This show took me full circle as my first introduction that I can remember to rock music. At the age of 10, I watched Top of the Pops to see this man with long hair and makeup surrounded by his band rocking out on guitars to a song called ‘Poison’. I loved it and wanted to hear more.
Stood in a photo pit 18 years later about to take Alice Cooper’s pictures was something I would have never imagined possible. Terrorizer Magazine really had no idea how much being booked for this meant to me.
Before Alice Cooper was Joan Jett and Motorhead. A line up not to be messed with really. Such talent.
Unfortunately at Wembley they have a policy whereby if you don’t have a ticket, you can’t stay for the show. A Photo pass doesn’t count. So everyone was escorted out.
I got chatting to the security and they ended up giving me a wristband so I could go in for the show and they put my camera in a secure room until after the show. Nice eh!!
Right at the front by the barrier I watched in awe of a great performer and stage show. They dropped money on the crowd and one of the guys at the front even gave me a set list at the end that he had. I didn’t ask for it, he just offered.
It was a real treat of a night and something I will always remember. Look out for the pics in the coming issue of Terrorizer Magazine.
