Rock legend Alice Cooper has recently claimed rock ‘n’ roll has become “limp” and that most bands haven’t got a chance to live up to the standard set by US rockers Mötley Crüe.
In fact, Alice has spoken of how he thinks modern rock ‘n’ roll is “limp”.
The shock Rocker has aired his views of the modern day rock industry and admitted he thinks the are very few bands band out there “killing it” like Mötley Crüe.[image type=”rounded” float=”left” src=”https:rockmyworld.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/alice-cooper-014.jpg” alt=”Alice Cooper”]
Alice said: “Our generation of bands wrote songs which will appeal to kids aged 16, 30 years from now, who will still go, ‘Oh yeah, that’s me’. The state of rock and roll right now is so limp. There’s not a lot of rock and roll bands out there, so that’s why you see bands like Mötley Crüe still killing it.”
Alice, who recently turned 67 has been invited to support the “Dr Feelgood” hitmakers Mötley Crüe on their last ever European tour, and by the looks of it he’s having the time of his life.
Speaking to the press Alice said, “We’ve known Mötley for years and never played with them. So when they said do you want to send us off, I said, absolutely. We are two bands that really bring it every night. It’s good for the audience because there is not a lot of rock ‘n’ roll around anymore: Not real rock or hard rock. With these two bands we want these kids to be exhausted by the end of the show. ”
This tour is slowly but surely winding down for Mötley Crüe – who will split up after a show in Los Angeles on New Year’s Eve (31.12.15) – But the “school’s out” hitmaker joked: “We are booked in for the next century.”
