Alice does a Q&A
Alice does a Q&A

Alice took some time out of his schedule in Florida before his concert  in Tampa this past Saturday in order to pay a visit the Dali Museum in St Petersburg.  Alice did a short Q&A session with commemorate the 40th anniversary of Dali’s 3D holographic piece titled “First Cylindric Chromo-Hologram Portrait of Alice Cooper’s Brain” which depicts Alice Cooper using a Venus De Milo statuette as a microphone whilst wearing a tiara and wearing two million dollars worth of jewelry.  Placed behind Alice was Dali’s sculpture of Alice’s brain, covered in a chocolate éclair and then covered in ants.  The entire piece is a rotating 3D hologram and was way ahead of it’s time.

Alice recalls his first encounter with the sculpture of his own brain; “I remember him (Dali) coming in the room with his entourage.  He came up to me and said ‘This… is the Alice Cooper Brain.’  “

I said, “Wow that’s amazing!  Can I have it?”

“Dali gave me a look and quickly waved his hand and quipped, ‘Of course not it’s worth millions!’  I’m still looking for the brain to this day.  It’s my golden fleece.  I just know it’s must be a paperweight on someone’s desk somewhere!”
