Talking The Ballad of Alice Cooper

So... what exactly is this song about? I've seen the lyrics for it, (here on dc) but i've never heard it. Was it ever recorded? Or even played? And did Alice Cooper himself co-write it? I recently started listening to AC, and i would like to know more about him and how he ties into Bon Jovi's career. Any info?

Havenīt seen the lyrics so I donīt know if a longer version exist, but the clip Iīve heard, was just Jon playing small piece of it in some radio interview. Around the release of Blaze of Glory, if I remember right.

Yup - that's the only clip that I have too - it's very short.

I've got what I think is the same clip too, but I always thought it was a studio recording from when Jon and Richie worked on Trash, because I'm sure Alice is the one laughing throughout it.

The only clip I know of definitely came from an interview Jon did during Blaze. I believe it was Rockline. Though it may have been Hitline.

It was a Rockline interview from 1990. Someone kindly uploaded not so long ago. I remember Jon doing a VERY good impression of Alice whilst singing it!

Is it Alice? It sounds something like Richie...
