Founding Alice Cooper bassist Dennis Dunaway and his wife, Cindy, are visiting Liverpool, U.K., this week, and while in The Beatles‘ hometown, the couple took the time to send out a positive message via a YouTube video as we all try to get through the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Dunaways shot a clip of themselves singing the Fab Four classic “All You Need Is Love” as part of the NJArts.com website’s recently launched Songs to See Us Through series.
Dennis and Cindy have been staying at the Hard Days Night Hotel’s John Lennon suite, which features framed photos of the late Beatle legend, as well as a white baby grand piano like the one Lennon played in the video for his classic song “Imagine.”
In the clip, Dunaway says, “We’ve got a song for the coronavirus situation that everybody’s in,” while his wife adds, “Or basically, just in general…This works for every day, every year.”
After singing a bit of “All You Need Is Love,” Cindy reminds us, “Don’t touch your face,” and Dennis adds, “And wash your hands.”
Dennis currently is playing in the all-star group Blue Coupe, which also features founding Blue Oyster Cult members Albert Bouchard and Joe Bouchard. The band released its third studio album, Eleven Even, in November. The group had been scheduled to take part in the Silja Rock Cruise in Sweden this week, but the event has been postponed until May 18.
You can check out a video of Blue Coupe’s full performance at the 2019 Sweden Rock Festival this past June on Joe Bouchard’s official YouTube channel. The band was joined at the gig by Alice Cooper touring guitarist Ryan Roxie.
