Imagine a high-end, church-sponsored fundraising event; you know, at a nice theater, with a special dinner, plus entertainment, for the VIPs, followed by a night filled by affluent, middle-aged supporters and their superbly coiffed and coutoured wives. For the evening’s entertainment; a couple of gospel acts, an aging star, an auction (of course), a schmaltzy comic and/or a schmaltzy magician; maybe even a big name Hollywood star, thrown in for good measure. Now put Alice Cooper in charge of the whole shebang.
Happy Halloween! We’ve opened the crypt to bring you some of DOOM!’s spookiest past coverage! Alice Cooper’s 12th Annual Christmas Pudding was one surprise after another; mixing hard rock and gospel, magic and speed painting; sunbelt comedy and big-money auctions.

Sean Wheeler & Zander Schloss each have true punk cred, no matter which definition you use: Wheeler as frontman for SoCal punk revival band Throw Rag. Schloss has played bass and guitar in iconic punk acts like The Circle Jerks, The Weirdos, and Joe Strummer.
I was 18 when I first saw X. Exene Cervenka and John Doe were 22. She was a tiny, exotic beauty with a voice that would alternately rip your guts out and break your heart. He was hot punk on wheels. The music was raw, the lyrics often brutal. I was hooked.
