No offence but does he? Who makes that decision? The person who plays the character himself or someone on his behalf?Cold Room wrote: ↑Sun Oct 10, 2021 11:34 pmDENNIS DUNAWAY....for starters.

You are able to spin ANYTHING Alice utters into a positive statement, or at least whitewash it in his favor. In your eyes, he makes no mistakes and does no wrong. (I await the day Alice mumbles that his fans are all idiots....and you guys attempt your PR spin on that. LOL)
If you think someone else knows the character of Alice better then fine - who is it?
Think you are reading this with set opinion i.e. unless every reflection includes the full list of people in the correct order it’s a slight on the original group members.
I’ve been around long enough to know the GB angle. I understand how it shapes opinions but can’t see how it’s relevant here.
I’m not one of those who always find positives out of negatives but I do look for a balance. I know Alice has always exaggerated and has his own recollections and spin on things, some of which can be plain wrong.
I also have nothing against Dennis or any of the group on indeed anyone else who has been part of Alice’s journey. I get that If it wasn’t for the group there would have been no Ezrin on the scene but that’s not the topic. I also get that Dennis’ journey with Alice is the longest and certainly still the closest from the group, but again, that’s not the topic. He hasn’t been in the studio as often with Alice and hasn’t been the one bringing the character out each time.
Everyone who was there at the time played a part in the developing character over the first 7 studio albums. Everyone who has been closely involved in the following 45+ years and 21 studio albums has also had a part in the changing character and whether anyone likes it or not, Bob Ezrin has been a massive influence.
Whether I personally like Ezrin or have different perspectives on the history of the band doesn’t matter because the only person in a place to judge is Alice himself. How can someone who wasn’t there throughout and who wasn’t trying to play the character himself know better?
