    Happy Birthday Alice

    Singer Alice Cooper is 71 today

    His was the first concert I attended - April 1975(?) Welcome to My Nightmare tour

    Went with my buddy and his older brother who drove us ... We were about as far away from the stage as the civic center could do; we were about two rows away from the back wall, and so, watched a tiny dot of Alice moving around the stage.

    Still, it was great fun ...

    He still puts on a great live show and his band is top notch. Most of them have been with him for years now.

    I wish his band members were less self-absorbed. It's what has kept me away for a while.

    Had it not shut down years ago, I would've liked to celebrate at Alice Cooperstown bar and grill...located next to the arena where the Suns play, and the ballpark where the Diamond Backs play.

    I've read somewhere where Alice is OK with this.. in fact he encourages it.. unless of course he's singing.. then the spotlight better be on him...haha

    I don't have a problem with him encouraging it. I can't stand watching it, though.

    Alice has always given plenty of room for his band members to work the crowd and have time in the spotlight. I have always thought it was kind of cool, but different strokes I guess......

    I saw Alice Cooper for the first time about 8 years ago. It was a totally entertaining show. Love his 70s work. The full band were excellent.
