Love Alice!!!!

My favorite album remains Love it to Death followed by Killer.  There's not a bad song on either album!!  The Ballad of Dwight Fry gives me chills every time I hear it.

TOTALLY! How it fades into Sun Arise.. Brilliant 1022.gif I really liked that you could hear Alice's influence's in the G'n'R and Smashing Pumpkins records.

Thanks for the post Tick!

I've never seen this before.

One of my favourite Coop tunes in one my favourite Coop eras.

Good to see Ryan Roxie play guitar on one of his first AC tours.

Cheers, you rock!

You can hear and see Alice's influence all over the rock/metal world, not just in those two bands. I now he got into the rock and roll hall of fame last year but I still think his huge influence over those two genres still doesn't get the respect it deserves.

The ultimate sell-out.

He went from being the voice and symbol of the disenfranchised youth of the early 70s, to singing with Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy on the Muppet Show, when he was not appearing on the Hollywood Squares.

I listen to his older stuff on a regular basis, but nothing that does not include his original band.

Happy birthday, Alice! Keep being awesome, and keep being the King of Shock Rock. 1022.gif

It's amazing to think that he's been doing this for forty years, isn't it? He just released Welcome 2 My Nightmare last year, and he's now 64. tongue.gif

Happy birthday indeed - I'm amazed the dude is only 64 though. I never went looking for the date, but looking at him, I figured he had to be pushing 70-75 at least. I'm surprised to learn he's 64.

(Not an insult - guys age differently, just look at William Shatner (80) vs. Clint Eastwood (81)!)

I would think Led Zeppelin and The Who were bigger bands in the early 70s...
The AC band was probably the biggest U.S. band in 71~74...? (The Doors were done and Kiss hadn't reached that #1 status yet)...

Just because people want you to appear everywhere does not mean you have to go against everything you stood for previously, and sell out to make the industry happy. Everyone has a price, and Alice got his price (no pun... Vincent Price, hahaha).

Kiss, for sure = a marketing campaign that just so happens to play music. Agreed 100%.

Like I said above, I have a ton of respect for the first couple of albums, but once his band deserted him because Alice wanted to go all Hollywood, I gave up on him too.

All that said, **HUGE** kudos to him for getting and staying sober all these years.

I hear ya, i just never looked at Alice as a sell out. Buddy Rich was on the Muppet Show also , he was not a sell out.  I just think the 70's were more open to that kind of thing.

I've never seen Alice as a sell out, either.

Alice Cooper didn't compromise his music for sales. He didn't sell out.

Also the muppet show was the cool thing to do back then..

This is a gift for my Spanish teacher, who's a huge Alice Cooper fan. She's been to eleven concerts since 1976. Since she asked me to go back to the original Welcome to My Nightmare days, that's what I did. cool.gif

The quote in the upper right hand corner says, "School's in." Alice told my teacher that when she met him at a Meet and Greet in 2007. She told Alice about her job as a teacher, to which Alice said, "Well, tell your students, 'School's out.'" School was actually about to start a few days later, so he corrected himself: "School's in." laugh.gif

There's just something about Alice wearing a top hat. wink.gif

This is my first time drawing Alice, so I'm quite happy with it. tongue.gif
