Yeah, I know it's from AI... and yes, Orianthi is in it too...

But when the special guest arrives, it makes it all worth watching!

    The character / stage persona of Alice Cooper has become a blueprint to many frontmen who followed in the world of Hard Rock / Metal. Just riding up the platform at the back of the idol stage he was already projecting Everything Alice. Danger, malice, in control while out of control, demanding and getting attention, the I in I AM.

    Commanding to say the least.

    Alice is a master of controlling the stage and his stage presence even as he has gotten older continues to get better and better, as if he ever needed to improve on perfection.  I don't think anyone touches Alice when it comes to commanding a stage.

    Never mistake a clear view for a short distance.

    Cool.

    Alice is still a great showman/frontman.

    The Best frontmen in Rock I have ever seen is, in no particular order:
    Till Lindemann (Rammstein),
    Alice, Fish (Marillion),
    David Bowie
    and Tony Iommi (Yes he was the frontman in, at least to me, Heaven And Hell).

    Bowie and Fish always projected the feeling that they were focusing on YOU,
    Till is just plain bad-ass, and Alice, well InMyHands said it.

    I saw him twice and his show has a lot more "acting" (props, dance,...) in it than a regular hard rock show.

    He's soooo great.
    Orianthi is sooo important for our genre.
