Hi, Spooky! Well, unfortunately I wasn't there, but perhaps Bruce knows if it was an opener for I.B. ... how 'bout it, Bruce, was that the show?

I think Alice Cooper was the headliner… to me. I watched them evolve locally from the Earwigs, to the Spiders...to something else… the Naz?.. and finally Alice Cooper. I played in another local band 'The Puritans' during that period and enjoyed other talented bands/players. They was that from the start. [remember the VIP, the Red Dog..]

So what was the question...Yes...it was the Alice Cooper Band... early on, original band, hittin the big time... Headliners at Veterans Memorial Coliseum...
