'ALICE COOPER Day' Declared In Milwaukee

October 1, 2021.....

Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett proclaimed Friday, October 1 as "Alice Cooper Day" throughout the city. The legendary rocker is playing tonight at the BMO Harris Pavilion as part of his U.S. tour with special guest Ace Frehley.

Barrett explained his decision to honor Cooper, writing in a tweet: "If you are a Milwaukeean, you cannot forget @alicecooper's Milwaukee history lesson to characters Wayne and Garth in the 1992 movie 'Wayne's World', where he coined the phrase 'Mil-ee-wau-kay.'

"The Godfather of shock rock and stage theatrics, @alicecooper has entertained countless Milwaukee fans since his first Wisconsin show in 1973. I welcome him back to the 'good land' today by proclaiming October 1 as 'Alice Cooper Day' throughout the City of Milwaukee."

In "Wayne's World", Alice explained the meaning behind the name "Milwaukee," saying it was actually pronounced "Mil-ee-wau-kay," which is Algonquin for "the good land." As it turns out, Milwaukee does indeed translate to "good land," but from terms originating in the Ojibwa, Potawatomi, and Menominee languages.


Inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2011, Alice Cooper specialized in psychedelic-tinted music that presaged (and inspired) glam, hard rock, metal and even punk. The mighty quintet paired this music with theatrical and, at times, terrifying stage shows featuring things such as electric chair simulations and guillotine beheadings. Outside of the horror shtick, Alice Cooper never skimped on songwriting, which explains why "School's Out" and "No More Mr. Nice Guy" remain fist-pumping favorites.

That Time Alice Saw Syd Barrett Laughing At Cornflakes

Alice Cooper was no stranger to hedonism in his heyday, but even he was shocked by Syd Barrett's drug intake when he met Pink Floyd.

The veteran shock-rocker revisits pivotal moments in his life and career in "Who I Really Am: The Diary of a Vampire," the latest installment in Audible's Words + Music series. In an exclusive excerpt, which you can hear below, Cooper recalls spending time with Pink Floyd while both bands were still making a name for themselves in the late '60s.

After playing a show together at the Cheetah Club in Los Angeles, Cooper and his bandmates invited Pink Floyd to stay at their house for a few days. "The memorable moment of this, of course, was one morning when I got up early — I always got up early — walked into the kitchen, and there was Syd Barrett sitting at the breakfast table, staring at a box of cornflakes and laughing and having the best time of his life," the singer recalls. "And I'm looking at the cornflakes and looking at him, and he'd point at them and go, 'Huh, look at this.'

"I couldn't imagine how anybody could be that high, that early in the morning," Cooper continues. "I mean, we got high, but we didn't get that high. I went in and said to [bassist] Dennis [Dunaway], 'Dennis, Syd is sitting in the kitchen, staring at a box of cornflakes, and apparently it's television to him. All the little cornflakes are dancing and singing for him, and he's having the time of his life.' And Dennis said, 'Cool. You got any more of that stuff?'"
