Cars and DVD's
As previously mentioned Alice had a car up for auction at the Barrett-Jackson event in Scottsdale at the weekend. This years car was a 1939 Lincoln Zephyr Custom painted up in teh style of the 'Billion Dollar Babies' album cover and complete with ATM machine in the boot that gave out Alice Cooper dollars. It sold for about $250,000. You can see pics of the car here. Next year Alice promises a Bus painted up in 'School's Out' style!

Eagle Vision's upcoming HD DVD release of 'Live at Montreux 2005' is coming out on the 22nd January in the UK and the 23rd in the USA. The HD DVD features a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 audio track as one of its sound options. This is apparently big news because DTS-HD Master Audio is a 100% identical representation of the
original master recording. So this sound option sounds as good as can possibly be achieved. The first time ever a 100% lossless sound option has been available on a Alice home video release. The DVD and Blu-ray both only feature standard "lossy" DTS 5.1 audio options.
You can pre-order this version of 'Live At Montreux' from AmazonUK and AmazonUSA now.
(Thanks Jayson)

A Dogs Life
Calico Cooper is featured in the upcoming February issue of 'K9 Magazine', the most read dog magazine in the UK. Says editor Ryan O'Meara "As soon as we found out she had a dog we jumped at the opportunity to do the interview. Most of our staff are huge Alice fans!" The mag also has a MySpace page here.
Here's an exclusive sneak preview of the interview:
Tell us about your dog.
Captain Jak is a rescue dog. He is the classic rags to riches story. He was found on the Pasadena Freeway, scared to death with one eye, a broken tail, and a wicked under-bite. Now he lives in a cushy 5 bedroom house in Los Angeles, has gained almost 4 pounds, and pretty much rules the place!
When did you get your first dog and can you remember what the feeling was like, early days, initial problems, fun etc?
My very first dog's name was Lestat. She was our family dog. She was a beautiful German Shepard, and was very maternal. I used to sleep under the Grand piano with her, and she treated me like her puppy. If i would wander too close to the pool, she would grab my dress with her teeth and gently tug me back toward the house! Once, while we were out of town, someone broke into our house in Los Angeles. Lestat, who was a gentle giant, had to attack the burglar to protect the place. The robber stabbed her in the shoulder with a screwdriver, and without batting an eyelash, she chased him out the front door and down Mullholand drive!
What are your current top 5 most listened to tracks on your iPod? 
Let me check, well, my i tunes SAYS my top tracks are...
Wake me Gently- Alice Cooper
I Want You- Fiona Apple Featuring Elvis Costello
Kiss Yourself Goodbye- Still Standing
Born To Raise Hell- Motorhead
Home Sweet Homicide- Wednesday 13
Tell us a secret from the Alice Cooper tour bus.
After all the blood and glitter on stage... we eat pizza and play poker all night, all while wearing funny hats/costumes, (i.e.. viking helmets and Graduation caps) and listening to the most obscure mix of music we can find. The soundtrack to West side story, various underground garage rock, old banjo country, and Bee Gee's lost tracks. We giggle and carry on like teenagers. Its kind of like a highschool sleepover... for 6 months straight.
(Thanks Ryan)

Happy New Year
A new year dawns with the promise of a new Alice album, book and tour in a few months via a statement on the new updated AliceCooper.com.
"Thanks to everyone that made it out to the Alice Cooper shows this past year. Alice will start working full steam ahead on a brand new album later in January and it should be out by this summer. Summer 2007 is also when Alice will hit the road yet again for another world tour that will continue through October. Stay tuned here or at the other usual suspects and sites for tour date info later in the year. Alice's new book "Golf Monster" will be coming out this year too. We'll see what other surprises pop up. Have a great new year from Alice Cooper!"

In a new exclusive interview Alice Cooper sound engineer Randy Meullier takes time out to chat about life on the road with Alice and what it takes to put on the show you see up on stage each night. Many people forget that without the road crew there would be no show and these guys work incredibly hard each day to make sure you get the best performance possible.
