Steve ‘MAC’ McLennan is a journeyman drummer…and an absolute ALICE COOPER nut-case.
Over the past four decades MAC has toured and recorded with some of Australia’s most acclaimed rock artists including; Swanee, Jeff St.John, Kevin Borich, Bob Daisley (Ozzy Osbourne Band), members of Rose Tattoo, Skyhook’s and Screaming Jets as well as local legends Ngariki, Kamakaze Kowboyz, Retro Rockets and The Heroes.
In 2005 MAC found himself on stage in New York, living his childhood dream, performing alongside one of his musical heroes – original Alice Cooper bassist Dennis Dunaway. MAC and Dennis have remained firm friends since that performance.
Dennis recently invited MAC to witness a rare performance by the four surviving members of the original ALICE COOPER band members Dennis Dunaway, drummer Neal Smith and guitarist Michael Bruce will perform with the legendary shock-rock performer at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center’s Andrew Jackson Hall, Nashville on May 14th, to experience a special mini-set featuring the four original members of the group and to attend a special Music Biz 2017 ceremony at which the band will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award.
As the most committed Alice Cooper fan on the planet, MAC knows that he has to be there! AND all his friends agree!
SO – in a show of support, MAC’s friends will gather at Lizotte’s on Thursday 4th May from 8:00 pm, to help raise funds for him to attend this momentous event!
MAC will provide the backbeat for a stellar line-up of performers including Justin Ngariki, Choc Eriwata (Witch Doctors), Greg Bryce (DV8), Mark Tinson (Heroes), J.D. (Blackest Sabbath),Trevor Dare (The Idols), Mitch Capone (Michael Buble Experience) and a sprinkling of other “special guests”.
A modest donation of $25 per ticket will ensure that MAC gets to hang with Alice In Wonderland…or at least in Nashville.
