Special Thanks to “Famous” Toby Mamis

First off, thanks to the 300+ folks who attended and grabbed a copy of Dennis Dunaway’s Snakes! Guillotines! Electric Chairs!: My Adventures in The Alice Cooper Group book to be a part of the magic that special evening.  This event was TRULY a labor of love and one for the books.  It could not have been pulled off without the folks above and the folks below.  If you see your name in these credits I sincerely thank you for making this lifelong Alice Cooper fan’s ultimate dream a reality.  It still hasn’t fully set in.  If you don’t see your name and it should be listed I blame the tinnitus from that night from being too close to Ryan and Dennis’ amps.  I also just switched to Sanka, so have a heart. ---Chris Penn

"I would like to dedicate this release to my mom (Becky Jones 1949-2014) who never discouraged my dreams." ---Chris Penn
