2/20: ALICE COOPER RECAP, STARLAND & PITT THIS WEEKEND, ROBIN ZANDER, TMS, MORE
Just back from FL where it was actually cold for FL, but nowhere near the 0 degrees it is in NJ! Huge thanks as always to the Seminole Hard Rock for having me. Was awesome hosting Alice Cooper and spending some time with Alice and his killer band. Alice is a prime example of a case where age makes no difference at all on the quality of his performance. Few artists have been able to grow older in their career and be as good or better than they have ever been. Performance wise and visually the guy has lost nothing. He’s also one of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. I spent some time post show talking with Alice about a bunch of stuff and will also post a podcast interview with him soon. The 95 minute set had all the classic props and was divided into 3 themes with most of the hits and a set of covers. Thanks to all the great fans I met at the post show at the Hard Rock as well.
Speaking of podcasts hope you guys have checked out my brand new one that posted yesterday with Robin Zander. This is exclusive to my podcast and it’s a great conversation about Cheap Trick and much more. Free now on Itunes or www.podcastone.com
