Michael Bruce was the original guitarist with the Alice Cooper group. A quarter of a centuiry after the band split, with Bruce well into his solo career, he flew to Iceland. An unnamed internet pundit tells what happened next: Michael Bruce performs 12 songs he wrote and co-wrote with Alice Cooper. Bruce, Dunaway and Smith would go on to form the short-lived band Billion Dollar Babies, producing one album – Battle Axe – in 1977. Michael Bruce was the original guitarist with the Alice Cooper group.

In 1972 Randy Brecker, Michael Brecker and Barry Rogers (Chris!) were the hornsection on the track "Hello It's Me" by Todd Rundgren. Mix Online has an article on the recording process and arrangement. Mrs. Seaman’s Sound Band played in the Bloomington area, spring 1968 rally for US Presidential candidate Eugene McCarthy in Dunn Meadow. A big thank you to Randy Sandke who provided the photo and to David Demsey (thanks Dave!!!) from the Michael Brecker archive. A little help please - I wrote these transcriptions in January of 1982. I have no idea what they were from. Brecker is my guess with Chick or Hal Galper or Mel Lewis or Jack Wilkins? Showing first page of each here.

The main focus of the original Alice Cooper band was understandably the group's shock rock singer Alice Cooper. But it was the group's t, Michael Bruce, who was the main musical force behind the group, co-writing the majority of their tracks. Bruce and his ex-Cooper bandmates kept a low profile afterward, as several attempts at possibly writing for and/or rejoining Alice proved unfruitful. In 1983, Bruce issued another obscure solo release in Europe only, Rock Rolls On, and by the dawn of the '90s was playing out live again with such East Coast bands as the Josiah/Bruce Band and a new version of the Billion Dollar Babies. A second printing of the No More Mr. Nice Guy autobiography was issued too, with a new cover and an added chapter. In My Own Way: The Complete Sessions, an expanded two-disc reissue of Bruce's solo debut, was released in 2002.
