Alice Does Alice

The Godfather of Shock Rock has been on stage for 5 decades, I was a huge fan during the 70’s. When Alice released the most shockingly and provocative rock albums; School’s Out (1972), Billion Dollar Babies (1973), Muscle of Love (1973), and Welcome to My Nightmare (1975). I wore these albums out on my cheap record player.

April 25, 1975, Alice Cooper’s video concept performance, “The Nightmare” premiered on TV at midnight. In the TV special, Alice Cooper stars as “Steven” who is trapped in a nightmare he can’t wake up from and tries to escape. Vincent Price also appears throughout the special, starring as the “Spirit of the Nightmare”. The special features the Welcome To My Nightmare album in its entirety, with the addition of the song “Ballad of Dwight Frye” from the Alice Cooper album Love It to Death. “The Nightmare” won an Emmy in 1976 for Outstanding Achievement in Video Tape Editing for a Special.

I was a freshman in high school not quite 15 years old. My buddy decided, I would spend the night at his house. Watch the show and get up early and ride our bikes with our surfboards to College Point on the UCSB campus. The show was awesome and the surf wasn’t too bad from what I can remember.

Alice just played nearby at the Chumash Casino, a friend went to the show and said it rocked. I should have gone. Dammit! So if you still are in doubt that Alice Cooper can’t rock listen to “Alice does Alice” 5 songs re-recorded in 2010. It is fresh spin of classic Alice.

I’m your top prime cut of meat, I’m your choice,
I wanna be elected,Opening lines of Elected.

Enjoy the Music, David
