VIDEO: Alice Cooper at Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame induction


The rock world came together Monday night in New York to honor the music and talents of the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Class of 2011.

Alice Cooper, Neil Diamond, Dr. John, Darlene Love and Tom Waits were the five main performers being honored, along with Leon Russell in the “sideman” category.

Alice was inducted by Rob Zombie, who said, "Alice Cooper invented the rock show. Before Alice Cooper, there was no rock show."

The Alice Cooper Band played “I’m Eighteen” and “Under My Wheels,” before being joined by Zombie and a choir of kids from the Ronald McDonald House for “School's Out.”

Afterwards, an elated Alice spoke to FuseTV about the evening. “It feels like I graduated,” said Alice. “You look at the people who are in the Hall, and you realize that they voted on you. The very guys that you learned from voted for you, so that’s amazing.”
