Alice Coopers Wants X Factor/Idol Like Show For Rock Bands

(Gibson) Rock legend Alice Cooper has said that he wants to create a rock and roll TV reality show. According to NME.com Cooper feels that contemporary rock bands lack "attitude."

He told the U.K.'s Daily Star, ahead of his appearance at the Download festival, "Forget The X Factor, I'd like to see a TV show that discovers a real songwriting rock genius," he said. "I'd call it Lunatic Fringe. Bands don't have attitude any more. They're all beige and have no showmanship. My generation was the opposite. Striving for normality was never an option."

Alice Cooper also said that he's a fan of pop acts with attitude, like Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. "It's infinitely more fun watching somebody like Lady Gaga. The same with Katy Perry. She's got a great pop sense." more on this story
