No More Mr. Nice Guy
Mike Pachelli is back to instruct you on the guitar parts to “No More Mr. Nice Guy” by Alice Cooper, which was released in 1973 on the album Billion Dollar Babies.

Alice Cooper was first signed to Frank Zappa’s record label “Straight Records” and did three albums on that label. It was the 3rd album, *Love it to Death* that garnished them national attention, prompting Warner Brothers to buy his contract and re-release Love it to Death.

Alice’s shock rock persona was inspired by the Bette Davis film What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? because of her disgusting caked makeup smeared across her face and underneath her eyes with deep, dark, black eyeliner. Alice wanted to be different than the bearded, denim-clad hippie bands of the time, and instead of becoming a rock hero, he became a rock villain.

Mike Pachelli
    Mike Pachelli started playing guitar as a youngster in his hometown of Youngstown, Ohio. His earliest influence was Wes Montgomery who Mike says, "first opened my ears to the possibilities on guitar." Pachelli studied classical guitar at YSU and then moved to New York City to study bebop with guitar luminaries Joe Pass and Pat Martino. Mike's guitar style is an amalgamation of blues, jazz, rock, and neo-classical. He has a wealth of musical experience gained thru years of night clubs, concert halls, and recording studios. He's performed all over the U.S. and Europe with some of the most eclectic jazz, blues, pop and rock musicians including Brother Jack McDuff, Albert King, Les & Larry Elgart, Michael Sembello, Crystal Gayle, Barbara Mandrell, Jeanne Mas, Phil Keaggy, Frank Stallone (to name a few) and has done classical symphony concerts touring with Ferrante and Teicher.
