It’s the day after Halloween and before you’re ear drums are filled with Christmas music, we’d like to extend the horror music for at least another 24 hours.
Known as a horror-rocker, Alice Cooper is an American rock singer, songwriter and musician and is most known for his elaborate stage shows featuring guillotines, electric chairs, fake blood, snakes and baby dolls from time-to-time.
Some of Cooper’s most loyal fans consider him to be “The Godfather of Shock Rock”, and his stage performances are drawn from horror movies, vaudeville and garage rock.
Welcome to My Nightmare was Cooper’s eighth studio album and first solo album of his career. The record was considered a “concept album” and the songs heard in sequence form a journey through the nightmares of a small boy named Steven.
The title track goes from disco to jazz to hard rock and horn-blasted R&B in a short period of five minutes.
Cooper’s musical career has spanned over five decades and he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in March of 2011 by fellow horror-rocker Rob Zombie. Cooper is set to release a new cover songs album in the spring of 2014.
Hope you enjoy this week’s OBX Tunes single… Have a great weekend!
