ALICE COOPER SPEAKS THE TRUTH!
Good on Alice Cooper – always reliable to be a total legend and a voice of reason in this increasingly watered down world. Last week, Alice came out the quote of the year – “Don’t call [Mumford & Sons] rock ‘n’ roll. That’s an offence to rock ‘n’ roll”.
Alice was reacting to the 1800’s shop keepers being nominated for Billboard’s ‘Rock Song of the Year’ award for their tune, [who cares?]. Alice proceed to elaborate on the comment by suggesting they need get a little meat into their system and perhaps Billboard needs to re-examine their idea of Rock ‘N’ Roll.
”I look at a magazine and it says ‘best new rock band’ and I go, ‘Rock bands don’t have accordions or lutes in them’,”
”I just feel like this whole generation maybe need to all eat a steak,”
“Maybe they just need to quit eating vegetarian food and get out there and get some blood pumping in their system”
