Forget about guillotines, spiders, Vincent Price and Frankenstein. This is a more down-to-earth, less twisted and surreal version of Alice, even if the record does occasionally touch base with the likes of From the Inside.
Shock Rock king Alice Cooper has shared the first new music from his upcoming new album. “Rock & Roll” is the first song from Detroit Stories and features Steve Hunter, Johnny Bee, Paul Randolph, and “Honorary Detroiter” Joe Bonamassa. “Rock & Roll,” a classic song by The Velvet Underground from the album Loaded.
