Alice released the following statement on the Death of pop star Michael Jackson: "Michael Jackson was easily as influential as James Brown and that's saying a lot. He was the Fred Astaire of his time. We had Vincent Price in common -- I used him first on "Welcome to My Nightmare" in 1975 and he (Jackson) later used him on "Thriller." Nobody moved like Michael, he was truly the King of Pop."
The Morung Express has an interview with Alice about religion.
