Fifty Years Book Sample Pages

Copies of the Deluxe limited (500 copies) edition of Martin Popoff's 'Welcome To My Nightmare - Fifty Years Of Alice Cooper' are now shipping and it's a very nicely put together package. The heavy A4 sized hardback book comes in a black presentation box and includes four card photo prints, three taken at Milton Keynes in 2006 and one on the 'Special Forces' tour at Hammersmith. The 240 page book itself runs through Alice Cooper history via important dates and quotes from various people that were involved in the events covered, including the original band and other musicians, producers, backstage crew, and friends. As with most books about Alice Cooper around 2/3rds of the text concentrates on the 1970s, with the last 100 or so pages covering the following 40 years, but at least they are mentioned! I haven't had a chance to read through it yet but it's all very nicely present with lots of photos and images. Certainly well worth getting while you can. You can still order a copy of this deluxe limited edition version, as well as the normal paperback version, at WymerUK, who have kindly sent me some sample pages for you to check out here.

Dennis Dunaway was on 'That Thing with Rich Appel' over the weekend and you can check out the full show here (the one you want is the latest 9/8/18 upload lasting 2:59.48).  Dennis appears a few times during the show.
Don't forget there's only 12 days to go to pledge to Dennis' 'Cold, Cold Coffin' video kickstarter project. Lots of amazing stuff to entice you to pledge, just wish I had the more money! If everyone chipped in just a few dollars to pre-order the finished film it would all help reach the target. It would be a huge shame if this didn't happen. Dennis also sends out regular updates on the project, and over the weekend he and the crew were out at a cold, cold castle, measuring up for sets and lighting in preparation for shooting the mini-film. Check it out here and donate if you can. Remember, this is Dennis Dunaway, founder member of Alice Cooper. The guy behind 'Black Juju', 'Under My Wheels' 'School Out', and all the classic songs Alice has built his career on. Surely there are more then 224 people (as of writing, thank you all) who can chip in a few dollars/pounds to help him out. Remeber you will only be charged if the campaign reaches it's target.
