And lives in an old church. But they had to remove the pews so they had enough room to store all of that garbage.

I realize he became a caricature of a caricature later in life and released some unconscionably sh*tty music, but Alice Cooper's output between 1969-1973, from Pretties for You through Billion Dollar Babies is one of the best continuous runs of rock records of that era. I'd put that stuff up against anybody...Led Zeppelin, The Who, you name it.

I know it probably sounds crazy to people who've only heard his awful 80s and 90s crap, but the guy was one of a handful of honest-to-God rock-and-roll innovators and genius songwriter at one point.

Why would you take a guitar to the top of Mt. Everest? Thats the stupidest thing I've heard today.
 
2013-06-21 04:39:50 PM
What's a name?
 
2013-06-21 04:49:51 PM
but how do you pronounce Milwaukee ???

& does it really mean "whale's vagina" ??
 
2013-06-21 04:51:28 PM
It's not a Strat, it's a Squire. ($99 new at any music store).

To play music at a service for every body you pass by on the way? Or just to make the sherpa earn his however little they get paid.

CSB:

so a few years ago i caught U2 on the "Claw" tour, and i was pretty close to the stage.  at one point, Bono played "One" maybe, ehhhh, 10-15 away from me.  The angle he was standing at was basically the angle i had looking down the fretboard.

so he gives his little speech and he's like, "i'm gonna play my green guitar" (guitar nerds, a beautiful green Gretsch, gold hardware, with a "the goal is soul" inlay for the pickguard).   60,000 people cheer.

well.....becuase of the sight line i had, i could see what others couldn't.  Bono's pick hand was a good 2-3 inches off the strings.  oh, he was scrubbing away at the guitar with his pick hand, but he didn't touch the strings once.  FAAAAAAAAAKE

You should really pick up his stuff from The Last Temptation on. I think you'd be pleasantly surprised.

""Alice" is being auctioned for charity. What is "Alice"? Oh, just a Fender Stratocaster autographed by Alice Cooper, taken to the summit of Chomolungma. What's Chomolungma? Oh, just another name for Mount Everest "

Alice Cooper: "Well, I'm a regular visitor here, but Milwaukee has certainly had its share of visitors. The French missionaries and explorers began visiting here in the late 16th century.

Pete: "Hey, isn't Milwaukee an Indian name?"

Alice Cooper: "Yes, Pete, it is. In fact, it was originally an Algonquin term meaning the good land."

Wayne: I was not aware of that.

Alice Cooper: "I think one of the most interesting things about Milwaukee is that it's the only American city to elect three Socialist mayors."

I thought of this exact scene with the term used for Mt. Everest. I love how he pronounces it the correct way in the movie  too.

So it's just a Fender Stratocaster.
 
2013-06-21 05:47:19 PM
Good for the charity but there's so much fail here it's pitiful. It's a cheap copy of the most ubiquitous and average guitar ever made. It's not even signed by someone famous for playing a Strat. Doing anything on Everest is about as douchey as driving your BMW to the gym while talking to your agent on a cell phone. Give the mountain a break. Seeing as how many people die up there because they run out of supplies, bringing a cheap toy guitar seems extra douchey.

Second from left. I bid $0.50, but only if I get a side of fries with it.

What is "not very many", Alex?

Most people who die on Everest die of altitude sickness (HAPE, HACE, stroke or heart attack), falls, exhaustion, getting lost in a storm or avalanche.

If I was the chef guy, I would have never stopped getting blown by the chick on the right.  and the redhead too, just to shake thigns up a little bit.

Meh, it is just a Squire.. I don't care where it has been, and who signed it.. not worth more than $20,000 for any charity ;-)

seriously though, I hope it raises some good money for that charity... Alice is a very nice guy with a great heart.. :)
 
2013-06-21 06:44:39 PM
It also comes with a 12-pack of fender heavy picks signed by Dio that was purchased from the base camp Guitar Center.

Then he realized he's never even been to Mount Vesuvius.

"Prior to her departure, Alice, a cheap Stratocaster, was signed by Alice Cooper thus giving her authenticity, credibility, and rockability."

And unless it was actually owned by Alice Cooper it value is about $2 more than a cheap used stratocaster.

So if you don't give 2 shiats about guitars, washed up singers or mountains how much is this thing worth?

Came here for this.

At first I was all, "Who the fark carries a Stratocaster to the Everest summit? Firstly, the weather will ruin the guitar. Secondly, you have to be an idiot to carry unnecessary gear on a trip so many have died trying to make (their perfectly preserved bodies are littered all over the mountain, FFS).

Then I read TFA. It was for charity. While it's still stupid, it's kinda cool.

jaybeezey: So if you don't give 2 shiats about guitars, washed up singers or mountains how much is this thing worth?


I wouldn't call him "washed up" seeing as how he's been smart with his money and still has the adulation and royalties of tons of fans - some in this very thread. I'm not a fan of his but my definition of "washed up" is someone like the guitarist for Warrant or RATT.

You could have just said 'while he has not been relevant for forty-god-damn-years, there was a 4 year period before most of you were born where I approved of him.

A lot of people have a few short years of brilliance, when they're rising and working hard.  Unfortunately the tons of shiat after usually don't make up for it.

I've never cared either way about this guy, I'm just grumpy.
 
2013-06-21 07:59:43 PM
Vince is a cool farking guy.

Period.

Never did anything but put on the show people wanted with no delusions about his place in it.

You can't say that about many or even most other showmen of his ilk.
