Airbourne’s Joel O’Keeffe Joins Alice Cooper Onstage In Melbourne, Australia

During Alice Cooper’s February 14 set in Melbourne, Australia, Airbourne’s Joel O’Keeffe joined the singer onstage for a performance of “School’s Out.” You can see fan-filmed footage of that below. O’Keeffe commented:

“Bloody hell, I’m still buzzing my brains out from ‘School’s Out’ with The Coop! He’s so gutsy, I’m in awe of him every night just trying to learn as much as I can from his rock ‘n’ roll Masterclass he’s been slaying Australia with. So when he asked me to jump up, naturally I said, ‘Hell bloody yes. I’d be honored, mate!,’ whilst trying to hide the fact I was exploding with white hot nerves of fear to not let The Master down. I just said to myself, ‘Joel, if you fuck up even just one note, your head’s coming off in his guillotine.’ If The Coop asked me to guillotine my own head off for him, I would. I have the utmost absolute respect for the rock ‘n’ roll pioneer!”
