ROCK THIS WAY!  The 3rd Annual Dick Wagner “Remember the Child” Memorial Concert to feature over 25 music legends, including Mark Farner (Grand Funk Railroad), Suzi Quatro, Kip Winger, and more!       
After a sold-out premiere in January 2015 and reprise concert in 2016, the Dick Wagner “Remember the Child” Memorial Concert returns for a star-studded sequel, presented by New Horizons Computer Learning Centers.  Concert is set for Friday March 24, 2017 at MotorCity Casino, Sound Board, in Detroit. 
The concert is jam-packed with an all-star lineup featuring Mark Farner (Grand Funk Railroad), Suzi Quatro & The Pleasure Seekers (Suzi is a groundbreaking female rocker & Happy Days’ “Leather Tuscadero”), Kip Winger (Winger), Robert Wagner, Jimmie Bones (Kid Rock), musical director & Grammy nominee Paul Brown, Johnny “Bee” Badanjek (Mitch Ryder, the Rockets), The Accidentals (Billboard’s 2015 Breakout Band at SXSW), Thornetta Davis, John Ellison (Some Kind of Wonderful), Danish shock rocker, Maryann Cotton, rock diva Miss Wensday, Detroit Music Award winners, Ray Goodman, Dennis Burr, David Winans II, Muruga Booker, and more!
All Concert profits Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, including Beaumont Children’s of Royal Oak and more. The Dick Wagner “Remember the Child” Fund (DWRTC), a 501(c)3 non-profit, creates and funds music therapy programs for hospitalized children. Each hospital receives funds to support the hiring of Board Certified Music Therapists as well as a broad selection of musical instruments.  
The Dick Wagner Fund is proud to add Hurley Children’s Hospital, Flint, Michigan, as a beneficiary of 2017 concert profits. Flint water, contaminated with toxic lead poisoning, has adversely affected the health of thousands of children. Music therapy reduces the effects of lead poisoning on functional, behavioral, and cognitive skills.    The “Remember the Child” Concert honors the memory of legendary guitarist and songwriter, Dick Wagner, renowned for his lead guitar and songwriting with Alice Cooper, Lou Reed, Aerosmith, Kiss, and Peter Gabriel, and his wildly popular early bands, The Frost and the Bossmen. Wagner co-wrote more than 100 songs with Cooper, including "Only Women Bleed," "I Never Cry," “You and Me,” and Welcome to My Nightmare, along with mega-hits for other artists. In his lifetime, Wagner donated his talent generously to benefit the lives of children, vets and the homeless. As Dick tells us, “There is more love in the human heart than can ever be given away.”  
Celebrity-studded Live and Silent Auctions will feature autographed music and sports memorabilia, including guitars signed by The Hollywood Vampires (Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper, and Joe Perry), Mark Farner, Kid Rock, Suzi Quatro, Alice Cooper, Sports Celebrities, Balloon rides, and more.
CONCERT DETAILS:  • March 24, 2017, Doors Open 5:30pm. MotorCity Casino, Sound Board, Detroit, MI 48201 • Tickets $25, $75, $120, $150 www.dwrtc.org/tickets  (800) 745 3000 or (313) 309-4700   • VIP $120 includes Meet & Greet, 2 Drinks, Priority seating, Gift Bags.

Beasto Blanco, Damon Johnson and Alice in Nashville

Beasto Blanco played a storming show in Nashville last night with a few surprises. The show opened with local band Denman, before Damon Johnson took the stage with his solo band. Damon's later guest appearance with Beasto Blanco of course wasn`t entirely a surprise. Beasto (minus Chuck) and Damon performed Thin Lizzy's 'Jailbreak' before Chuck returned and they started up 'No More Me Nice Guy' which saw Alice himself (in Nashville working on the new abum) join them on stage! They continued through 'Under My Wheels', 'I'm Eighteen' and closed with 'School's Out' which featured yet another guest, Lzzy Hale of Halestorm.
UPDATE: Check out some cool photos at Nashville Scene.

