When Alice Cooper met Salvador Dali

In early April of 1973, a mind-melding of sorts took place in New York City. Over the course of about two weeks, shock-rocker Alice Cooper and surrealist king Salvador Dali, ate together, drank together, and basked in the glow of each other`s exceptional uniqueness.  The latter made a suggestion that went something along the lines of, “I would like to turn you into a work of art.  It’s name will be ‘First Cylindric Chromo-Hologram Portrait of Alice Cooper`s Brain.'”  The surrealist then handed Cooper a sculpture of his brain, sculpted out of plaster (or something), with a chocolate eclair running down it`s middle and ants crawling all over it.  The painter said, “This is Dali`s version of Alice Cooper`s brain,” to which Cooper replied, “Wow, I never thought I`d ever get this.”  And so the first 3-D hologram was inspired.

The artwork features Cooper, and his ant-covered eclair brain, biting the head off of the Venus De Milo while wearing $2 million worth of diamond tiaras and necklaces.

The hologram is in the Dali museum in Spain; this meeting of “eminent weirdos” has kind of been lost to history, but it will live on forever on the pages of SuperRadNow!
