BMI heavyweights the Alice Cooper Band, Dr. John, and Jac Holzman number prominently among the 2011 class of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees. The new members will be officially inducted March 14 at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in New York City. All first-time nominees, the BMI additions to the hallowed hall reflect the adventurous terrain tread by rock royalty.
Alice Cooper combined jaw-dropping theatrics and hardcore hooks to create a rock sub-genre whose rebellious spirit shaped 70s youth culture and the bands that it spawned. Cooper penned career-defining hits including “Eighteen,” “School's Out,” and “No More Mr. Nice Guy,” and was named BMI Pop Songwriter of the Year in 1977.
