Alice Cooper Returns To Scene Of First UK Crime
Alice Cooper has been inducted into the Wembley Arena Square of Fame as he prepares to return to the scene of his first UK crime. His band made their first British appearance in Wembley in 1972, and faced an onslaught from public-decency campaigner Mary Whitehouse. When he performs at Wembley Arena on October 28 it'll continue a tradition of five decades of playing in the London location. Cooper tells: "This is really where it started - they had just tried to ban us so everyone wanted to see us and the place was a sellout. Everything people had heard was exaggerated, but we didn't disappoint." While he's keeping details of the show a secret, he says he'll perform covers of Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon songs. He performed classic track "School's Out" on the BBC's Later with Jools Holland at the weekend. View the clip below.
