Have you ever read Michael Bruce’s No More Mr Nice Guy?
Caught socially in between (rather violent) cowboy rednecks and the Mexican crowd out in Arizona, groups which shared only a mutual loathing for the clothing styles they preferred as nascent rockers — too glam, you know, for real men!, they also developed an interest in a fascinating pastime… i.e., “WHY WALTZ…”
Nah, I’m not surprised. He’s the exception to the rule. I have his solo album, a Billion Dollar Babies box set — yeah, there is one, and a CD of him doing Alice Cooper stuff in Iceland where he looks like a hybrid between a linebacker and Johnny Cash with long hair. You should see some of the live photos of BDB, there aren’t many — they even had a ridiculous part of the show where they battled each other like gladiators, predating the Manowar thing by about half a decade.
