Alice Cooper said he’d want to front Foo Fighters in not for his own band in a new Rock 100.5 interview.
“I think probably the Foo Fighters. Only because they’re exactly… 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 went on to praise the musicianship in Foo Fighters, saying: “First of all, they’ve got the two best drummers. People keep forgetting that Dave Grohl…
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.”
