Alice Cooper’s iconic guitarist Nita Strauss took to social media today and penned an emotional letter to her long-time friend and also talented guitarist, Courtney Cox.

As Nita stated in, she feels so lucky to be able to play at the same stage with Courtney, and she also called Courtney’s guitar skills as impeccable and aggressive yet fun.

We have to add that this message is not for no reason at all. Today is the birthday of ‘The Iron Maidens‘ star, and this is why Nita asked her followers to share their celebration messages with her buddy.

Here is that heartwarming letter of Nita:

“It’s Courtney Cox’s birthday!

I remember the first time I saw the Maidens, from the audience, before I auditioned. The band was amazing, but for me, Courtney’s beauty, impeccable technique, aggressive yet fun stage presence, and infectious smile took center stage. I remember thinking- I have got to be in a band with this girl. And so we were…⁣

Many many years later, filled with countless early airport mornings, hundreds of shows around the world, probably thousands of beers (good thing we don’t do that anymore for everyone’s sake haha) she still continues to inspire and elevate me and all of us around her more and more every year!!⁣”

She continued:

“Simply put: If you’re a guitar player and you’re going to be in stage with Courtney Cox, you better SHOW UP and bring your A-game!! Because she never brings anything less!!! And be ready to have some fun. 💃🏼⁣

Go follow @ccshred, check out her gorgeous signature @caparisonguitars, and wish her the happiest birthday!!! I don’t think anyone is more excited to hear this solo record than I am!! I love you Coco and I hope you’re having the best day!!! Peeeeaassssss #birthday #ccshred #ccshredders”
