I'm afraid Alice Cooper managed to make me wince on a regular basis in the 80s. He had a spell of releasing albums like 'Flush The Fashion', Special Forces' and 'Zipper Catches Skin' that each contained two really good songs and the rest just full of silly, pop nursery rhyme-like stuff. And not in a good, twisted way, either.


...And then there was the Muppets Show appearance. I sat there watching it on a sunday evening with some members of my family. And remember how embarrassed I felt, still. This figure who helped subvert popular rock music into something a bit unsavoury and dark, singing with Miss Piggy!
