Earlier today I just bought the two Hollywood Vampires albums from Itunes. Their 2015 self-titled debut and their second album, “Rise”. Haven’t listened to ’em yet but I will this weekend.
I really dig their cover of “Whole Lotta Love”, the Led Zeppelin song. Love it.
I’m sure Alice Cooper, Johnny and Joe Perry will get together to make Hollywood Vampires album no. 3 at some point. That band will get back together as well now that Johnny got his life and career back finally.
I’m a huge fan of Alice Cooper and Joe Perry anyway so I was meaning to get the Hollywood Vampires albums for a long ass time.
Want a perfect way to celebrate Johnny’s victory? Crank up some Hollywood Vampires, loud and proud!
Here is Alice Cooper and his band covering, Lady Gaga’s, “Born This Way”. They don’t call Alice Cooper a shock rocker for nothing. The man is always unpredictable at his live performances.
Some may find this a bit silly, but no matter what you think about Lady Gaga’s music, she is rock n’ roll. She’s a rock musician even though, she has a lot of electronica and pop in her songs. Any rock band can cover her music, and this is proof of it. Honestly, Alice’s version is better than the original and he just made it his own song. I’m sure Gaga herself is flattered he did it.
I’m a huge fan of Gaga and not ashamed of it either. She already has a fourth album in the works, and looking forward to that.
Alice Cooper revealed the big news that Orianthi will be the replacement for departing guitarist, Damon Johnson. For now, Orianthi is just a touring guitarist for Alice Cooper. There’s no word on whether or not she will record in the studio with Alice sometime in the future, yet.
Orianthi is a young shred guitarist, who is underrated and not many people know who she is. She got a little exposure when she did the rehearsal footage with Michael Jackson for the film, “This Is It”. I think she’ll get more recognition with Alice Cooper. Playing with Alice will help her become a little more mainstream.
Alice Cooper announced, that he will perform at the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame with the original band members picture above. Michael Bruce, Dennis Dunaway, and Neal Smith will join the lineup. What song will the Alice Cooper band do? It’s probably going to be either, “School’s Out”, “No More Mr. Nice Guy” or “I’m Eighteen”. Or maybe even all three of them as a medley mix of hits.
While it is great that Alice finally made it, the Hall of Fame is still snubbing a bunch other important bands/artists that deserve to get in. Where is Rush and Kiss? How come Weird Al Yankovic never made it yet, he so deserves it. What about Iron Maiden, Megadeth,Yes, UFO, and hell even, Phil Collin’s solo career got ignored. How about Lionel Richie & the Commodores? Oh, so many important artists that haven’t made it yet!
Well, the inductees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has been revealed for 2011. The inductees for this year will be: Alice Cooper, Neil Diamond, Dr. John, Darlene Love, and Tom Waits. You would think that Bon Jovi would have made it in, no matter what, but you thought wrong. I even thought Bon Jovi was going to get it, but surprisingly he didn’t. I’m willing to bet all the Bon Jovi fans are pissed off and upset. I think Bon Jovi is overrated. His music doesn’t interest me, so I’m glad he didn’t get inducted this year. If Bon Jovi did, he would have overshadowed this year’s inductees.
This year is going to be an interesting jam session. Alice, Neil, Dr. John, Darlene and Tom will all jam together at the end of the show? Probably. This year is a decent year for the Hall of Fame. I like this year’s selections, definitely MUCH better than last year. Finally! A year with true rock n’ roll!
So the nominees for this year’s Hall of Fame has been revealed.
Who do I predict will get inducted? The Hall of Fame usually induct 5 artists each year. So for my prediction on this year’s inductees…
I definitely think Bon Jovi will get inducted no matter what happens. He will probably get the most votes out of everybody. Alice Cooper would get it, no matter what happens. Neil Diamond for sure. As for the last two, I think the J. Geils Band will definitely get in, and possibly Donna Summer. If not Donna Summer, then it will either be Tom Waits or Dr. John.
Honestly though, I think Alice Cooper deserves it more than anybody in the nominees list, simply put, because Alice is true rock n’ roll. Most everyone on this list are pop acts, but Alice is strictly rock. Alice is the fucking man! Always dug his music!
