Below are the complete SickthingsUK news archives going back to 2004 when I first added news to the front page.
NOTE: The further back you go, the less likely it is that links and images will work, because the original sites no longer have the articles.

Thursday Nights show in Reading, PA has changed venue from the Santander Arena to the Santander Performing Arts Center apparently to create 'a more intimate concert experience for fans'. All tickets remain valid.

Shep Gordon's Book 'They Call Me Supermensch' is out now, and although I haven`t seen it yet (mine's still on its way from the US) I'm hearing good reports. Gothamist talks to Shep about the book and hs long career and Amplify has a review.

Alice has a few words with TribLive before the Indiana show. He also appears in a new trailer for a documentary called 'Danny Says', the story of music manager, publicist, journalist, and author Danny Fields.

The November issue of Mojo magazine (Lou Reed cover) has a couple of pages on Alice Cooper including a list of the top ten Cooper albums as voted for by readers. While the top entries are probably predictable it's nice to see such a good showing from 'Dada'. The magazine should be on the shelves in a few days.

Most of you will have heard that we lost another legend this week in actor Gene Wilder. Alice has long been a huge fan, sometimes listing 'Young Frankenstein' as one of his favorite films, and he also worked with Wilder on his short lived TV show 'Something Wilder'. Alice posted the following message: "I count working with Gene Wilder on his TV sitcom 'Something Wilder' to be one of the most precious memories of my entire career. Doing "one on one" comedy with Gene was like jamming with The Beatles. It doesn't get any better. Gene Wilder is irreplaceable and will always be an American treasure." has a live review and photos from the Casino Del Sol show.
