Felicitations upon you my children and may your gronkies never be withered and may your brand new pair of shoes never smell of rotting wallaby.
As always, thanks to everybody who wrote in with kind words etc on ACA 2. It gets you right here....Any road up, what news be there? Well, as I told you Alice appeared on the Grammy awards presentation on Feb. 28th amd although he did not win the Best Video LP section, he at least got the nomination and he presented an award to The Police. By all accounts, Alice looked great!! I am indebted to Andy Blackhurst of Huyton for the following:

From: Royal Court Liverpool 21st October 1975 Dear Sir I very much regret that you were disappointed by the short appearance os ALICE COOPER in the film "WE HAVE COME FOR YOUR DAUGHTERS". May I assure you that the management of this theatre were under the impression clearly given by Columbia-Warner Distributers LLtd., the makers of the film, that Alice Cooper had a staring role. In order to compensate you for your disappointment, may I invite you to attend, with a guest, any forthcoming production atmthis theatre to your liking. Tickets will be issued to you at the Box Office on production of this letter. Yours faithfully, David M. Liddy GENERAL MANAGER
It would appear that a cinema full of Alice fans ran riot through the above theatre when Alice was only on screen for a few minutes during the above film. The film is of course, the one I described in the last issue as 'Medicine Ball Caravan'.
HOLD THE FRONT PAGE
T'would appear that ex-Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry will be joining Alices' 'new' band according to a report in music paper 'Sounds'. Let's hope it's a creative union. Also, according to 'Kerrang!' magazine, Alices 2 year association with Warner Brothers is over and a new deal with a new label will be announced shortly. 'Kerrang!' also says that Alices next LP will be a follow up to 'Welcome To My Nightmare' (I think your gonna like it....)!!!
