Re: Alice Cooper or Frank Zappa

Impossible for me to answer that.

And without Frank there would be no Alice Cooper.

But I love them both.

Alice is a great entertainer but Frank was a great entertainer and a musical genius. Frank by a mile.

Re: Alice Cooper or Frank Zappa

I enjoy Alice Cooper a lot but he's not in the same league as Frank Zappa. Frank Zappa was a musical genius. As was mentioned before FZ blazed the trail that Alice Cooper followed. FZ without a doubt.

Re: Alice Cooper or Frank Zappa

I like both plenty, but prefer Sweet Uncle Alice in the long run.

I'm a gambler
And I'm a runner
But you knew that
When you layed down

I'm a picture of
Ugly stories
I'm a killer and
I'm a clown

Step into the street by sundown
Step into your last goodbye
You're a target just by living
Twenty dollars will make you die

I wear lace
And I wear black leather
My hands are lightning
Upon my gun

My shots are clean
And my, my shots are final
My shots are deadly
And when it's done

You're as stiff as my smoking barrel
You're as dead as a desert night
You're a notch
And I'm a legend
You're at peace
And I must hide

Tell me where the hell I'm going
Let my bones fall in the dust
Can't you hear that ghost that's calling?
As my Colt begins to rust
In the dust

I'm a killer
I'm a clown
I'm a priest
That's gone to town

Re: Alice Cooper or Frank Zappa

Frank Zappa was an incredible talent who could never quite rise above satire and all-too-direct political commentary. He should have taken his own advice, "Shut up and play your guitar!", far more often.

Alice Cooper, despite all the image hype, really did put out a lot of really fine songs that have stood the test of time. So he-she-it gets my vote.

Re: Alice Cooper or Frank Zappa

I had to go with Alice. Zappa was immensely talented, possibly even a genius, but his ideas and taste were just too weird for me. He didn't go in musical directions that appealed to me. Cooper had a lot of fun songs.