Nita Strauss Releases New Song/Video

Nita Struass has released a new video for the instrumental "Pandemonium" from the 'She Rocks, Vol.1' compilation being put together by Steve Vai and set to be released on January 20th.
Nita says: "As you guys may or may not know by now, for the past year or so I've been focusing on writing and putting my band together, and while I always thought about making a solo album, I thought my energy would be better spent right now focusing on giving the band my all and making those songs as great as they could be.
But whenSteve Vai asked if I'd be a part of this compilation, you better believe I jumped at the chance!!!! I've always loved instrumental guitar music, and to step into this world for the first time and get to do it on 'Favored Nations Entertainment' alongside the other badass girls on the She Rocks album, is an honor and a privilege.
I'm extremely grateful to Steve Vai, Brad Tolinski and Laura B. Whitmore for including me on this compilation!! And I have a feeling this isn't the last instrumental music I'll be writing."

New Show - Augusta

Alice Cooper will play the Bell Auditorium in Augusta, GA on April 30th. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 10AM.
There are also reports Alice will be returning to the 'Rock In Rio' festival in Brazil in September but this is yet to be confirmed.

A new Sky Arts (UK) series called 'Urban Myths' is set to feature an episode based around the famous meeting with artist Salvador Dali. The series has courted controversy already by casting a white actor to play Michael Jackson. While the title of the show suggests that the stories covered are untrue, in fact the aim of the show is to retell famous stories that are both true and untrue.

Alice Cooper has been announced as performing at the 2017 Wacken Open Air festival in Germany. The exact day hasn`t been released but the festival runs between August 3rd and August 5th and as there is already a show in Hungary on the 3rd , that obviously leaves August 4th or 5th.

Alice And Shep at Pollstar Live

It's all been a little quiet this week since the last show announcements but here's a couple of things worth reporting:

Alice and Shep are set to be keynote speakers at 'Pollstar Live 2017!' which takes place in Los Angeles between January 31st and February 2nd, and it looks like they will appear on February 1st. The title of their event is "Shep Gordon and Alice Cooper: A 47 Year Conversation" so sounds like a repeat of the Bootleg Theater event a few weeks ago. The industry event is aimed at the Concert industry.

Epiphone Guitars feature Ryan Roxie and the Epiphone guitars he's been using on stage this past year. Expect more from this partnership in the coming year.

Neal Smith's movie "Desolation Angeles/Rise of the BOAS" gets it's world premiere on December 28th at the Bijou Theatre (275 Fairfield Ave.) in Bridgeport, CT. Admission free although a donation is encouraged. Quote: Smith wrote the title song for the film and plays a ruthless Russian mob boss in a full-length black-and-white production based on morality issues rooted in classical Greek mythology."

Steve and Karen Hunter have created a new 'GoFundMe' page where you can pledge your support for Steve's forthcoming new album, entitled 'Before The Lights Go Out'. The campaign features many of the usual incentives, as well as a few extra special ones like Tommy Henriksen's stage pants, and a signed Jason Becker guitar pedal!
To further the fund raising (which also helps with Steve's bills now he can no longer tour or work without assistance) there is an Ebay auction for a one-of-a-kind 'Loic Le Pape Mosteel J.Ramone tribute guitar'. The instrument has been donated by Tommy Henriksen, who played it at this years Christmas Pudding show, and is signed by many of the guests at that show including Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, Joe Perry, Sammy Hagar, Tommy Henriksen, and Bob Ezrin, as well as Steve himself. The auction has about a day to run so be quick if you are interested!

New Show - Sweden

Alice Cooper is returning to the Grona Lund in Stockholm, Sweden on July 27th. Admission comes free with entry to the park so presumably you can buy advanced park tickets now.
UPDATE: There is also a show at Liseberg amusement park in Gothenburg on July 26th.

I've been having a few computer problems here (basically my laptop died on me) so you may have seen coverage of the Xmas pudding show already, but from what I can tell it was again a huge success with the Hollywood Vampires (with Glen Sobel on drums) headlining with a set that opened with 'Raise The Dead', ran through many of the songs from the album, and closed with Run, Rudolph, Run'.
You can read a full review courtesy of AZ Central, while Phoenix New-Times has lots of photos and a review of their own. They also have photos from CO-OP's CD launch show, last Friday during which Alice joined the band for 'I'm Eighteen' and 'School's Out'.
