Vampires Are Go

The Hollywood Vapires tour begun this weekend with a few warm up shows in North America before they head to Europe next week. The mainstream press seems more interested in Johnny Depp's new hairstyle then the music, so not much to cover there, however the new set list has a few new original songs included including 'The Boogieman Surprise' and 'Bushwackers', while there a few new covers as well - AC/DC's 'The Jack' (with the clean lyrics), The Who's 'Baba O'Riley', Bowie's 'Heroes' and 'People Who Died' by the Jim Carroll Band - the last two sung by Depp. Other then that they run through 'Im Eighteen' and 'School's Out' for Alice, 'Combination' and 'Sweet Emotion' for Perry, and the first album original tracks 'Dear Drunk Friends', 'Raise The Dead' and 'Bad A I Am' along with other covers from last year.

Ryan Roxie has a week of events running up to the official release of 'Imagine Your Reality' this Friday. To start with there's the amusing new video for 'Live And Die In L.A.' which you can see below. Then Roxie will take over the BandItRock radio station on Wednesday between 9 and 10pm local time (repeated Saturday). BandItRock will also run a "voting battle"  today and tomorrow on facebook and instagram which should go up soon featuring the new video against a band called 'H.E.A.T..

New Roxie Single and Album Pre-order

Ryan Roxie is set to release his latest album ‘Imagine Your Reality’ on May 25th, ahead of this he has released the latest single from the album – ‘To Live And Die In L.A.’ You can now pre-order the physical CD, as well as the already announced vinyl editions. See below for links.

Ryan Roxie about the single – To Live And Die In L.A. – “The straight ahead riff-rock guitar part, the sardonic lyrics and over-all angst were originally concocted years ago, but I could never get the balance of sarcasm & anger just right…until now. This song was actually very therapeutic in helping me let go and make certain situations in my life ‘water under the bridge’…And in the end, ‘To Live & Die in L.A. was too good a phrase to just be a cop/action/suspense movie”

The upcoming album “Imagine Your Reality” (Only Physical May 25th) Digital TBA – is Ryan’s first official solo release and sees him joined by other noteworthy musicians, including a collaboration with CHEAP TRICK’s Robin Zander on the track “California Man” to the un-sugarcoated tale of life in La-La Land with “To Live And Die In LA”

Ryan says: “With this album, I think we kept the spirit and power of the 3.5-minute rock song intact as well as keeping the dream of guitar-driven music alive and well. I can’t wait for people to experience my reality.” “Imagine Your Reality” was produced by Kristoffer Folin,Tommy Henriksen and Jon Bordon. It was recorded and mixed at Purple Skull Studios in Stockholm, Sweden.

Alice Cooper, Superstar

Well, what can you say about Alice's performance last night in the live production of 'Jesus Christ Superstar'. I think that final mic drop said it all. Walk on.... Sing your song... steal the show... job done. Apparently "King Herod" was even trending on twitter after his appearance!
For those who missed it Alice's performance was up on Youtube within minutes of it being aired but unsurprisingly that has since been removed. There are versions up there though if you seach, or check out the news articles listed below.
Unlike many people I'm not very familiar with the musicial. I had the original Ian Gillan recording (because it was Gillan), but don`t recall ever really listening to it, and I'd never seen the film or any other production. I'd also never heard if either of the other leads before, so my interest was solely in Alice's participation. I wasn`t even going to stay up and watch it, but turns out Alice was so good it was worth sitting through endless adverts to see it live. And talking of adverts, there was even an advert for a local AC show on the feed I watched, and the occasional shot of Alice (and Kyler) backstage as well, which was cool to see.
I thought many of the youngsters in the cast performed excellently, especially Sarah Bareilles as "Mary" and Ben Daniels as  "Pontius Pilate", but the biggest weak link by far was Legend, who, while having a good voice, was constantly upstaged in both acting (especially) and singing by almost everyone else on the stage with him! The crucifixion scene at the end was also extremely well done with full credit to the live director/editor for capturing it perfectly.
Anyway, on to the morning news reports. In fact this first one at PopCulture.com  turned up before the show even finished, raving about Alice's performance. You can also check out Billboard, Romper, Hollywood Life, WGN Radio (interview),  Variety, and EW.com although there are many others saying similar things.
All in all Alice should be proud of his performance, and it can`t help but raise his profile a little more going forward.

