Alice Cooper – Hey Stoopid – LP
This is his 19th album and what a collection of fun it is!!!! most glam rock poseurs don’t take themselves as lightly as good old (and he really is now) Alice Cooper does, but the mere fact that he is a music industry survivor and radio show host indicates to us that this is more like a peaceful communication of mayhem to the world rather than the inklings of a self-obsessed egomaniac.
He is the guy who made makeup running down your face fashionable, black stovepipes everyday wear and celeb collabs part of an album. On this one you hear mucho celeb guitar heroes popping up: Steve Vai, Nikki Sixx, Joe Satriani, Mick Mars (Motley Crue), Vinnie Moore, Ozzy Osbourne & Slash.
But why should you buy this LP in particular?
Well there haven’t been many reissues of Cooper albums, and this one comes after years of boozehound behaviour that probably meant his albums released during that time would not be the high point of his career
