On This Date, November 1st in in 1971: The Band called Alice Cooper released their fourth album, Killer, which went on to reach number 21 on the Billboard 200 album chart and sold one million copies in the US, initially. By now, the album has gone Platinum. Killer was the first Alice Cooper band album to not have a photo of the group on its cover. The snake featured on the cover of Killer is Kachina, a boa constrictor owned by drummer Neal Smith.
Anthony Kiedis Used to Look Like This
Red Hot Chili Peppers’ vocalist Anthony Kiedis was born on this day, November 1st in 1962! When I think of the RHCPs – which, trust me, is not often – I remember that one really great album they put out back in 1991, Blood Sugar Sex Magik (which is all about boning and taking drugs, so how could it not be awesome?), and how, when I saw them live on tour in support of that album, the support bands were… Pearl Jam and Nirvana. Ah, memories. Happy Birthday, Anthony!
