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.
I was listening to Alice Cooper back when I was in
high school.I am now a 56 year old grandma! I liked...
Schools' Out,Billion Dollar Baby,Only Women Bleed,
to name a few off the top of my head.Ahhh,Welcome
to My Nightmare.
Has anyone ever listen to T-Rex and Uriah Heep?
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.
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.
