Legendary rocker Alice Cooper is finally getting his well-deserved and well-overdue spot in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Check out the video! 

I have seen this musical genius every year since I was 18. My dad, also a passionate music lover, and I go every year to see him if he is in the area. He is almost in his mid 60s, but prances around on the stage in his tight leather clothes as if he were 20. He not only performs, but puts on the most amazing show I have been lucky enough to see many times. He is truly amazing, and he deserves this more than anybody.

Other than his induction, Cooper is releasing ‘Welcome 2 My Nightmare,’ which is a sequel album to his 1975 platinum album ‘Welcome to My Nightmare.’ The finishing touches are currently being put on the album.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait until this comes out! He’s worked with other musical legends to put this sequel together, so it should be phenomenal.

According to Alice, portions of the LP — for which Cooper and producer Ezrin wrote songs with BUCKCHERRY guitarist Keith Nelson — reunite the surviving Alice Cooper members. Others were recorded with members of Cooper’s touring band, as well as former guitarists Steve Hunter and Dick Wagner. The CD also features cameos from Rob Zombie, former MARILYN MANSON and current ROB ZOMBIE guitarist John 5 and Vince Gill.-

Also, Cooper and his cronies will be taking off with another summer tour, to be called “No More Mr. Nice Guy.” The tour kicks off in the states May 12-21, will then travel to South America May 25-June 3, to Europe June 7-July 16, and then return to the U.S. for the remainder of August. A full list of cities will be announced soon. I hope he comes to town again this year. Every time I see him he gets better and better, and my heart grows more for him each time. He is the epitome of a true rock and roll legend.

The four surviving ALICE COOPER band members — Alice Cooper (vocals), Neal Smith (drums), Michael Bruce (rhythm guitar), Dennis Dunaway (bass) — will perform at their Rock And Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony on March 14 in New York City, and again at the Revolver Golden Gods Awardsshow in on April 20 in Los Angeles, California. Guitarist Steve Hunter, who played in Cooper’s “Welcome to My Nightmare” band, will fill in for the late Glen Buxton.
