i was very surprised to find out that alice cooper is still performing, although the singer is at the ripe old age of 65.
it was not a very well promoted concert, and up until i got the call to work the show, i had not even heard about it.
it was poorly attended, and it was in a smaller size hockey arena miles away from the city.
it was a lot different from when i first attended cooper concerts as a fan in the 1970's.
when i first started working cooper shows, they were still booking the big shows at our best venues.
some of the kids working with me DID NOT KNOW WHO THE BAND WAS.
i was a bit shocked, but their memories of theatrical horror music went only as far back as marylin manson.
at 52, i should not feel so old smile

it was sad and ironic to listen to them close the show with the timeless(?) song ... eighteen.

it was weird and kind of sad, watching a 65 year old man singing about teenage angst.
speaking of teenage... they actually covered "generation" by the WHO.

the band was great.
the gags were awesome.
the singer was in great shape.

Well, I'm not who she is, but she looks OK for 65.

I dig Alice Cooper but I admit even I wasn't familiar with him until he released his single "poison" in '89. (I was 14 then.) Also, I loved his cameo in Wayne's World. WE'RE NOT WORTHY! WE'RE NOT WORTHY! WE'RE NOT WORTHY! LOL!

as a teen in the 1970's, alice cooper (a band, not a person) was the ultimate shock rock of our generation.
for the older generation, it was creepier than kiss.
it was all monster thriller horror theater,
with plenty of politically incorrectness,
provocative sexuality, necromancy, sorcery, latex gore,
and lots of bloody fake death and staged suicide stunts.
the outlandish and obviously impossible rumours about the singer, Vincent Furnier, alone were staggering,

he 'dies' a couple time per show.
all very carefully choreographed magic tricks,
but well executed.

all this and well written rock songs, too.


if you got some time and want to be entertained.

CHECK THIS OUT!

I remember hearing Alice Cooper when I was younger. My parents were more Rolling Stones and The Eagles than Alice Cooper. Yeah, I was one of those kids who listened to all kinds if music on AM radio and those old album rock FM stations. The 1989 "Trash" album was released when classic rock was at the peak of popularity, so I remember that it got a lot if attention. I was 17...and the song still reminds me of a fall afternoon.

What's funny is that a few years back my dad ran into 'Alice Cooper' at the Phoenix airport. They talked golf for a few minutes. Two middle-age guys talking 5 irons. WTF?

apparently, golf is all mr.furnier cares about when he is not in character.

school's out completely.



i had that album in 1973, with the little fold out desk and the panties and everything. it was cool. then i bought billion dollar babies. it was in the shape of a wallet, and it came with a big billion dollar bill. the old lps had some excellent designs and formats. the jacket art was half the product.
