BTW, in case you thought Kelly was trying to pull a fast one on saying “Stand” was an Olympic song, check out track … Continue reading

Squat Cobbler 45: Alice Cooper – The Eyes of Alice Cooper (review)

Squat Cobbler 44: Alice Cooper – Dragontown (review)

And since we both love the song “Sex, Death and Money”, I wanted to include something on it… and I found this treasure. SMLTBCBPB (Song … Continue reading

As mentioned on the show, here is the “Gimmie” video with the more insincere “sincerely” ever sung and it ends on a hilarious note. SMLTBCBPB (Song most likely to … Continue reading

Plus Steven is back. SMLTBCBPB (Song most likely to be covered by Pat Boone): Mike – Cleansed … Continue reading

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 … Continue reading
