"Surely you can't be serious?"

"I am serious, and don't call me Shirley."

Spookily, the great Leslie Nielsen has died:

I loved Police Squad and the films that followed and was lucky enough to catch his one-man show on the life of Clarence Darrow - what a really great serious actor he was too. And don't forget "Forbidden Planet" for all you sci-fi fans out there. I'll miss him.

Is anyone going to see Alice Cooper/motorhead/Joan Jett at the Hallam next week?

They're not - my friend got tickets for me, himself and his family for Sheffield - which is without The Dolls sadly.

I HOPE they are better when you see them than the last time they played Rebellion!!!

Let's face it - it would be impossible for them to be worse...

Hang on a minute - do you think YOU could do any better?

Oh, actually, of course you can.

Sorry Teev! What was I thinking?!

In fact, even I could do better than that, so let's hope they have some proper rehearsals this time.

Alice Cooper on "The First Time"

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0167vd9
 
The image of Alice Cooper as a cartoonish Halloween schlock rocker is one that the 63 year old Vincent Damon Furnier has worked had to establish, but his real musical and cultural impact is often ignored.

His band emerged from the Detroit garage rock scene of the mid 60s alongside The MC5 and Iggy & The Stooges and can lay claim to helping inspire punk as much as either of those revered acts (it's no coincidence his track Eighteen was sung by Jonny Rotten at his audition for Sex Pistols). But he was also the first musician to approach rock concerts as theatre - introducing theatrical imagery and stagecraft way before Bowie picked up the pan stick.

Here Matt Everitt speaks to Alice about his early years, how he developed his showmanship, and the massive international success that followed albums like Welcome To My Nightmare and School's Out - albums that turned him into a household name. With typical grace and humour Alice also discusses his battles with alcoholism, his creative rebirth with his legendary cameo in Wayne's World, and his life as a born again Christian - an interesting contradiction considering the battles he's endured with "moral" crusaders the world over and the depraved characters that he portrays.

And, of course, we talk about his overiding addiction...golf (he plays six days a week off a handicap of two).
