Round 2: Cinema Dave meets Alice Cooper "The Master's Advice to Young Bands"


On the eve of my interview with Alice, the Grammy Award nominations were announced and **Welcome 2 My Nightmare** was snubbed. Cooper was not phased by this, but acknowledge the current culture of the music and radio business;

"Some of the nominations were boring and good songs are not getting played. Radio does not play what is good, but who is supposed to be the next big thing. An album like **Sargent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band** would not get airplay today.

I feel sorry for young bands today, my advice would be- become the best live band around, learn melody and lyrics from the 70s bands."
