After Shock

Old shock-rockers don’t die, they just play golf a lot. And make public-safety commercials. And -- like any reformed blood-spewing, snake-fondling maniac -- become pillars of the community. So it is – sigh – with Alice Cooper, who’s transformed the notoriety gained from his rowdy days of the early ’70s into, well, community-pillarhood. But Alice still has some shock left in his system, as anyone who’s attended one of the first six Alice Cooper’s Christmas Pudding philanthropic blowouts knows. In addition to a set by Alice and company, the seventh includes performances by American Idol winner Jordin Sparks, California Transit Authority, Flo & Eddie of Turtles fame, and Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers.
