Shooting Off

Rock and roll ghoul Alice Cooper is amused by the elevated status of younger glam bands. "I love the high heels," says Cooper, 43, whose new album in Hey Stoopid. "I know how difficult it is to wear those things. L.A.'s got a very healthy crop of glam bands. They all look like early Alice Cooper." How does Cooper cope with competition? "We're trying harder now. I look at these guys who are 25, and I go out of my way to blow them off the stage, just to show them they have a long way to go. I've got to periodically put on my guns and show them different."
