Alice Cooper wants to pay tribute to chicken

London: Rocker Alice Cooper says he would like to build a statue in honour of the chicken which was killed at one of his concerts more than 30 years ago.

The 63-year-old singer, who hit headlines in 1969 when their audience at a show in Canada tore the live bird to pieces, now feels a proper tribute should be paid to the animal whose bloodied body was thrown back at the band, Contactmusic reported.

“Here’s the kicker. The people in the first five rows were all in wheelchairs. They didn’t like the idea that the chicken could walk – that’s what flipped into my mind. And this was the Toronto ‘Peace’ Festival! I am seriously thinking of erecting a statue there; Monument to the Unknown Chicken. The noble bird that lost its life in the service of rock ‘n’ roll and gave Alice Cooper a career,” he said.

Cooper is not the only rocker to have had an encounter with animal slaughter at his show, as heavy metal group Metallica saw a fan shower the band with bits of recently-slaughtered pig. (PTI)
