“Recordings ranging from a 1909 gospel recording to the Sex Pistols’ epochal punk album are among the 2015 inductees into the Recording Academy’s Grammy Hall of Fame.

The 27 new inductees, which cut across the entire spectrum of musical genres, brings the total list of Hall of Fame titles (both albums and single recordings) to 987. Each year a special member committee determines a group of recordings, at least 25 years old, which exhibit qualitative or historical importance.

Hall of Fame titles are displayed in an interactive exhibit at the Grammy Museum in downtown L.A. This year’s inductees will be commemorated in a collector’s edition book that will also focus on the Grammy Foundation’s Grammy Camp program and its preservation and archiving initiatives.

Recording Academy prexy and CEO Neil Portnow said in a statement, “This year’s Grammy Hall Of Fame entries not only represent a diverse collection of influential and historically significant recordings but also reflect the changing climate of music through the decades. These memorable, inspiring and iconic recordings are proudly added to our growing catalog — knowing that they have become a part of our musical, social, and cultural history.”"

Details on Alice Cooper Guitar released!

Telltale crimson drops bespatter a snow-white palette, and from deep within a piercing gaze of savage intensity lashes out, an aphotic visage taking in an unholy landscape. There’s something brooding and transcendent in his aspect, an ominous man, pugnacious and sanguineous. Who is this man behind the ferocious Cimmerian stare? Who’s responsible for this truculent view of the World that’s black and white and spotted with blood? It could only be one man. It could only be the groundbreaking artist behind the seminal hits, “Killer,” “School’s Out,” ”Billion Dollar Babies,” and “Muscle of Love.” It could only be Alice Cooper.

He’s an original rock icon, a man who created his own genre. And now Alice is the inspiration for a new electric guitar from ASG. Only 50 hand-numbered ASG Alice Cooper models will be created—ever. Each instrument is finished by master craftsmen in our Fullerton shop and shipped with a certificate of authenticity. The classic axe comes with all the trimmings, from a hand-carved mahogany top, and solid mahogany body, to a rosewood fingerboard and timeless mother-of-pearl trapezoid inlays. The package is completed by a Gravedigger headstock, custom ASG Arsenal pickups and chrome ASG headstock emblem. This eye-catching, mojo machine is bound throughout and is perfect for any fan of Alice. While it’s made to rock the stage, it’s also a gorgeous tribute, finished and fit for any fan’s display. Only a limited amount of custom Alice Cooper guitars by ASG will produced, and you’re bound to love it to death—don’t miss out!
