I think it's a fascinating period of Alice's career which i'd like to hear more about.
You won't hear much about it from AC himself. That's why it's called the "Blackout Years"
All you will get is 2nd & 3rd hand info. Hopefully, from someone who was sober. :smack:

I get the feeling he calls it the “blackout years” and says “he doesn’t remember recording those albums” etc, as a excuse to not have to talk about it in detail. Which I totally understand and respect. It’s probably too painful for him to revisit

There is a great podcast w/ Dick Wagner on the DADA sessions at Decibel Geek here
http://dbgeekshow.blogspot.com/2014/04/ ... er-ep.html
And in his book "Not Only Women Bleed" also talks a bit about it but the podcast is dedicated to the DADA sessions.
Thanks, I’m sure I’ve heard this before but had forgotten a good bit. Prompted me to go back and listen to some of Wagner’s own work. Love the guitar on his own version of Might As Well Be On Mars.

Not a photo, but Alice appears on the February 1984 Grammy Awards here from around 17:00:

No way to really tell if he’s fully sober or not. My hunch is that he probably had been to rehab between Dada being completed and these Grammys. Seems to be about the same weight and have same haircut as the few pics from recording Dada. I believe he was estranged from Sheryl when this was filmed, and I don’t see a wedding band, but the film isn’t crystal clear. He seems a little melancholy, but could be my imagination.
