Alice Cooper Welcomed Back 2 U.K. Game Show ‘Nevermind the Buzzcocks’ As Guest Host
Theatrical rock legend Alice Cooper was a special guest on 'Nevermind the Buzzcocks' back in January, 2004. On Monday (Nov. 14), he returned to the music-themed U.K. comedic game show as a temporary host.
The episode starts off with a vintage 22-foot-long Cadillac hearse limousine pulling up in front of the studio, giving people the impression that Cooper is going to exit the car to make his grand entrance. The car then pulls away, revealing Cooper pedaling up on a bicycle and asking where he can park his ride.
The show, the seventh episode of the 25th series of the program, stars British comedians Phil Jupitus and Noel Fielding as team captains. Jupitus' team consisted of TV presenter Penny Smith and rapper Wretch 32, and Fielding's partners were singer-songwriter/actor Olly Murs and actor/comedian Rufus Hound.
'Nevermind the Buzzcocks' -- the title of which is a play off of the classic Sex Pistols album 'Nevermind the Sex Pistols' and the pop-punk band the Buzzcocks -- is currently without a permanent host, which explains why they're reaching out to a new celebrity each week.
Alice Cooper's most recent album, 'Welcome 2 My Nightmare,' came out Sept. 13. The album includes the Vince Gill-penned 'A Runaway Train,' on which the country star plays lead guitar. Check out our four-star review of 'My Nightmare' here.
