Beasley Media Group announces WCSX-FM/Detroit morning personality Big Jim O'Brien from "Big Jim's House" will join Motor City rock legend Alice Cooper to unveil Alice Cooper Court on Thursday, September 23 at Eloise Asylum in Westland, Michigan. "Alice Cooper Court" is the third street name created by WCSX honoring Motor City rock icons. Other Detroit area landmarks include "Bob Seger Boulevard" and "Glenn Frey Drive."

The official ceremony begins at 2pm ET hosted by Jim O'Brien, and includes remarks from Alice Cooper who will attend the unveiling prior to his concert performance at the DTE Energy Center Saturday September 25. It will also feature a live performance by Alice Cooper cover band, "The Nightmare."

"From Glenn Frey Drive to Bob Seger Blvd, we've celebrated great local musicians," said Big Jim. "But never has an artist and location made more sense than Alice Cooper Court at Eloise Asylum. We can't wait to celebrate Alice here in the Motor City."

"Alice Cooper's stage show features guillotines, live snakes and a strait jacket," added Beasley Media Group Vice President of National Content and Director of Detroit Programming, Scott Jameson. "So, it's only fitting we honor him with a landmark on the grounds of a century old Detroit area sanitarium. Some things just write themselves".

To commemorate the dedication, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland is adding an official "Alice Cooper Court" street sign to its Legends of Rock exhibit, which features a new Alice Cooper display opening September 23rd. In addition to the street sign, fans can check out Alice's original electric chair prop and costumes worn from his iconic tours.

"Rock and roll is as much about the spectacle and visual as it is the sonic. Inductee Alice Cooper spawned a new generation of rock and roll with both," said Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Chief Curator and Vice President of Curatorial Affairs Nwaka Onwusa. "We are thrilled to add the official street sign to our exhibit as we celebrate Alice Cooper's legacy with fans and share stories behind the music he created."
