They are pretty sure this is still the best selling of all of Alice’s albums and it featured a major return to the singles chart with “Poison”. While it certainly can be debated, both Mike and Kelly felt this was a good album, just not a good Alice Cooper album.  Tons of guest stars including Jon Bon Jovi, Steven Tyler and Kip … Continue reading
