What is this book and Finally Question Number Ten me. The surname of Dober- was originally usually given to English workers who used what specific building material. We'll give you a minute to think about it. We'll be right back with answers. Khalid Sir Experience Cernan down great great do it here. We go question one. Let's get this one out of the way maybe our Alice Cooper pick that name subconsciously because he had some problems with alcohol later in life. A Cooper was someone who made made what barrels barrels cooper is a person trained to make wooden casks barrels that buckets tubs troughs and other staved containers from timber that was is usually heated or steam to make a pliable journeyman cooper is also traditionally make wooden implements such as rakes wooden blade shovels. The word is from the Middle Dutch or Middle German. Go question number two Alice Walker novelist short story writer poet social activist and the inventor of the term woman EST is best known for what novel for which she won the National Book Ward for Hardcover Fiction and the nineteen eighty three Pulitzer Prize for fiction the color purple the color purple she was the first black woman to win the prize and the book was adapted into a Nineteen nineteen eighty five film starring Oprah Winfrey. What Goldberg and Danny Clever it was made into a musical in two thousand five with a revival in Twenty fifteen starring the incomparable Cynthia Areso Areso as Sally and she performed a song on some late night show and I was again. I don't know what it is about musical songs. I think it like really really tickles. The the thirteen year old inside of me and I just cried and cried. Her voice is so beautiful anyway questionable three a little bird told me that Kevin Spacey's birth name was Kevin Fowler other that I can't think of another famous fowler. What is the historical occupation associated with Fowler like a like a bird keeper like I'll? I'll take it a bird. Keep its bird catching or bird hunting yeah. It's an English and or Scots surname its origin in the old English Fu Galare an and occupational name for a bird catcher hunter of wild birds old English fugel or Fogle means bird. It's kind of like a falconer to would be kind of the same yeah question number four Alice Walton is the heir to the Walmart Fortune and the second richest woman in the world with an estimated net worth forty five billion in two thousand. She courted controversy. I see by purchasing numerous important works of American art furnish. Her Passion project a cutting edge art museum in Bentonville Arkansas with a sparkling reputation. What is the name of this museum crystal. I still bridges crystal bridges so controversial. Is that how they say it in Britain so controversial so in in May two thousand and five the museum. Do you know about this. Tell me Okay I will admit to those and five museum purchased coveted Asher B Durand landscape entitled Kindred Spirits From The New York our public library so kindred spirits. It's shows Asher B Durand in another man and they're like they're being very chummy. At the edge of a beautiful cliff in there's like a moon soon and it's looking out over the Hudson Valley and it is a it is a quintessential piece of Hudson Valley Artwork. It depicts New York early New York. It's Hudson River school artists. The most famous Hudson rivers one of the most famous Hudson River school artists it was given to the New York Public Library by like a descendant descendant of Asher B Durand his daughter or something like that it's been with with near Public Library for years and years and years so they bought it. Okay Crystal Bridge Alice Walton specifically bought it for Crystal Bridges for thirty five million dollars in a blind auction and the reason why was because the New York Public Library was tearing very close to financial ruin so the thing that Alice Walton has been criticized of doing in the museum world is offering so much money money like because she has so much money she can offer any amount of money more than any museum could ever dream Um and because so many museums are having especially around that time two thousand eight early two thousands they were having such a hard time with endowments and money in that kind of thing that she was making a lot of museums offers they couldn't refuse views so so crystal bridges currently has an over two hundred million dollar endowment and can basically buy whatever burnt wants the gross clinic which is a a Philadelphia icon so is a good example of her holding local art hostage and two thousand six the museum partnered partnered with the National Gallery of Art Meaning Crystal Bridges partnered with the National Gallery of art in an attempt to purchase Thomas Eakins says the Gross Clinic from Thomas Jefferson University because they owned it outright so under the terms of the agreement the two museums agreed to pay a record sixty eight million dollars but the university gave Philadelphia forty five days to match the offer. We will buy this for sixty eight million dollars unless you can scrape up enough money and match the offer so it's really weird yeah. The Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts agreed to collectively match the offer and the painting remained in Philadelphia and the but the purchase forced both museums to sell some of their best eakins pieces which which is like ironic including cowboy singing the cello player and in April two thousand seven crystal bridges acquired another Eakins belonging Thomas Jefferson University entitled Portrait of Professor Benjamin h Rand for an estimated twenty million dollars so she has probably a good example from every state in the union how because she can just buy it. The other thing is is that Bentonville Arkansas is kind of economically depressed area. It's a state of the Art Museum Museum. It's the first art museum to be established in nineteen seventy four okay and she she also. There's no you don't have to pay to get in. It's free. It's free for everybody so on one hand. She's making very high end art accessible to a lot of people who wouldn't normally get to see it but at the same time she's basically like she's Carmen Sandiego going yeah. She's Carmen Sandiego doing all the best art in in the United States. So it's kind of crazy wow yeah isn't it great. Yes she's kind of the worst kind of the best at the same question number five nameless Alice I will not go through the entire thing but I will hit the high notes when her father took office following an assassination.

