KFIX Rock News: Alice Cooper Autographed Guitar Makes It To Top Of Mt. Everest
Alice Cooper’s official website is reporting that a firefighter named Todd Pendelton has climbed Mt. Everest to raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
One of the items Pendelton took along on his journey was a Fender guitar signed by Alice.
Pendelton reportedly plans to auction the instrument to raise more funds for his cause.
A posting from Todd’s Facebook page reads:
“It’s hard to put into words how difficult the journey has been. Death was palpable every time we put our crampons on. You had to focus on what you were doing, not what could happen, but it was always in the back of your mind.”
“I haven’t been able to put into words what happened on summit day yet, but it tested my soul. It was terrifying and beautiful. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone though.”
