Even on the leanest days the band and Leo agreed she would eat first." His famous when collecting money from shady promoters while simultaneously slipping his hand into his pocket.

Super Bowl Advert


Posted on 05 Feb 2018
Happy Birthday Alice!

It's February 4th and Alice Cooper has reached 70, with few signs that he will be slowing down in the near future.  The 'Paranormal Night with Alice Cooper' tour starts next month, followed by a new Hollywood Vampires album and tour, and hopefully another new Alice Cooper album will be in there sooner rather then later. Add all that too endless public appearances at charity events, award ceremonies and gold tournaments and it's hard to see when he ever takes a break. So Happy Birthday Alice, and come back to [insert you country of choice here here] soon!
On top of that, the NFL have kindly scheduled the Super Bowl on his mark the occasion, and if you watch the game in the US (they don't show the famous Super Bowl adverts outside the US) you'll see Alice pop up there as well, as he's apparently featured in an advert for 'Desert Financial Credit Union'. 

DW.com have a short article looking back at Alice's 70 years.

Nita Strauss has been very busy this week at the annual NAMM music convention in Anaheim, CA making various apearances throughout the event, but the biggest moment for her was the announcement that she has become the first ever female Ibanez Signature artist. Nita has endorsed Ibanez guitars for years, but becoming a Ibanez signature artist obviously means a huge mount to her. So much that she streamed the announcement live on facebook yesterday and was almost crying when saw her signature 'Ibanez Jiva' guitar for the first time. You can check out the video on Nita's facebook page and the full specs on the new guitar will be posted shortly. Congratulations Nita!
Also at NAMM this weekend were Alice himself at the Sure Microphone stand, Michael Bruce and Tommy Henriksen.

Tim Smith Appeal

Tim SmithI almost never post anything to this page that isn`t directly Alice Cooper related, but I hope you'll forgive me this once if I post about following.
People who know me probably know I'm a HUGE fan of UK band Cardiacs and have been since I first saw them back around 1983 playing small clubs around my area. 10 years ago Tim Smith, singer, guitarist and songwriter of Cardiacs suffered a catastrophic brain injury which left him in a wheelchair, unable to move or speak. Since then the people around him have been fighting the system to get Tim the help he needs but have now reached out for help. You can read the full story here, or the official statement here. A crowdfunding page has been set up, and reached it's initial goal in just 10 hours! But this amount only pays for things for three months, so the target has been raised and any donation would be appriciated. If you feel inclinded please read the story and donate even a small amount to help. Thank you. You can donate here.

Happy New Year

So it's a new year, and normally the first posting of the new year reports on the annual New Years Eve charity show in Hawaii, so I've been holding off a little waiting for the reviews or videos to appear, but so far I've seen nothing at all beyond a short clip of Steven Tyler's performance! So I'm not waiting any longer and here's a catch up on a few things that surfaced over the Xmas period.

Alice appeared on Dutch TV talking about 'How You Gonna See Me Now' which made the 'Top 2000 A GoGo', a list of the all time top 2000 songs in The Netherlands. You can see a video of it here. In total Alice had 4 entries in the chart starting with 'School's Out' at 757, followed by 'How You Gonna See Me Now' at 654, 'Poison' at 331, and finally 'Halo Of flies' at 268.

Alice appeared on Chris Jericho's 'Talk Is Jericho' radio show a while ago which you can now listen to here including some words about Glen Buxton and Lemmy.

Penny Black Music has new interviews with Dennis Dunaway, and Michael Bruce, as well as a review of the Birmingham show.

Alice was at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland recently and they have posted a short video of fans remembering their first Alice shows introduced by Alice himself.

BMI.com has a new interview with Alice as well based around his recent nomination to the 'Songwriter's Hall Of Fame'. The awards ceremony takes place on June 14th in New York City.

Black Velvet Magazine has a review of the recent Birmingham show in their latest issue which you can read online here. Just click on issue 95. Elsewhere in the magazine you'll also see a short article about SickthingsUK!

On Friday 5th January the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood will be showing a double header of the 'Welcome To My Nightmare' concert film and John Carpenter's 'Prince Of Darkness', which of course also features Alice.The show will be introduced by 'Prince of Darkness' actor Peter Jason.
