Alice Cooper

We are very proud to announce that Alice Cooper was today nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Everyone's favourite shock rocker had the following to say;

"On behalf of Dennis (Dunaway), Neal (Smith), Michael (Bruce) and the late great Glen (Buxton), we are honored to be nominated for induction in to the Hall. Anytime you are nominated in your chosen profession, it's definitely a compliment to be recognized.

It's hard to fathom possibly being in the same club as artists who inspired us originally, like the Beatles, the Stones, the Beach Boys, the Who, the Yardbirds, and Chuck Berry, and to be nominated the same year as legendary artists like my personal favorite songwriter of all time, Laura Nyro, as well as Donovan, who sang on our "Billion Dollar Babies" record, and our good friends in Bon Jovi, is a great feeling.

Five guys starting a band, just hoping to meet girls and drink free beer, rehearsing and playing local bars five hours a night for the first few years, that was us.   We came up with the theatrics without sacrificing the music one bit, it was like our job to bring theatrics to rock'n roll.    And then, amazingly enough, having a bunch of massive hit records, proving that theatrics and rock'n roll work together, revolutionizing the live concert experience, and it all leads to this -- to be nominated for induction into the Hall of Fame.  There's no business like show business!"
