Alice Cooper unearthing old demos with original band members for new album
It’s been no secret that Alice Cooper will be reuniting with the remaining original band members from the Alice Cooper band that released some of the best albums of all-time in Love It To Death (1971), Killer (1971), School’s Out (1972) and Billion Dollar Babies (1973) but it appears that the foursome have found some old vintage demos from back in the day upon which to complete new songs together.
Excerpts from an article from Steve Kostan was posted on the CBS Local website yesterday and state:
“Counting Alice, four members are still around and they’re doing demos and laying down ideas right now.
Alice said they found three songs left over from the early days and they’re going to see if there’s anything there to use. Sometimes they may use only part of one song and add a a new part. Change and rearrange.
The hidden maestro of albums is the producer. Alice and the band are using veteran producer Bob Ezrin who was a key player is crafting those early Alice albums.
The team is in place!”
Guitarist Glen Buxton passed away on October 19, 1997 but drummer Neal Smith, guitarist Michael Bruce and bassist Dennis Dunaway have made live appearances with Alice Cooper during the last few years.
