Guest Appearances

Alice has made quite a few guest appearances on other artists records over the years but many of these are relatively short. Check out the main albums page for other more high profile guest appearances.

Blue Coupe - Million Miles More - Alice sings on 'Hallows Grave'.

Louise Goffin - 'Watching The Sky Turn Black' - Alice, Johnny Depp, Tommy Henriksen, and Glen Sobel guest on backing vocals, although you can`t tell

Theory Of A Deadman - 'Savages' - Alice does guest vocals on the title track from the bands 2014 album.

Albert Brooks - A Star Is Bought - Comedian and actor Brooks recorded this comedy/spoken word album in 1975 and it features Alice on the track 'A New Beginning". The album was produced by Harry Shearer (Simpsons, Spinal Tap) and was nominated for a Grammy!

Twisted Sister - 'Come Out And Play' album singing on 'Be Chrool To Your Skool'.

Gun's'N Roses - 'Use Your Illusion' album singing on 'The Garden'.

Icon - 'Right Between The Eyes' on which he sings on 'Holy Man's War' and 'Two For The Road'".

Guy Mann-Dude - 'Slight Of Hand'

The extent of Alice's vocals on that album is counting off (as in 1,2, 3) the song 'Clusterphuck' and he also says "on the verge" in his trademark sneer on the song of the same name. Guy Mann-Dude played the famous solo on 'Poison'.

Carol Bayer Sager - '..Too' on which he co-wrote and sings backing vocals on 'Shadows'.

Kane Roberts - Kane Roberts - Full Pull - Co-writer only. Alice doesn`t appear on the album personally

Last Taxi Home - `Lullaby Of Love`. Alice and Graham Shaw co-wrote 'Lullaby Of Love'.

I believe that Lullaby of Love was written around the time of Dada. I think a guy in Last Taxi Home played on Dada and Alice wound up contributing on a song that made it's way onto their record.
(Renfield, January 1998)

Shocker - Soundtrack on which he performs on 'Shockdance' and co-writes 'Love Transfusion' for Iggy Pop.

Robin Beck - Alice co-wrote (with Desmond Child) 'Hold Back The Night' on Robin's 1990, self-titled album.

`Hold Back The Night` was written with Desmond. Alice demoed it but it wasn't the right kind of song for him. Desmond was working with Robin Beck and she liked it and put it on her album.
(Renfield, January 1998)

Insane Clown Posse - Spoken word intro thing for "The Great Milenko" (Buy)

The album was on Hollywood Records, a subsidiary of the Disney corporation. On it's release, a group of Southern Baptists apparently threatened to boycott all Disney product if the album wasn't withdrawn. Apparently they objected to the lyrics. Disney had the album withdrawn and Hollywood dropped the band and cancelled the tour. It was re-released shortly after on a new label.

This is from an article that appeared in several major newspapers circa August 1997:

Early this year Cooper helped out Detroit's most infamous young act, rap group Insane Clown Posse, intoning an introduction to "The Great Milenko," a profanity-laced album that Disney recalled from stores.
Cooper, who met the duo just once, says he was paid for simply reciting a few lines.
"I had no idea what the album was about," he says. "I certainly didn't know it was going to be controversial. But you know how I shun controversy, of course."
So he pleads pure coincidence when describing the theme of his new tour and on-stage production, Alice Carnival 1997--and not featuring ICP. "It may look like they're on-stage when you see our clownage."

The A-Teens - A swedish pop group. Alice did guest vocal on their cover of 'School's Out' which very briefly got a certain amount of publicity. Six monhs later the group seemed to have vanished.

Johnny Cash - Alice recorded a vocal for Cash's version of 'Personal Jesus' but he's not on the final version.

Jake Trout and The Flounders - See Here.

Damon Johnson - Alice guests on vocals and harmonica on Damon's version of the Cooper classic 'Generation Landslide' on his solo album 'Release'

Merry Arizona

Merry Arizona TwoAlice appeared on a charity album "Merry Arizona Two " reciting the following verse/prose called "Is There A Santa?":

"As a result of an overwhelming lack of requests, and with research help from that renowned scientific journal, 'Spy Magazine', January, 1990, I am pleased to present the annual scientific inquiry into, Santa Claus.
No known species of reindeer can fly, *but*, there are over 300,000 species of living organisms yet to be classified. While most of these are insects & germs, this does not *completely* rule out flying reindeer, which by the way only *Santa* has ever seen.

