KFIX Rock News: Alice Cooper Preps Covers Album

alicein2Alice Cooper recently sat down with Billboard to discuss an album of cover tunes he expects to release next year.

Saying he’s “three-quarters of the way through” the project, he adds, “We’re really happy, all of us, everyone involved in the covers because it’s pretty much what we wanted to do,”

“We specified a certain time period and said, ‘Let’s stay within that. Let’s not move it around too much.’”

“We don’t want to be doing cover songs from the 80s and 90s when the Hollywood vampires kind of thing was more ’73, ’74, ’75.”

The “Hollywood Vampires” was the “drinking club” Alice belonged to in the early and mid-70s that included the likes of John Lennon, the Who’s Keith Moon, Harry Nilsson, Marc Bolan of T-Rex and others.

Cooper and his band are previewing four of the covers in concert during their current tour: The Doors’ “Break On Through (to the Other Side),” the Beatles’”Revolution,” the Jimi Hendrix Experience’s “Foxy Lady,” and the Who’s “My Generation.”

The rest of the song list is being kept under wraps for now.

“We have September off, so we’ll probably take that time and just finish it,” Cooper said.

“I think we could finish the whole thing in September and it’ll be out, I would say, by early spring.”