If you can't say something good about someone sit right here by me so roosevelt is the first-person say that Rupaul yet not wind. Joe McCarthy had the balls to call her by her Christian name. She said quote Senator McCarthy. You are not going to call me Alice. The truck man the trash man and the policemen on my block may call me Alice but you may not she was was also gorgeous like the most beautiful thing and she died at like ninety six two's amazing. I might do an episode on her. As question number six the surname her name Mahler is most associated with the Bohemian Austrian composer and Conductor Gustav Mahler who made beautiful music but wasn't especially artistic. What profession is associated with the name Mahler Let's a good question how about housepainter that is what I'll take it. It's painter particularly specifically a stained glass painter German in origin as you may or that you're doing great question number seven. Lewis Carroll's character of Alice's one of the most enduring in beloved characters and Fantasy Children's literature but how many books about allison her adventures in Wonderland did Carol Darrelle right gets to it is too so as Alice's adventures in wonderland which was eighteen sixty five and through the looking glass and what Alice found there in eighteen seventy one however there have been numerous workspace on the characters by other writers and artists stuff like that okay question number eight the last name of Fletcher Church might bring to mind the character of Jessica Fletcher from the eternal TV show murder she wrote but I'm not entirely sure if anyone in that series died from crossbow what occupation is associated with with the name Fletcher aeromaker.

He's what he's in his early sixty. He's at this point yeah so he can do whatever he wants. I guess Cooper told Rolling Stone magazine that he was elated by the news that the nomination had been made for for the original band as we all did go to the same high school together and we were all on the track team and it was pretty cool that guys that knew each other before the band ended up going that far so oh did they stay friends like okay yeah.

That's probably it I mean that's he credits it with you know cleaning up also FYI FYI I I didn't mention this yet. I thought I would have but I think I it got. Excellently ended it out. Alice Cooper is born again Christian and has been which seems in Congress right but has been since he got sober okay in the in the eighties so I'm.

They all love the show, but you know a lot of the critic said, well, take the show away and what are they does that famous quote from Dylan in the mid seventies Alice Cooper's underrated as a songwriter. That was one thing that just absolutely then we started getting respect. When Dylan spoke and said, Alice's great lyric writer. All of a sudden we got respect. How much did you pay him? Yeah, I didn't even have never met Dylan, and that was one of those things where like I didn't even know he knew we existed all of a sudden, these guys are listening to your albums and McCartney hurt her albums. He says, I snuck into the nightmare show in nineteen seventy five. He says, and it was great. I never saw anything like that. When you get those people talking about you, then suddenly everybody has to listen to you. Yeah, I think Dylan, especially talking about you as a great songwriter because you were saying things that no one else was saying or was allowed to say or felt cowed to say. I mean, we just didn't care. We just said what we were going to say and if it was clever, that was the important thing to be clever. I really did not want to be a blunt instrument. I wanted it to be in your face, but when when you thought about it, the second time you went all that's clever. I did. Before there. Blooming flesh will meet. Cadel. Upon me. See. Nothing. But you know, you think about a song like I love the dead, you know? I mean, necrophilia l. I mean my God, it's funnier than necrophilia. And even and Landers she went off on this necrophilia how dare you in this in this? And I wrote her letter back saying, if necrophilia takes off as some sort of fad, I I will take responsibility other than that get us sense of humor. Yeah. Yeah, right, right. It's a nobody serious about necrophilia. Okay. I in really's extrordinary how dense the press was when dealing with you. I I have always wanted to ask you about Bob. Green starts out, Chicago sometimes moves to the Chicago Tribune. Greg, and I as Chicago journalists, of course, you deal with Bob green, right? So he goes on tour with you in nineteen seventy three and writes a book billion dollar baby, and I had sort of respected some of Green's. I mean, when he would go meet a beach boy or something, it was kind of okay, right? But he did not understand how is Cooper and all when we realized he was gullible. That's when we went off. We would. Walk into the room and say, okay, Neal, this time you're going to be angry and you're gonna throw the ashtray against the wall, and he's gonna end soon as you would leads laugh because we never fought. But he's writing a book on us. We gotta make this really look like it's very intense, dramatic and everything. I think we made them dress up like Santa Claus at Madison Square Garden. We beat them up, but at the end of the show, yeah. Got mugged. I remember that. Yeah. Well, of course, Santa Claus you mug you want to be Santa Claus. Sure. But the but the show that he was kind of in -sconsin to me, it was like a play in itself..

