A Complete Nightmare! Alice Cooper’s Colouring Book Is For Sale
Now the nightmare might be complete. Michigan's own shock-rocker Alice Cooper now has a coloring book. It's being sold through eyesoremerch.com (and doesn't that name seem appropriate) and they're taking pre-orders now, but the book comes out in late August.
Now, first, let's clarify something, and this may seem a bit absurd, given that Cooper is in his mid-70's and we're talking about coloring books here, but this colouring (British spelling) book is being billed as "the official" Alice Cooper colouring book. There's actually another coloring book that came out last year, and you can check that one out on Amazon here. Maybe you're into coloring, and then you could have not one, but two Alice Cooper coloring books.
By the way, the publisher, Rock N' Roll Colouring, also has coloring books that feature Judas Priest, Megadeth, Motörhead and Thin Lizzy. (This is an eye-opener. Adults coloring in coloring books?)
Give the old boy credit, though. Here's a 1970's rocker who's staying relevant, having just finished some commercials with quarterback Baker Mayfield for Progressive Insurance.
Earlier this year, Cooper released his 28th album, Detroit Stories, and it debuted at No. 1 on the album charts, which also is the first time he ever accomplished that.
In 1970, fledgling producer Bob Ezrin walked into a farmhouse on the outskirts of Detroit to work with the Alice Cooper band. Abandoning flower power Los Angeles, because they were the opposite of the hippie peace and love ideal, Alice had brought his decidedly darker gang back to his birthplace to the legendary rock scene that gave birth to hard rock, garage rock, soul, funk, punk…and more. - Liner notes for Detroit Stories.
Given Cooper's persona, maybe it's safe to say, rock 'n roll ain't dead yet.