Superstar Tomorrow Night

There has been endless promotion in the last couple of days for tomorrow's 'Jesus Christ Superstar' Live TV broadcast on NBC. Most of the reports mention Alice only in passing, with Alice's recent Rolling Stone interview supplying the basis for any AC quotes, so there's no need to list them all. He did appear on Kare11, and briefly on 12News which seems to be edited from a longer interview. Hollywood Life also have 'Five Things You May Not Know About Alice Playing King Herod', all of which you will know of course. The Daily Beast has a longer interview that mentions other things including Alice being in the studio with Dee Snider recording songs from the 'Guys And Dolls' musical!
'Jesus Christ Superstar' airs on NBC in the US tomorrow at 8PM Eastern Time.

The Sarasota Post has a short review of the Clearwater show.

According to various reports both Matt Sorun and Robert DeLeo have dropped out of the forthcoming Hollywood Vampires shows. No replacements have so far been announced. Alice is still suggesting the the next Vampires album with be original material. Let's hope so.

Ryan Roxie - Imagine Your Reality

I've had to sit on this announcement for sooo long... but finally we have the full details about 2018s 'Album of the Year'. On May 25th Cargo Records will release the new Ryan Roxie solo album 'Imagine Your Reality', while Bellyache Records is already taking pre-orders for four limited edition coloured vinyl versions of the album with special die-cut sleeves.

'Imagine Your Reality' features guest appearances by Robin Zander (Cheap Trick), Tommy Henriksen, Glen Sobel, and Teddy Zig-Zag amongst others, and includes the following titles: 'Big Rock Show', 'Over And Done''California Man' (with Robin Zander), 'To Live And Die In LA', 'Uh Oh Song', 'Me Generation', 'Look Me In The Eye', 'Hearts In Trouble', 'Nevermind Me' and stunning version of Coldplay's 'God Put A Smile Upon Your Face' which is so much better then the original!

Says Roxie "Cheap Trick were a major influence in my musical upbringing. Both Robin Zander and Rick Nielsen have joined us onstage at Alice Cooper shows in the past and have always been the most quintessential rock stars. In my opinion, Robin Zander's voice is the definition of rock 'n' roll, so having him guest vocal on 'California Man' definitely ticks a box off my 'greatest moments in rock 'n roll' list."

"Imagine Your Reality" continues Roxie's legacy of creating infectiously melodic songs and straight-ahead, no-nonsense rock riffs, and this time with more guitar than ever before. Ten tracks, all underlined by ten gleaming guitar solos. From the punk rock undertones of "Nevermind Me" to the un-sugarcoated tale of life in "La La Land (To Live And Die In LA)" to the superb Beatles-y/Oasis nod "Look Me In The Eye" - it's an uplifting big rock sound. Zander transforms "California Man" into the ultimate vintage-vibed, top-down, drive-in-the-sunshine rock 'n' roll anthem.

"With this album, I think we kept the spirit and power of the 3.5-minute rock song intact as well as keeping the dream of guitar-driven music alive and well. I can't wait for people to experience my reality."

'Imagine Your Reality' was produced and mixed by Kristoffer "Folle" Folin, Tommy Henriksen and Jon Bordon at Purple Skull Studios in Stockholm, Sweden.

In other news Alice's appearance on VintageTV is now up on their website to watch, and the 'Jesus Christ Superstar Live' soundtrack album appears to now have been delayed until early May according to Amazon.

Alice took part in a photo shoot for 'Jesus Christ Superstar' a few days ago and Social News XYZ have posted silent footage which features Alice.

Super Bowl Advert


Posted on 05 Feb 2018
Happy Birthday Alice!

It's February 4th and Alice Cooper has reached 70, with few signs that he will be slowing down in the near future.  The 'Paranormal Night with Alice Cooper' tour starts next month, followed by a new Hollywood Vampires album and tour, and hopefully another new Alice Cooper album will be in there sooner rather then later. Add all that too endless public appearances at charity events, award ceremonies and gold tournaments and it's hard to see when he ever takes a break. So Happy Birthday Alice, and come back to [insert you country of choice here here] soon!
On top of that, the NFL have kindly scheduled the Super Bowl on his mark the occasion, and if you watch the game in the US (they don't show the famous Super Bowl adverts outside the US) you'll see Alice pop up there as well, as he's apparently featured in an advert for 'Desert Financial Credit Union'. 

