Alice Cooper Taking His Original Band on Tour in the U.K.

by VVN Music

Alice Cooper is bringing Dennis Dunaway, Michael Bruce and Neal Smith, his original bandmates in the Alice Cooper Band, along on his upcoming tour of the U.K.

Cooper will be combining his past with the present as the original band will play a set followed by his current band which will feature music from his latest album, Paranormal (out July 28) along with other music from his career.

The resurrection of the original Alice Cooper Band has included the recording of two songs on the new album along with six songs from a show in Columbus along with a few other live appearances.

Alice said of the reunion "When the original band broke up in 1975, there was no bad blood. There were no lawsuits — we had just burned out the creative process. We had gone to high school together and had recorded something like five Platinum albums in a row. We were never out of sight of each other for 10 years. Everybody just went their own way. Neal, Dennis and I always stayed in touch. Mike disappeared for a while and Glen Buxton passed away in 1997, which was a big blow.

“But last year Neal called me up and said, ‘I have a couple of songs.’ I said great, bring ‘em over. Then he said Mike was stopping by, so I had them come to my house and we just worked on a few things for a week. Then Dennis called up and said, I got a couple songs. So, I thought, hey let’s do this! When you listen to the record, it just fits right in."
