The OC Register has a review of the LA show (although you wonder if they actually watched the show). The Dallas Observer has a short Alice interview with a very deceiving headline. Houston Press has a longer interview, and finally Ultimate Classic Rock have video and setlists from the Las Vegas show.

Alice turned up on the BBC World Service 'Top Of The Pops' which you can hear here about 7 minutes into the show. Alice will be back on Radio 2 on August 28th for an hour long special with Johnnie Walker. The show airs at 8pm UK time.

'Paranoiac Personality' received it's first live performance at the Tromso show on Friday slotting in near the end of the show and by all accounts sounded great. Alice has promised a few more 'surprises' on the next leg of shows so lets hope it happens.

Meanwhile on their days off the band have been busy playing a couple of club shows. They played the Hard Rock Cafe in Oslo, Norway on Sunday night (review here) and play Sticky Fingers in Gothenburg tonight!

UPDATE: Alice himself joined the band at 'Sticky Fingers' for a few songs including 'No More Mr Nice Guy', and 'School's Out'.

EarMusic have posted two new videos in the last couple of days. The first is a 11 minute sampling of clips from the new album, while the second is a nine minute interview with Alice talking about it.

'The Nightmare' Arrives On DVD

In the last few weeks various japanese sites have been surfacing with listings for a new DVD featuring the 1975 'Welcome To My Nightmare' live concert film. While this in itself wouldn`t be that exciting (it's been released several times over the years), what IS exciting with these listings is that they said it will come with the first DVD release of 'The Nightmare' TV Special, something we've been asking for for years! Well, it now seems to be official, and the DVD will get a worldwide release on September 8th!
'The Nightmare' is the original 1975 TV show companion to Alice's first solo album, and features slightly different versions of all the songs from the album, plus 'Ballad Of Dwight Fry', along with guest appearances by horror legend Vincent Price throughout. A VHS tape of the show was officially released in the early 80s but quickly vanished again, so up until now the only way of seeing it was either bootleg copies or on Youtube. There's no information yet as any other details about this release, including whether it will have Alice and Brian Nelson's classic commentary for the live film that was originally only available on the US Rhino version of the concert film, or how much work has been done to improve sound or picture, but the simple fact it's finally being released should be exciting enough!

Today's press

Thursday's press launch has resulted in various short mentions in the UK and world press. Most consist of simply pulling short quotes out from the Q&A but a few are a little more interesting. One worth talking about is from 'The Sun' who have taken a few comments Alice made about politics, and added a completely frabricated context which wasn't mentioned or suggested in what he actually said during the Q&A. They headline the short report with "Alice Cooper hits out at Glastonbury for bringing politics to the Pyramid Stage following Jeremy Corbyn’s speech". Alice didn't mentioned Glastonbury or Corbyn at all while explaining his often repeated opinion that rock and roll and politics shouldn't mix. As previously, he explained that going to a rock show should be about escaping normal everyday issues like politics, and just having fun. The Glastonbury context is completely false and simply made up by the writer, presumably looking to push their own agenda. As usual, don't believe all you read, especially in The Sun!
Yesterday Alice turned up at the Silver Clef Awards in London. Chieftain have a short video from the red carpet and lots of photos from the event are appearing on facebook and elsewhere.

Alice is scheduled to appear on BBC Radio 4 show 'Loose Ends' today at around 6.15. It should be available to 'listen again' shortly afterwards.

PennyBlackMusic have an excellent, long interview with Cindy Smith Dunaway which includes lots of background to her involvement with the early days of the band. Well worth reading.
You can also now watch the video version of 'The Rocker Dad' podcast interview with her husband Dennis Dunaway on YouTube.

The Guardian have followed up their recent webchat with Alice, by reprinting an old article from way back in 1972. Unfortunately they also have a mid-80s photo accompanying it... Still, it's the thought that counts!

