STUK sends out all our best wishes to Steve and Karen Hunter after Steve had another heart operation yesterday. Karen reports that it seems successful and Steve is currently recovering in Phoenix. In a post to facebook Karen says "Just saw Steve in recovery room, he is drowsy but already looks and sounds better than the previous time which was only 10 days ago. Dr says it was tricky to get to the trigger point they thought was the culprit but he feels confidant they got it and Steve's heartbeat is rock steady for the first time in ages. I thank God and all the best wishes and prayers from you guys. You all know how much we want to put this behind us. Xx"
Steve's new album 'The Manhatten Blues Project' is out now.

New Show- Sweden 26 Apr 2013

According to the festival website Alice Cooper will be performing at Storsjoyran in Ostersund, Sweden on July 27th. 

Alicecooper.com have released a new limited edition lithograph to commemorate the 40th aniversary of 'Billion Dollar Babies' reaching #1 in the album charts.

There's a video interview of Ryan Roxie showing off the new Gibson guitars (you can play 'spot the riff' haha) at the recent Musikmesse music expo in Germany.

The Music Instrument Museum in Phoenix has added an Alice Cooper display featuring the 'glitter' costume from the last tour.

New Show - Mount Pleasant 23 Apr 2013

Alice Cooper and Marilyn Manson will play at the Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort, Mount Pleasant, MI on June 29th. Tickets go on sale April 27th.

Orianthi Solo Shows 21 Apr 2013

Orianthi has some solo shows lined up with Chuck Garric and Glen Sobel backing her up. The first is the previously announced Las Vegas show on April 25th at 'Vinyl at The Hard Rock Hotel And Casino' which are followed by shows in Japan between May 13th and May 17th. Unfortunatly all the info is in Japanese so I can't offer much more beyond the fact that the May 14th show appears to be in Tokyo and May 17th show appears to be in Osaka, both at venues called 'Billboard Live'.

Sadly the 'Uncle Alice Presents..' Kickstarter campaign failed to reach it's $200,000 target. Where this leaves the project hasn't been announced but maybe funding will appear from another source. Contary to what seemed the general perception this was NOT an Alice Cooper project but the idea of a small company called 'Dark Matter' who are just starting out (hence the campaign) that would feature Alice. Still, it's a shame this may never now happen.

Blue Coupe play at the Cutting Room in NYC on April 27th. This is a show to mark the release of the new BC album 'Million Miles More' which you can order here (and features Alice on one track). Tickets available here. This will be followed up with more US shows throughout the year (starting May 3rd) some of which are already announced. Full details can be at the official Blue Coupe site.  

Metal Sludge has a recent interview with Kane Roberts during which he talks about working with Alice.
