#FanFeature Number 1: This handsome mug belongs to JY, AKA @schumalice (And if I'm not mistaken he's single ladies). Tonight was his 57th Alice show! That's FIFTY SEVEN. I can't even BEGIN to tell you how many times he's been backstage at the VIP Meet N Greet. His native tongue is French, but he also speaks a bunch of other languages SO... tonight we put to work as a translator during the meet and greet which ended up being incredibly helpful. Thanks buddy! Such a pleasure to see this face when we are on tour. Seeing familiar faces on the road is a bit like finding sand bars when you're floating in the ocean. Ahhhh. 🐚
#FanFeature number 4! Meet Molly (@smolly02) and Aaron (@ammetalhead86)! We ran into them at @whitecastle Store 35 in #Aurora after the Hollywood Vampires performed at @riveredgepark. We stopped to pick up one of Alice's favorites, #WhiteCastle burgers, and they happened to be in the store. They had gone to the show and Molly had gotten a set list from the stage. Lucky for her, I happen to know a guy and got it signed for her! And on my way back I grabbed my camera - They were so cool and I had to take their picture because they reminded me of when I was just a fan. Shows were adventures. You went out and you hoped for chance encounters like this. You wait by the fence, you hang out after the gig, you skipped school and work and drove long distances to see your favorite band and that's what made you a fan. It's all part of the experience. The whole gig was an event. For us in the business it's easy to forget that most people don't do this every day and it's nice to reconnect with that feeling. So thanks guys!
#PickMeCerealKyler number somethin or other (5, it's actually 5). This is @anasongin, a photographer I ran into at the #NiagaraFalls #HollywoodVampires show. As photographer herself, she's racked up quite the collection of credentials along the way. She did the Meet And Greet with the Vampires and was eager to show #JohnnyDepp her impressive Edward Scissorhands tattoo, which is really rad by the way! My favorite part of this image are her eyes. Those eyes man! See you again @anasongin!
#FanFeature number 6 (I think) This is Jeff (@jeff_mydel)! I'm not quite sure exactly where we first met but I've known him for years. A couple years back I took a quick snap of him in Alice's guillotine at #AliceCooper's #ChristmasPudding, long before you could buy the opportunity to do so thru the #AliceCooperVIP packages. Jeff always finds his way to a handful of shows, and this particular run of shows he dubbed Alice Cooper Week! Had a few minutes to take his portrait in #Bemidji last week, along side #JuliusSqueezer, who was just about to go back home before our tour thru Canada. Jeff, we'll see ya tomorrow night buddy! _____________________________________________________ I've been wanting to do more portraits, and I've decided I want to shoot you. Yea you. Have an interesting story? Am I heading to your city soon? Want to be my next feature? Repost this image and use the tag #PickMeCerealKyler and tell me WHY I should feature you! ______________________________________________________ #rocknroll #fans #tour #alicecooper #concert #blackandwhite #cerealkyler #featured #alicecoopervip #portrait #fanspotlight #frontrow #snake #boa #boaconstrictor #spendthenightwithalicecooper #redtailboa #redtailedboa
