Kentucky Headhunters Cover Alice Cooper Classic On New Album

Kentucky Headhunters

(Gibson) Veteran rockers the Kentucky Headhunters are gearing up for the release of On Safari, a collection of fiery blues-tinged and country-flavored rockers that rank with the best work the pioneering southern band has ever recorded. The album features all-original material, with one exception - a blistering cover of the 1971 Alice Cooper classic, "Caught in a Dream."

"That was [drummer] Fred Young's idea," says Headhunter guitarist Greg Martin. "He and [his brother] Richard had the Love it to Death album in the early '70s. That's such a great song. We didn't do it exactly like the Alice Cooper group did it - we changed the format around a bit and tried to bring something of our own spark to it, hopefully."

Martin, who's a big fan of original Alice Cooper guitarist Michael Bruce's songwriting, says he detects an "early Cooper" influence in the work of other southern bands. Read more here.
