The Shock Rocker and The Surrealist

Following on from last week’s The Clean/Ronnie Van Hout discovery, here’s an art/music collaboration of epic proportions. First Cylindric Chromo-Hologram of Alice Cooper’s Brain (see footage above) is a moving hologram of Alice Cooper created by none other than Salvador Dali.  The mutual fans met in 1973, when the surrealist presented the musician with a plaster brain covered in chocolate and ants. The pair spent a fortnight together creating the work, which features footage of Alice donning a million dollars worth of bling and biting the head of a Venus de Milo statue (better than a bat, right?).  The work is now in the collection of the Dali Museum in Figueras, Spain.
