My first Alice Cooper experience was in 1971 at the Crookston Armory. Alice was out promoting his first album. Full stage show with the gallows and guillotine and the whole works.  I had never seen a show like that.

Fast forward 40 some years, I took my wife to see Alice in concert. She had heard of him but was never really into much rock music (I married her anyway).  After the show, we went backstage to see Alice and my wife and Alice chatted for quite some time. "What a nice man" she would say on the ride home.

Alice turns 72 today and is still going strong. Alice will be performing at Treasure Island Casino June 12th.  Check it out.
