Alice has been chatting to Billboard about the forthcoming covers album, confirming a couple more guests on the album. We already knew about Johnny Depp, Joe Perry and Paul McCartney, and suspected Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl, but now AC/DC front man Brian Johnson, and Zack (son of Ringo Starr) Starkey are added to the mix. 'All My Dear Drunk Friends' is also confirmed as a song title, written with Depp and Bob Ezrin.

There's a new 'Nights with Alice Cooper' App now available from iTunes and the Googleplay store. Just search for "Alice Cooper" to download.

Lots more press today from the John Varvatos store opening. Alice played a 14 song setlist including most of the normal tour set but with 'Brown Sugar' replacing 'Revolution'. You can check out photos and video from the night here.
Alice and John were also on Detroit Fox News for a chat with extra footage here, and WXYZ for another video interview.

The following day Alice and Calico headed to the Cleveland Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for a VIP party ahead of the induction ceremony tomorrow, and there's video of that as well!

An article about a new John Varvatos store in Detroit suggests Alice will perform at the the grand opening on April 16th. It could happen, Alice previously performed at Varvatos's New York store party and took part in a Varvatos add campaign.
