Alice Cooper is in Pittsburgh today for the latest stop on his tour with English rock legends Deep Purple and white-haired bluesman Edgar Winter. In addition to sawing off stone-cold classics like “I’m Eighteen,” “Billion Dollar Babies” and “School’s Out,” the original king of 1970s shock rock will play a cut or two from his 27th (!) and latest album Paranormal, which features guest shots from ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, Deep Purple’s Roger Glover and the surviving members of the original Alice Cooper band. But the most unexpected guest of all has to be U2’s Larry Mullen, who plays drums on nine of the record’s 12 tracks. “Larry really changed the sound of the album,” Coop tells Revolver. “When you get a drummer that comes in and says, ‘Let me see the lyrics,’ that’s pretty different. And he doesn’t play the way a normal 4/4 drummer would play — he changes things up — which inspires you to change the way that you write a little bit.”

At 69, Coop seems to have more energy than most 19-year-olds, putting in hour-plus performances every night while playing a round of golf every morning before the show. “I shot one over [par] today,” he enthuses. “I’ve been in that groove lately: The shows have been excellent and golf has been excellent. I know the show is always gonna be excellent, but golf can go up or down.”

    Can’t wait for next year’s return to Little Rock. Nita and the rest of the band are at the top of the game! And Alice never disappoints. Would love to see him play a round of golf sometime! Alice, you are the best in rock music.

    Amazing concert last night at Blossom Music Center!!! Alice was spectacular and always a treat to introduce to my son’s generation! Great to see Edgar Winter and hear his band live! Can’t wait for the next tour when he will be back in NE Ohio!