There are 2 billion children in the world, at an average census rate of 3.5 children per household, that's 91.8 million homes. One presumes there's at least one good child in each.

I doubt it.

Santa has 31 hours of Christmas to work with, thanks to the different time zones and the rotation of the earth. Assuming he travels East to West, which seems logical, this works out to 822.6 visits per second.

Pretty good.

Santa has 1/1,000th of a second to park, hop out of the sleigh, jump down the chimney, fill the stockings, distribute the remaining presents under the tree, eat whatever snacks have been left, get back up in the chimney, get back into the sleigh and move onto the next house.

Assuming that each of these 91.8 million stops are evenly distributed around the earth, we are now talking about .78 miles per household, a total trip of 75 1/2 million miles, not counting stops to do what most of us must do at least once every 31 hours, plus feeding, etc.

This means that Santa's sleigh is moving at 650 miles per second, 3,000 times the speed of sound. For purposes of comparison, the fastest man-made vehicle on earth, the Ulysses Space Probe moves at a pokey 27.4 miles per second. A conventional reindeer can run tops, 15 miles per hr.

The payload on the sleigh adds another interesting element. Assuming that each child gets nothing more than a medium size Lego set, 2 lbs., the sleigh is carrying 321,300 tons, not counting Santa who is invariably described as overweight. On land, conventional reindeer can pull not more than 300 lbs., tops, even granting that flying reindeer could pull 10 times the normal amount, he could not do the job with 8, or even 9! He would need 214,200 reindeer. This increases the payload, not even counting the weight of the sleigh to 353,430 tons. Again, for comparison, this is 4 times the weight of the 'Queen Elizabeth'. 353,000 tons traveling at 650 miles per second creates enormous air resistance. This would heat the reindeer up in the same fashion as spacecraft reentering the earth's atmosphere.

Christmas barbecue!

The lead pair of reindeer will absorb 14.3 quintillion jewels of energy per second each. In short, they will burst into flame almost instantaneously, exposing the reindeer behind them and creating deafening sonic booms in their wake. The entire reindeer team will vaporize within 4.26 thousands of a second. Santa, meanwhile, will be subjected to centrifugal forces 17,500.6 times greater than gravity. A 250 lb. Santa, which seems ludicrously slim would be pinned to the back of his sleigh by 4,315,015 lbs. of force.

In conclusion, if Santa ever did deliver presents on Christmas Eve, he's dead now.

But ah, just in case I'm totally wrong, I am going to hang one really big, long stocking - I need a great big Bertha driver."

You really need to hear it! It`s well worth searching.

Live guest appearances:

"I know he did it at an Elton John show (17th August 1976 New York, NY Madison Square Gardens ("Saturday Night")) with a couple of other people and also did the "colored girls' part on "Walk On The Wild Side" with a couple of people at a Lou Reed concert in '74. Most noticeable in recent years are Alice's appearance with Roger Daltrey at Carnegie and with White Zombie."
(Renfield, March 1996)

Alice performed "No More Mr Nice Guy" and "Jailhouse Rock" with the Beat Angels for Steven Seagal's appearance for the Grand Opening of AMC Arizona Center 24 Theaters at 4pm, 3rd April 1998! Alice's performance was outdoors and free for everybody.

After appearing on Slash's debut solo album, the pair happened to be playing in Paris within a day of each other in 2010 and Alice joined Slash on stage at the latters show.

In 2011 Alice turned up with the Foo Fighters at the Milton Keynes bowl. Foo Fighters guitarist Pat Smear is apparently a HUGE AC fan and the band performed 'Eighteen' and 'School's Out' with Alice taking the lead vocal.

Also in 2011 Alice turned up on stage with Ke$ha (who guested on 'Welcome 2 My Nightmare') at a show in Sweden. The song was, as always, 'School's Out'. Ke$ha returned the favour when she turned up on stage with Alice at the Whisky A Go Go club show the same year. She had also thrown out a Balloon at a show earlier in the year.

Alice appeared with Slash at a show in Paris in 2013 and then again later in the year at a show in Dubai. Slash has of course joined Alice many times in the past.
