Alice Cooper to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
According to Azcentral.com, shock rock icon ALICE COOPER has confirmed that he will be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame with his band March 14.
Cooper, 62, said Tuesday that he was notified a week ago by the Cleveland-based organization that he and his group will be part of its 26th class.
"Getting in the Hall of Fame is about the ultimate thing you can do when you're a garage band from Cortez High in Phoenix," Cooper said. "It's the most humbling thing in the world when you realize who else is in there. You look out at the audience, and every guy who influenced you is sitting there, and they are the people who voted on you."
Cooper and his original band - guitarist Michael Bruce, bassist Dennis Dunaway, drummer Neal Smith and late guitarist Glen Buxton - will be honored at a ceremony in New York City.
