Alice Cooper, All-American Boy Exposed InTheStudio
Dallas, TX - July 15, 2014. North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio with Redbeard: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands presents a tutorial on why little boys shouldn't play with meat cleavers, nooses, high voltage, snakes, and Mommy's make-up and fishnet stockings'unless you plan on going into show business as the King of Shock Rock, Alice Cooper!
Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Alice Cooper is on the road and on the big screen this summer, touring with his rock progeny Motley Crue (just one of the hundreds which Cooper inspired), and featured in a new documentary film/dvd titled Super Duper Alice Cooper, so the time seems right for Alice's brand of wrong for InTheStudio.
The band Alice Cooper made notorious headlines but few fans when they first appeared on the radio in 1971 with Love It to Death. Alice's stage act then was confrontational, even horrifying, and without the campy humor that would inform the act just two years later on Billion Dollar Babies.
But what made Alice Cooper a household name was the savvy string of hits, indelibly changing the rock concert world while revolutionizing American Top 40 radio at the same time with 'I'm Eighteen', 'Under My Wheels', 'Be My Lover', 'School's Out', 'Elected', 'No More Mister Nice Guy', 'Welcome to My Nightmare' and 'Only Women Bleed' from five Top 10-selling albums.
The career ride for Alice Cooper careened from the whole band sleeping in one motel room to the covers of Time and Newsweek magazines; from fairways to national airwaves; from rehab to Rock Hall in 2011. Alice reflects with InTheStudio host Redbeard on why Alice Cooper connected then, and lives on today.
' I think it was because we were such a shock to the nation, image-wise. We were the band that drove the stake through the heart of the Love Generation. Everything that the hippies didn't believe in. For the first time in a long time music was not political, it was fun! Alice Cooper was like the biggest juvenile delinquent Rock and Roll horror show of all time. But not only the image was there, the most important thing in our mind was the fact that the music has to stand up years from now. It has to stand up even after they forgot what we did on stage.'
