This will be without a doubt a Rock ‘N’ Roll Spooktacular for all the Cool Ghouls”.  Alice Cooper added, “I'm looking forward to these concerts with Rob.  It's sort of like Dracula vs. Frankenstein, we're like this generation’s classic monsters. When we're not onstage frightening audiences, we'll be backstage trying to scare each other.”

Rolling Stone has a short interview with Alice, in which he again mentions the idea of making the 'Welcome To My Nightmare' show into a Broadway musical.

Alice was in New York on Thursday night attending the launch of Guvera, a new free download service supported by advertising, which launches in the U.S. on March 30th. You can read about the service here.

Rumour has it that Alice, and Cheap Trick, will be playing this years 'Rock the Park VII' in London, ONT, Canada on July 23th. This fits with what we've heard about dates in Canada around that time.

Ex-Alice Cooper and current Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Jason Hook has a new solo album on the way which will feature an Alice guest appearance. "American Justice" is due to be released in the next few months.

John Lydon (Sex Pistols/PIL) spoke about passing up the chance to appear with Alice at Hammersmith to The Guardian.  " wanted me to do School's Out with him," he said. "A sweet gesture but it's 'AHHHHHH!' y'know? As a young concert-going person I was never enamoured with celebrities who would walk out to feature in certain songs and then walk off. It struck me as being like Come Dancing. A little pony. And a little old. What old people do."

I've posted some photos from Tuesday's Keri Kelli - Chris Steel Steel Circle show at the Camden Underworld in the photo section. Due to lack of light in the venue they aren`t great but maybe of interest to some. They played a great show, well worth checking out on the remaining dates of the tour.

It was slightly worrying yesterday to read the tracklisting for the upcoming Slash solo album, and see it didn`t mention Alice. However it appears the song, co-written by Alice and Dash Cooper, is going to be a bonus track on a limited edition version of the album being released by Classic Rock Magazine. Entitled 'Classic Rock Presents Slash' AKA "The Slash Pack", the bundle includes the new Slash solo album, a 132 page magazine with interviews and photos from the sessions, poster, and includes two bonus tracks, one of which is 'Baby Can't Drive' featuring Alice. On top of that this version of the album will actually be released on April 7th before the normal version and will be available in places like WH Smiths in the magazine racks, as well as music stores who normally stock the magazine. You can pre-order a copy of the limited edition pack here.

CBS have posted a short interview with Alice on the Grammy's red carpet Sunday which you can watch here.
