'The Wit, Wisdom and Wickedness of Alice Cooper' is a 25 minute biography of Alice that you can see on Vimeo from Christian channel 'Life Focus'. It seems to have been filmed a little while back but only recently made available and worth watching if only for the wonderful comments from Sheryl Cooper about falling for Alice.

There's been a lot more press about the 'Super Duper' movie most of which is just short mentions, but include short interviews in Globe And Mail, and Daily Record. The movie hits theatres in the US and Canada tonight with a live simulcast Q&A from the Hot Docs Canadian Documnetary Festival afterwards. See if it's showing near you here.

The Hollywood Reporter has a short chat with Shep Gordon and a review of the 'Supermensch' film.

Alice Cooper drummer Glen Sobel is up for an award in Drum Magazine's readers poll/ Go vote here. Do it NOW! You can just vote in one catagory (Rock /Metal is the one for Glen), just put in an email address, select Glen, and scroll to the bottom to finish.

Finally in the 'good research' department we had Jewish Newspaper The Algemeiner with an article entitled 'Famed Jewish Rocker Alice Cooper surprises Diners at Kutshers' which reports how "Diners at New York's Kutsher's Tribeca were shocked to see Jewish rockstar Alice Cooper stop by for chicken liver during the Passover holiday last". Fortunatly for them they have since updated the story after readers pointed out their obvious mistake.

It has been announced that Orianthi will be playing with Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi) on his forthcoming European solo shows  (see below). As some of these dates clash with the Alice Cooper shows, now starting on June 28th in Michigan, it would appear that she won`t be able to play with Alice for, at least, the start of the Motley Crue tour.
This seems to be confirmed by a recent interview with Ori on the Polish Bon Jovi fanclub site where she says: "Well, now I’m gonna get back to L.A. for a while, and then I’m going back to Europe with Alice for a short run of shows . Then I’m gonna concentrate on recording the album and promoting it by touring with Richie. But if Alice calls me to join some of his shows and I’d be able to do that, I’m gonna join him, definitely. Alice is like a family, as is the rest of his band for me and I’d always be glad to join them."
As the Crue tour takes up most of 2014 this would suggest Orianthi will not be performing with Alice, barring guest appearances, for the foreseeable future. (Thanks to kstone for interview link).
Richie Sambora's European shows, with special guest Orianthi, are as follows:
June 15th Download Festival, Donington
June 17th 013, Tilburg, Holland
June 19th Beethovensaal,  Stuttgart, Germany
June 20th Kesselhaus, Munich, Germany
June 22nd Huxley's, Berlin, Germany
June 24th E-WERK, Cologne, Germany
June 26th Bataclan, Paris, France
June 28th Calling Festival, London
June 30th Olympia, Dublin, Ireland
June 1st Ulster Hall, Belfast, Northern Ireland
July 3rd O2 ABC, Glasgow, Scotland
