Alice Cooper Nominated For Songwriters Hall Of Fame

Alice Cooper Rock icon Alice Cooper's catalog is rich with hits and anthems that have become definitive of a generation, among them "School's Out," "Elected," No More Mr. Nice Guy," "I'm Eighteen," "Only Women Bleed," "You And Me," "I Never Cry," "How You Gonna See Me Now," and "Poison." Due to this illustrious history and legacy, Cooper has been nominated for induction in the Songwriters Hall of Fame's prestigious "Performing Songwriter" category.

Many of Alice's songs have been covered worldwide by other artists, everyone from Etta James, Elkie Brooks, Tina Turner, and Julie Covington to Anthrax, Joan Jett, Def Leppard, and Megadeth.

The Songwriters Hall of Fame is dedicated to recognizing the work and lives of those composers and lyricists who create music around the world. To qualify for induction, a songwriter must be a published writer for a minimum of 20 years with a notable catalog of hit songs. Inductees will be feted at the organization's Annual Induction & Awards Gala on June 14, 2018, in New York City.

Cooper released his 27th album Paranormal this past July via earMUSIC.

Paranormal features special guests such as U2's Larry Mullen Jr., who plays on 9 of the 12 new songs; Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top; and Deep Purple's Roger Glover, as well as a long-anticipated mini-reunion of the original Alice Cooper band members on several songs.
