If you dig Alice Cooper, check out his bass player’s band
Say you’re a fan of Alice Cooper? Then meet Beasto Blanco, the band fronted by Alice Cooper bass player Chuck Garric. The group dropped their debut album, “Live Fast, Die Loud,” back in 2013, and now, they’re getting ready to release a new, self-titled set on Nov. 25.
The first single off the album, “Feed My Frankenstein,” is a cover of the Alice Cooper song and even has Cooper’s daughter on vocals. The song is posted on the band’s YouTube page.
The cover has the Cooper stamp of approval.
“I’ve been performing that song with Alice Cooper for years,” Garric said in a statement. “I talked to Alice and said ‘I’m thinking about covering ‘Feed My Frankenstein’ on the Beasto Blanco record.’ Alice responded with ‘I think that would be a great idea. I think you guys will really knock it out of the ballpark.’”
Beasto Blanco will hit the road on a 2016 fall and 2017 winter North American tour beginning in November. They’ll also appear on the 2017 Monsters of Rock Cruise in February. Find tour dates on the band’s official website.
