  1. While I haven’t closely followed Alice Cooper, I like some of his songs including this tune. And he’s still at it. He has a new album, ‘Detroit Stories,’ coming out on Feb 26.

    I included his cover of Lou Reed’s ‘Rock & Roll’ in my last ‘Sunday Six’. There are also two other (original) tunes that are already available. Sounds like fun!
