When bassist Dennis Dunaway was still in school, he formed a band with his friend Vincent Furnier on vocals. That band became Alice Cooper and went on to release a legendary string of hits including "I'm Eighteen" and "School's Out", in the process influencing several generations of upcoming musicians. In 1975 Furnier took the Alice Cooper name and stage persona for his own and struck out on a solo career, effectively ending the group. Dennis Dunaway continued on with bands like Billion Dollar Babies and Dead Ringer before a battle with Crohn's diseae sidelined him. In recent years Dunaway has returned to performing and recording, and he joined us on Long Live Rock to discuss his time with Alice Cooper, his upcoming project with a new band called 5th Avenue Vampires (with guitarist Richie Scarlet), and another upcoming project with Joe and Albert Bouchard from Blue Oyster Cult called Blue Coupe. He also let us preview two new tracks from 5th Avenue Vampires, "Fear Me" and "She'll Lie".
