Unfortunately, Alice Cooper -- and this ties in with our discussions on the AOR thread -- is another victim of shrinking Classic Rock radio playlists. OTTOMH, I can name six or seven of his former AOR hits, including some really good ballads, that are ignored today because the suits decided that "School's Out", "No More Mr. Nice Guy" and "Eighteen" are the only tracks that listeners want to hear.
I did spend an entire evening sampling songs on Itunes....could not get into Mr. Cooper's stuff.
I was just a little guy when he would have been at his peak....so I can't speak to his affect on the era....good to know there is some stuff there worth listening to.
