Alice Cooper Finally makes the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame
About as predictable as John Terry making a move on your missus the minute your back has turned but still worth a mention anyway. The godfather of shock rock has finally been introduced to the hall of fame in a ‘ceremony’ in New York with band mates Michael Bruce, Dennis Dunaway and Neal Smith.
Talking to Billboard.com ‘We’ve actually got special tuxedo’s made, special Alice Cooper tuxedos’
Quite what the geriatric rocker means by that is beyond us by knowing the man they promise to be something pretty special. Though he’s now working with new band members on the forthcoming album ‘Welcome 2 My Nightmare’ a long awaited sequel to the 1970’s classic ‘Welcome to my Nightmare’ he was reunited with the original band for the song ‘When Hell Comes Home’ and Alice said they were quickly back in the old routine.
He said ‘I was going to say, what I want is the live sound, 70’s sound – but I didn’t have to say that. They just play that way’
Famous for his theatrical onstage persona, using lashing of fake blood, guillotines and even an electric chair he was welcomed along with Neil Diamond, Tom Watts, Dr John and Darlene Love into the Hall of Fame by the equally theatrical Rob Zombie.
