The founder of his self-titled band and Hollywood Vampires, Alice Cooper, was the latest interview guest of 95.5 KLOS last week, and the legendary star talked about one of his band’s most iconic moments as well as his thoughts on his third studio album ‘Love It To Death.’
As you may already know, ‘Love It To Death’ was one of the most successful albums of the history of Alice Cooper and it was released back in 1971. The album features 13 never-released-before tracks, and its best-known track ‘I’m Eighteen’ was released a year before recording the whole album.
In his latest interview with KLOS, Alice was asked what he thinks about the ‘Love It To Death’ album and its highly-anticipated song ‘I’m Eighteen.’ Alice admitted that the song was like a punk anthem and after the first time he listened to his own song, he said, ‘Yeah, this is the future.’
Here is what Alice Cooper said:
“You have to remember, back then if you got in the Top 40, you were up against The Beatles, Led Zeppelin – everybody.
It was really hard to get a song in that slot because the slots were all taken – Motown, you know, you were up against Simon & Garfunkel, all these guys, and then here comes this song ‘I’m Eighteen,’ which is kind of like a punk anthem.
And it seemed to fit right in. This was what was going to happen sooner or later, and she was the one. I listened to it, and, ‘Oh yeah, this is the future.’ So we got that play, and then the song became a hit after that.”
