QMI Agency: That's my cue to ask what "Welcome 2 My Nightmare" is all about.
Alice Cooper: Basically, we wondered, what would happen if Alice had another nightmare 30 years after the last one. I had contacted Bob (Ezrin) about producing a different album — I wanted to finish "Along Came A Spider" — but we got to talking about "Nightmare", and we just immediately started writing songs. Pretty soon Bob said, "We have to do Part 2."I've tried to get as many people from that album back. I got Steve Hunter, who played all the solos. Dick Wagner and I wrote some songs. Dennis, Neal and Mike are on it. Then I added a bunch of people you would never expect, like Vince Gill, who plays lead on two songs. He's the Jeff Beck of country. He made my head spin.
