredible bass player and his partnership with Neal is second to none. I had the pleasure of meeting Dennis also and I can say what an incredibly friendly and warm guy he was and so down to earth. So yes I salute Dennis!

On a last note and if am allowed to 'dream' a little, to top of seeing ACG perform this year I would truly love to see an album done by them. I note from conversation on here that on recent albums, Alice encourages people to supply him with songs including the original band. From this I guess Alice and Bob choose the songs they deem acceptable and then possibly dilute and change arrangements. Thus becoming very much an 'Alice' record. My wish would be that the original guys get back into a studio with Bob and an album could be produced that truly reflects an ACG album just like the original production process. That would be the perfect conclusion should as I fully expect that there will never be a full reunion.

Apologies for going off subject slightly, and yes Dennis is great!!

Myself & (I believe) for the rest of the Sick Things, nothing would please us more - (other than Paranormal reaching #1)!
Bring 'em back & do a full album! :rock:
Shoot for the stars! The 5 of them (including BE) are more than capable of putting something fantastic together. :teach:
