Re: Songs to play

Well, I must say, all of You do the songs justice :clap: ! Forgot to ask this the other day :blush: , while listening to BDS LIVE IN PARIS, we were getting into "The Jokes On You", but having played SECRET TREATIES beforehand, noticed that line is in "Flaming Telepaths".

Re: Pre ACG/Early ACG songs, etc...

"Frontal Lobotomy" is what Glen called a scorching riff he had come up with. He and I worked on it at the Galesi Estate. When the rest of the guys heard what we had done, they started suggesting changes and the song morphed into "Never Been Sold Before" and Glen's killer riff wasn't even used. Than...

Re: Songs to play

I enjoy playing BÖC songs, especially since there are always appreciative fans in the Blue Coupe audiences. My favorite is "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" because it's such an infectious riff and powerfully haunting song. Joe and Al do a great job with the Alice Cooper songs. We've even tackled "Fireball"...

Dennis, those are fantastic memories. Thank you.

Re: Everything's Orange?

I recall a single mention of "Everything's Orange" as the title of a very early (The Spiders?) song. Dennis, if there's any information on that song, I'd appreciate it much. (Maybe one of my fellow Sickthings could win a coloring book!) :) Thanks I only remember the melody and psychedelic feel of t...

Re: Solo Alice

Hi Dennis, 1. I’m curious to how you felt/feel about Alice’s string of ballad singles immediately after the breakup. “Only Women B,” “I Never Cry,” “You & Me,” and “How You Gonna See Me Now?” 2. I always thought the original band would have made a powerful contribution to the From the Inside album....

so do you not really keep up with music ? either in the rock/metal world or pop scene or whatever?
Sure, I like the Foo Fighters, Dimma, Christine Ohlman, Bruno Mars, and others but that's a different question.

Re: Alice Cooper acoustic promo poster, rare b/w

One was auctioned late last year by Backstage Auctions. Listed at $150. Sadly no image there though.

Hello Dennis Dunaway I'm just curious are you aware of the Original Alice Cooper Band acoustic amp promo poster it's in black and white and it looked to be from 71. It had Michael Bruce playing in front of acoustic amps, Neal Smith playing the huge kit and center stage was Alice with microphone in ...

Re: Your Choice of Weekend Listening

Hey Dennis, Please forgive the slightly bland question, lifted from one of the monthly music mags, but a few Friday beers got me pondering what your answer might be. Do you have a particular artist or song that's a favourite to get you going on a Friday/Saturday? And do you have a favourite for a m...

Hey Dennis, Do you and Cindy have a tune that is special for the both of you? Sorry if that's a bit too personal a question, but the world can always use a bit of romance. Me and my special lady friend had our first dance to Another Girl, Another Planet by The Only Ones many, many years ago, so tha...

Concerning my favorite bass parts, I would rather hear what bass parts your friend likes. I like my bass part on "Desert Nightwish" but hardly anyone knows of it because it isn't something that I did in the 70's. Check it out here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sAJe3Pi ...

Re: A few questions from a friend

1. Beatles, Rolling Stones, Yardbirds. 2. Blue Coupe have created three albums, played lots of shows, made music videos, and continue to have fun. We've spent years together so I've learned a lot about the BÖC lyrical mystique. 3. As always, I listen to all kinds of music, but I spend most of my tim...

Greetings. When Man With The Golden Gun wasn't chosen as the James Bond theme, what were the thoughts of yourself and the rest of the group? Thanks. Even though we had our hopes up for it to happen, we knew that James Bond Themes were traditionally by UK artists. They didn't choose Lulu's song over...

Re: Dali Hologram

The hologram was featured in the virtual Dreams of Dali. I saw it at the Dali Museum in Saint Petersburg, Florida. Of course viewing it via the full virtual headgear is far more dramatic than this video of it, but this is still pretty cool.

Re: Dali Hologram

I was reading Michaels book last night and he said the band paid $500 each for the hologram to be made. Does this mean you might actually own it if you paid for its comission? I have read that it resides somewhere in Spain. Dali approached us with the idea. I don't recall paying for the hologram so...

Was looking through Michael's book last night and there is a pic of Neal and Charlie.
That photo was taken backstage at the Pierre Cardin Theater. If you look close, you can see the bandage on Charlie's swollen nose.
