Dennis Dunaway has launched a new Kickstarter campaign revolving around a new song entitled 'Cold Cold Coffin', taken from his forthcoming solo album and also featuring Nick Didkovsky on guitar and Russ Wilson on drums. The campaign seeks funds to produce a "Rock Cinema" film based on the song's lyrics, and starring Calico Cooper, which is being put together with Peter Perenyi (Director of Photography) and Brian Cichocki (Director). Shooting should begin in October with the finished film released no later then May next year.
The Kickstarter campaign page includes all sorts of incentives from digital downloads of the finished project to original Alice Cooper Memorabilia including 1972 tour programmes, 1973 'Alice Cooper' B$B magazines and original Spider's business cards from 1966!!
Check out the page at http://kck.st/2vTSiyb for the full list, and a sneak preview clip of 'Cold Cold Coffin'.

Sadly yesterday also saw the loss of two very different singers. Firstly legendary soul singer Aretha Franklin passed away, which has rightfully been covered extensively in the press. While not directly Alice Cooper related, the 'Queen of Soul' was one of the most important artists of all time, influencing every singer, regardless of genre, for decades.
Less well reported is the passing of Nita Struass' 'Starbreakers' band mate and 'Huntress' lead singer Jill Janus who sadly took her own life on Tuesday  She was 43. Blabbermouth have a statement from Nita paying tribute to her friend. Our condolences go out to the families, friends and fans of both artists.
Nita Strauss is featured on the front cover of the new American Music Supplies catalog and it looks like you can sign up to get a free copy here, although probably only in the United States. There's a small image of the cover at the bottom of the page.

The new Arizona Alice Cooper lottery scratch cards have proven very popular with the organisers apparently being inundated with requests from fans around the world asking how to get copies! Much to their credit they were sending out voided ticket sets free of charge to anyone who asked, but unsurprisingly have now run out. In response to the requests a special commemorative print is being organised which will be available from Alice Cooper's 'Solid Rock' website in a few weeks. These will feature three of each design with proceeds going directly to the charity. So keep an eye out here for further announcements. Remember the actual scratch cards themselves should be available in AZ shops right up until Halloween so you still have plenty of  time to find real ones.

Ultimate Classic Rock have a new interview with Alice and Dennis Dunaway at the Cleveland Hall Of Fame with comments on the forthcoming second 'Hollywood Vampires' album, Glen Buxton, and Dennis' new projects including his forthcoming solo album which will be crowdfunded. A full announcement on that should come soon.

The new issue of 'Classic Rock' Magazine in the UK has a review of the forthcoming live album. They aren't that impressed considering it doesn't featuring the original band performances from the UK tour, or anything from 'Paranormal' - which is odd as it should include the single 'Paranoaic Personality'. The most annoying part of the short review though is where they state fans don't care about Alice's current band of session musicians! What rubbish. The reviewer Ian Fortnam should do his research, and read the track listing!

Dennis Dunaway has just been inducted into the Music Museum of New England and they are looking to fans to post their memories of DD encounters of general tributes to add to their page. You can check out the Museum site here.
Dennis also wrote a foreword to Rockin' Reggie's new biography 'Still Got A Song In Me' which is out now via Hero press. Reggie was a close friend of the original Cooper band and co-wrote and and played on 'Billion Dollar Babies' so expect lots of Alice Cooper mentions.
And lastly for Dennis at the moment, the new paperback edition of 'Snakes, Guillotines, Electric Chairs' featuring an introduction from Alice himself is out now and should be available to order through Amazon and your local book store.
