Alice Cooper Says Calling Mumford & Sons A Rock Band Is Offensive To Rock And Roll
Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.13.2013



In an interview with Fuse (via NME) said that calling Mumford & Sons a rock band would be an offense to rock 'n' roll. He said that modern musicians were "afraid to be in a rock band" and thinks the current generation need to "quit eating vegetarian food" and "eat a steak" instead.

He said: "I just feel that this whole generation needs to all eat a steak. Maybe they just need to quit eating vegetarian food and get out there and get some blood pumping in their system. Rock 'n' roll is not about 'Happy happy happy, everything's okay. We're The Lumineers, let's clog dance.' Hey, there's a place for that. If I wanted to see a great clog dancing band, I'd see The Lumineers. Mumford And Sons are great at what they do. But it's not rock 'n' roll. Don't call it rock 'n' roll. It's an offense to rock 'n' roll. I get they want to be folk rock, and I guess they want to look like everybody else. I'm old school when it comes to if you're in a band, you're an outlaw. You don't play by those rules, you're a rock 'n' roll outlaw. It doesn't mean you have to be on drugs,, but when you get onstage you don't play the guitar up here, and it's not an acoustic guitar. You play the guitar down here. It doesn't come from your brain, it comes from your guts. It comes from your groin. It's sexual. It's tribal. Finally, I just went 'Okay you guys don't want to be rock bands, great. That's better for us'. There's more for Foo Fighters, there's more for Green Day, more for the bands that really are rock bands. I don't understand why everybody is so afraid to be in a rock band."

Cooper recently gave fans a chance to play a round of golf with him for $10,000. He released his last album, Welcome 2 My Nightmare in September 2011. Speaking of Mumford and Sons, they had a bagpiper with them when the headlined T in the Park last night.
