Turning 60 this year (wow, that is so cool!), Alice Cooper was part of my generation and we either loved him or we hated him. Those of us who loved him, tried to be him, like my friend David here, who comes to work “dressed to kill” every day 🙂
Anyway…as disgusted as I was about his antics on stage, I could not help but be mesmerized by his music. School’s Out was probably my favorite song for many years and I still sing it at the top of my lungs if it comes on the radio when I’m driving in my car (yes, I get a few strange looks).
I enjoyed reading this article below where Cooper was quoted as saying: “Alice isn’t warm and fuzzy.” Hard to believe, isn’t it, especially if you’ve seen him with the Muppets!
I love that video – surreal somehow…I probably look like one of the Muppets when I sing it 🙂
So…I’m looking forward to seeing how Alice does this week at the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic – probably not too bad, given his handicap is somewhere around 4 or 5. You know, if I had to pick a fantasy 3-some of celebrity golfers to play with, he’d be on that list for sure. I think it would be a hoot to play with him.
Rock on Alice! But stay out of the rocks at Silver Rock if you can. They’re nasty!
And David, my friend….even a low handicapper as yourself should really take a lesson from Alice and stick to proper dress code at next year’s company golf tournament. 🙂