"Thinking big about beer, goose island, beer company, Chicago, Illinois. With. Welcome back to sound opinions. I'm Jim, got us. I'm here with Gregg Kat, and that's a bit of the song reflected from the debut album pretty for you by our guest Alice Cooper that's nineteen sixty-nine. Alice by the late sixties, your band. The spiders had gone through a couple of name changes. I to the mas- not to be confused with Todd Rundgren ban and finally to Alice Cooper, what was it like playing in and around Los Angeles in those early years as Alice Cooper? The strange thing was we came to LA like every other band outta high school and trying to get into the whiskey trying to get into Beato lido's or any of the clubs, and who are you up against your gets the doors you're up against buffalo Springfield. They're already established. So all the bands were up against now, our spirit who were the best band. I think I'd ever heard live next Paul Butterfield and all the other bands that were just trying to make it. We. We finally got a gig at the whisky where it looked up at the whisky in it said Alice Cooper, and I said, and who's Led Zeppelin. And the they walked in and I looked at Jimmy page. Any went, hey, he was with the Yardbirds. So I said, we open for you and he says, okay, well, we'll open tomorrow the next night. The night after that we played the cheetah club, and I went Alice Cooper whose Pink Floyd. Syd Barrett Pink Floyd right now we fit in with Pink Floyd more than anybody else because we were writing these songs that were like we had like six two minute songs with thirty-five changes in them. Yeah. Well, I've always read that you're Taras. Glen Buxton was usually influenced by Barrett's guitar. Playing Glenn could not gem with a blues player, but you give him an echo. Plex ends at Barrett, and they would sit there for hours playing back and forth, echo flex stuff. Yeah. Now, the strange thing was was we were very influenced by mostly the Yardbirds that was like our influence, but then when we started writing our own songs leave took them in so many different directions. You'd hear a little bit of ice by, you'd hear a little bit of man from theme. You'd hear a little bit of this going on because we grew up with that stuff. We used to do the Patty, Duke theme, you know. Patty. Frank listened to like seven or the songs. And he looked at me and he goes, I don't get it. And I went well, is that good? He goes, oh yeah, it's great. The fact that I don't get it is really important. So you're talking about Zappa you were blowing Zappa's mine. Yeah. Yeah. Because he said, first of all, he says, your songs don't go anywhere. He says they don't go back to the verse. They don't go back to the chorus. They go to someplace else and then just stop. And I said, yeah. And he says, well, okay, says, no. Where are you guys from? He's from like New Yorker from Phoenix. He is now. I really don't get it. He's a, why would a cowboy town come up with guys that are playing stuff that that's even making me go? What. Zappa the great musical scholar is studying Edgar ver- Reese to get to the same place. You're getting to just out of sheer dumb. Like we don't know better. You know, the was the funny thing. We could write stuff that was like everybody else. But I said, well, why would we go there? Dennis Dunaway and I were the two real art majors and Dennis was the one that would take it off into another realm. And I kind of look at them and go, okay, yeah, let's go there. Why? Because nobody's ever gone there. Let's go there. Salesman..

"Opinions, and that's the title track from the nineteen Seventy-three. Album billion dollar babies by our guest this week, Alice Cooper, Greg, Alice was born Vincent Fernie in Detroit, but he moved Erazo and when he was a team in high school in nineteen sixty four, he was the lead singer, garage band. The spiders kicking around Phoenix for couple years actually moved to LA. The ban changed its name to Alice Cooper and Vince adopted that moniker himself. A couple of albums followed under that name pretties for you mentioned, sixty nine easy action, nineteen seventy, not making much of an impact, but in seventy one, everything clicked when the group started working with producer Bob as Ron, who's been a guest on this show, love it to death spun the mega hit. I may teen and a string of super successful albums, followed school's out billion dollar babies. And of course welcome to my nightmare. Pretty soon. Cooper was becoming infamous for the theatricality of his stage show. You know us inventing a style that would become shock rock and what he was doing. He was bringing onstage straitjackets snakes guillotine. I mean, this guy was doing it up big lots of blood, lots of fake violence. It was the most outrageous show in rock for quite a number of years in the early seventies, and we're very excited, talked to Alice Cooper else. It's a pleasure to have you on sound opinions. Thank you so much. Thank you. I know that my generation the who song was was a huge influence on you. I've. When did you first hear that song? Why did it have such an impact on you? But you know, we're in high school. All of a sudden the song comes on the radio, and it was probably the first anthem I'd ever heard the the first real anthem..
