Drum Kit Cake Topper!
A Fan/Facebook friend of my pal Neal posted this awesome cake photo on his FB page for his recent Birthday, and I stole it because it is rules. The drums, cymbals and hardware all appear to be made of edible fondant, which tastes like ass but looks pretty cool.
Happy 40th Birthday, Billion Dollar Babies!
The original band called Alice Cooper released its sixth studio album, Billion Dollar Babies, on this date, February 25th, in 1973. Billion Dollar Babies, which went to the Number One position on every chart, is a very special album for me. Favorite Song: “No More Mr. Nice Guy.”
Here I am on one of Alice Cooper Drummer Neal Smith’s drum kits. All of Neal’s Gold and Platinum Albums earned for sales of Alice Cooper band records are on the walls behind me. Billion Dollar Babies is in there, somewhere.
Melting Musical Instruments Sculpture
This sculpture, entitled Melting Guitar, was created as part of the Young Artists Exhibition in Switzerland. I tried to find more information on the sculpture, such as the artist’s name or what year this exhibition is from, but it just kept taking me back to this image embedded on various Tumbler blogs. If you know anything about Melting Guitar please leave a comment below, thanks!
Thanks to Ava Rave for the Image!
