Below are the complete SickthingsUK news archives going back to 2004 when I first added news to the front page.
NOTE: The further back you go, the less likely it is that links and images will work, because the original sites no longer have the articles.

There's a few other things to catch up on from the Xmas week:

The Guardian had a short interview with Alice, parts of which have been repeated on numerous other sites. It's nothing particularly new, just Alice again talking about his dislike of mixing politics and music, but as has happened previous times other sites have grabbed hold of the comments and built their own news stories around them.

According to an interview with Joe Perry the new Hollywood Vampire's album is currently at the mixing stage and he hopes the band will play more shows this summer.

Rue Morgue Records have posted an article telling the story of the 'Live From The Astroturf' album with lots of photos and background info on the release.

Saturday's Christmas Pudding show seems to have been a success. As expected Joe Perry didn't make it, due to ongoing health concerns, but The Hollywood Vampires still closed the show in style playing a short set that consisted of I Want My Now / Raise The Dead / As Bad As I Am / Boogieman Surprise / My Dear Drunk Friends / Bushwackers / Baba O'Riley / Heroes / The Jack / Ace Of Spades and School's Out before being joined by the rest of the show's guests for the traditional closing 'Run Rundolph Run'. Earlier in the night Beasto Blanco also performed, and there were surprise appearances from Nita Strauss and Orianthi.
AZCentral has a full review with photos, and YouTube has some video from the show.

The soundtrack to this years TV production of 'Jesus Christ Superstar', featuring Alice as King Herod, has been nominated for a Grammy for 'Best Musical Theater Album'. The awards ceremony will be on February 10th.

It's been a pretty quiet couple of weeks, and I've been holding out for some bigger news to include the smaller things but there really hasn't been much, so here's a quick catch up before reports start coming in about tomorrows Christmas Pudding show.

Ace Frehley has been chatting about his touring plans next year and has suggested he will be playing shows with Alice Cooper around July/August next year. We only have two confirmed 2019 dates so far, and they are festivals, but there's no reason to think it isn't true and I still expect 2019 tour dates soon.

Guitar World has a new interview with Alice talking about some of the guitarists he's worked with over the years.

'Do You Know Jack' has a new interview with Neal Smith promoting his 'Halloween' KillSmith compilation album which you can listen to via YouTube.

New Jersey Arts has a report from the November 30th 'Wham Bam Thank You Glam!' show at the City Winery, NYC which featured Dennis Dunaway among others. They also have video of Dennis performing 'Under My Wheels' and a few words with Cindy Smith Dunaway.

AZCentral has a great interview with Calico Cooper talking about Beasto Blanco and her career to date.

The full version of Alice's appearance with Udo Lindenberg, performing 'No More M Nice Guy' a few months back, is now available to watch on YouTube.

Nita Strauss, who's still out on tour promoting her new solo album, is still getting a fair amount of press coverage. She's interviewed on 'Chasing Glory with Lilian Garcia' which you can find on Soundcloud

Some years back you may remember that guitar playing computer games were all the rage, and some had various Alice Cooper songs available. Well 'Rocksmith' is one such game that is still releasing content and they have a new pack of three AC songs available - 'School's Out', 'Poison', and 'Billion Dollar Babies'. They are available in the X-Box and Playstation stores.

It appears Rhino Records will be reissuing the original 'Greatest Hits' on vinyl early next year. No more details as yet.

So today's the day the full Good Records performance by the original Alice Cooper band is finally released to mark 'Record Store Day 2018'. The limited edition vinyl comes in a fancy gatefold sleeve and is supposedly only available from independent record stores, although some copies are already showing up on Ebay etc, which kinda defeats the object of Record Store day which is to get people into real shops. There's a cool little video of Alice himself opening up a copy of the album up on YouTube.
Congrats to Chris Penn and his team for getting this thing finally released, and good luck to everyone in getting your copy. It's sure to be instantly collectable (and expensive)!

Other then the Astrotuff release it's been relatively quiet news-wise this week but there are a few things to pass on.

Hollywood Vampire Joe Perry is out of hospital and resting at home. He's canceled all dates on his solo tour in December, and a statement says he will be resting up for the rest of the year but would be back in action next year.

