From my blog on my band's website:

http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=255178047&blogID=424966940

OK, I'm going to step out of my usual mode and write about another artist. People who know me know that I am a huge Alice Cooper fan...in fact it's almost a sickness. Well, as a result everyone makes fun of me, which is cool I can take it. I always chalk it up to people not knowing what the hell they are talking about...

Coop played last night (Saturday night 8-16) at the Stir Concert Cove...and I gotta say, the man still has it big time. For those of you who have never seen him, you are missing out on a rock legend who defines what a rock SHOW is. Yes, I've seen other "great" musicians, like Eric "I'm one of the greatest guitar players ever but I'm boring as all hell to watch" Clapton. I mean, why bother seeing a band live, when really all you are getting is what you could get if you bought the live CD...do people like to pay 80.00 for a ticket just to watch some dude sit in a chair and jam some great blues for 2 friggin' hours? Yaaaawn...wake me up when that shit is over...

No, if you want a SHOW, you go where the actual showmen are, and Alice Cooper is tops in that field, even at the age of 50 something. He came right out and punched the crowd in the face with some classic Coop, some obscure (but totally awesome) Coop, some new stuff off the last few albums. All the while, he has some fantastic musicians that play with him now, including Eric Singer on drums, who had a drum solo that was beyond wicked. Coop pulled out all the stops, and gave a classic show, culminating in his execution by hanging...he always gets executed somehow at the end, and it's always a high grade stunt. Then the old genius came out and played 3 songs for an encore, finishing up the night with a kick ass version of Elected, complete with guys dressed up as Obama, McCain and Bush all duking it out on stage. After kicking them off the stage, the Alice Cooper for President signs came out, including the slogan "A troubled man for troubled times". Awesome.

It was a fantastic combo of horror, action, and comedy that is typical of the Coop. If you don't dig the Coop, then you don't understand showmanship and are probably the type who digs watching a bunch of stoned out musicians jam for 2 hours. What the hell ever...

...give me a show. That's what I expected. The man, the legend, Alice Cooper, delivered as always.

Rock on!

Different strokes indeed. I just get so much crap for being a Coop fan, but what can I say, I need a SHOW. I can't stand sitting there listening for 2 hours...short attention span I guess.

I have all the respect in the world for the Claptons of the world and what not, I just think a rock concert should hit more senses than just your ears.

If I ever get down to Phoenix, I'm going to try to meet him at his bar, Cooperstown. Apparently, he just pops in and hangs out with people from time to time. I'd love to have a long talk with him...to have him kick my ass at golf would be a total honor.

This was the 4th time I've seen him. I saw him down in KC in like 1999 with the Scorpions, but he was not the headliner (they were apparently switching every venue, so KC got to see Alice open) and it kinda sucked having Welcome to my Nightmare played while it was still light out. But musically they were awesome, so for a fan like me it was no problem.

This last show at the Stir is probably second best, next to the first time I saw him back in '86.

I remember watching a interview with Blackie Lawless from WASP once. His shows are theatrical much like Coopers to the point he would set his crotch on fire. Well one night something went wrong and the pyrotechnics he used on his cod piece melted all over his crotch and thighs. That night he mentioned to the rest of his band, "If we had better songs, I wouldn't have to do this." LMAO

I was blown away at some of the stuff he pulled out of the cellar:

Opened with the piano theme to "Steven", then went right into "It's Hot Tonight". I've never seen him play that one live. Then later he did "Halo of Flies"...just awesome.

Oh yeah, his wife and daughters dance in the show as well. What a trip. The family freak-show!!:D

When Alice played here, he played just about everything you'd want him to play. When he was finished I couldn't think of a single Cooper song that he skipped that I was wanting to hear, but it was a very long show.

His music is fantastic, and the guy sounds just as good as he ever did with a killer band. His performance was outstanding. Yes, it's theatrical, but it's also genuis. If you haven't seen it, you just don't know. Truly one of the best shows I've ever seen.

I saw these rock and roll bands on midnight special and they seemed a lot cooler to me. I had Led Zepplin and Jimi Hendrix too. I was way ahead of my fellow 8 year olds down in the belt buckle of the bible belt.

