New York, NY (September 30, 2008)—Alice Cooper, appearing on The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson last night, was the victim, yet again, of corporate meddling in his rock’n’roll. It’s called censorship and Cooper, currently promoting his Along Came A Spider (SPV) album, has met this particular beast numerous times during his 40-year career.

The album tells the story of a serial killer and as part of the song, Alice was going to re-enact a piece of his video by picking a female victim from the audience to choke with a silk scarf during the band’s live performance of “Vengeance is Mine”. (Both the album version of the song and the video feature ex-Guns ‘n’ Roses guitarist Slash.) What viewers saw was a truncated version of what actually happened. Unfortunately, the “murder” of one of his victims was just too much for CBS-TV’s censors (although Ferguson loved it) and, as such, his request was denied.

In 1975, Alice Cooper starred in an ABC special Welcome To My Nightmare starring Vincent Price, which also caused the ABC censors to cut out all the violence that had been included in the originally delivered film.

The uncensored version of the new 3-song video including “Vengeance is Mine” can be seen on MySpace.com/AlongCameAVideo as well as YouTube.com/SPV and Imeem.com/AliceCooper starting Wednesday, October 1st.

I'm guessing he won't be invited to do the Super Bowl half-time show
any time soon ...