DW.com have a short article looking back at Alice's 70 years.

'Rock Talk with Mitch Lafon' on Westwood One this Monday has Mitch chatting to Michael Bruce.

Steve Hunter has posted a new video for 'Softtail Deuce' from his current 'When The Lights Go Out' album which you can see on his facebook page.

'2 Hours with Matt Pinfield' have posted an interview with Alice talking last year about 'Paranormal', the Vampires and the original band.  'Denny Dunaway'??

Nita Strauss Becomes Ibanez Signature Artist

Nita Strauss has been very busy this week at the annual NAMM music convention in Anaheim, CA making various apearances throughout the event, but the biggest moment for her was the announcement that she has become the first ever female Ibanez Signature artist. Nita has endorsed Ibanez guitars for years, but becoming a Ibanez signature artist obviously means a huge mount to her. So much that she streamed the announcement live on facebook yesterday and was almost crying when saw her signature 'Ibanez Jiva' guitar for the first time. You can check out the video on Nita's facebook page and the full specs on the new guitar will be posted shortly. Congratulations Nita!
Also at NAMM this weekend were Alice himself at the Sure Microphone stand, Michael Bruce and Tommy Henriksen.

The new Beasto Blanco 'Live In Berlin' CD is now out and has been arriving worldwide. It's excellent and highly recommended. Rockbladet.se have a new interview with Calico Cooper talking about Beasto and her career.

Tim Smith Appeal

Tim SmithI almost never post anything to this page that isn`t directly Alice Cooper related, but I hope you'll forgive me this once if I post about following.
People who know me probably know I'm a HUGE fan of UK band Cardiacs and have been since I first saw them back around 1983 playing small clubs around my area. 10 years ago Tim Smith, singer, guitarist and songwriter of Cardiacs suffered a catastrophic brain injury which left him in a wheelchair, unable to move or speak. Since then the people around him have been fighting the system to get Tim the help he needs but have now reached out for help. You can read the full story here, or the official statement here. A crowdfunding page has been set up, and reached it's initial goal in just 10 hours! But this amount only pays for things for three months, so the target has been raised and any donation would be appriciated. If you feel inclinded please read the story and donate even a small amount to help. Thank you. You can donate here.

Happy New Year

So it's a new year, and normally the first posting of the new year reports on the annual New Years Eve charity show in Hawaii, so I've been holding off a little waiting for the reviews or videos to appear, but so far I've seen nothing at all beyond a short clip of Steven Tyler's performance! So I'm not waiting any longer and here's a catch up on a few things that surfaced over the Xmas period.

Alice appeared on Dutch TV talking about 'How You Gonna See Me Now' which made the 'Top 2000 A GoGo', a list of the all time top 2000 songs in The Netherlands. You can see a video of it here. In total Alice had 4 entries in the chart starting with 'School's Out' at 757, followed by 'How You Gonna See Me Now' at 654, 'Poison' at 331, and finally 'Halo Of flies' at 268.

Alice appeared on Chris Jericho's 'Talk Is Jericho' radio show a while ago which you can now listen to here including some words about Glen Buxton and Lemmy.

Penny Black Music has new interviews with Dennis Dunaway, and Michael Bruce, as well as a review of the Birmingham show.

Alice was at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland recently and they have posted a short video of fans remembering their first Alice shows introduced by Alice himself.

BMI.com has a new interview with Alice as well based around his recent nomination to the 'Songwriter's Hall Of Fame'. The awards ceremony takes place on June 14th in New York City.

Black Velvet Magazine has a review of the recent Birmingham show in their latest issue which you can read online here. Just click on issue 95. Elsewhere in the magazine you'll also see a short article about SickthingsUK!

On Friday 5th January the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood will be showing a double header of the 'Welcome To My Nightmare' concert film and John Carpenter's 'Prince Of Darkness', which of course also features Alice.The show will be introduced by 'Prince of Darkness' actor Peter Jason.
