Cover Story: Everyday Is Halloween

| September 30, 2011 | 0 Comments

For each day in October, IE has picked out something Halloweeny for ya’s. We’ll post a new item each weekday, with the whole weekend coming on Fridays. Without further ado, here’s the 1st and 2nd!

October 1st: Vic Rattlehead, Megadeth mascot

IE: Of all the Vic Rattlehead art, which is your favorite?
David Ellefson: The Peace Sells . . . But Who’s Buying album is still my all-time favorite. Dave [Mustaine] conceptualized it while we were eating at Wiley’s Ribs directly across the street from the U.N. building in New York City. The album cover is a direct visual of what we were looking at that day, only war-torn and with Vic out front selling the place. Those politics were so appropriate in 1986 and ironically still appropriate today.
— Steve Forstneger

October 2nd: Alice Cooper

It’s deliciously ironic that Alice Cooper, who once had fundamentalist parents locking up their sons, daughters, and chickens, is now a Christian himself: His new Bob Ezrin-produced Welcome 2 My Nightmare even opens with a faith-affirming anthem. But even if his song hasn’t remained the same, his live show has. Only now it’s a hit-filled Hell House in the middle of which he shouts “Repent!”
– Arsenio Orteza