London Album Launch

Very Big ChairLast night was the official 'Paranormal' album launch which took place at the 'hidden masonic lodge' in the  Andaz Hotel, London, which was a cool setting for the event, and has an interesting back story. The very plush hotel is built on the site of the old Bedlam hospital for the insane and was only discovered relatively recently during construction work, having been forgotten about for years. You can read a little history and see some pics here to give you an idea. Chairs were arranged in the center of the room with press folders for everyone including a welcome letter, a sheet of European tour dates, and a signed photo of the album cover.
[Warning: Possible spoilers below]

The evening began with a brief intro from our hosts from earMusic before they proceeded to play selected tracks from the forthcoming 'Paranormal' record. The sound system wasn't great to be honest, and while good enough to get a feel for some of the songs it wouldn't really be fair to completely judge things from just this single playback. Also bare in mind these are my personal first impressions and not meant to be a proper review of the record.
They began with the title track, 'Paranormal', which brings to mind early 'The Who'. It sounded a little disjointed on first listen but I'm sure when we get to hear it properly it will all come together better. Next up was 'Dead Flies' which has a Hendrix feel/groove along the lines of maybe 'Fire' or 'Crosstown Traffic'. "It's all Lies, We're Dead Flies". They then skipped ahead to 'Fallen In Love (And I Can't Get Up) which has Billy Gibbons all over it, sounding not unlike Alice singing on a real ZZ Top track, with that familiar blues swagger. I also think I heard a few old song references including 'Billion Dollar Babies' and Desperado' in the lyrics.
By now it was becoming clear what Alice meant when a few months back he referred to the album having a "70s feel". He didn`t really mean an Alice Cooper 70s feel, but more a general 70s rock feel, and I think comparing it to 'Killer' was a bit of a red herring!
'Private Public Breakdown' was next up and has more of an 80s big rock feel to it. Kiss (around the 'Lick It Up' period) was my first thoughts. 'Holy Water' though has another change of pace, with an almost jazzy groove (more 'Blue Turk' then 'Last Man On Earth') including horns, and what felt like a LOT of lyrics which could have had a duel meaning, both telling a story and having some religious undertones as well, but as with all these songs it really would need to be heard properly to fairly judge. This was probably the one that sounded most interesting up to that point, and I wrote "best???" in my hastily scribbled notes. That was until they followed it up with 'The Sound Of A'. This sounds like the real winner on the album. Very Pink Floydian and maybe the longest track on the album, allowing the song to build naturally which is something I think has too often been missing on recent material. This could be a future classic and I can't wait to hear it properly.
Finally, we got to hear one of the two new original Alice Cooper band songs, 'Genuine American Girl', which I think Alice later mentioned was a Neal Smith song. It starts with Neal laying down a drum beat before heading off into a kinda Beach Boys/Surf groove. If you are hoping for something that actually sounds like 70s Alice Cooper this isn't really it, but it's a cool number if not a classic. There's some nice duel guitar playing which I think I heard is Michael Bruce and Nick Didkovsky of the 'Pretties For You NYC band. There's also a nice Mae West quote in there somewhere.
So that was the end of the playback. All in all most of the songs sounded promising with a couple of obvious stand outs, but as I say, I don't really feel I could call it based on just this first hearing. I'm looking forward to hearing everything properly.

Playback over, it was time for Alice to make his appearance at the back of the room, making his way down to the front while marvelling at the decor, and promptly tripping up, landing face first on the stone floor! At first I thought he was joking around but no it was for real. Luckily he seemed okay and made his way to the large 'throne' at the front of the room. Amusingly, if you look at the photos you'll see some latin writing above the chair which we were told actually translates as 'Very Big Chair'! Who said secret societies didn't have a sense of humour!
There followed a brief Q and A with Alice, most of which to be honest readers here will have heard before, but Alice is always a great interview so it's easy to just enjoy it. They covered a little background on the album recording, the guests, and the November UK shows with Dennis, Michael and Neal, confirming the basic setup will be the same as the recent Nashville reunion. Alice also took a few minutes out, unprompted, to mention the sadly missed Glen Buxton, praising him as a truly unique talent and character who he still misses to this day. The affection for his fallen friend was clear even after all these years.
A mention that the interviewer had been with Pink Floyds' David Gilmour earlier in the day (can I have his job!!) who had told him to say "hi" to Alice saying they went "way back" prompted the old Pink Floyd stories about the band with Syd Barrett staying with the original band for a few days back in the late sixties. All very cool.
After a few more questions from the assembled audience of radio and magazine journos everything wrapped up with photos and autographs for those who wanted them before Alice and Sheryl headed off, hand in hand, to the next interview or event he was probably late for!
All in all it was a very enjoyable evening, and I extend my thanks to Toby for the invite, and the lovely people at earMusic for being such friendly hosts and making me feel so welcome at their event. Now I just need the real album even more!

