    1. I can imagine how entertaining that must have been, Lee. Jealous! I’d love to see him live, but so far, every time he was here, I was otherwise occupied and couldn’t go. Well, he’s still performing, so hopefully it’s not too late. 🙂

  1. LOVE Alice Cooper! It was great seeing Vincent Price with Alice. Classic horror. Vincent Price is the Prince of Horror, in my opinion. I hadn’t heard Feed My Frankenstein in eons! And wow, Stephen McCarthy’s video that he used was uber-creepy. That carnival music always creeps me out. It reminds me of “American Horror Story – Freakshow.” Did you watch that? And clowns! Don’t even get me started on how massively creepy clowns are. They make my skin crawl. Ew!

    Happy Halloween Debbie!

    1. Hi, Michele; Glad you enjoyed the post. It’s something from way back and I just added Stephen’s shared video to it. Definitely über creepy! 🙂 I haven’t seen “American Horror Story”, but it looks interesting. Isn’t Michael Chiklis in it? He’s good! So many people are disturbed by clowns. I wonder if that has anything to do with John Wayne Gacy, the serial killer who used to perform as a clown? Thanks for visiting and Happy Halloween to you, too.

      1. Yes, Michael Chiklis is in it. He’s sooo good. I loved him in that cop show that he did. I can’t recall the name off the top of my head though but I watched it faithfully. RE: clowns: maybe it does have to do with Wayne Gacy, or maybe that just adds to it. I was afraid of clowns before the Wayne Gacy case though. I was also freaked out by marionettes when I was a kid. Are you doing anything fun tonight? I’m going to turn the lights out and pretend not to be home, while I secretly make jewelry. 🙂

        1. The Shield. I loved that show too and watched it faithfully. I also liked his short-lived series, “Vegas”. Too bad it got cancelled so soon. Didn’t you love his last line on Sons of Anarchy? 😀 There’s definitely an element of creepiness with clowns, but I was never bothered by it. We always ignore Halloween too and usually go out for a few hours, or yes, pretend we’re not home. Today, we’re going to a late afternoon movie – “Burnt” – and dinner afterwards. I love your jewellery! You have a real talent for that, Michele. Hope you get lots of sales!

          1. Oo, remind me what his final line was in SOA? I can’t remember. I’m old! 🙂
            You’ll have to let me know how Burnt is. I love Bradley Cooper!
            Thanks for the compliment on my jewelry. I hope I have lots of sales too! Working on a promotion right now as a matter of fact…
            Have fun tonight!

  2. I have this CD and hubby and I love singing along to it. Alice Cooper was always a favorite and many memories of yesteryear come flooding back when his music plays! Great Halloween choices! Happy Halloween!

    1. Hi, Yolanda; Alice Cooper is the perfect choice for Halloween, isn’t he? 😀 I’m glad you enjoyed the selection. Happy Halloween to you, too.

  3. Good morning, Debbie the Doglady!

    Oh my. I’m old and set in my ways and not much of a “rock person.” “Daisy Bell (Bicycle Built For Two)” is more my speed. These intense images are too much for me. Now I’m gonna have nightmares. 🙂

    But seriously… it was a lot of fun to review highlights of Alice Cooper’s career including his 1975 TV special Alice Cooper: The Nightmare featuring my favorite horror movie actor Vincent Price. I probably haven’t watched it in 40 years. I enjoyed the part of the show in which Alice tangles on stage with Halloween’s Michael Myers and Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger. I also loved the scripted segment with Cooper and Price and the Black Widow production number. “Poison” is one of my favorite Alice Cooper songs and videos and I posted it on SDMM a few years back. Now I’ve got one for you. It’s another chilling Alice Cooper memory maker, one that played heavily on the MTV style television station where I worked at the time of the movie’s release:

    This was lots of fun, Debbie, and a great idea for Halloween. Have a safe and happy one, dear friend!

    1. Hi, Shady; Alice really knows how to put on a show, doesn’t he? 😀 It’s all campy good fun and the music is “killer”. \m/
      I’m glad you enjoyed the selection. That Vincent Price video is a classic, for sure. Thanks for your contribution as well. Loved the ending, especially. “Then let me explain”. Made me smile. Happy Halloween to you, too!

    1. Hi, Stephanie; I’m glad you enjoyed the selection. Alice Cooper is the perfect choice for today. 😀 Thanks for dropping in. Happy Halloween!

  4. With respect to you, Debbie, I will comment but I hate the ugly side of Halloween. When my kids were little I enjoyed their cute costumes and trick or treating. Now, I enjoy handing out candy to the little kids — beyond that, I don’t get it and want no part of it.

    1. Hi Carol; By ugly, do you mean the sickos who put razor blades in candy, etc.? With you there! We don’t do anything for Halloween either, but it was fun when we were younger. Lots of costume parties. This just gives me an excuse to post some videos. Alice Cooper is at his campy best, here. 🙂
