Killer Alice they call him - and it's not surpring. Of ll the American bands to have emerged in the past few years it's Alice Cooper that have captured the imagination of British audiences - pulling in sell out signs from every appearance, and featuring in both the singles and albums charts.
In SOUNDS Musicians Poll (results this week on page 14), Alice and the band have swept to victory in no less than four major categories.
In the International Section Alice himself won as Top Male Vocalist and the band scooped up awards as Band; Album Design for "School's Out"; Top Album for "School's Out".
They also managed to follow this success by having their "Killer" collection voted into third place in the Top Album section and being named second in the New Band section. All in all quite a feat.
Okay Alice - you've made your point. Congratulations!
Well, Alice certainly got himself elected! Alice and band swept through the International Section of this years poll - winning four separate awards. Of the four - which included Best Band, Best Album "School's Out", and Album Design for the same collection - the biggest surprise was his win as Male Vocalist. For this he usurped Neil Young, James Taylor, Beefheart, Robert Plant, Bolan, in fact all the giants in the field on both sides of the Atlantic.
