Industry insiders are reporting that rock and metal legend Alice Cooper will finally be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame on March 14, 2011 at its 26th yearly induction ceremony.
Alice Cooper began as the lead singer and frontman of the band of the same name with the release of their debut album, Pretties For You, in 1969. Cooper launched his solo career in 1975 with the release of the concept album, Welcome To My Nightmare, an epic recording that was produced by the brilliant Bob Ezrin.
Cooper established himself firmly in the era of shock rock and early glam metal — his career spanning beyond 30 years, and releasing songs such as School’s Out, Poison, Hey Stoopid, and Brutal Planet. He is known for his concept albums, and theatrical live performance that featured the “execution of Alice Cooper” every night — usually portrayed as death by guillotine. He’s left such an impact on the music world and would eventually become a massive influence on almost all sub-genre of metal.
As Adam Sandler reminded us in his “The Chanukah Song,” Chanukah is the Festival of Lights that lasts for eight crazy nights. This year’s Chanukah festivities began last night and in celebration, Neil Diamond has released a video of his version of Sandler’s holiday favorite.
Check out the animated music video for Diamond’s version of “The Chanukah Song” embedded here below.
Let’s face it, “The Chanukah Song,”was really a Neil Diamond song from the beginning, I’m surprised it took this long for Diamond to figure it out. The cover tune was part of Diamond’s recent holiday album A Cherry Cherry Christmas, which also includes mainly Christmas classics like “White Christmas,” “Winter Wonderland,” and “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.”