Dennis Dunaway is interviewed Fidelity High about Van Morrisons 'Astral Weeks' album. Dennis daughter Chelsea is selling prints of her 2017 Chiller Theater poster of the original Alice Cooper band. They are 17x11 and you can see the design and buy a copy here.

Alice, Sheryl and Calico were all on Fox 10 TV last week promoting the Christmas Puddng show and you should be able to see the clip on facebook. The Hollywood Vampires are set to play the show this year, although after Joe Perry's announcement it's possible he will have to skip it. Time will tell. The Pudding show is on December 8th on Phoenix and AZ Big Media also have a short interview with Alice about the show.

As usual Nita Strauss has been busy promoting her new solo album and tour. She appears on the Metal Sucks podcast, and is interviewed by LA Weekly, and chats with wrestler Becky Lynch in a new video posted by her record company on YouTube.

Lastly something that isn't news, but more of a personal plee to some of the various musician I cover here. Please, please try and find ways to making your product pre-sales and merchandise ship from both the US AND somewhere in Europe. Many fans in Europe want to support your projects and order things, but in many cases recently the cost of postage and then probable custom charges when the package arrives here are just making it too expensive.
For example I ordered Nita's album on vinyl and CD via the bundle on NitaStrauss.com. The cost of the bundle was perfectly fair and I was happy to support her in her project, but the postage and customs charges added another $36 on the $60 order! If I had ordered the same things via the KIckstarter campaign the postage would have been even more!
I understand such additional costs are out of your hands directly, however some of your bandmates have had no problems arranging shipping from Europe and thus avoiding such extra costs, which lets face it is just money down the drain. After all we could just not pre-order at all, and simply buy it from Amazon later on. But we WANT to support you and be part of the project but it's becoming increasingly expensive to do so due to these other fees and charges. It was the same situation with Dennis' 'Cold Cold Coffin' campaign, and Damon Johnson's recent releases. The postage charges in some cases were more then the cost of the item, and likely we would be hit by customs on top of that as well. I await with dread the postage and custom changes on my Astroturf album package!!!
This isn't a complaint aimed at you guys, and I'm only using Nita's campaign as an example. It's simple a request that you consider this when arranging your pre-sales and deals, to see if there is any way to avoid these hefty charges, which don't benefit either yourself or your fans, many of whom have limited disposable income. Thank you for listening.

Ryan Roxie will be playing three UK shows in February next year to promote his excellent 'Imagine Your Reality' album. They are:
Friday February 22nd - Esquires, Bedford
Saturday February 23rd - The Asylum, Birmingham
Sunday February 24th - Cancer On The Rocks Festival, Nantwich
Tickets for the shows are available now, as are VIP upgrades which you can get at www.roxievip.blogspot.com and include a special three song set before the doors open amongst other things. Ryan will also be making an appearance at 'The Guitar Show' at New Bingley Hall in Birmingham on the Saturday, but this will be a guitar clinic kinda thing, not a proper show.

Hollywood Vampire Joe Perry was rushed to hospital Saturday night after he appeared on stage with Billy Joel at Madison Square Gardens in New York. “Following a guest performance during Billy Joel’s show last night at Madison Square Garden, Joe Perry experienced shortness of breath and was treated backstage by paramedics who gave the guitarist oxygen and used a tracheal tube to clear his airway before taking him to a hospital,” a statement reads. "This morning Perry remains in the hospital where he is alert and responsive. Perry is expected to return to the road later this month."

The Dallas Observer has an article about Chris Penn and the forthcoming 'Astroturf' live album, due out on November 32rd.

Dennis Dunaway is interviewed by 'Heavy Demons Radio' in Italy, which you can listen to in English on YouTube.

Nita Strauss has released a new 'Road To Chaos' video which you can check out here. It follows Nita on the recent clinic tour, with Alice, and training backstage.

By now most people will have seen the news that yesterday we lost comics legend Stan Lee at the age of 95. Lee was more then just a writer of comics, more then just a faceless publisher. He was 'The Man'... 'Mr Comics'... and his early work co-creating Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, The Hulk, Doctor Strange, Black Panther and many others changed comics, and eventually the world of entertainment itself. The stories he helped create, and possibly more importantly the way he chose to tell those stories, have effected generations of fans from youngsters just learning to read for themselves - me, age eight, when my father bought me my first Marvel book to keep me quiet while waiting at an airport -  to adults, still me, who still read comics for the simple escapism and enjoyment of the fantastic, the strange, the bizarre, the super... and the limitless options the format provides for storytelling.

