The Temptations: Masterpiece

Wayne Robins, Creem, July 1973

It is 1978, and for the first time in half a decade, three consecutive Alice Cooper singles fail to reach the top fifty. Burbank has millions invested in their multi-dollar babies, so an emergency executive meeting is called. Shep Gordon, Alice's manager, is made a vice-president and given a considerable amount of Kinney stock. Then they fire Alice.

Total word count of piece: 645
