    I don't begrudge hipsters AC/DC. They subject me to far more odious things. ZZ Top and Aerosmith > AC/DC or Cheap Trick.

    Original Alice Cooper Band > all of em.

    Honestly, I don't know much about Alice Cooper. Never knew anyone who was into him. Maybe not a West Coast thing?

    Good stuff from Heaven Tonight. AOR classics "California Man" and "Stiff Competition" are also memorable. Yet, all we hear on radio today from that album --when push comes to shove, my favorite studio CT album -- is "Surrender".

    He's much more diverse than you think - everything from straight-ahead, cajones-out rock to ballads. In case you missed the link, Redszone's own Dave Collins streams many lost Rock Classics, including Alice Cooper, here.

    He has a few good ones, but Bell is the one whose voice haunts me

    And speaking of Cheap Trick, Roger Manning, Jr. and Jason Falkner of Jellyfish are credited on CT's 2009 album, "The Latest," and Manning has played with them on tour.


    Nicely done, Rich!
