ALICE COOPER's Mom Has The Original 'School's Out' PantiesRarities
PhoenixNewTimes' Glenn BurnSilver recently spoke with ALICE COOPER
about the 40th anniversary of his signature ode to teenage rebellion,
The School's Out original vinyl release featured not only a cover
that opened like a school desk, but an album wrapped in a pair of girls
panties. An addition that Cooper, who notes three band members studied
art at school, says was as obvious in application as it was promotion.
"If you were 14 years old and on Monday morning you could sit at
your desk and produce a pair of panties, you were the man," he says with
"They were probably your sister's, but it looked like you got lucky,
like you went all the way, which was probably a lie. But the idea of
the paper panties was for the big bravado of producing the panty. We
only did it on the first 100,000 copies. Everybody who has those now,
those are like real collector's items."
But Cooper says he never even saved a pair to call his own.
"I'm not a collector at all. I give all my stuff away. My mom
collects stuff. She has a really incredible collection of my stuff. She
has the original panties."