Lee, along with his many colaborators, brought to the comics world the sense that these mighty heroes were not perfect. They had normal every day problems with school, home, family, love and loss like everyone else. Peter Parker could be out saving the world one minute, and getting in trouble with school bully the next - and it was often their none-super stories that were the most engaging. You tuned in next month as often to see where their relationships with each other would go as for the villain of the month. His stories showed that things didn't always go the way you planned, but trying to do the right thing was more important then anything - 'With great power comes great responsibility'. Something our "leaders" today could learn much from.

By the time Marvel published 'Marvel Premier 50' Stan had long moved from being a writer to simply being 'Stan Lee', the most famous face in the comics industry. He appeared on TV, in magazines, and every convention going, always promoting himself, and the company with his larger then life character, and such was the respect for him that even decades after he ceased to be directly related to Marvel, directors and producers still reached out to him to make cameos in all the big blockbusting marvel movies, something he appeared to relish.

While his passing is not that unexpected, it still leaves a hole that can never be filled. There will only ever be one Stan 'The Man' Lee. Excelsior!

Alice Cooper posted the following:
"Apart from being a hero in the comic world, Stan was so much fun to be around.  He had a regal air about him.  He was gracious to his fans too - he knew who he was to people and seemed to love every minute of it.  Of course MY absolute favorite thing about Stan Lee is that when Marvel drew me for my comic book, he made sure I had great abs. Thanks for that Stan!"

Blue Coupe will be playing at the Electric Ballroom in New Jersey with Monster Magnet, Frankenstein 3000 and the Ribeye Brothers on December 30th. Tickets are available now.

Kane Roberts has released a video for new song 'Forever Out Of Place' and released a few more details about his new solo album.

Good Records have released  a new promo video for the 'Live From The Astroturf' Record Store Day album which is due on November November 23rd. The track is 'Under My Wheels' and the video features footage from the show featuring the original Alice Cooper band. You can also see the video below.

December 14th sees the release of "MTV Unplugged 2 – Live vom Atlantik" by German star Udo Lindenberg. As the name suggests it's an acoustic live album and DVD, but of interest to us is a guest appearance by Alice himself on a cover of 'No More Mr Nice Guy'. You can check out a short video clip from the show here.

Houston Press has a short interview with Alice, while Glide Magazine has photos from the Atlanta show. Forbes magazine have a longer interview.

The Alice Cooper Band (Tommy, Chuck. Ryan and Glen) will play another special club show on October 25th at the Smiling Morse in Pittsburgh. Doors open at 10pm and support comes from 'Borstal Boys'. If you are wondering why Nita isn't playing at these band only shows it's simply because she's already booked doing guitar clinics so can't make them.

Speaking of Nita, there's a new interview with the lady from the Palace Theater in Albany courtesy of Q103 up on YouTube.

Ryan Roxie will also be making an appearance at Record Connection in Niles, OH on October 27th between 1 and 3pm for a meet and greet.

Ryan Roxie releases a new digital single from his excellent 'Imagine Your Reality' solo album tomorrow. The track is a stunning cover of Coldplay's 'God Put A Smile Upon Your Face', the closing track and possibly the highlight of the album. Roxie takes the rather insipid original and reinvents it as epic classic rock, destroying the Coldplay version completely. You can check out the new lyric video at YouTube or below, or on Spotify or iTunes.

The Hollywood Vampires will apparently be headlining this years 'Alice Cooper's Christmas Pudding' show on December 8th at the Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix. More performers will be announced over the coming weeks but tickets for the show will go on sale October 8th. This will be the 17th annual Pudding show, and as always will raise fund for Alice's 'Solid Rock' teen center. AZBigMedia has a few quotes from Alice as part of the show announcement. There's still no official release date for the second Vampire's studio album or the live album Alice has been talking about recently.

Syracuse.com have a new interview with Alice promoting the forthcoming show there. There's also an audio interview with ZackAttack from early September up on Soundcloud which I may have missed earlier.
