Stuff that doesn't really fit anywhere else at the moment

'Eating Sweets Can Make You Violent' was the working title for a few different albums, but to date has never been used.

Alice temporarily lived in George Harrison's house in the 1970's. The house was located on Blue Jay Way (a street immortalized in the song by the Beatles of the same name).

On "Dateline NBC" November 1995, they had a segment on the new system of giving speeding tickets in Arizona. A monitor records the speed of a vehicle, takes a photograph instantly of the license plate and also a picture of the driver. Then they send a speeding ticket in the mail to the guilty driver. They showed several celebrities who got caught speeding and by now you know that one was Alice.

Alice is listed as having produced the 'The New Manson Family' album circa 1988. He didn't. The band just put his name on the cover for publicity. Alice was not impressed and had them change it.

There was a band in Phoenix called The Mighty Sphincter who illegally credited Alice as producing their locally released album. They were served with a cease and desist order from Alice's lawyers. As with the album above it was probably done to get publicity.

The version of "Stairway To Heaven" that sometimes turns up on bootlegs is a silly song parody, with completely different lyrics, done live and unrehearsed on the Howard Stern radio show circa 1987.

Alice appeared in the mobile/cell phone game 'Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff' in 2014. He did various voice overs for the game during a special in-hame event based around a spoof of Lollapaloza festivals. His avatar/character was seen with a guillotine or feeding his snake depending on which "task" you set him. You could also get a ALice Cooper van and other related items."
