XM Greatest Hits Repeat
Thanks to Ryan for the following:
XM Radio will be replaying Alice Cooper's 'Then Again Live' show from back in November on XM Ch 200 at 2 AM Eastern Standard Time tonight (technically Tuesday morning). For anyone not familiar with this performance, it is Alice and his current band playing the entire Greatest Hits album in front of a live audience at XM studios.

A little bonus today as there doesn't seem to be a lot of news so far. My good friend Pete (Dean of Men) brought over a copy of the Zane Lowe Gonzo MTV2 appearance last night which I couldn't watch when it aired. So I've put it up now for all to see. Some nice album mentions in there. Click [link=http://www.alicec00per.com/video/gonzo.wmv]here to watch or download on dialups.

The Kumars
As forewarned Alice appeared on "The Kumars At No. 42" this evening on BBC1 in an appearance filmed in London a couple of weeks ago. Also on the show was comedy legend Ronnie Corbett who overseas fans may recall from the SkyPlus advert the pair did together last year.
The show is a weird sort of sitcom crossed with an interview show and something of an aquired taste but Alice came off well despite having to tell the chicken story yet again.
For the benefit of overseas fans you can watch the Alice segment of the show, available for a short time only, by clicking [link=http://www.alicec00per.com/video/kumars.wmv]here. Dial-up users would be advised to right click and "save as" but be warned it's a 10meg file this time as the clip is about 13 minutes in total.

Classic Rock
The new edition of Classic Rock has a short piece on Alice under the title "Alice In Warning Land: Cooper Employs Shock Tactics." Below is a quote about the new show:
Alice Cooper has a word of warning for anyone attending his November UK shows. "If I were in the first 20 rows, I wouldn't wear my best clothes," he told Classic Rock recently. "The show does have a tendency to spill into the audience a bit..."
Cooper, who releases a new album Dirty Diamonds in July will be supported by Twisted Sister, and he promises "a lot of fun" as well as a production that will keep changing - the staging, the costumes, the lights, the attitude, the mood - it gradually travels into "the bigger theatrical world of Alice - the psychodrama".

Ticket Tidbits and Sweden Golf
It seems the confusion over where Alice will be playing on September 2nd has resolved itself. Fanfire are now also listing the Madison, WI show with packages going on sale later today.

The Las Vegas show on the 17th of October will go on sale this saturday at 12pm from Ticketmaster. No mention of Cheap Trick on this one so far.

Also: Maria emails to say that Swedish Golfing magazine '[link=www.svenskgolf.se]Svensk Golf' is advertising an article on Alice in their next issue. The advert features a photo of Alice and the text: "There was a time when hardrocker Alice Cooper rather hung out with "Jack Daniels" than his family. When he woke up after hard partynights he threw up blood and cleaned his mout with whiskey. The lifestyle was almost killing him. Today Cooper plays golf
six days/week. This summer also in Sweden."

Also: New West Want You
I should have maybe included this a few days ago but New West Records, Alice's new North American label are looking for people to join their 'Street Team'. They want YOU to help promote the new album and be part of making it a success. All the details are at the [link=http://www.newwestrecords.com/streetteam.php]New West Street Team Site. Benefits seem to include special merchandise and possibly even show tickets. Many people complained that Spitfire didn't do enough. Now US fans can help in making 'Dirty Diamonds' a success!
There is already a forum open on the [link=http://www.newwestrecords.com/]New West site for fans to chat and street team members have a special area as well accessable once you join up.

Also Don'y forget Alice's appearance on 'The Kumars" tonight on BBC1 at 9.30pm (check for regional variations)

All Good Publicity

Thanks to Maggie for spotting that Alice performed at a special party for the Los Angeles Premier of 'Rock School' on the 24th. Also in attendance were Jon Anderson of Yes and Ex-Police drummer Stuart Copeland. Alice appears to have performed 'School's Out' at the party with the Rock School students. Photos of the event are available both at [link=http://www.wireimage.com]Wireimage and [link=http://editorial.gettyimages.com/MS_GINS/source/home/home.aspx?pg=1]GettyImage.

