The Alice Cooper Interview
eclipsed author Michael Lorant has interviewed Alice Cooper nine times over the last three decades. These included telephone calls, but also conversations in which people sat opposite each other. In addition, there are several so-called Meet and Greet meetings on the fringes of concerts. The last time he met the veteran shock rocker was in Essen in April during the "Rock meets Classic" concert series.
The discovery of slowness
Mark Oliver Everett alias E is and remains a strange oddball. In his songs he finds the most poetic pictures for every situation in life, on stage he gives the babbling ramp sow. If you sit face to face with him, however, he pushes around as if he were ashamed of everything he does. He enjoys small compliments, sounds excited about what others say about his music, and rarely finds the right words to comment on his songs. Maybe he doesn't even need that on the new record. We've just finished his last CD "Wonderful, Glorious", when he takes "The Cautionary Tales Of Mark Oliver Everett" to the next big blow.
The last Eels album "Wonderful, Glorious" isn't quite dry yet, so the workaholic E is already adding the next album. "The Cautionary Tales Of Mark Oliver Everett" is the antithesis of the rough predecessor, calm, balladic, thoughtful, elaborately arranged. Not only the sound, but also the melody is reminiscent of late Beatles albums.
