B-Sides: Alice Cooper’s Identity Crisis

Post Thumb:


This weekend’s B-Sides is dedicated to the memory of the late Alice Cooper. No, the horror rocker isn’t actually dead, but he was killed last weekend when he got punted to death in Syfy’s Bigfoot. Not the first time he was mauled on film by a hairy beast.

That last time was in the 1984 Spanish werewolf flick Monster Dog. As rock star Vincent Raven returning to his hometown to film a new music video, Alice Cooper found himself nose-to-snout with a lupine nightmare with a taste for Eighties musicians.

The music video is for a song titled “Identity Crisis” Cooper composed exclusively for Monster Dog. The clip you are about to see is from the music video shoot that opens the film.

For over 15 years “Identity Crisis” was only available in the form you are about to see and heard later on playing again over the closing credits of Monster Dog. The Life and Crimes of Alice Cooper 4-CD box set was the first time the tune ever appeared on any of his albums.