Phew, well with all that written up I should also mention Alice's was up and about again first thing this morning, appearing on 'The Chris Evans Breakfast Show' again on BBC Radio 2, this time in person along with various other guests including Steve Winwood who plays a few songs live in the studio. This interview was much more disjointed then yesterdays ones, being that Alice was just one of four or more guests on air at the same time, but you can listen again now on the Radio 2 site.

Chris Moyles Show This Morning

Alice appeared on 'The Chris Moyles Show' on London's 'Radio X' early this morning for a long 45 minute interview which, while covering a lot of the normal stories, was a cut above the norm. Moyles had done his research and the result is well worth listening to, which you can do now here. Alice appears around 1.45 into the show. The interview was also broadcast live on facebook.
Alice later appeared on Planet Rock, which I missed as I was listening to the Moyles interview! The replay should appear here shortly or is on facebook.

Original Band To Perform Mini-Set on UK Dates

AC.Com has confirmed that Dennis Dunaway, Neal Smith and Michael Bruce will be joining Alice Cooper for a mini-set during the forthcoming UK shows in November, similar to the recent reunion in Nashville. The official text goes as follows:
"On May 14th, 2017 following Alice Cooper’s customary execution via guillotine on stage at his Nashville concert, fans were treated to something rarely seen since 1973. The stage went dark and original band members, bassist Dennis Dunaway, guitarist Michael Bruce and drummer Neal Smith reunited to perform a five song mini-set of their classic hits with Alice.
This followed the recent announcement that his forthcoming album – Paranormal, out July 28th on earMUSIC – will include two new recordings written and recorded by the original line-up (“Genuine American Girl and “You And All Of Your Friends”).
Now, Alice announces that the three members of the original Alice Cooper band will join him on tour in the UK, returning to these shores 46 years after they first shocked and enthralled us on their historic 1971 tour.
In Nashville, they were joined by current band member Ryan Roxie filling in for the late Glen Buxton on guitar. The band ripped through “I’m 18,” “No More Mr Nice Guy,” “Muscle of Love,” “Billion Dollar Babies” and then closed with “School’s Out,” bringing back current band members – drummer Glen Sobel, bassist Chuck Garric, and guitarists Nita Strauss and Tommy Henriksen for a grand finale."
UPDATE: Alice has posted a short video of the announcement on instagram.

Australian Shows Upgraded

According to Noise11 there are two changes to the Australian tour dates due to ticket demand. The Melbourne show has been moved from the Evonne Goolagong Arena to the Rod Laver Arena, about twice the size, and the Brisbane Convention Center show will now take place at the Brisbane Entertanment Center. Presumably all original tickets will remain valid.

Some people may have seen a viral video doing the rounds on facebook recently of the young guy, Johnny Crow, who sadly lost his father just before his 16th birthday, only to discover his father had put his birthday present away for him before he died... his dream guitar! Well, to prove there are still good people in this world members of social media site Reddit wanted to do something and together raised over $16,000 for the kid, to go towards guitar lessons, strings an everything else he might need to go with his fathers present and one member also got him another guitar! The reason I report this particular story is that another of Johnny's birthday presents was apparently tickets to go see Alice Cooper. On seeing this Alice Cooper guitarist Nita Strauss contacted the family and arranged for aftershow meet and greet passes for Johnny to meet Alice himself at the show. Way to go Nita.

The Daily Emerald and Westword have new interviews with Alice.

The single is officially released tomorrow.
UPDATE: EarMusic have just uploaded a short teaser video of the song here.

Paranoiac Personality Single Due June 9th.

According to a post on Blabbermouth 'Paranoiac Personality', the first single from new album 'Paranormal', will be officiialy released on Friday June 9th. That suggests that Alice will be playing the single on 'Nights With Alice Cooper' the same day or possibly just before. The article also suggests that just two songs with the original band made the album, but this could be an error as previous press has stated it will be three songs (with other material on the bonus disc).

Blabbermouth also has live footage from Nita Strauss's new band 'We Start Wars' at their live debut in West Hollywood ,CA last week.

