New Live Alice Cooper CD/DVD Set Due Out October 21


We all know Alice Cooper loves the dead, so it's no surprise his new live recording will be titled "Raise the Dead: Live From Wacken."

The 22-song set, due out on CD and home video on October 21, documents his August 3 appearance at Germany's Wacken Festival and in addition to his own hits features covers of the Doors' "Break On Through," the Who's "My Generation" and a bit of Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2." Proceeds from the set will benefit the Wacken Foundation, which supports new hard rock and heavy metal acts.

Cooper is currently on the road as the special guest for Motley Crue's farewell tour and will be releasing a mostly covers album dedicated to the Hollywood Vampires, a cadre of musical colleagues he hung out with during the early and mid-70s in Los Angeles.
