Various Artists – Humanary Stew – A Tribute To Alice Cooper (1998)

FrontCover1On this album, compiled by former Meat Loaf sideman and one-time Cooper touring guitarist Bob Kulick, members of metal’s biggest bands pay tribute to the artist formerly known as Vincent Furnier. New life is breathed into Cooper’s classic tunes as hardheads such as Alice in Chains ‘ Mike Inez, the Who’s Roger Daltry, Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson, and Slash rework (and add their own distinctive licks to) “No More Mr. Nice Guy,” “Billion Dollar Babies,” and the anthem for graduating seniors everywhere, “Schools Out.” The most unexpected contribution, however, comes from former Deep Purple bassist Glen Hughes, who after spending most of the ’90s off the radar screen, wrings out a wickedly dramatic version of “Only Women Bleed,” Cooper’s dark paean to feminism.
