Alice Cooper in Quake/Rib-break Shock Horror

 

No more mister nice
guy for the Coop’s doc, eh?

By Fred Mills

 

That recent 5.4 earthquake in L.A.? While filming a promotional
film on July 29 for his new Along Came A Spider (SPV) album at Linda
Vista Hospital,
an abandoned facility in East L.A., Alice
Cooper was in the process of choking a nurse. No, we are not making this up.
According to Cooper’s handlers the band,and everyone on the set (including
director Piggy D) was shocked into “a stunned silence.” 

 

According to the Coop, “The floor started moving. Whoa, this
is more powerful than I thought! I hope they keep it! You can’t get special
effects like that.”

 

Er, yes. Just ask anyone who’s lived through an earthquake. At
any rate, Cooper’s “Psycho-Drama” tour—approximately 100 shows from
July 5 to December 4—continues apace. In Redmond,
Oregon, recently, we are advised, fans looked
on “fascinated as Alice took a
violent fall [and many] figured it was part of the show. Alice,
hurting, continued with the performance and with a few performances after that.”

 

Eventually Cooper, still hurting, went to his physician who
informed him he’d suffered both a broken rib and ligament damage and prescribed
three weeks of rest. He has yet to take that advice, however.
