Love Alice Cooper. Like the Spiders record, too, but won't be buyin' a real one in my lifetime.
Alice Cooper was the 1st band that my fiancee & I really clicked on, but since I'm the nerd, I only had the 1st 2. She had everything else after that up 'til Flush The Fashion. Played Killer every day for a month once when I got my hands on her stuff.
Used to spend a lot of time in his restaurant in Cleveland before Indians games. He sold it, though. There was some wildly cool pictures in there such as one with Dali, one with Sinatra, one of him goofing around behind Cher who was standing at the podium of some award show, & one of him, Liza Minelli, & Tina Turner around a hanging studio mic. He's holding a Budweiser in that one.
When we saw him in the summer of 2006, the fiancee got one of the roadies to give her a setlist. He did 5 tracks from Killer during that show. Coolest thing might've been 10 yo girl we met who was sitting next to us with her family on the lawn. Her family went on a cruise & she left all of her boyband CDs at home, forcing her to listen to her dad's Alice Cooper CDs. She flipped.
He owns a home on Champions Golf Club in Columbus.
