I have some pretty cool souls in my ‘hood. And more than one rock star. But none bigger than Alice Cooper. He is actually much different that most people think; a great father, a community leader in several ways (some pretty public, some not really known as well), producer of the spring play for the local grade school, and a guy I often have seen at school functions where our kids go.
Oh, and he has been one kick ass rock and roll motherfucker since, well, a long, long time ago. First time I saw him, I was a kid and my mother, who was a high school teacher, took me to a school dance where a band called the Spiders played. They went on to become Alice Cooper and the Billion Dollar Babies.
Tonight Alice was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Long overdue. Cheers and salute dude!
