Cooper-Duper

In Alice's wonderland, even trash turns platinum

Not that the sixteenish sex preoccupations of his new hit songs have limited Cooper's wild imagination any. "The Alice Cooper show is still a very surrealistic piece of work," he insists.

Cooper's description of the current stage act supports the claim. For example, hundreds of rock stars over the years have employed visual aids on stage to underscore the sexual themes of their songs. David Lee Roth sang with a huge microphone protruding from between his legs. The Rolling Stones toured with a giant inflatable phallus in the mid-Seventies.

But who else but Alice would think of illustrating the old horizontal Lambada this way:

"I'll bring out pool cues and giant balloons full of confetti," he laughs. "I'll bombard 'em with all kinds of images during the show. And in the end, you ask 'em what happened and maybe one in fifty will get what I was going for.

But the other 49 stories are even better!"

Alice Cooper will perform at Mesa Amphitheatre on Tuesday, April 10. Show time is 7:30 p.m.
