My random, desktop image of the day was this one of Nita Strauss, Alice Cooper’s guitarist this past summer at Copenhell.

The Hollywood Vampires are playing at Britt Festivals on 7/23/16. I will miss the show as I’m still in Denmark, but I did get to catch part of the show at Copenhell a few weeks ago. Alice Cooper did a portion of the set as part of his own. I thought it was excellent.

Happy birthday to Vincent Damon Furnier today

Alice Cooper has turned over members of his band over the past 40+ years like few others. The guitarist to the far right in the above photo is Steve Hunter, who was one (of many) on guitar for perhaps Alice’s best record, “Billion Dollar Babies.”

Alice Cooper

When I first saw Alice Cooper live, back in 1987, I wasn’t very familiar with his music. Sure I had heard “I’m Eighteen” and “School’s Out” on the radio growing up, but I didn’t own any of his albums. It was beginning in 1987 that I really got into his early material. I even ended up enjoying his early 80s material (which most people don’t) like “Special Forces,” “Dada,” and “Zipper Catches Skin” (although I haven’t heard them in ages now as they only recently came out on CD). However, nothing he has recorded after 1983 has been the least bit interesting to me.

I barely stomached “Brutal Planet,” “Hey Stoopid,” and “I’ll Bite Your Face Off” at GRF, but after “Cold Ethyl” I sensed a run on annoying songs would be coming so I went to a different stage to watch Marduk instead. I, therefore, missed a bunch of (stupid IMO) songs before coming back out (as the building Marduk was playing in was far too hot to stay for their whole set) for “I Love the Dead,” “School’s Out,” and “Elected.” Maybe I’m the only one who would prefer “Steven,” “Ballad Of Dwight Fry,” and “Black Juju” over “Feed My Frankenstein,” “Poison,” and “Hey Stoopid,” but that’s just my taste.
