A Fistful Of Alice

Heartburn? Indigestion?There's no doubt sir, that repetition ,gastric or artistic ,is a problem common to old age , but whats wrong with that?

Here , dear Old Alice Cooper (you kknow the polite guy in the Rennies advertisement)hits the boards to crank out live versions of a few old hits , and , suprisingly they sound absolutely great!!

Schools Out , Under My Wheels , I Never Cry , Lost In America , Only women Bleed... the track list is hot and so are the performances.

Slash and Sammy hagar make a good fist of the trademark Cooper guitar lines , but dont quite match the old duets of Steve Hunter and Dick wagner who blazed trails on Welcome To My Nightmare. Still nothing is ever as good as it was.... I'm 80 and I like it!!!!
