Alice Cooper is a bad, bad man
I'm not worthy! I'm not worthy! I'm not worthy!
Dudes....Although i only saw the show in bits & pieces....I have to say....what i saw of Alice Cooper last night at the Riverside was totally insane
Alice ROCKED a lot harder than i thought he would (i was thinking it would be like a classic rock show & it was basically an all out metal show instead)
Alice started the show with a sillouhette of himself twirling his baton behind a giant curtain. Shortly thereafter a sillouhette of a 2nd Alice Cooper appeared & strangled the first Alice Cooper. The curtain dropped & revealed real Alice Cooper with the lifeless fake Alice Cooper laying at his feet.....yeah....it was that kinda night.....
Other antics throughout the night included a group of hooded men picking up fake Alice Cooper and putting him on a stretcher but not before another ass-whooping from real Alice Cooper, also a (fake?) baby getting stabbed through the heart, the dancing dead girl for "only women bleed" and Alice hanging himself onstage.
For the last song, he played "Elected" and Alice's helper guys ended the set carrying around signs that said "Alice 4 President", "He Doesn't Care", "A troubled man for troubled times!"
according to the tour manager, Toby, who i settled the show with (who had also been on the road w/Alice since the 70s), Alice will likely be back again in 08 for a Halloween show..... I can't freakin' wait....
