Live From The Astroturf - The Movie! 13 Feb 2019

Above you can see the first trailer for 'Alice Cooper - Live From The Astroturf' - the forthcoming documentary telling the story of the now legendary 2015 Alice Cooper band reunion in a small record shop in Texas. Filmed on eight cameras and with music mixed by Bob Ezrin the film also features interviews with the band, organiser Chris Penn and others. It will premiere at the Phoenix Film Festival in Arizona between April 4th and 14th before touring the film festival circuit. Information on when it will be released commercially should follow in the coming months.

Grammy's and BAFTA's 11 Feb 2019

Its been very quiet on the news front for the last couple of the weeks. This could be because Alice has been holed up in the studio as shown by a photo of him with Tommy and Chuck posted by Kyler Clark. Is this the new Alice Cooper album, or maybe guesting on a Beasto Blanco track. Time will tell.
With the start of awards season he's been out and about this weekend, firstly at Clive Davis's celebrity Pre-Grammy bash on Saturday (February 9th), and then I assumed he would be at the Grammy's ceremony itself at the Staples Center in Los Angeles yesterday, where Jesus Christ Superstar was up for an award, but lost.
According to a tweet from UK broadcaster/comedian and AC fan Danny Baker he was also at the BAFTA awards ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall last night in London and sat next to Alice! This is weird as there are pictures of Alice with Steven Tyler at Tyler's Janie’s Fund Benefit at Raleigh Studios in Los Angeles last night. It seem far more likely Alice was in Los Angeles then London, so quite what Baker was talking about I'm not sure. It's not like he wouldn't know who he was talking to.

Back in December Alice featured on 'Top 2000 A Gogo' in the Netherlands talking about 'Elected', but the video was geo-locked, preventing most people seeing it. Now it's up on YouTube and you can see it here. (Thanks Jos)

Keri Kelli has a new band, although it's really an old band with a new name. He's launched 'A New Revenge' along with Tim 'Ripper' Owen's (Judas Priest), Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy, Whitesnake) and James Kottak (Scorpions, Kingdom Come) and they have an album out on March 25th called 'Enemies and Lovers'. The band have been playing shows for a few years now under various names, normally playing classic rock covers, but now it's a proper band playing their own material. You can see a video for the catchy first single 'The Way' here which actually features ex Ozzy bassist Phil Soussan standing in for an unavailable Sarzo.

Damon Johnson has released a video for 'Shivering Shivering', the lead single from his 'Memoirs Of An Uprising' solo album which is released on March 8th via Double Dragon Records. Damon recently spoke to 'The Classic Metal Show' about leaving Black Star Riders and heading out on his own which you can read here.

Lastly don't forget Ryan Roxie's UK shows are less than two weeks away! With the Nantwich charity show postponed you only have two chances to catch Roxie playing classic solo songs as well as a few Cooper surprises. Don`t miss it! He plays Bedford Esquires on February 22nd and Birmingham 'The Asylum' the following night.

New Kane Roberts Video Featuring Alice Cooper 28 Jan 2019

Below you can watch the new video for 'The Beginning Of The End' by Kane Roberts. Taken from his new solo album 'The New Normal' it features Alice along with Arch Enemy's Alissa White-Gluz and Sheryl Cooper!

'Heavy New York' interviewed Chuck Garric and Calico Cooper of Beasto Blanco at NAMM yesterday and you can see the interview now on YouTube.

Ryan Roxie's UK shows are getting closer so get your tickets before they sell out. These are full band shows for the first time in the UK and not to be missed. Catch Roxie at Bedford Esquires on February 22nd and The Asylum in Birmingham on February 23rd (and at the Birmingham Guitar Show during the afternoon).
Ryan was also scheduled to play the 'Cancer On The Rocks' benefit show in Nantwich on February 24th but this show has been postponed. Refunds should be available from point of purchase.

Kane Roberts new album 'The New Normal' is out today, and you can listen to it in full on Spotify (and presumably iTunes etc) now. The album features Alice on 'Beginning Of The End' amd Nita Strauss on 'King Of The World' along with assorted other guests.
