A ROCK legend who has played at Wembley for each of the last five decades was immortalised at the venue.
Alice Cooper, who performed his first ever gig in Britain at Wembley in the early 1970s, was inducted in the Square of Fame at Wembley Arena on Tuesday.
The Schools Out and Poison singer said Wembley was where his music career all began as he prepared to return for a Halloween show on Sunday.
The 64-year-old told the Observer: This is really where it started. Wembley is the place we played first in England. They had just tried to ban us so everyone wanted to come and see us and the place was a sell out. Everything people had heard had been exaggerated so there were so many urban legends about the show but we didnt disappoint.
Although he has a history of shocking audiences, Alice Cooper said he believes that is a lot harder these days.
Because of the internet you cant shock anyone any more, they have seen it all, he said. Lady Gaga entertains us but she doesnt shock us.
The details of Sundays show are top secret but Alice revealed there would be tributes to members of his drinking society the Hollywood Vampires, a group of famous male rock stars in the 1970s.
The band has never played cover versions before but songs from former members, which include Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon, will be played.
The Christian rock legend, who is a keen golfer, added: London has always been very lovely to Alice Cooper and we feel the same way. I spend more time over here than I do in New York.
Alice Cooper will be performing a Halloween Night of Fear concert at Wembley Arena on Sunday October 28 and fans are encouraged to dress up.
The best costumes win cash prizes.
