And to think I almost didn’t go to this show! For one thing, my neck is still giving me trouble, but it seems a bit better today. I definitely had an easier time driving and I was able to sit through the whole show tonight without much discomfort. And, the Flood City Music Festival was this weekend, so did I really need to go see more music today? Yes! It was so much fun. I mean, there wasn’t anything groundbreaking–Alice Cooper has been doing the same show for like 50 years, but it was super entertaining. And, I loved the fact that there were three guitarists. It was a wall of sound. Overall the musicianship was excellent and Alice Cooper sounded great as well. It’s hard to believe he’s 75 years old and still tours like he does.

This is the 3rd time I’ve seen Alice Cooper live, which is kind of crazy (the first time was when I was on vacation in New Orleans in 1998, and the second was in Johnstown in 2010). Type O has the record at 6. Thanks to OzzFest, there are a bunch of bands I’ve seen more than twice, but I couldn’t tell you who for sure. Probably Rob Zombie and Godsmack; likely one or two others. I’ve seen Tool three times, too (once on OzzFest). So, Alice Cooper now holds a special spot in my concert history.
