Alice Cooper still has what it takes to rock
He's one of the most recognizable people in the world, a big-time rockstar who
inspired the likes of Kiss, Motley Crue and even Ke$ha. He's been in movies,
television shows, commercials and hosts a nationally syndicated talk show.
The guys a star and could have retired from all the rigors of the road years
ago, but from all indications he genuinely loves what he does.
At 63 years old Alice Cooper still rocks like he's 18 and based on the
bombastic, mock-carnage filled performance at the Taft Theater in Ohio's
Queen City, there's no sign of him packing up the makeup and shipping his
death-dealing props off the the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame yet.
A genuine icon of rock 'n roll and recently inducted into the aforementioned hall
of fame, Alice Cooper's brand of musical theater continues to wow his fans
and influence rock 'n roll.
Opening the show with “The Black Widow," Alice towered above the audience
blanketed by smoke and a wall of lights. On the stage below him, the 2011
Alice Cooper band consisting of Chuck Garric, Orianthi, Tommy Henricksen,
Steve Hunter and Glen Sobel, waited for their leader to descend to the stage.
Once down from his spiders lair, Cooper prowled the stage, working his way
to the front, unfurling his eight-legged spider garb. It was absolutely classic
For the next 90 minutes, Alice and his crew ripped through at least 20 classic
tunes including; “Brutal Planet," “I'm Eighteen," “Under My Wheels” and others.
The tunes spanned nearly the entire Alice Cooper catalog and included cuts
from the Love It To Death album through Cooper's newest release Welcome
2 My Nightmare.
For rock 'n roll fans, an Alice Cooper show is one of those events that has to
be experienced. As 2011 closed, Alice is certain to continue to perform live
and record. He was recently quoted as saying he'll keep performing until his
last breath. I hope that's a long, long time from now.