Sonoma News has an article about Tom Silberkleit, who claims to hold the rights to the 1975 'Welcome To My Nightmare' Wembley concert film on which his father was a producer.

In all likelyhood Alice will play all the album in the run up to the July 28th release date, as he did for 'Welcome 2 My Nightmare' and the Hollywood Vampire's album.

In the 'strange collectables' catagory this week we have a framed napkin 'kissed' and autographed by Alice, Dennis, Neal and Michael being auctioned for charity by Manic Panic on behalf of 'Cancerland'.

Entertainment Weekly has a clip from the 'Hired Gun' movie showing Alice chatting about the importance of hiring the best musicians which also includes clips of Nita and Jason Hook.

Kane Roberts ha announced that Alice popped into the studio recently to record a duet for Kane's forthcoming new album. He has a gofundme campaign going to finance a video for the album and you can help out here. He's half way to his goal already!

Alice is at MegaCon 2017 in Orlando this weekend with a host of other stars including Meat Loaf and Tim Curry. The event is on until tomorrow at the Orange Country Convention Center.

Tucson.com has a couple of quotes from Alice.

Manchester

Alice Cooper has posted the following on facebook about the horrific events last night in Manchester: "My heart goes out to the people of Manchester and all of the UK. Manchester is one of the heart and soul cities of the UK, and having been there many, many times over the past 40+ years, I've gotten to know the city and the people there pretty well. I cannot pretend to know or even imagine the pain of the parents, brothers, sisters and other family members and friends of the innocent victims of this, these mostly young music fans having just enjoyed the concert. But I know that the people there will stand together and stay strong."
Alice has of course played the Manchester Arena several times, and is due to return there on November 15th.

Alice and Tommy Henriksen turned up with Ken Hensley (ex-Uriah Heep) in Krasnodar, Russia on May 20th as part of the 'Stairway To Heaven' charity concert. From the video it appears to be Hensley's show until about an hour in when first Tommy, and then Alice (in full make up and costume), appear on stage and preceed to take the band through 'Under My Wheels', 'No More Mr Nice Guy', 'Be My Lover', 'I'm Eighteen' and 'School's Out'. It all sounded really good and well rehearsed as well!

Meanwhile, Nita Strauss was at the Rock On The Range festival in Columbus, OH playing the US national anthem. The event didn`t go quite to plan though, as just as she was about to take the stage the venue was evacuated due to an incoming storm. "I was literally on the Rock on the Range stage with my guitar in my hands, ready to play the National Anthem with the Marine color guard... and they shut the whole place down for a storm". Obviously someone heard that Hurricane Nita was in town and was taking no chances! Lucky the storm passed without incident and Nita got her chance!

Dennis Dunaway has posted a report of the Nashville shows from his perspective, which you can read at DennisDunaway.com. Steel Notes Magazine has part two of their epic interview with Dennis online now here.

Roxie 77 will be playing a show next Saturday May 27th at midnight at the 'International Pop Overthrow Stockholm. More details here.

Chris Cornell R.I.P.

Most of you will probably have already sen the sad news yesterday that Chris Cornell, frontman of Soundgarden and Audioslave, as well as co-writer/performer on 'The Last Temptation', passed away unexpectedly in his hotel room shortly after leaving the stage in Detroit. I only saw Cornell live once at a rainy Hyde Park festival show with Aerosmith, where during his hour long set he wiped the floor with the headliners with ease. Such a great lose to music. Alice posted the following late last night:
"‘Chris Cornell, in our circle, was known as “The Voice” because he had the best voice in rock and roll. I was lucky enough to write and record two songs with him. His death comes as a total shock to all of us. 'Black Hole Sun' will live on as a classic, and his is a true legacy of rock and roll."
Nita Strauss posted the following: "Superunknown was one the first albums I had as a kid that really had an impact on the way I thought about my life. Shortly after I started listening to this, I got my first guitar and everything changed. Soundgarden was one of those bands that I kept missing, being out of town... I was going to see them for the first time tomorrow. What a huge, huge loss this is for the music world... Let's all celebrate Chris Cornell's amazing voice today by listening to all the music he made that did so much for all of us. #RIP"
Chuck Garric: "We are so saddened by the sudden death of Chris Cornell. Such an amazing talent, beautiful voice and poet! His words, music and concerts spoke to us. LOUD/LOVE."