The album is now available through Amazon. It features Alice and the Students performing a new version of 'School's Out' as well as appearances by Ian Gillan (Deep Purple), Ann Wilson (Heart), Jon Anderson (Yes), Dave Mustaine(Megadeth) and Billy Idol. It can be bought from [link=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/redirect?tag=sickthingsuk-20&creative=9325&camp=1789&link_code=ur2&path=ASIN/B0009IW8OY/]AmazonUS or [link=http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0009IW8OY/sickthingsuk-21]AmazonUK now.

Also: Another minor story doing the round today. This one comes from something said on the Late Late Show a couple of nights ago (video below) and refers to the Keith Richards Blood storey. [link=http://www.contactmusic.com/new/xmlfeed.nsf/mndwebpages/alice%20longs%20for%20keith%20richards%20horror%20movie]Contact Music have it as follows:
ALICE COOPER has an idea for a great horror movie - about what happens with rock peer KEITH RICHARDS' used blood.

The Detroit, Michigan rock icon says he's amazed the likes of Richards and IGGY POP are still alive after years spent abusing their bodies, and suggests filmmakers should work on a concept about how they preserve their bodies.

Cooper, real name VINCE FURNIER, says, "Iggy shouldn't be alive at all... He's like an old baseball glove... and Keith Richards should have been dead years ago. Nobody can live through that.

"Of course, he gets new blood every year; he has a 15-year-old Swedish girl's blood in him right now.

"But there's a great horror movie there somewhere because where does his old blood go...? They have to drain it and dump it somewhere. I love that idea."

The full track list appears to be:

  1. Woman Of Mass Distraction

  2. You Make Me Wanna

  3. Perfect

  4. Dirty Diamonds

  5. Pretty Ballerina

  6. Sunset Babies (All Have Rabies)

  7. Zombie Dance

'Stand' is the title of the track previously released on the 'Unity' Olympics album earlier this year which featured rapper Xhibit. It's listed on the UK promo that has appeared.

Currently release dates are set as July 4th for Europe and August 2nd for North America although of course this could change.

The Late Late Show
As previously reported Alice appeared on the The Late Late Show with Craig Fergusson last night. It was an interview, not a performance, and he was on for 8-10 minutes. I haven't seen it yet being in the UK but it appears to have gone well although the host asked some of the same old questions yet again. No sign of 'Rock School' as predicted on the shows site and only passing reference to 'Dirty Diamonds'.
(thanks damiennalice and Devon)

Update: Watch [link=http://www.alicec00per.com/video/latelateshow2.wmv]here. Dial up users are recommended to right click and "save as" rather then watching online.

Dirty Diamonds is Coming!
Last night Alice previewed another new track from the forthcoming album 'Dirty Diamonds' on 'Nights With Alice Cooper'. The track is called 'Pretty Ballerina' and is in fact a cover of a Left Banke track from 1967. As usual a poll has been set up on the forum for you to say what you think of it if you heard it.
The US release of 'Dirty Diamonds' has been confirmed as August 2nd on New West Records. A Press release has been issued with lots of details about the album. Click below to read it.

Chicken Feed
In what seems to be a very quiet day news-wise there's little to report. As expected several more sources have taken up both the "Alice Begs for Bond Role" and "Michael Jackson" non-stories from yesterday. About the only thing I've seen of any note is a story in the [link=http://www.azcentral.com/12news/news/articles/MiddayRecipeAliceCooper05172005.html]Arizona Central which is actually just a recipe for 'Chicken Salad with Grapes and Carmelized Almonds'.

