Picture this: You’re a college student about to graduate and, lo and behold, the original make-uped metaller, Alice Cooper, shows up at your commencement ceremony. Sounds pretty unbelievable, right? Well, that wild scenario is about to become a reality for students at the Musicians Institute College of Contemporary Music (MI).
MI has announced that everyone’s favorite Rock and Roll Hall of Fame bad boy, Alice Cooper, will serve as the keynote speaker for its commencement ceremony this Saturday (March 17) at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles, California. Who would have ever pictured the original "School's Out
" rocker speaking to a crowd of fresh-faced college kids at graduation back in the day?
"Alice Cooper is a rock and roll icon and we are thrilled to have him as our keynote speaker," said Tom Engfer, Senior Director of Education at Musicians Institute (via Blabbermouth). "His years of experience as a groundbreaking, innovative musician will provide our students with invaluable insight into the music industry."
Located in the epicenter of Hollywood, Musicians Institute provides "contemporary music education" and "cutting-edge resources" to help students build a career in the music industry.