GratefulWeb have a review of the Nashville shows with some great photos of the original band on stage together. MusicCityNashville also has a report. ColumbusUnderground has photos and words on the Columbus Show.

Eddie Trunks interview with Alice from last week has now appeared on YouTube and you can hear it here. There's also a short interview at Long Island Weekly.

Nita Strauss talks to AXS about her new band 'We Start Wars'

Reunion Day 2

The 'Music Biz 2017' show last night was reportedly an even better performance then Sunday's show, and longer! After receiving their award from Bob Ezrin the band stormed through 'I'm Eighteen', 'Under My Wheels', 'Billion Dollar Babies', 'No More Mr Nice Guy', 'Muscle Of Love' and 'School's Out'. You can check out some videos, including Bob's speech, on the STUK facebook page courtesy of Andrew Clark.

Alice appears to have regular column in the new 'Planet Rock' magazine that has just launched in the UK. The column is called 'Nights Out With Alice Cooper' and in the first installment Alice talks about John Lennon.

PopularCultureCast has a review from the Columbia show.

Lastly, Calico Cooper has just posted a brilliant video to mark Chuck Garric's birthday! It's a spoof of Beasto Blanco's 'I Rise' video featuring a lot of familiar faces! Check it out below.

Nashville Reunion

So the moment everyone had been waiting for arrived. A black curtain dropped to reveal a giant 'Billion Dollar Babies' backdrop behind Michael, Neal and Dennis on stage together again for their own mini-set at the end of the normal Alice show. Neal had a second kit set up on a riser behind Michael on the left, with Dennis and Roxie (standing in for Glen again) on the right, and after a brief intro launched into their first hit single, 'I'm Eighteen' with Alice appearing at the back of the stage next to Neal. 'Billion Dollar Babies' followed, then 'No More Mr Nice Guy' and 'Muscle Of Love' before they were rejoined by Chuck, Nita, Tommy and Glen for the climatic 'School's Out' with balloon's, confetti and explosions to bring the show to a close. They sounded fantastic going by the videos and seemed to be having a great time! Let's hope it happens again soon!

More Paranormal Info

According to an article at Planet Rock 'Paranormal' will be released on a 2CD Digipak, 2LP, Limited Box Set and Digital formats. The 12 track main album will come with a bonus 'mini-album' featuring three tracks by the original band (Alice, Dennis, Neal and Michael) plus "carefully selected live recordings". 'Paranormal' was produced by Bob Ezrin of course.
No more details yet as to what the differences may be. The article also mentions Deep Purple's Roger Glover can be added to the guest list that already included Michael Bruce, Neal Smith, Dennis Dunaway, Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top) and Larry Mullens Jr (U2). Alice has also mentioned two song titles: "I've Fallen In Love & I Can't Get Up" and "I Wanna Be A Genuine American Girl".

New short interviews have appeared at Shreveport Times, and Tulsa World.

RETSAF

Alice Cooper joined Eddie Trunk yesterday in Tulsa for a chat. It should be online somewhere soon, I'll add a link if I find it. TulsaWorld has a short piece about the interview.  He also called into Q96FM to talk about 'Billion Dollar Babies' and spoke to the Durant Daily Democrat.

Paranormal?

Alice was on 'The Mad Rock Morning Show' on Mad Rock 102.5 a couple of days ago and you can listen to the interview here. During the show he talked about various things including the new album, which he said will be called 'Paranormal'!
After a little searching I found the following that appears to be from a new Australian interview with 'May The Rock Be With You'.
"Well I’ve got a new album coming out in July and it’s called ‘Paranormal’ and it’s Bob Ezrin and I, Bob is producing. Larry Mullen is playing drums on it from U2, that’s a whole different thing, Billy Gibbons plays on one of the songs, from ZZ Top, and then it’s really all stuff that Bob and I just decided we’re going to do an album of stuff that we like. So it goes all over the place but it’s still a guitar rock album, we decided no story-line in this one, the songs all have a story but there’s no connecting sort of string that connects the songs all together. So that’s why we called it ‘Paranormal’ it’s sort of other than normal for us."

