Alice Cooper: From The Inside

Penny Valentine, Melody Maker, 9 December 1978

ALICE NEVER really was a contender for the world's greatest rock musician or singer (that's why he had to "kill" chickens and babies every night on stage), and he certainly never took it as seriously as his mentor Frank Zappa pretended not to. It was all a facade, a game, fun for money. So Alice played.
