Dennis Dunaway of Original Alice Cooper Band (INTERVIEW)

Dennis Dunaway was there at the beginning  and co-wrote some of Alice Cooper's most notable songs, including "I'm Eighteen" and "School's Out". He ran track with pre-Alice Vince Furnier in high school and prodded him to start a band after seeing the great guitar slinger Duane Eddy. And it is Dunaway who is the keeper of the memories, a title that makes him laugh when I call him this during our interview earlier this year. But his stories of days-gone-by belie his denial as they are vividly clear, told with surprising detail and in such a way that the listener is kept spellbound as if the event happened yesterday, as if you were actually there with bass player Dunaway, drummer Neal Smith, guitarists Michael Bruce and Glen Buxton (who passed away in 1997) and ringleader Cooper.

Alice Cooper: Beau Rivage, Biloxi, Mississippi, 06/08/12

Starting a new leg of the No More Mr Nice Guy tour that began last year, Alice Cooper has made a few changes, tweaked a few songs and brought the overall nucleus back to the music. Cooper, known as much for his stage theatrics as his anthemic songs and rabid raccoon eye makeup, has toned down his over-the-top spectacle just a tad and made his recorded repertoire more of a musically vivid presence. Having last witnessed him in 2009, where he brought out everything but the snake, this time around he was just Alice; albeit in black leather, studded top hat and another stellar band beside him. “He’s such an amazing showman,” guitarist Orianthi praised before the show. “He gets so into character, it’s scary (laughs).”
