Corky Laing formed Mountain in the late '60s with Felix Pappalardi, Leslie West, and Steve Knight. He also performed in the Mountain off-shoot, West, Bruce and Laing, which was essentially Mountain with Jack Bruce sitting-in for Pappalardi. He also recorded as the group Cork, with Eric Schenkman of The Spin Doctors and Noel Redding.
One of the memorable pop events from 1968 remains the album debut of Philadelphia's power pop sensation, The NAZZ, Simply called NAZZ. The album was supported by the classic double-sided single release of "Hello It's Me" and "Open My Eyes." These songs, as well as those from the entire catalog of NAZZ classics, sound as undated and cutting edge as they did when they were first released. The band released three excellent albums and are considered rock classics by anyone's standards. Shindig Magazine's readers voted NAZZ one of the top 100 cult bands. Both musically and fashion wise, NAZZ were light years ahead of most American bands from that period.
From 1964 to 1976, as the founding member of the group known as Alice Cooper, Dennis Dunaway collaborated on the music and theatrical staging that pioneered the most elaborate of arena rock productions. When "School's Out" became the biggest selling single in the history of Warner Brothers Records, and the Billion Dollar Babies album hit #1 on the charts in Britain and America, the original Alice Cooper group went on to sell more than twenty five million records worldwide. Dennis's signature bass lines that dominated the original Alice Cooper albums are now a driving force in The Dennis Dunaway PROJECT.
