Alice will now NOT be playing half-time during the Arizona Cardinals game Sunday. No reason as to why, but saves non-football fans watching and being disappointed.

While the Stooges, like Alice, have again not been inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Shame, an interesting piece of news has come up. Apparently, had the Stooges been inducted, they wanted Alice to induct them!

John Tatum Last year I heard from original Earwigs guitarist John Tatum who agreed to do a STUK interview, giving his insights into the beginnings of the group we know as Alice Cooper. For anyone interested in the early years John's memories are fascinating, as he was there at the very beginning, at that first Letterman's show at Cortez, in a Beatles wig! Check it out here.

Alice will apparently be playing half-time during the Arizona Cardinals game at the Univ. Of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale AZ this Sunday January 18th. Kick off is at 1pm.
