Calico Cooper is featured in the upcoming February issue of 'K9 Magazine', the most read dog magazine in the UK. Says editor Ryan O'Meara "As soon as we found out she had a dog we jumped at the opportunity to do the interview. Most of our staff are huge Alice fans!" The mag also has a MySpace page here.
Here's an exclusive sneak preview of the interview:
Tell us about your dog.
Captain Jak is a rescue dog. He is the classic rags to riches story. He was found on the Pasadena Freeway, scared to death with one eye, a broken tail, and a wicked under-bite. Now he lives in a cushy 5 bedroom house in Los Angeles, has gained almost 4 pounds, and pretty much rules the place!
When did you get your first dog and can you remember what the feeling was like, early days, initial problems, fun etc? My very first dog's name was Lestat. She was our family dog. She was a beautiful German Shepard, and was very maternal. I used to sleep under the Grand piano with her, and she treated me like her puppy. If i would wander too close to the pool, she would grab my dress with her teeth and gently tug me back toward the house! Once, while we were out of town, someone broke into our house in Los Angeles. Lestat, who was a gentle giant, had to attack the burglar to protect the place. The robber stabbed her in the shoulder with a screwdriver, and without batting an eyelash, she chased him out the front door and down Mullholand drive!

Tell us a secret from the Alice Cooper tour bus.
After all the blood and glitter on stage... we eat pizza and play poker all night, all while wearing funny hats/costumes, (i.e.. viking helmets and Graduation caps) and listening to the most obscure mix of music we can find. The soundtrack to West side story, various underground garage rock, old banjo country, and Bee Gee's lost tracks. We giggle and carry on like teenagers. Its kind of like a highschool sleepover... for 6 months straight.
