Enter The Confessional
From Jollyjon:
The Alice Cooper Allegedly Confessional first threw back its crushed loganberry curtains, plumped up its motheaten chesterfield and opened for business in 1997. We should like to think that since then many penitants have received a modicum of respite from the undoubted cranial dysfunction caused by the huge preponderance of their assimilated Cooper congeries. Now in late 2004 the confessional is back ready to pander to the growing number of Sickthings finding Alice out in the ether. Do you carouse, revel, gambol, wassail, caper, cavort, rollick and generally delight in the Alice Cooper terpsichorean muse ? You do? Oh good, we had a feeling you did. Feel free to confess your strange addictions, your annoying proclivities, your pleasureableness tendency , the huge preponderance of your assimilated Cooper congeries , the whole armamentarium of your Furnier devices and your desire to wallow in the whole Alice Cooper morass.

Check out the confession book [link=http://www.jollyjon.com/newconfess.htm]here

Eric Out (Temp) and Teddy In!!
Yesterday`s show as reported below featured the unusual sight of Alice playing a show with only one Guitarist. This is the forst time this ever happening before. So what`s the deal. Well, Eric is indeed off the tour temporarily. He'll hopefully be back in September. However here`s the real scoop. Taking his place from Tuesday`s show in Columbus is the one and only Teddy Zig Zag!! Nice to see him back in the band. Its assumed he`ll be playing keyboards although he does play a litle guitar and its not unheard of for Alice to switch a keyboard player to guitar for a short tour (Paul Taylor)

In other news I can confirm that the Snake/Heating Pad story that`s all over the place at the moment is basically true (it has some factual errors). The snake is fine and has already been replaced in the show by a new "big fat Boa".

Yet Another compilation
Amazon are listing yet another Alice Cooper compilation album, this time called "School's Out and Other Hits", for release on Sept. 14th. We can probably guess the tracklisting within a couple of songs (you never know though) but the fact that its on Rhino Records makes it an official release. No track liting yet or cover though.
Its only £6.99 and you can order it from [link=http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0002VETS6/sickthingsuk-21]here

Alice and Politics in print (US)
The recent Alice political quotes, as reported yesterday, have appeared in todays copy of the Washington Post. Its probably in other papers as well so US fans should keep their eyes open.

Alice and politics
When I first saw the following a few days ago I didn`t think much of it but it seems to be snowballing and being picked up but various US papers so...
Alice has spoken out against artists who are mixing politics and rock and roll. It seems a bunch of politically interested musicians, including Bruce Springsteen and REM are planning a series of concerts in support of John Kerry, who is running fo the US presidency. Well, Alice has branded them traitors to rock'n'roll, while siding with current president Bush, and its all getting a lot of press.

Anyway, that`s the background and here are a couple of examples of what`s being said. The first is from [link=http://www.woai.com/news/local/story.aspx?content_id=E99A8C98-8000-4387-8E49-6076E66A251A] San Antonio's WOAI which seems to get the main quotes complete.
The second is a similar article, this time from [link=http://worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=40127]Worldnetdaily and adds a slightly different slant leading as it does with the heading "Alice Cooper: Anti-Bush acts treasonous morons" which is maybe not quite what Alice had in mind!! It also has an extra quote regarding some of the acts siding with Kerry.
