Blimp Time Hop: Photos Of Mainers With Alice Cooper
It's the legendary Alice Cooper's 73rd birthday. He was born Vincent Furnier in Detroit, Michigan on February 4, 1948. We made sure to celebrate on WBLM's Classic Lunch with a block of Cooper classics. Yeah, even though it's all about the intense action of the Blimp Bowl of Rock N' Roll consuming the airwaves, ya gotta make time to pay respect to great artist like Uncle Alice on his hatchday.
We thought it might also be fun to check out some great off stage photos of Alice Cooper when he was last here in Maine. This was when he was in town for a concert at Westbrook's Rock Row back in the summer of 2019.
Over the years, your Blimp DJs have had the privilege of meeting lots of rock stars backstage. We've come to the conclusion that they seem to all tell us the same thing when it comes to what they'll make sure to do while they're here.
The one mission they have in common? Eat some lobster! Looks like Alice found a great place to get a wicked Maine meal while he was here.
Here's a photo of Alice Cooper taken at J's Oyster in Portland and posted on Facebook by Jason Burns.
While most rockers who perform in Maine often make the obligatory trek to one of our many fine seafood establishments, there is one other thing that Alice does in his downtime that we find unique to him among his peers...golfing.
When Alice Cooper was in town for a sold-out show at Rock Row in Westbrook in 2019, he played at the nearby Spring Meadows Golf Club in Gray.
Check out these great photos of Alice with staff and golfers at the beautiful course. There's also some video of Alice's swing in the comments section of the post.
Watch this chilling performance from Westbrook if you dare. Alice Cooper remains the king of rock n' roll horror. Hopefully, we can do this again someday.
