Nikki Sixx Names Alice Cooper’s Timeless Masterpiece
Nikki Sixx recently posted a tweet to express his admiration for one of Alice Cooper‘s albums. According to the bassist, this album by Cooper is still a masterpiece after all those years.
Besides being Mötley Crüe’s bassist, Nikki Sixx has also collaborated with various artists and bands, such as Sex Pistols’ Steve Jones, Meat Loaf, and Alice Cooper. The bassist lent his bass-playing skills to Alice Cooper on the song ‘Feed My Frankenstein,’ which appeared in Cooper’s album ‘Hey Stoopid.’ Besides, he co-wrote the song ‘Die For You’ along with Cooper and his Crüe bandmate Mick Mars.
The bassist has been a big fan of Alice Cooper since he was a kid and the 74-year-old musician significantly influenced his career. In one of his recent tweets, Sixx praised Cooper’s 1973 album ‘Billion Dollar Babies.’ According to the bassist, this album remains a successful music effort in today’s music scene. He also argued that ‘Billion Dollar Babies’ has been a timeless classic since the first day he bought the album as a kid.
Cooper released his sixth album, ‘Billion Dollar Babies,’ on February 25, 1973. It became the best-selling record of his catalog at the time of the release and became a chart-topper in both the US and the UK. The lyrics cover classic Cooper themes like horror, dental fear, necrophilia, and sexual harassment. Moreover, ‘Billion Dollar Babies’ is the longest studio album the band has released, with 40 minutes and 51 seconds of length.
Nikki Sixx’s tweet read:
“You know, ‘Billion Dollar Babies’ by Alice Cooper holds up musically today as well as the first day I bought it as a kid.“
