The Original ALICE COOPER BAND's 2015 Reunion Will Be Released As Live Set

Live From The Astroturf will be released this fall.


The reunion of the original Alice Cooper Group from 2015 will be released on September 30 as part of a vinyl + DVD combo called Live From The Astroturf. The show was originally billed as a book signing for bassist Dennis Dunaway, but fans who came out to the signing were surprised with a reunion of the original Alice Cooper Band lineup, which was active between 1964 and 1974. The nine-song set features Cooper, Dunaway, guitarist Michael Bruce, drummer Neal Smith, and current Alice Cooper guitarist Ryan Roxie who stood in for the late Glen Buxton.

As for Alice himself, in a new interview with Rolling Stone Deutschland, he shared what has made his phenomenal live production work decade after decade. If you've only got a second, I'll boil it down for you: don't be a jerk, and people will like working for you, is Cooper's advice.

"I think it starts at the top. I think that whoever's leading the band, the other guys mold into that. So I treat the guy that sweeps the stage with the same respect as I treat the guitar player, or the bass player – everybody gets treated the same," Cooper told RS. "If, we have a night off, for example. I'll invite everybody to dinner. We take 35-40 people to dinner. And that means everybody – the lowest guy on the totem pole is treated exactly the same as the band.

"And to me, once you do that, you get loyalty – you know, most guys don't even know who worked for them. I know everybody that works for me. And I know pretty much their families…And that way, every show, everybody wants to do the best show that night, make it represent the best thing. And I want them to have pride in the show. Not just the fact that, 'Oh, all I do is the lighting.' I go 'No. Without that lighting I don't look good. So you are as important as I am.' That's how I think you work a band."

Alice Cooper is currently working his band to pleasant perfection out on the road, and you can check all confirmed dates below.
