Alice Cooper says he plans to record an album of classic rock covers. He says the songs he'll choose are inspired by the Hollywood Vampires, his legendary L.A. drinking club from the early to mid-'70s that included John Lennon, Keith Moon, Harry Nilsson and many others.
Cooper tells Rolling Stone, "We do a thing in our show, which is a tribute to the Hollywood Vampires... Half of them are dead, so we do four songs in the show in tribute to them. We do The Doors' 'Break on Through,' The Beatles' 'Revolution,' The Who's 'My Generation' and Jimi Hendrix's 'Foxy Lady.' I just kind of said, 'We've never done a covers album, let's think about that.' So [producer Bob] Ezrin and I are kind of bouncing it around right now."
He says he plans to hit the studio in December after his tour with Marilyn Manson.
