Produced by Bob Ezrin, "Paranormal" was immediately saluted as a classic album, strong of the collaboration with iconic guests such as ZZ TOP's Billy Gibbons, U2's Larry Mullen and DEEP PURPLE's Roger Glover.
Cooper, who turned 70 in February, said in a 2017 interview that he has no plans to retire from touring. "The live show is something I'll never give up," he said. "To me, the lyrics to the songs are the script to what's going to happen on stage. If you sing 'Welcome To My Nightmare', you have to give the fans something. There are places where you have to kill the ballerina, you know. That's how I design the show. It's all about the lyrics."
