I write a lot of music... I spend hours and hours composing
Metal is my genre... Some of the stuff I write is heavy and fast... but a lot of it is dark and gloomy

But ole Alice has been a massive influence for me.

He captures the elements of despair, insanity and eeriness and turns them into a artwork...

He has a new album out and while I havent heard anything yet from it
My dial up internet wont allow me to watch this video...



I wanted to share anyways...

Alice Cooper is performing this weekend in my city - I'll be out of town....but what do you reckon, he still has the energy for a live gig at Hard Rock Cafe?

It takes a lot of energy to perform...
It takes even more for an act like Alice...

But to be Alice... now that is the challenge...

I've believed in crazier things... and I like to think he can pull it off

he isn't dead yet?

wow.

...plus I'm not sure that qualifies as "metal". Sounds more like country than anything, really!
I realise he's contributed HEAPS to the genre, but in my opinion, the world has moved on.

Coop will always be the first true American "heavy metal" artist.
Good to see he's still kicking.
Don't miss his live show if you have the chance to see it.
He is a true entertainer, something far too many bands forget about being.

Brutal planet started to sound like Marilyn Manson in places.
That's a compliment in my book.

to name a few off the top of my head.Ahhh,Welcome

Cooper is the ORIGINAL heavy metal! According to the Rolling Stone Encyclopedia of Rock he INVENTED it.

Marilyn Manson should not be mentioned in the same breath, he is a cheap ripoff of Alice Cooper, minus the awesome music.

Alice Cooper lives in the town I grew up in, he was always our local rock star, I've met him many times. The original band was one of the best bands ever. Dennis Dunaway is still my brother's next door neighbor. The same band played with Elton John on his best stuff (think of real guitar jams like Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting) and also Lou Reed on Rock and Roll Animal. Fantastic.

I'll bite yer face off has grown on me the past few weeks I've heard it.

You gotta be kidding. No one has mentioned "Dead Babies" or "Be my lover"?

The new album is really outstanding, but I might be biased as Alice is in my top three all time. If anyone wonders about whether he can pull off one awesome concert at his age, I recommend checking out the Theater of Death DVD from last year. Always an outstanding live show and one artist I never miss when he comes through town.
