Zombie Dance and Detroit Nights
[link=http://www.detnews.com/2005/screens/0504/28/C01-164333.htm]Detroit News has a new interview and photo about the launch of the 'Nights with Alice Cooper' radio show in the Detroit area on WCSX-FM. The station is only airing three hours of the show though from 10pm to 1am Detroit time.

Also: 'Zombie Dance', from the forthcoming 'Dirty Diamonds' album, will be the preview track on Tuesday 3rd May's show according to United Stations, although the shows full playlist is yet to be confirmed.

Also: For the more technically minded [link=http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=36012]Blabbermouth are reporting that 'HipTunes' will be auctioning off an Alice Cooper "HipTunes wallet/case belt". This seems to be some sort of belt that houses an IPod. Quote: "Each creation for this project is a one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art that will be auctioned off on eBay starting Friday, April 29, and will run through May 28. On Thursday, April 28, Genre Collection will be unveiling these celebrity designed HipTunes belts at an exclusive event at The Spider Club in Los Angeles. MAC Cosmetics will be creating artistic designs on the bodies of the models wearing the belts. Proceeds from the auction will be donated to VH1 Save the Music, The Lancelot H. Owens Scholarship Foundation, St. Jude's Research Hospital, Hollygrove Children and Family Services, Sabrina Love Foundation and the Wes Wehmiller Scholarship."
Going by a similar item for Steven Tyler, it does appear that the winning bidder will get a bit more then just an IPod pouch but I haven't located anything to say what will be in the Alice Cooper package.

And lastly: Eric Dover and [link=http://www.sextus.com]Sextus will be playing two shows at the Cat Club in North Hollywood on May 4th and 18th. More shows to follow.

German Release
Thanks to Jan Coop who reports he's been told by a German promotor that the new 'Dirty Diamonds' album is due to be released in Germany on July 4th through Eagle/Edel. This seems to comfirm that while Alice has left Spitfire/EagleRock in the USA, the new album will still be reelased by them in Europe. While this is just the German release date, it's probably a resonable guess that the the UK would be the same day, with the US maybe the following day (as US new releases come out on a tuesday there, not monday) but this is yet to be confirmed and only speculation at this point.

Woman of Mass Distraction
Yup, despite endless netfeed problems Alice played a track from "Dirty Diamonds" tonight on his radio show. 'Woman Of Mass Distraction' was, as he promised, a slice of AC/DC-like rock and roll but he also said that there is lots of diversity on the album this time, with some songs not sounding like anything you would expect from Alice Cooper. He also promised to play more tracks in the run up to the album release.

According to [link=http://www.detnews.com/2005/screens/0504/20/D01-155805.htm]Detroit News The 'Nights With Alice Cooper' radio finally gets an afliate in Detroit at WCSX from Thursday 28th April. Says Alice "This is where I want to be -- on the air at WCSX in Detroit, my hometown! I grew up on the great free-form FM rock and roll stations of the past, so I'm bringing a little bit of that excitement back to radio. I know you're ready for this kind of rock and roll, and in fact, if anybody gets this show, it'll be Detroit."
Note: The station will be airing three hours of the five hour show only.

Upcoming guests on the show include the band 'Heaven And Earth' tonight, (consisting of ex-members of Deep Purple, Heart, Black Sabbath) and Kelly Hansen, who is the new lead singer of Foreigner.
Then tomorrow (thursday) it's Steve Vai!

UPDATE: And on friday, the moment we`ve been waiting for! Quote: Alice gives an exclusive sneak peak at HIS new album "Dirty Diamonds" which doesn't come out until June!

Hammersmith?
X-Fm radio in london are currently running a story about Alice Cooper playing a one off show at Hammersmith Odeon on June 27th. They even have it on their website [link=http://www.xfm.co.uk/article.asp?id=22170]here
This is a press release for LAST YEARS SHOW. Alice will be in Australia on that date so it looks like this is a mistake on the part of X-FM.

No More Spitfire?
Rumours abound that Alice Cooper has left Spitfire Records/Eagle Rock, at least in the USA. This is based on information from a source at Eagle Rock posted to the ST mailing list. Contrary to something said on another board he was NOT dropped by Spitfire, but has simply moved on to pastures new. No news about where he's moved to, or how this effects other territories, but the album, which is complete (according to Alice), is still on schedule to be released on time this summer (June has long been suggested in interviews/press).

Nights News: Last weeks interview with Aerosmiths Joe Perry is now up on the [link=http://www.nightswithalicecooper.com]Nightswithalicecooper.com.

Eric Singer: Contrary to a previous report, it now appears Eric Singer may be on the November UK tour. No more info at this time.

The vicious little alley cat decides that killing is the best way to get a quick fix" in a story called "Dope".
The 70-minute anthology movie was directed, written and produced by Brian Crow and Walter Ruether, who also created the special FX with Lyle Snodgrass, and is described as a cross between 'Tales From The Crypt' and 'The Toxic Avenger'.

Baseball and more packages
Alice mentioned last night that he would be throwing out the first pitch at the Diamondbacks Baseball game on the 10th April, so anyone in the area get those VHS's set in case it gets shown on TV. He was also at the game yesterday and was picked out on the TV broadcast.

[link=http://www.alicecooper.com]AC.com has annoumced the ever popular (sarcasm off) packages for some of the European dates on sale as usual through Fanfire in the USA.

The new issue of 'The Wire' magazine in the UK has a short article about the 'Muscle Of Love' album cover in a section called the "Inner Sleeve" and it's written by JG Thirlwell of 'Foetus'.

Calico Movie Update/Ryan Blog Update
[link=http://www.alicecoopertrivia.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/newspics/scarlet.jpg]
'Scarlet Fry's Junkfood Horrorfest' (featuring Calico Cooper) is a series if six demented tales, that will be brought to you by your ghoulish host Scarlet Fry. Calico's role in the upcoming film is that of a junkie killer. Directed by Brian Crow & Walter Ruether, all scenes were shot in Phoenix last week. Word has it that an official website which will include a trailer featuring Calico will be up shortly at [link=http://www.scarletfry.com]www.scarletfry.com. Danger junkfood horrorfest contains explicit gore!
Click on the pic for the first photo from the movie!

Also: Ryan Roxie has a new Blog entry up at [link=http://roxie77.blogspot.com/]Roxie77 although it doesn't feature any Alice, OR Roxie77 info this time!

All the info can be found at [link=http://www.roxie77.com/img/img.html]Roxie77.com. From what I've heard from people who have taken up the offer it's a lot of fun!

Another Free CD
Probably way to late now for anyone to grab a copy, but the 'News Of The World' newspaper today had a free CD with it that featured 'Poison', plus a small pic of Alice on the cover of the newspaper. (thanks Tim)

Also: Neal Smith, Dennis Dunaway and Joe Bouchard will be at [link=http://www.chillertheatre.com]the Chiller Theater again this year. No word on if BDS will be performing yet though. (thanks Bryan)

Also: In a complete non-story, many places are reporting that Alice Cooper likes Kylie due to a short comment he seems to have made. Why this is such a story I've no idea, especially after the near identical one last year with Celine Dion as the singer that time. The quote goes "If a Kylie song comes on with a catchy beat, I'll sit and rock my head to it like anyone else. I think she's great."