The current Alice Cooper band had a surprise guest at their club show on Monday at 'The Nick' in Birmingham, AL and it wasn't the one you maybe could have expected. Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen joined the band for a few songs in what by all reports was a storming show. You can check out video on Youtube.

Scott Friedlander has posted lots of excellent photos from last weeks 'Pretties For You In NYC' show with Dennis Dunaway.

Minnesota Troubles

Alice seems to have been caught up in a story about a little old lady in Minnesota who is objecting to the upcoming show there. Apparently she claims that during a recent concert at the Vetter Stone Amphitheater she registered decibels at her home, which is extremely unlikely unless she lives inside the venue in front of the speakers! She also claims to have " looked up the lyrics" and doesn`t think "it’s wise for our community to have to listen to foul language" which raises a few questions considering there's no foul language in Alice Cooper lyrics! South Minnesota News has video.
Alice hit facebook to respond: "Across the river from my #Mankato gig (June 9th, Vetter Stone Amphitheater, tickets on sale now) is a woman who hates the noise generated by shows. She says she experienced 110db at her home during Nelly's recent performance. Now, noise of that magnitude would annoy me too. But sound doesn't travel that well over long distances, so 110db at her home, across the river... That doesn't sound like an accurate number unless the audience at Nelly's show had their spleens ruptured by the loudest show on record (encore!).
We carry decibel meters, and according to my audio guys 110db is a number you'd see inside the venue at the sound board, but the laws of physics dictate it would spread and dissipate over that distance. 110db at her house sounds like a stretch unless she happened to meter the concert sound while 1,000 cats were meowing in her home at exactly the same time...
That seems SUPER unlikely given the circumstances so I'll give her the benefit of the doubt. I'm a "Nice Guy" after all. I guess I COULD have my snake swim over some earplugs... It's the least I could do."

In slightly more serious news Dennis Dunaway and Al Bouchard will be taking part in this years 'Joe Hurley's All Star Irish Rock Review' at the Highline Ballroom in New York City on March 11th. Tickets are available now.

Music therapy reduces the effects of lead poisoning on functional, behavioral, and cognitive skills.    The “Remember the Child” Concert honors the memory of legendary guitarist and songwriter, Dick Wagner, renowned for his lead guitar and songwriting with Alice Cooper, Lou Reed, Aerosmith, Kiss, and Peter Gabriel, and his wildly popular early bands, The Frost and the Bossmen. Wagner co-wrote more than 100 songs with Cooper, including "Only Women Bleed," "I Never Cry," “You and Me,” and Welcome to My Nightmare, along with mega-hits for other artists. In his lifetime, Wagner donated his talent generously to benefit the lives of children, vets and the homeless. As Dick tells us, “There is more love in the human heart than can ever be given away.”  
Celebrity-studded Live and Silent Auctions will feature autographed music and sports memorabilia, including guitars signed by The Hollywood Vampires (Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper, and Joe Perry), Mark Farner, Kid Rock, Suzi Quatro, Alice Cooper, Sports Celebrities, Balloon rides, and more.
CONCERT DETAILS:  • March 24, 2017, Doors Open 5:30pm. MotorCity Casino, Sound Board, Detroit, MI 48201 • Tickets $25, $75, $120, $150 www.dwrtc.org/tickets  (800) 745 3000 or (313) 309-4700   • VIP $120 includes Meet & Greet, 2 Drinks, Priority seating, Gift Bags.

Beasto Blanco, Damon Johnson and Alice in Nashville

Beasto Blanco played a storming show in Nashville last night with a few surprises. The show opened with local band Denman, before Damon Johnson took the stage with his solo band. Damon's later guest appearance with Beasto Blanco of course wasn`t entirely a surprise. Beasto (minus Chuck) and Damon performed Thin Lizzy's 'Jailbreak' before Chuck returned and they started up 'No More Me Nice Guy' which saw Alice himself (in Nashville working on the new abum) join them on stage! They continued through 'Under My Wheels', 'I'm Eighteen' and closed with 'School's Out' which featured yet another guest, Lzzy Hale of Halestorm.
UPDATE: Check out some cool photos at Nashville Scene.

