More HoF
As is to be expected there has been a ton of press mentioning the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame nomination but most of it simply repeats the announcement and/or Alice's statement so I won`t try and list it all. Of more interest is some words from Neal Smith at Brave Words (with full interview to follow), in which he also mentions that the original band will be playing at this years Xmas pudding show, and Dennis Dunaway appearing on WJCU tonight at 8.30 EST on their 'Metal On Metal' show.

The Wall Street Journal also has a brief quote from Neal about the genesis of 'Black Juju'.

Alice will be doing a signing session when he's in Germany in November at the Saturn Markt. No date seems to be listed on the website but there is a video.

Calico Cooper was apparently at this years Eyegore awards in LA and is quoted at the Daily Titan.

Alice has donated an autographed guitar to the Arizona Farm Bureau charity auction.

The Fremont Street Experience in Las Vegas has an 'Alice and Ozzy" show running as part of their October Frightfest. The show runs three times a night from Tuesday to Saturday on the Main Street Stage and features the "music and stage antics of Alice Cooper And Ozzy Osbourne in a rocking tribute show"..

For anyone interested there is a STUK review of the new 'Theatre Of Death: Live At Hammersmith 2009' DVD/CD now up in the reviews section. It was well worth the wait (the DVD, not the review!).
