During a new interview with Atlanta’s Rock 100.5 radio station, Alice Cooper revealed that he would consider joining FOO FIGHTERS.
Asked which band he’d like to front, Alice said: “I think probably the FOO FIGHTERS… When they do my songs, they do it exactly like the band. I mean, it’s amazing. I’ve done a bunch of things with the FOO FIGHTERS, and a lot of their influence was Alice Cooper.”
“The guys in the band, they said they learned how to play listening to our early albums. So when I go up on stage with the FOO FIGHTERS, they nail my songs — they do ’em exactly the way they should be done. So I’d probably be in that band, if they ever needed a really sick lead singer.”
He continued: “First of all, they’ve got the two best drummers… The first time I saw NIRVANA, I looked right past the first two guys, and I said, ‘Who’s this drummer?’ ‘Cause he was really good; he stuck out.”
“And I said, ‘If that band ever breaks up, I’m going for that drummer’… I went up and did a couple of songs with [FOO FIGHTERS drummer Taylor Hawkins‘s] band also. And he is really something. Hawkins is the Energizer bunny.”
