Alice Cooper, “Desperado”

Great song! From the little known album Killer from 1971. Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols was quoted as saying that Killer was the best rock and roll album ever made. This music was very radical at the time and few people listened to it. It was “outsider music” like early punk.

Desperado was written about Jim Morrison. This album was produced by Bob Ezrin, one of the greatest producers ever.

    Morrison was a friend of Cooper’s and an inspiration to him. Like Iggy Pop there weren’t many people back in the late 60’s to show artists like Alice “the way”.
