Alice Cooper completes work on sequel to legendary Welcome To My Nightmare album.

Alice Cooper has announced that he and his band have completed work on a sequel to his most famous work entitled Welcome 2 My Nightmare. Produced by Bob Ezrin (Kiss, Pink Floyd) who also produced the original the album promises to be special. In addition to writing 13 new songs for the concept album, Alice was able to reunite with three of his original band mates: bassist Dennis Dunaway, drummer Neal Smith and guitarist Michael Bruce who played on three of the tracks (Glen Buxton is not involved).

As Alice told in an interview last fall “When I listen to the first “Nightmare”, I've got all kinds of things going on,” There's a lot of hard rock on it, but it'll go way off in a weird direction in one song and then way off in another song. So where Welcome To My Nightmare left off, this one starts right up. When it comes out it'll have an entire new production around it, probably as big as the original “Nightmare” show. It'll be a big moment in my career.”

No stranger to big moments Cooper has been making hit records and sold out tours for over forty years. Last fall they went out on the “Gruesome Twosome Tour” with Rob Zombie who they outperformed when I saw the tour. Alice Cooper will be inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame this year after what has been a longtime, grievous oversight (just as many hard rock and metal bands have been passed over).