Please clean your plate, dear, The lord above can see ya
Don't you know people are starving in Korea?
Alcohol and razorblades and poison and needles
Kindergarten people, they used 'em they need 'em
The over- indulgent machines were their children
There wasn't a way down on earth here to cool 'em
'Cause they looked just like humans at Kresges and Woolworth
But decadent brains were at work to destroy
Brats in battalions were ruling the streets saying
"Generation Landslide close the gap between 'em"
And i laugh to myself every man and the ladies
Who never could see those billions dollar babies

Militant mothers, hiding in the basement
Using pots and pans as their shields and their helmets
Molotov milk bottles heaved from pink high-chairs
While mothers limp burned, with certificate papers
Dad gets allowance from his sonny the dealer
Who's pubic to the world, but involved in high finance
Sister's out 'til five doing banker's son's hours
But she owns a Maserati, that's a gift from his father
Stop at full speed at one hundred miles per hour
The Colgate invisible shield finally got 'em
And I laugh to myself every man and the ladies

Do any radio stations in your area play Alice's nightly radio show? IMHO he is a great radio guy. He tells real-life stories about everyone who was ever anyone in rock and roll, plays a wide variety of killer music and is funny as hell. In case you care here is the site for his radio show:

This is absolutely nuts-on correct! If you are a hard-core fan of the Coop or a newbie, his show does not disappoint. He played for 2 hours the other night, and really only played about 6 or 7 songs from the "newer" era (Trash to present.) Played nothing off of the early to mid 80's stuff (like Dada, zipper catches skin, FLush the fasion, Special Forces) which is probably because very few people unless you are a freak like me, even know those albums.

Seriously, if he's in your area and you have any inclining towards rock music, this is a MUST SEE show...

Yeah it was probably just fine back then.
Funny, I live not terribly far from 12th and Northern now in the old Central/Maryland district. I wouldn't call 12th and Northern a pit however it is pretty much the on ramp to the 51.

My favorite AC album is "From the Inside" - it's like Toto with Alice's gritty voice and twisted lyrics. In fact Steve Lukather co-wrote and played on a couple of tunes

--------------------------
Nurse Rozetta I won't let her
Catch me peering down her sweater
Fantasizing silk suspender on her thighs
Nurse Rozetta make me better
Secretly my eyes undress her
Let me feel your tongue depressor

I'm suddenly twice my size
My pants are all wet inside

Wow,you're the first person I've ever seen that has said that besides myself.What a great album and apparently one that was written during and based on his time in detox and some of the characters he met.

I love every song on it but The Quiet Room is probably my fav

In 1970 I was in the Army stationed in Korea. I had a killer stereo and was always blasting music in the barracks.

One day a new guy came up to me and said, have you ever heard of a band called Alice Cooper? I said no. He said, I'm from Detroit and was just home on leave and they are the biggest name in town.

Then he said, here's some pictures he took of the band. He then showed me about a dozen black and white photos of Alice Cooper playing at some club. I said, that's cool, maybe they'll make it big some day.

Yeah it was probably just fine back then.
Funny, I live not terribly far from 12th and Northern now in the old Central/Maryland district. I wouldn't call 12th and Northern a pit however it is pretty much the on ramp to the 51.

Wow,you're the first person I've ever seen that has said that besides myself.What a great album and apparently one that was written during and based on his time in detox and some of the characters he met.




I'm going to have to pick up that CD sometime.

I'll get back with you when i pick it up and listen to it. It won't be for a little while though. I rarely listen to music anymore except when i'm at work. Other then that i am an A.M. Junkie.

No offense taken, I live in a completely different neighborhood.
Ah La Mirada, just down the street from local watering hole The Four Kings.

I love every song on it but The Quiet Room is probably my fav

"They've got this place
where they been keeping me
and I just can't
just can't get these damn wrists to bleed"

Ditto that! I love that whole album..."Serious" is one of my favs:

All of my life was a laugh and a joke
and a drink and a smoke
and the I passed out on the floor...

again and again and again and again!!

or Millie and Billie...

or Jack knife Johnny...

and you can't forget "How you gonna see me now?"

That whole album is great...

Any Lace and Whiskey fans, or Muscle of Love?
