CooperLegendary rocker Alice Cooper recently spoke to RollingStone.com about his upcoming covers album, which he plans to start recording in December for a 2014 release.

“We do a thing in our show, which is a tribute to Hollywood Vampires, my drinking club,” Cooper explained. “And it was Keith MoonJohn Lennon,Harry NilssonMicky Dolenz — a very eclectic bunch of drunks. Half of them are dead, so we do four songs in the show in tribute to them. We do‘Break On Through’‘Revolution’‘My Generation’ and Jimi Hendrix‘s‘Foxey Lady’. I just kind of said, ‘We’ve never done a covers album, let’s think about that.’ So [producer BobEzrin and I are kind of bouncing it around right now.”

Asked what some of the wish-list songs are, Cooper said: “I would keep it right to about ’73, ’74. I don’t want to just go anywhere. I want to keep it right in that sort of drunk era, so it’s specific. I would say ‘Break On Through’, that’s a really good rock track there. The other ones, think of it — Harry Nilsson, there’s a lot of good stuff there that could be rocked out. I think of songs as being clay. Take a song like ‘Jump Into the Fire’and take that to a harder level, and that’ll work.”
