Tags: Alice Cooper, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Our friend Ben was thrilled to learn this morning that one of my longtime faves, Alice Cooper, has finally been given the nod and will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this coming March. Woohoo! God knows it’s taken them long enough.
In addition to decades’ worth of wonderful songs (including “Poison,” “School’s Out,” “Billion Dollar Babies,” “Bed of Nails,” “Can’t Sleep, Clowns Will Eat Me,” “House of Fire,” “I Never Cry,” “No More Mr. Nice Guy,” “Welcome to My Nightmare,” and, of course, “Elected”), Alice is widely recognized as the Godfather of punk rock, costume-rock megastars like Kiss, and the like. He was the first, and he may well be the last. I’m glad to see that he’s been “Elected” at last.
