Alice Cooper’s new album, ‘Detroit Stories’ formed by early influences

Alice Cooper spends his latest album, “Detroit Tales,” having to pay tribute to a town that looms massive in Cooper legend for evident motives. 

Initial and foremost, he was born there.

And despite the fact that he met the other founding users of the Alice Cooper group in Phoenix, where his relatives moved when he was 12, the Cortez Superior Faculty observe star and his bandmates were sharing a farmhouse on the outskirts of Detroit when they recorded “I’m Eighteen,” their breakthrough one.

They’d moved to Detroit right after several several years in California, the place they cut their initially two albums for Frank Zappa’s Straight Records.

As Cooper, who now lives in Paradise Valley with his spouse, Sheryl Cooper, describes, they did not feel as much like outcasts on the Detroit scene, surrounded by such kindred spirits as the Stooges and the MC5.