Nita Strauss Releases New Song/Video

Nita Struass has released a new video for the instrumental "Pandemonium" from the 'She Rocks, Vol.1' compilation being put together by Steve Vai and set to be released on January 20th.
Nita says: "As you guys may or may not know by now, for the past year or so I've been focusing on writing and putting my band together, and while I always thought about making a solo album, I thought my energy would be better spent right now focusing on giving the band my all and making those songs as great as they could be.
But whenSteve Vai asked if I'd be a part of this compilation, you better believe I jumped at the chance!!!! I've always loved instrumental guitar music, and to step into this world for the first time and get to do it on 'Favored Nations Entertainment' alongside the other badass girls on the She Rocks album, is an honor and a privilege.
I'm extremely grateful to Steve Vai, Brad Tolinski and Laura B. Whitmore for including me on this compilation!! And I have a feeling this isn't the last instrumental music I'll be writing."

New Show - Augusta

Alice Cooper will play the Bell Auditorium in Augusta, GA on April 30th. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 10AM.
There are also reports Alice will be returning to the 'Rock In Rio' festival in Brazil in September but this is yet to be confirmed.

A new Sky Arts (UK) series called 'Urban Myths' is set to feature an episode based around the famous meeting with artist Salvador Dali. The series has courted controversy already by casting a white actor to play Michael Jackson. While the title of the show suggests that the stories covered are untrue, in fact the aim of the show is to retell famous stories that are both true and untrue.

Alice Returns to Wacken

Alice Cooper has been announced as performing at the 2017 Wacken Open Air festival in Germany. The exact day hasn`t been released but the festival runs between August 3rd and August 5th and as there is already a show in Hungary on the 3rd , that obviously leaves August 4th or 5th.

Alice And Shep at Pollstar Live

It's all been a little quiet this week since the last show announcements but here's a couple of things worth reporting:

Alice and Shep are set to be keynote speakers at 'Pollstar Live 2017!' which takes place in Los Angeles between January 31st and February 2nd, and it looks like they will appear on February 1st. The title of their event is "Shep Gordon and Alice Cooper: A 47 Year Conversation" so sounds like a repeat of the Bootleg Theater event a few weeks ago. The industry event is aimed at the Concert industry.

Epiphone Guitars feature Ryan Roxie and the Epiphone guitars he's been using on stage this past year. Expect more from this partnership in the coming year.

Neal Smith's movie "Desolation Angeles/Rise of the BOAS" gets it's world premiere on December 28th at the Bijou Theatre (275 Fairfield Ave.) in Bridgeport, CT. Admission free although a donation is encouraged. Quote: Smith wrote the title song for the film and plays a ruthless Russian mob boss in a full-length black-and-white production based on morality issues rooted in classical Greek mythology."

Steve and Karen Hunter have created a new 'GoFundMe' page where you can pledge your support for Steve's forthcoming new album, entitled 'Before The Lights Go Out'. The campaign features many of the usual incentives, as well as a few extra special ones like Tommy Henriksen's stage pants, and a signed Jason Becker guitar pedal!
To further the fund raising (which also helps with Steve's bills now he can no longer tour or work without assistance) there is an Ebay auction for a one-of-a-kind 'Loic Le Pape Mosteel J.Ramone tribute guitar'. The instrument has been donated by Tommy Henriksen, who played it at this years Christmas Pudding show, and is signed by many of the guests at that show including Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, Joe Perry, Sammy Hagar, Tommy Henriksen, and Bob Ezrin, as well as Steve himself. The auction has about a day to run so be quick if you are interested!

New Show - Sweden

Alice Cooper is returning to the Grona Lund in Stockholm, Sweden on July 27th. Admission comes free with entry to the park so presumably you can buy advanced park tickets now.
UPDATE: There is also a show at Liseberg amusement park in Gothenburg on July 26th.

I've been having a few computer problems here (basically my laptop died on me) so you may have seen coverage of the Xmas pudding show already, but from what I can tell it was again a huge success with the Hollywood Vampires (with Glen Sobel on drums) headlining with a set that opened with 'Raise The Dead', ran through many of the songs from the album, and closed with Run, Rudolph, Run'.
You can read a full review courtesy of AZ Central, while Phoenix New-Times has lots of photos and a review of their own. They also have photos from CO-OP's CD launch show, last Friday during which Alice joined the band for 'I'm Eighteen' and 'School's Out'.
