Music For Monday: Alice Cooper, ‘Under My Wheels’ (1971)

'The telephone is ringin'...you got me on the run..." (Alice Cooper, 'Under My Wheels,' 1971)

‘The telephone is ringin’…you got me on the run…” (Alice Cooper, ‘Under My Wheels,’ 1971)

Hand-in-hand with our heartwarming Billboard magazine holiday ad, we have Alice Cooper performing on German TV in late ’71 or early ’72.

Alice serenades us with “Under My Wheels,” the lead-off single from the L.P., Killer. It’s a good one with the band playing live, pedal most certainly to-the-metal. Let it roll over you.
