Alice Cooper: Rehearsing at The Fillmore

Jim Esposito, Circus, October 1972

2013 NOTE: My photographer Flash and I were in New York City on other business when we heard Alice Cooper was rehearsing his upcoming tour in the (now closed) Fillmore East, so we ran over and hung out for a while. I wrote up a little sidebar for an Alice Cooper spread in Circus Magazine. The Editor – Howard Bloom (who always wore a pair of Koss Headphones around his neck) – tinkered with it a bit, which explains that closing line.
