“Alice Cooper Court” is the third rock star street name created by WCSX. Other Detroit area tributes include “Bob Seger Boulevard” and “Glenn Frey Drive”.
“From Glenn Frey Drive to Bob Seger Blvd, we’ve tried to celebrate great local musicians,” said Big Jim. “But NEVER has an artist and location made more sense than Alice Cooper Court at Eloise Asylum. We can’t wait to celebrate Alice here in the Motor City!”
To commemorate the dedication, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland is adding an official “Alice Cooper Court” street sign to its Legends of Rock exhibit, which features a new Alice Cooper display opening September 23rd. In addition to the street sign, fans can check out Alice’s original electric chair prop, and costumes worn from his iconic tours.
“Rock and roll is as much about the spectacle and visual as it is the sonic. Inductee Alice Cooper spawned a new generation of rock and roll with both” said Nwaka Onwusa, Chief Curator and Vice President of Curatorial Affairs, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. “We are thrilled to add the official street sign to our exhibit as we celebrate Alice Cooper’s legacy with fans and share stories behind the music he created”
