The Trib has an article about Alice Cooper’s gig tomorrow at the state fair, and notes that his performance coincides with the release of his new album:
Great Falls gets to enjoy one of rock’s most iconic figures during the same week his 25th album, “Along Came a Spider,” is released. It’s a concept album that features a story written front to back by Cooper about a serial killer named Spider. “(Spider’s) absolutely connected with the idea that he’s gonna be a predator the way a spider is,” Cooper said. “He picks eight victims out. The police find them wrapped in silk, there’s one leg missing because he needs eight legs to make a spider ’cause this guy’s really psychotic.”

So – any of you folks plan to see Alice Cooper perform at the state fair?
