Written by Lisa Torem: Longtime Alice Cooper fans flocked to Nashville to witness a rare, one-off reunion. Original Alice Cooper band members, guitarist Michael Bruce, bassist Dennis Dunaway and drummer Neal Smith gave guests exactly what they came for, a chance to witness the original Alice Cooper Band members on stage together for the first time in decades.

They performed at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center’s Andrew Jackson Hall playing a mini-set on Sunday, May 14. The 2011 Hall of Famers joined in for the last several songs of Alice Cooper’s “Spend the Night” concert which is touring through June 24.

The night’s set included the pulsating “Muscle of Love”, “Billion Dollar Babies” the irreverent “School’s Out”, “No More Mister Nice Guy” and the iconic “Eighteen”.

Current Cooper guitarist Ryan Roxie substituted for the late Glen Buxton. For the closing song, “School’s Out,” the original lineup were joined by Cooper’s current bandmates: guitarists Ryan Roxie and Tommy Henricksen, bassist Chuck Garric and drummer Glen Sobel.

The reunion continued the following night playing to an intimate crowd attending the Music Business Associate’s conference. The set was “I’m Eighteen”, “Under My Wheels”, “Billion Dollar Babies”, “No More Mister Nice Guy”, “Muscle of Love” and ending with “Schools Out”.

The Music Business Association (Music Biz) presented the original Alice Cooper Band and Alice Cooper’s manager Toby Mamis special lifetime achievement awards prior to the performance. Bruce, Dunaway and Smith have also been contributing cowriters to Cooper’s upcoming “Paranormal”, a twelve-track, Bob Ezrin-produced project, set to come out on July 28 of this year (earMUSIC).



Original Alice Cooper Group Honored At

The original Alice Cooper band was honored at the ‘Music Biz 2017’ show in Nashville last night!  The surviving band members were introduced on stage to receive their Outstanding Achievement Awards from longtime producer Bob Ezrin, after which they performed 6 songs to the delighted crowd.  Filling the guitar duties of Glen Buxton was Ryan Roxie, who also performed alongside the original band during their performance the previous evening in Nashville.  The Setlist for the Music Biz 2017 show was:

I’m Eighteen

Under My Wheels

Billion Dollar Babies

No More Mr Nice Guy

Muscle Of Love

School’s Out

By Joseph Hudak

Alice Cooper played five classic songs with his band’s original Seventies lineup at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center on Sunday. Cooper previously reunited with the four surviving members of his band in 2015 at an intimate gig in a Dallas, Texas record store.

After the shock-rock pioneer’s requisite beheading by guillotine, the Tennessee theater went dark and Cooper’s touring band, save for guitarist Ryan Roxie, ceded the stage to the Seventies lineup: bassist Dennis Dunaway, guitarist Michael Bruce and drummer Neal Smith.

With the album cover to 1973’s Billion Dollar Babies unfurled behind them, Cooper emerged in a gold snakeskin suit to lead what was billed as a “mini set” of “I’m Eighteen,” “Billion Dollar Babies,” “No More Mr. Nice Guy” and “Muscle of Love.” Both current and vintage lineups joined forces for the show-closing “School’s Out,” with Cooper donning a Nashville Predators jersey (No. 18, naturally) to show support for the playoff run of Music City’s NHL franchise.

The reunion marked the first time the Alice Cooper band has performed together with any elaborate stage production since their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011, and their appearance at the Golden Gods Awards that same year. Smith, Dunaway and Bruce have been collaborating with Cooper in Nashville, where the 69-year-old singer recorded his new album Paranormal with longtime producer Bob Ezrin. The project, set for release July 28th, features U2’s Larry Mullen Jr., ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons and Deep Purple’s Roger Glover and includes a special bonus disc of three new songs by the classic lineup.

The original Alice Cooper group played together from the mid-Sixties through 1975, when the singer launched a solo career with the same name and released the album Welcome to My Nightmare. Cooper’s original guitarist Glen Buxton died in 1997.
