Dr. Dreary's Magnificent Time Machine: This Day In Alice Cooper History, 1969, Phoenix Coliseum
Dr. Dreary's Magnificent Time Machine is set to May 23, 1969. The Phoenix Coliseum is jam-packed to the upper level seats. A Phoenix radio station plays the long version of "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" every evening at sunset, so Iron Butterfly are mega-stars here. The promoter decided to have a revolving stage in the center of the arena. We can't get through the crowd. They're mobbing us because we're the hometown boys returning with some success under our belts. I wonder what they'll think when they hear our introduction: "And now, from Hollywood California ... Alice Cooper!"
