Alice Cooper and Barack Obama, Together Again for the First Time

Here’s a little snippet I paraphrased from a press release sent to me earlier this week.
“School’s Out! Alice Cooper and Barack Obama Headline ASU Graduation.”

On Wednesday, May 13, Alice Cooper will appear before an anticipated crowd of 63,000 [Note: the release actually gave the number as “63,00,” so I’m just guessing], including 9,000 Arizona State University graduates, at ASU commencement ceremonies at Sun Devil Stadium in Phoenix. Alice will perform the perennial start-of-summer anthem “School’s Out,” backed by Runaway Phoenix, the band of which his son Dash Cooper (ASU Class of ’10) is a member. Also appearing on the program is “top billed” President Barack Obama, who will deliver ASU’s 2009 commencement address. “Of all the people I’ve ever shared a stage with, Obama is the biggest rock star,” said Alice. He went on to remark, “And I’d like to thank him, in advance, for changing the national anthem to ‘Schools Out’.” Putting Alice Cooper together on any bill with President Obama is particularly hypocritical and hilarious when you consider that Alice Cooper is well known Conservative Republican whose politics are just about as far right as you can get this side of the loony bin door. School’s Out, Motherfuckers!
