Now if you have ever been to one Alice Cooper's shows, you know that he dies in some dramatic fashion at least 2 or 3 times. On April 7, in 1988, it was almost not an act! The famed shock rocker, had a bit of a prop malfunction and almost ended the show completely. tells the tale of how a thin piano wire snapped and our beloved night jock, was almost NOT our beloved night Jock! A quick slip through his noose saved his life on that evening and has allowed us to watch him do it over and over again.
