Alice Cooper Premieres “The Sound of A” Video

Alice Cooper has premiered a new video for his song “The Sound of A.” This song is featured on his latest album “Paranormal,” but it was actually written a long time ago. In fact, it was the first track Cooper wrote on his own back in 1967. It happened to make it onto this album thanks to original Alice Cooper band bassist Dennis Dunaway, who played it to Cooper after rediscovering it. The two of them updated the song and then recorded the version that is heard on the effort. A special “The Sound of A” single will be available on February 23 on CD and 10″ white vinyl. That release will also include live versions of “The Black Widow”, “Public Animal #9”, “Is It My Body”, and “Cold Ethyl” from a May 6 performance in Columbus, Ohio.

Alice Cooper Casted As King Herod In NBC’s “Jesus Christ Superstar Live!”

Alice Cooper has announced that he has been casted as King Herod in NBC’s “Jesus Christ Superstar Live!,” which will air on Easter (April 1). Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, commented:

“Alice Cooper, whose theatricality is the stuff of legend, is the perfect rock star to play Herod in our live production. Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice wrote a showstopping musical number for Herod and we all look forward to the ‘King of Shock Rock’ taking on the King of Judea. As the casting for ‘Superstar’ ramps up, we can feel the excitement building for this brand new concert experience of what has long been considered the original rock musical.”
