Original Alice Cooper Band Reunites For Special Event
Cooper made a surprise appearance at a signing event at the city's Good Records for bassist Dennis Dunaway's new book, "Snakes! Guillotines! Electric Chairs!: My Adventures in the Alice Cooper Group."
Along with original guitarist Michael Bruce, drummer Neal Smith and current Cooper guitarist Ryan Roxie, the lineup delivered an 8-song set of classic tracks, that included "Caught in A Dream", "Be My Lover", "I'm Eighteen", "Is It My Body", "No More Mr. Nice Guy", "Under My Wheels", "School's Out" and "Elected."
Original lead guitarist Glen Buxton died in 1997 of complications from pneumonia at the age of 49. The Alice Cooper Band was formed in 1968 with members of the Phoenix, AZ group The Spiders, and went on to record 7 albums of classic material - including 4 platinum records - before splitting in 1975, following which Cooper launched a solo career with "Welcome To My Nightmare."
