Love You to Death, Alice Cooper

Posted by on Sun, Nov 18, 2012 at 3:13 PM

(Emerald Queen) I was turned on to the high-quality early rock of Alice Cooper (as opposed to the cartoonish later schlock of Alice Cooper) by one of his biggest fans: Joey Ramone, who listed Cooper's Love It to Death as one of his favorite albums. So great was my love of Joey Ramone, I bought Love It to Death on his say-so. So great was my love of Love It to Death, I happily bought a couple other early Cooper records (Killer! Billion Dollar Babies!) and loved them, too. These days, Cooper's essentially a male Elvira, but his early songbook will provide him high-quality rock fodder until we're all dead.

Saw him live a few years ago at the Clark County Fair just outside Vancouver, WA. Having been a fan of Alice for some time I was stunned to see how family friendly his audience was... And these weren't just casual fairgoers who decided to sit down and relax and just happened to wind up in the stands - these were die hard fans. I'm talking grandmas and toddlers in Alice Cooper tees... Bizarre.

I saw Alice here in Seattle in about 1974 with the original band. "Billion Dollar Babies" was the current album. I loved it. To Death.
