Alice Cooper to reunite with original band for Hall of Fame induction

When Alice Cooper arrives at New York’s Waldorf-Astoria March 14th for his introduction into Rock and Roll’s Hall of Fame , the legendary shock-rocker will come equipped with a couple tubes of makeup, gallons of fake blood, and the rest of Alice Cooper. And no, it won’t be replacement parts the 62 year old has laying around, but the original line-up of Alice Cooper, the band.

Before continuing under the moniker solo, Vincent Damon Furnier was lead vocal for the high school band that would eventually develop the revolutionary live imagery, seven studio albums, and the anthems “I’m Eighteen”, “School’s Out” and “Billion Dollar Babies”. Backing the future lone Cooper were Glen Buxton (lead guitar), Michael Bruce (rhythm guitar), Dennis Dunaway (bass guitar), and Neal Smith (drummer). But when the band hits the stage mid-March, they’ll be minus-one, after the passing of Buxton in 1997.

While no confirmed dates have been announced, Cooper told Rolling Stone that future performances are planned to coincide with the Hall of Fame relaunch. But don’t get the face paint and leather ready too soon; they’re currently only eying stops in Detroit, Los Angeles, New York, London, and Toronto.
