It’s excellent!

We had the pleasure of seeing him live on Sept. 2/17 in Toronto (along with Edgar Winter and Deep Purple on a triple bill). Such fun!

As it turns out, this blogging addiction is still with me and I’ve missed all the social interaction. Thinking about making a comeback in the near future. Thank you all for your support! In the meantime, there’s still Instagram and Facebook. Cheers!

  1. Hi Debbie!
    Good to see you out and about 😉 Try to make a habit of it, would ya? Like many of the comments I see here, I’m not a huge fan of his stage antics – or his pet snake – but Alice Cooper really is a cool guy 😉

    1. Hi diedre! I know Alice isn’t everyone’s “cup of tea”, but it was Halloween, after all. 😉 Personally, I love his stage antics – Theatre of the Macabre! 😀 No snake though; maybe it’s been retired. Apart from that, he has an excellent catalogue of hard rock tunes. The new album is among his best work. Thanks for dropping in. I do plan on posting periodically for the rest of the year, then we’ll see how things go beyond that. Cheers!

  2. I’ve missed your posts and I’m sure others have as well.
    I saw Alice Cooper in concert sometime in the early 70’s. He headlined a concert that included Free and Todd Rundgren with the Hello People (loved that group!). It’s still among the better concerts I’ve seen.

    Tossing It Out

    1. It’s nice to be missed. 🙂 That sounds like a great concert, too. I’m so glad we finally got the chance to see him. He really knows how to put on a show and the band was killer, especially Nita Strauss. She’s a direct descendant of classical composer Johann Strauss. Thanks for dropping in.

  3. You know, I don’t much like Alice Cooper’s music, but I find I really like him. He’s real down to earth and nothing like his stage persona. He was good friends with Glen Campbell, and to hear him talk about their friendship was pretty amazing. For two performers whose styles couldn’t be more different, they had a lot in common.

    1. Yes, Vincent Fournier, the man behind the Alice Cooper makeup is a great guy, by all accounts. ☺️ I didn’t know about his friendship with Glen Campbell. Interesting! Thanks, John.

    1. Hahaha! it probably is Janie. 🙂 I do want to come back, but need to get a better handle on time management. Thanks for dropping in and for the kind words.

    1. Alice has always been a favourite of mine. In fact, right now, I”m watching him perform “The Ballad of Dwight Fry” on Jimmy Kimmel with Dave Grohl and Foo Fighters. 😀 Theatre of the Macabre! Love it! It really is hard to stay away from the Blogosphere and I want to come back, but better time management skills are needed. Thanks, Bren! 🙂

      1. I did not notice, the title of your blog referred to Alice Cooper, the singer. Or, maybe I did, but when I read where you are considering blogging again, in real time, I may have gotten a little emotional (on the happy side) and lost all train of thought.

    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. 🙂

  4. 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!

  5. 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!

  6. 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. 🙂
