soundsof71:

Donovan and Alice Cooper, working on the track “Billion Dollar Babies,” 1972.

I was making Cosmic Wheels with Mickie Most at Morgan Studios in 1972. Alice Cooper was downstairs making an album; I didn’t know who he was. Word came up that a band was downstairs and that they would love to meet me. 

Alice introduced himself and he played me the track, and it had this huge sound to it. Alice said, “Would you like to try a vocal?” I thought he meant a background vocal. I said, “It is very hard to climb on top of those guitars. I am going to have to do a falsetto.” Alice told me to have a go at it. I went in and sang this piercing falsetto and sang, “Biiillllion dollllar babbbbieeeees.” Alice said, “That’s it man, let’s record.” I think I did about half the vocals on that song.

The rest of the interview here.

bonzobreakbeat:

The last, blushing, ecstatic throes of summer fell that August like an anvil - every day sweltering but cooler than the one before it, the sun burning and turning but never quite as high in the sky as it had seemed to be all through July. Robert and John drank their weight in cheap cider at the pub and over again, listening to the local bands, playing when their own groups got it together enough.
