Alice Cooper is almost tempted to go back to his ‘blackout albums’ and reproduce some of those songs
Shock rocker Alice Cooper was recently interviewed by Yahoo Music‘s editor in chief Lyndsey Parker.
Cooper touched on his ‘blackout albums’ consisting of his albums recorded in the early ’80s — Flush The Fashion (1980), Special Forces (1981), Zipper Catches Skin (1982) and DaDa (1983) — which he does not remember due to being under the influence of illicit substances during those years.
With respect to those albums, Cooper indicated (with slight edits):
“I was basically writing these trippy little songs that now I listen to, and I don’t remember writing them. I don’t remember producing them. I don’t remember touring with them. I might have been involved in the cocaine blizzard that was going on in Los Angeles at the time.”
“Now I listen to them and I go, ‘Wow! That song is so good!… I am almost tempted to go back into those albums and reproduce some of those songs, because some of the songs were so clever that I hate to see them just disappear.”
