Alice Cooper Names Three Bands Every Young Musician Should Hear

Via UltimateClassicRock

Alice Cooper named the three bands he believes every young musician should listen to so they can take their raw talent and turn it into powerful art.

He’s a judge on the No Cover show, where musicians are evaluated on their original songs, rather than being able to sing material written by others.

“I’m always saying everything revolves around how good the song is,” Cooper told LA Weekly in a recent interview. “You know, I don’t care how exciting you are up there. … Spend your time listening to the Beatles. I tell young bands all the time: ‘I want you to listen to the Beatles, the Beach Boys and the 4 Seasons. They wrote perfect songs, right? Their records were perfect.”
