Tricks & Treats 09: Rock and Roll's Halloween King
Alice Cooper is the king of shock and awe in the world of rock and roll. "Welcome To My Nightmare" still stands the test of time and the live show that accompanied it gave inspiration to the later generations of shock rock including GWAR and Marilyn Manson. As I posted here before, one of my all time favorite Alice Cooper records is a concept album called "From The Inside". You can learn more about that album here. When Alice took to the road to support that record in 1979, he had a concert recorded live for both a radio show (the ever popular King Biscuit Flower Hour) and a video release. Today I share with you the radio show that aired back in the day. In addition to Alice Cooper playing his hits and more, it features an introduction and narration from one of the kings of horror, Mr. Vincent Price. Here is "The Strange Case of Alice Cooper" from The King Biscuit Flower Hour. Enjoy!
