More on Biloxi
Latest news indicates the Hard Rock Casino sustained 50-75% damage and will need to be completely rebuilt. Reportedly, the guitar out front, said to be the "worlds largest" still stands. The casinos sit on barges in the gulf. More than one now rests in downtown Biloxi. 285,000 without power. 80 dead. Most areas still "unreachable."

Biloxi Problems
Reports are reaching me that the Hard Rock Cafe and Casino in Biloxi, where Alice Cooper was scheduled to play on October 2nd, has been destroyed by Hurricane Katrina which is currently causing destruction in the area. According to a local news item the venue will be rebuilt next year. This obviously means that Alice's show will have to be rescheduled or canceled. More info if/when I get it.
(Thanks Dwight Fry)

US TV!
Alice Cooper will be on the '[link=http://www.cbs.com/latenight/latelate/]Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson' on September 15th. What I've seen suggests he will both perform and be interviewed this time. The show is on CBS Weeknights 12:35AM ET/PT

The new OFFICIAL release date for the 'Good To See You Again, Alice Cooper' DVD in the USA is November 8th. This doesn't mean the UK date below is wrong but could suggest it will be delayed here to match the US date closer.

The song 'Dirty Diamonds' appears to have been released as a promo single in German as copies have started appearing on Ebay.

[link=http://www.metrotimes.com/editorial/story.asp?id=8108]Detroit Metro News has a short piece on Alice including mentiosn for the album and five 'little things' that annoy him.

Another 'Dirty Diamonds' review is up at [link=http://www.rhino.com/rzine/StoryKeeper.lasso?StoryID=528]Rhino.com

Reminder: Alice Cooper will be the guest on [link=http://www.rocklineradio.com/]Rockline TONIGHT. Rockline is a US radio show and can be heard on a variety of stations and netfeeds around the USA (8.30-10pm Pacific).

Erik was kind enough to spend a lot of time answering questions, including those asked by members of the message board, providing some cool stories and insight into a period in Alice Cooper history that splits fans and is often ignored in biographies and other interviews. He chats about his early days with Flo And Eddie, his Alice Cooper years (at length), and his current project [link=http://www.soniadada.com]Sonia Dada. Big thanks to Erik for taking time to chat to me.

Terje has put up some photos from the Oslo show [link=http://home.online.no/~tembla/pics/alice.htm]here. The setlist for the show is the same as the rest of the tour so still only two 'Dirty Diamonds' songs in the set. Hopefully more will be added for the US shows!

New VH-1 Live Show
According to [link=http://www.thedailyjournal.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20050804/LIFESTYLE/508040321/1024]Live Journal Alice Cooper will be the subject of one episode of a new VH-1 show called 'Classic Decades Rock Live!'. The show appears to feature a classic band (the first show is The Doors) with guests performing with them with all the shows taking place at [link=http://www.trumptaj.com]Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, NJ. No airdate has been set yet.
The series is the brainchild of music-industry veteran Barry Summers, the program's executive producer.
"I realized there's not a lot of live concerts on TV anymore, like the good, old-fashioned days of Don Kirschner's Rock Concert and Midnight Special," said Summers, referring to a couple of rock music programs of the pre-MTV era. "But my concept was to take the legends of rock 'n' roll, soul and R&B and team them up with some of today's hottest young artists who were influenced by classic rock. We wanted to do something different, something you couldn't find anywhere else. Anybody can shoot a band on tour."
The idea obviously struck a chord with the VH1 Classics folks.
"The first order is for 12 episodes, averaging about one new concert a month," said Summers. "They'll all be shot with seven cameras, in (high-definition) with Dolby 5.1 SurroundSound. Each will be a two-hour concert that will be edited down to one hour."

The Sharpest Pain And Other News
It has now been confirmed that the bonus track 'The Sharpest Pain' is included on the Australian release of 'Dirty Diamonds' although it isn't actually listed on the cover. It's track 14 but only 13 are listed on the cover. AmazonUS list an "import" version of the album but I've had no confirmation this is the Australian version yet.

Australian Video
Thanks to Nick I now have video of the two recent Australian Alice Cooper TV Appearances. Unfortunatly due to technical limitations this end the video captures aren't perfect, and added to that the length of the appearances means I had to compress the files more then I would normally like.. but at least these should be good enough for everyone to get an idea of what happened and hear what Alice had to say. certainly worth watching!!
The first show is "[link=http://www.alicec00per.com/video/greatoutdoors.wmv]The Great Outdoors" in which Alice shows a presenter around Phoenix, including Cooperstown and The Diamondbacks ballpark. And the second is a long interview from "[link=http://www.alicec00per.com/video/enoughrope.wmv]Enough Rope". This second one is rather smaller then the first simply because of the length of the clip so I appolgise for lack of quality.
As always dialup users are suggest to download rather then stream the video.
