I remember seeing Alice on the old Phil Donahue show. He recounted the story about a feud he was having with John Denver, and how Denver said he and his music would be around longer than Cooper, long enough for Denver to piss on his grave. So Cooper sent Denver a bunch of flowers and a specimen cup.
All these years later, turns out Denver wasn't such a straight guy and Cooper is the one who stayed married, cleaned up his act and now regularly plays golf...ewww! Just like your dad!
I like the irony.
I remember that story. It was in an old Circus or Hit Parade magazine.
I saw a Alice a couple times at Pirate's World in Dania. The last time he played there was the Billion Dollar Babies show in April 1973. I've seen him many times since then and this latest show was good but nothing will match the magic of the 1973 tour.
