ALICE COOPER'S -----...that 3 Minute Musical Boundary......

If I were to take a young band, I would have them listen to four people:

Burt Bacharach, Paul McCartney, Brian Wilson and Paul Simon, or maybe Laura Nyro.

Listen to the construction of those songs. I mean, the Beatles - so simple, but I get everything they're saying to me.

When I hear these new bands, I don't get it.

And it's because they don't know how to tell a story within those musical boundaries.

That three-minute musical boundary.

Alice Cooper
