Pudding News
This years Xmas Pudding show bill will feature California Transit Authority, Damon Johnson and Whiskey Falls, Jordin Sparks, Flo and Eddie, Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels, Mike Black, Jack Wilson, Rock Demarco (Fast hand painter), Roger Cline and The Peacemakers, Destiny Dancers (Sheryl Cooper's dancers) and of course Alice with more acts to be added.
(Thanks PsychoPat)

A few news sites including PR-inside.com and, of course, ContactMusic, seem to have picked up on the fact Alice will use the gallows on the forthcoming UK dates stating that it's the first time since 1988 that the stunt has been performed. Obviously they didn't bother to research and discover that he's been using it since the tour started back in June.
In fact ContactMusic have surpassed themselves in another story. Having reported a couple of days ago that Alice called Ozzy Osbourne "a joke" (he didn't say anything of the sort) they are now running a story saying he's slammed Sharon Osbourne using exactly the same quote, which doesn't even mention Sharon! 

You can check out Ju Juwsters photos from the Houston show here.

Well known rock journalist Martin Popoff has a new book out. Entitled "Ye Olde Metal 1972-1974" it features chapters on "billion Dollar Babies" and "Welcome To My Nightmare" with quotes from Alice, Dennis Dunaway, Neal Smith and Dick Wagner amongst others. It's a limited edition of 1000 and can be obtained from www.martinpopoff.com.

To support Alice Cooper's Solid Rock Foundation, Sonja, who's pen name Cecille Ravencraft was made up by Alice on his radio show "Nights With Alice Cooper", signed a copy of her horror novel "The Center of the Spiral" to auction it on Ebay, and to make this item a little more special she signed it with her own blood!
(Thanks Steef)

Anti-music has an article about Alice here.
