Rock Legend Alice Cooper To Be Inducted Into Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

Industry insiders are reporting that rock and metal legend Alice Cooper will finally be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame on March 14, 2011 at its 26th yearly induction ceremony.

Alice Cooper began as the lead singer and frontman of the band of the same name with the release of their debut album, Pretties For You, in 1969. Cooper launched his solo career in 1975 with the release of the concept album, Welcome To My Nightmare, an epic recording that was produced by the brilliant Bob Ezrin.

Cooper established himself firmly in the era of shock rock and early glam metal — his career spanning beyond 30 years, and releasing songs such as School’s Out, Poison, Hey Stoopid, and Brutal Planet. He is known for his concept albums, and theatrical live performance that featured the “execution of Alice Cooper” every night — usually portrayed as death by guillotine. He’s left such an impact on the music world and would eventually become a massive influence on almost all sub-genre of metal.

It appears that all members of the original Alice Cooper band might be in consideration for this Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction, as Alice Cooper released a statement saying, “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”.

Alice Cooper will be inducted along with Neil Diamond, Tom Waits, Dr. John, and Darlene Love at the Waldorf-Astoria in Manhattan, which will be televised live on Fuse.

In the meantime, Alice Cooper and Bob Ezrin are continuing work on Welcome To My Nightmare II, an album penned to be the sequel to the original continuing the story of “when Steven met Alice Cooper“. Cooper states that the new album is “more bloody” than the first, and according to Wikipedia, there are also indications that original Alice Cooper bandmates Dennis Dunaway, Neal Smith, and Michael Bruce have reunited with the frontman for three new songs on the album.
