When I was a kid I discovered “Welcome to My Nightmare”, in my uncles vinyl collection, and it punched me right in the face. Alice Cooper, “the Godfather of Shock Rock", elevated heavy metal to new heights in entertainment. I’ve been a fan since I was a kid and was thrilled when a pic of Alice, holding his new Grip Reaper and Toxic Zombie guitar hanger, showed up in my inbox!
A big “THANK YOU” to our close friends at the Dick Wagner “Remember the Child” fund for helping us make the connection with Alice. Dick Wagner helped create infamous rock n’ roll classics like “Only Woman Bleed” and “Welcome to My Nightmare”, and was uncredited on classics like “My Stars” from the “School’s Out” LP. Do yourself a favor and check out the “Remember the Child’ fund which carries on Dick’s legacy of helping hospitalized children with the healing powers of music.
Both Alice and Dick were raised in Michigan, which just so happens to be the place that GuitarGrip designs and manufactures it’s unique hand shaped guitar hanger.
