While in Chicago last week.. shopping at Nordstroms Rack on State street I saw Alice Cooper. Here’s what happened:
I love Nordstrom’s rack. The only thing I DON’T like about The Rack is the lines.. and there are ALWAYS lines. The Rack on State street is no exception. I was standing there grumping to #3 about how unhappy I am about the line.. and I see this dude out of the corner of my eye. I noticed his white shoes first.. then the open neck shirt with the necklaces.. and the white visor… and I took a second look.
I say to #3; “I think that’s Alice Cooper.”
She’s like.. “who’s that?”
I say; “You know Alice Cooper.. he’s a singer like Ozzy Osborne but different?”
To which she says in her best Ozzy voice; “Sharrrroooon!”
I try to plead my case to the cashier.. she doesn’t know who he is either. Millennials! They know the Twitter and the Facebook, but not rock gods like Alice Cooper.
Alice Cooper.. standing in line just like the rest of us.
Here’s some pictures I found on the internet of him…
I called The Man and told him who I spotted. (because Alice Cooper was one of the first rock concerts he ever attended.) He was impressed with my mad skills. He of course said the famous line from Wayne’s World.
