Re: Support Acts and Shared Bills

I haven't kept track of what gigs are known and which might deserve more attention so I'll just grab a few that pop into my head. During The Spiders reign in Arizona, we opened for the Lovin' Spoonful, The Byrds, The Bobby Fuller Four, and the Hollies. Those were all exciting shows. Alice Cooper pla...

Re: Cindy as the Tooth

Cindy would only play the nurse if nobody else would, and even then we practically had to get her in a headlock. The Dancing Tooth was a different animal all together. The audience couldn't see her but she could see them through the cavity, and it had twinkling lights, so she really enjoyed doing th...

Re: The Baz story

Thanks for your well written tribute to your dear friend. I'm not sure if I've ever met Baz but his name sounds familiar. It's humbling to hear how our music brings people together. It's the magic of music. The songs created by musicians connects them, and it also connects all of the people that rel...

Re: Memorabilia

Hey Dennis, While you're a guy who's always looking forwards, you also have an impressive collection of memorabilia. Is there anything you lost along the way that you wish you still had, or something you never kept at the time that you now wish you'd hung onto? I remember you saying, on here I thin...

Re: GREATEST HITS sleeve

Hello Mr Dunaway, Thanks again for investing Your time on this forum. My ACG journey really started when I found GH on cassette in an Army Post Exchange (AKA a PX) a few days after Christmas of 1974. Having an early December birthday (12/7), I certainly had extra cash to get this, even at a whoppin...

Re: Charlie Carnal

Hey Dennis, I find it interesting that Charlie apparently decided he preferred the company of animals to people and went 'off grid' as it were. Is he still living such a life and have you had much or any contact with him in recent years? Thanks I last saw Charlie in the late 70's. As far as I know,...

Re: Jim Morrison

Hey Dennis, With today being the 50th anniversary of the death of Jim Morrison, I was wondering how you and the band reacted on hearing news of his passing. Was it simply 'one of those things', tragic though it was, or did it cause some kind of introspection or re-evalutaion? Thanks Dr. D. I would ...

Re: DDP

"Kandahar" is a great opener, but I've always thought that the second song on any album is what I listen to the most. It often seems like a better indication of the record's strength. "Me and My Boys" is a great example of that theory. Traditionally, record companies wanted the single to be the ope...

Re: Main Man Records Tribute Albums

Hey Dennis, Can you share any info on on these two(?) recordings? Moonage Daydream was an interesting choice for the Bowie one. As was Big Bottom for the Spinal Tap! Am I correct in guessing the heavy bass was what appealed to you about that song? Thanks These tribute albums were released on Main M...

Re: DDP

Loved Ian Hunters “Shrunken Heads” album too, around the same time as the “Bones From The Yard” if I remember right. Such a shame that DDP album didn’t take off big time, no fillers on that album at all…. and that’s some story about that club, you must’ve been fuming. Thank you for taking the time ...

Re: DDP

I think your album “Bones From The Yard” is the best album of anything ACG or Alice Cooper related in the past 15 years. Are there any plans of another DDP in the works ? I seriously never get tired of playing this album, a true mark of a great consistent album in my mind. DDP worked very hard to m...

Re: Blue Coupe

Anything going on in the world of Blue Coupe these days? What are your favourite songs with the band? What is the creative process like? Is it very collaborative? Do you work on each others song ideas to make them fit the band sound more? What about the bass style you use, how is it different to Al...

Re: Pretties for you and beyond

Dennis, thanks for all your time on this site engaging with fans. It is hugely appreciated. When I first got into the ACG music in the early 80's, it seemed like a totally terrifying proposition.
