News Item : Alice Featured on Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock
For the forthcoming Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, Alice Cooper and The Runaways each re-recorded one of their classic songs for inclusion in the video game. The sessions breathed new life into some famous collaborations.
Alice Cooper brought in famed collaborator/producer Bob Ezrin to produce the new version of “No More Mr. Nice Guy,” a Cooper classic that Ezrin originally produced. “The new audience listening to the classic songs of today, like ‘No More Mr. Nice Guy,’ will hopefully be inspired to write the classic songs of tomorrow,” Cooper said.
‘No More Mr. Nice Guy’ is one of those songs that, it was me screaming back at the public,” he continued. “At the time I was guilty of every single thing that was wrong with America. And then I said, ‘OK, that does it. No more Mr. Nice Guy. The gloves are off.’ And they said, ‘You mean you were being a nice guy?’ And I said, ‘Yeah. I can get a lot worse.’ And it ended up being one of those songs everyone connected to.”
This wasn’t the only project Cooper and Ezrin have been working on. They also have teamed up to make a sequel to 1975’s Welcome to My Nightmare.
Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock will be released September 28 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii.
