City Slang: Alice Cooper hits the Whisky

Posted By on Sun, Sep 18, 2011 at 8:01 AM

Detroit’s own Alice Cooper played the Whisky a Go-Go club in LA on September 15 in support of his new Welcome 2 My Nightmare album. This was the first time Coop had hit the stage at the Whisky in 42 years.

According to a press release, Rob Zombie introduced Cooper, saying, “I feel like I've spent the last two years giving Alice Cooper awards but he deserves it.”

The release reads, “The audience, including Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello, Cheech Marin, Paul Stanley, Tommy Thayer,Eric Singer (all from KISS), Ian Astbury (The Cult),were treated to a tour of musical rock history. Not only did Cooper perform his own classics, but covered quintessential hits such as; "Train Kept A-Rollin'(Yardbirds), "Brown Sugar" (Rolling Stones), "We Gotta Get Out of This Place" (The Animals), and both "Break On Through" and "Back Door Man" (The Doors) -- with special guest guitarist Robby Krieger of The Doors.”

Sounds like a great show. Now, how about a club date in the D, Alice?