Today's Tidbits
A few sources are running a story about Alice wanting to be the next James Bond adversary. Nothing new really as he's been saying similar things for about 20 years but it was deemed interesting enough to get mentions in The Daily Mail newspaper today and online at [link=http://www.contactmusic.com/new/xmlfeed.nsf/mndwebpages/cooper%20begs%20for%20bond%20villain%20role]ContactMusic. Others will probably follow.
Another story doing the rounds today is related to Alice's comments on Michael Jackson. Basically the quote goes "He can’t possibly go to any jail that exists right now. My idea was that they build him a fantasy jail like Captain Hook’s ship because he’s so into this Peter Pan thing.” Again it seems that's interesting enough to be reported in several places including The Times and the New York Times!


Also: [link=http://www.marketwire.com/mw/release_html_b1?release_id=86711]Marketwire are running a press release from EagleRock announcing that the [link=http://www.eaglerockent.com]EagleRock will be releasing titles on "the hot new Universal Media Disc (UMD) format, and release selected catalog titles worldwide on UMD for play on the Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) game device." None of that means much to me but you can check the link for more info. It also appears that their site has some 1 minute mp4 samples from their old Alice Cooper releases. I couldn`t find them but JollyJon found [link=http://www.eaglerockent.com/PSP/M4V10001.mp4]
'School's Out' from 'Brutally Live' on there for anyone that hasn't heard it. However apparently this one is the full song and 28meg so dialup beware!

It's New West Records

While the date is officially unconfirmed, this is a month AFTER the previously quoted German release date. New West Records have a website [link=http://www.newwestrecords.com/home.php]here and appear to be predominatly a small country label so it does seem an odd match for Alice. Time will tell what they can do for him that Spitfire couldn't.

MTV Have Shock Revelation.
Yes, MTV have broken a story that NO ONE has ever heard before. No, really. In a current news story they are claiming [link=http://www.mtv.co.uk/mtv.co.uk/news/article.jhtml;jsessionid=UV34F1IUQTRZPQFIAIICFEWAVABBCIV0?articleId=30119070]Alice Cooper never killed a chicken!!. This shock revelation came about during the TRL interview on Monday. MTV it seems haven`t a clue that Alice has had to wheel out the same revelation in pretty much every interview for the last 30 years, including many MTV interviews. They also manage to miss quote him from their own show!!
In a slightly more serious article ITV have a new [link=http://www.itv.com/page.asp?partid=3409]interview with Alice from the Soap Awards. The show will be transmitted over ITV1 and ITV2 starting at 6pm tonight.

On a related note, due to the problems some people have had with the current site design, we're heading for another change which will also add some new areas to the site including a SickthingsUK store to help people locate that album/DVD/book they've never got round to buying but want. And for the first time USA people will be able to buy from AmazonUS via this site as well. Anything Amazon lists will be available via either direct links for Alice Cooper related products, or a search box for anything else. I'm also planning to add reviews for items so if you are interested in submitting a review of something Alice related, get in touch at the normal address. It would be boring if they were all my reviews!!
Now if I could just get a sneak peek at the "Dirty Diamonds" cover....

More Golf Action
Following up on CrazyLittleChilds info about Alice actually making it to the Michael Douglas Celebrity Golf Bash in Cascata golf club in Boulder City, Nevada, I discover that footage from the event will air on NBC on May 15th following the football (4pm-6pm). As Alice's team apparently won, I would expect their to be a reasonable amount of AC content.

Tonight is the Celebrity VIP party at Cooperstown. Also announced was the date of this years Xmas Pudding show which will be on December 17th.
(Thanks to Psychopat for report)

Update: You can see a few photos from the event [link=http://news.search.yahoo.com/search/news/?p=%22Alice+Cooper%22&ei=UTF-8&c=news_photos]here.
CrazyLittleChild has emailed me to add a few details (like Dick Wagners guest appearance added above). Also that Alice did in fact appear at the Michael Douglas Celebrity Golf tournament early on Sunday as well! I had seen this announced, but as it clashed with Alice's own tournament assumed it was a mistake!! Apparently not! It also meant he was late to his own party!! But as his team actually won at the Douglas bash I suppose it was all worth it!!
