There's a few other things to catch up on from the Xmas week:

The Guardian had a short interview with Alice, parts of which have been repeated on numerous other sites. It's nothing particularly new, just Alice again talking about his dislike of mixing politics and music, but as has happened previous times other sites have grabbed hold of the comments and built their own news stories around them.

According to an interview with Joe Perry the new Hollywood Vampire's album is currently at the mixing stage and he hopes the band will play more shows this summer.

Rue Morgue Records have posted an article telling the story of the 'Live From The Astroturf' album with lots of photos and background info on the release.

Neal Smith is interviewed by Hollywood Soapbox promoting his 'Best Of KillSmith' CD which is out now.

Nita Strauss is interviewed by 'The Roman Show' which you can see on YouTube. There's also an interview with Nita at WSOU over at Soundcloud. Nita also came in a #6 on Ultimate Guitar's 'Guitarist of the Year 2018'!

The annual event is put on by the local Salvation Army and the Bank of Arizona and after lunch each child is given a toy by Santa.
