Re: A Nonsense Question for the Weekend

Welsh band Manic Street Preachers did a version of Under My Wheels for a BBC session, which was subsequently used on a B-side. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EnspBeHza0 The interesting footnote on this is that their top ten hit of the Theme from M.A.S.H.(Suicide is Painless) for a charity release ...

Re: A Nonsense Question for the Weekend

Thanks Dennis.

You've made good calls there.

I think I can especially picture him doing Working Up A Sweat. He certainly had enough musicians and singers backing him to really rip into it.

A Nonsense Question for the Weekend

Hey Dennis,

Myself and some friends were discussing songs that Elvis could have covered from various bands. When we got to the Alice Cooper group, it was my firm belief that Under My Wheels is the one he'd have done best.

Any thoughts on this trivia?

Thanks

Re: Who I really am

I've listened to the free clips so far and was surprised at how much he seems to be shouting the stories out. I reckon I'll have to give the whole thing a listen.

Sherilyn Fenn

Hey Dennis, Did Sherilyn Fenn's dad, Leo, really bring her on tour with you guys? It's one of those things that sounds both plausible (she was from a showbiz family after all) and a nice exaggeration. The Alice Cooper tours of the early seventies would have been quite an eye-opener for someone under...

The Decline of Western Civilization Part II

Hey Dennis, The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years , released in 1988, has a rerecorded version of Under My Wheels over the end credits with additional (maybe ad-libbed?) lyrics. Were you consulted on this new version at all? And do you have any opinion on how it sounds? In fac...

Re: 2022 Tour with the Cult

My mate just asked...What do you need for that, "proof of vaccine or lateral flow test or both"....something to think about that MIGHT be needed as it never even crossed my mind when booking The rules that start on October 1st will require a vaccine passport, to prove you've had two jags.

Re: 2022 Tour with the Cult

Just went with the SSE presale after all, towards the very back of section 4. I've been up close enough times to have had enough of this chase for a better ticket.

Looking at some Youtube footage again, the stalls are all pretty good anyway, considering it's a soulless big space.

Re: 2022 Tour with the Cult

I really can't follow what seats ac.com are offering. They seem wildly random and, unless I'm completely misunderstanding it, none of them are for the central stalls?

Re: 2022 Tour with the Cult

Best SSE Hydro presale tickets start at Row W.

One of the most infuriating things of the modern age is having to trawl around the various ticket outlets to see who's offering what, all the while worrying that you might pass over the best deal while looking for something else.

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 that...

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 mo...

A Shakespeare Cabaret, August 1973

Hey Dennis, I've seen a few mentions of this Hollywood Bowl event lately, since the anniversary of it was a few days ago. Was there any debate over Alice doing this solo, especially as he was performing one of the band's songs? Did he perform it with other musicians or was it a backing tape? Thanks

Jane Fonda

Hey Dennis,

One of the more curious things on Si's excellent and exhaustive timeline (for me anyway) is the gig on November 21, 1970 at the University of Detroit, when you play with The Stooges, Damnation and.........Jane Fonda tops the bill.

To put it bluntly, what was that all about?!

Thanks

Alice on Harmonica

Hey Dennis, I was wondering how much or how little a role Alice's harmonica playing had in the development of the band? I'm guessing it took more of a back seat as you went from the garage sound to psychadelia and beyond, but was there ever a possibility of it popping up on more tracks? Were there a...
