The Spiders - 1965 - Why Don't You Love Me EP

The Earwigs become The Spiders in 1965. Musically, the group was inspired by artists such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Kinks, and The Yardbirds. For the next year the band performed regularly around the Phoenix area with a huge black spider's web as their backdrop, the group's first stage prop. In 1965 they recorded their first single, "Why Don't You Love Me" (originally performed by The Blackwells), with Furnier learning the harmonica for that song. In 1966 "The Spiders" graduated from high school, and after North High School footballer, Michael Bruce, replaced John Tatum on rhythm guitar, the band scored a local #1 radio hit with "Don't Blow Your Mind," an original composition from their second single release. By 1967 the band had begun to make regular road trips to Los Angeles, California to play shows. In 1967 renamed themselves as The Nazz and released the single "Wonder Who's Lovin' Her Now," In 1968 upon learning that Todd Rundgren also had a band called Nazz, the band was again in need of another stage name. Believing that the group needed a gimmick to succeed, and that other bands were not exploiting the showmanship potential of the stage, Furnier chose "Alice Cooper" as the band's name. Vincent Furnier (Alice Cooper) - vocals, harmonica, Glen Buxton - lead guitar, Dennis Dunaway - bass, John Speer - drums and John Tatum - rhythm guitar ( Michael Bruce - rhythm guitar on track 03).
