Blog : No More Mr Nice Blog - Poison??
This is KC, Alice's Assistant.
As many of you know, Alice Cooper was forced to cancel his first show in 30 years last night! Alice got food poisoning somewhere on our trip between Phoenix, Mexico City and Santiago. We had a long layover in Mexico City, where he was feeling fine. Once we were on the plane to Santiago after an 8 hour layover in Mexico City, Alice started to feel ill. He didn't sleep the entire flight, so naturally when we arrived in Santiago he was feeling fairly zombieish. He was unable to sleep at the hotel all day, even after a visit from local Dr. Phillips (who I heard as Dr Feelgood as he introduced himself!). We got him on some medication and put him to bed, which is where he stayed until this morning.
I spoke with him a little bit ago, and he is feeling almost 100% better, though he is still pretty weak, which confirms that it was food poisoning and not some bug.
Naturally Alice HATES to cancel shows, and let me tell you he agonized over the decision for hours. In the end, he was simply too weak to get out of bed, much less do a 90 minute, high energy show.
As I went to bed last night, I thought about the fact that Alice hadn't cancelled a show due to illness in 30 years... That's about as long as I've been ALIVE! How many people can say they haven't taken a sick day in 30 years?? Pretty impressive.
At any rate, Alice is feeling better, we're on our way and he is looking forward to the show in Buenos Aires, Argentina tomorrow!
Alice thanks everyone for their thoughts, prayers and kind words.
