Re: hot sauce and colouring books

Not jaded, but we have grown old waiting for him to take the fans, the original band members and the music seriously.

Old Article I Hadn't Seen Before

I was reading an article which was written by Vince Welnick's mother. Vince was The Tubes' pianist. Lots of info on the California and Phoenix music scene in the 1960's. The Alice Cooper Group receives a few mentions, which are salted throughout the piece. Here's the link: https://www.sandiegoreader...

Re: Songs where Alice may have crossed the line

To me, it isn't about a few expletives - I've been known to paint the air dark at times myself. The line-crossing comes in terms of mentioning J-Lo in a song or trying to be Steven Tyler on the live intro to I'm Your Gun. And most definitely being influenced by Bon Jovi in the 80's. Embarrassing thi...

Make That Money would be good live I think. An instrumental jam with a couple of these songs could work too (leading up to, or in place of, the drum solo perhaps).
I'd rather see tap dancing poodles than a drum solo. :D

Mike's Van & The Floating ACG

While spending the past two days burning brush, one question kept nagging me:
When Mike's van flipped over, were you guys really floating out-of-body, looking at one another? If it's covered in your book, please excuse me asking, as I've been so busy, haven't had time to read it yet. Thanks.

Re: Being An Alice Cooper Fan in the Early 70s

My bedroom looked onto the main road with a T- junction right in front of my house. In late ‘72 I had a full wall of group and Alice posters that faced out of my window onto the street At night I positioned table lamps so they lit up the wall from below and in winter, with the curtains open and the...

Re: Flying Tigers

I was in the hospital in maybe 1979 or 1980. My aunt brought me a music magazine and there was an article about the Flying Tigers inside. I was shocked that you and Neal had much shorter hair. Neal said something to the effect that you guys had recorded the world's first platinum tapes. :D Anyway, t...

The Cracking Low Bass Note

I first heard I Love The Dead in 1974. There's the opening slide down on bass guitar which resolves in a solid note (Low 'E'?) which has a cracking sound as if the speaker is broken (or maybe the string plucked a little hard). For whatever reason, I think it helps set the mood of the song. Was there...

Re: The Alice Cooper Show 1977

I bought it the day it was released and have loved it since. Saw the tour in spring and this record has the same sound and feel (even though a few band members had been swapped out).
