Alice Cooper – the man, not the whole band, is 70 this week.
Very few of Alice’s song get played on the radio apart of School’s Out, Poison and, occasionally, Elected yet he had 19 UK hit singles. He does an excellent weekday evening show on Planet Rock and still goes out on tour.
In my mind, one of his finest songs was from Christmas 1978 and was co-written by Elton’s John’s lifelong collaborator, Bernie Taupin and is called How You Gonna See Me Now. It only reached number 61 in the UK chart but did a lot better in America where it made number 12.
Just through you might like to hear it, admittedly, the live here is not as good as the studio single version.
