Alice Cooper: Welcome To My Nightmare, Again

"He's Back" is Alice Cooper's theme song for Friday The 13th, Part 6 - but could just as well apply to Cooper himself. The legendary frontman is making a strong comeback with the late 1986 release of Constrictor (MCA) and a U.S. tour after five years off the road.

The author of "I'm 18" and "School's Out" is rocking heavy with a live act that includes his infamous guillotine. "It's more dangerous [now] than it was," says Cooper. "It could actually cut my head off. I want the audience to know it's not fallible." And what if something actually goes wrong? "Well," laughs the original shock-rock king, "I could only do it once, but it would be a great show."
