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.

Xmas Pudding 20 Dec 2006

Thanks to Barbara Miller you can find some photos from the Xmas Pudding show in the photo section with more to come shortly. Phoenix Fox News have a short video interview with Alice talking about the Xmas Pudding show.
Damon Johnson, who played with Alice, Dennis, Neal and Michael at the show had the following to report: "The night was great and there was lots of love for the Coop Band. The other musicians on the bill even had much enthusiasm and curiosity to see the original lineup. As a player and a fan, I was knocked out at how great Neal, Dennis and Michael played. Mike saved us all with cues throughout the show (we changed the set order at the last minute), and I felt like Alice had a great time simply hanging with the guys during the night. Wish we could have played more songs (we had "Muscle of Love" and "Is It My Body" ready to go, but there was not enough time). Was very special and incredibly memorable for me...truly and honor to be a part of it."
(Thanks Barbara, Mitch)

Mitch's interview with Dennis Dunaway (which can be found in the interviews section) has been translated and published in 'Crossroads' magazine in France.

Dennis Dunaway in Stripshow 24 Nov 2006

Alice Cooper fans maybe aware that the Icelandic members of the Michael Bruce Group featured on 'Halo Of Ice' and 'The Second Coming' have released a CD of original material with their own band Dimma. Dimma opened for Alice last year in Iceland and Dennis Dunaway has played with the band both live and on an upcoming album to be released in the spring of 2007 (You can see a review of Dimma´s debut album in the "Reviews" section). Fewer may know that before Dimma and the Michael Bruce Group, Silli, Bjarki and Ingo were members of the Icelandic rock band 'Stripshow' and released one album 'Late Nite Cult Show' in 1996. The album featured an original rock opera telling the story of a Freakshow in which the deprived "freak" slaves ultimately conquer their dictator and master of ceremonies. The album was released in Japan and South Korea where it was subsequently banned from all radio and TV play for "immoral" lyrics!! Needless to say this brought 'Stripshow' a certain notoriety in the music magazines in South Korea.
Since the bands break up, 'Late Nite Cult Show' has long since sold out everywhere and the album´s been virtually impossible to find for years. Until now!
To celebrate the albums's 10th Anniversary, it has now been re-issued in a "Special Edition Xtravaganza" of only 999 copies. Completely re-mastered from the original master tapes the CD features the banned video to "Where Are We Now?" and bonus tracks including the new "Here Comes The Spider" which was recorded by the original members of Stripshow last September with none other than Dennis Dunaway on bass!
The special edition includes a 12 page full color booklet with all lyrics, band photo and liner notes (all in English) and comes in a jewel case with a special de-luxe slip case. It's now available to order directly from the band for $20.00 (including shipping).
They are also offering the following package deals:

2 CD Package:
Price: $35.00 (incl. Shipping).

4 CD Package:
DIMMA - DIMMA (Debut album - Now sold out in stores!)

Reuters have a short article about the book deal reported yesterday.

Backstreet Boys member A.J. McLean credits Alice and Steven Tyler as influences in a short article over at AOL music. Says McLean "They're icons of the music industry and yet they're still dads, they're normal guys outside of work, do the same stuff we all do. And they kind of took me under their wings, like father figures, at these awards-show type of events. We can sit and talk for hours."

There's a small mention of Alice in the latest issue of 'Sweden Rock Magazine'. It's about "10 worst intros on hard rock songs" and the intro to 'DaDa' (the song) is on the list. They also have a story on the history of Hard Rock which covers 1994 and mentions 'The Last Temptation'.

The Sweden Rock Kick Off Show in Nalen, Sweden on December 2nd will be broadcast live on the internet. The show features 'The Sweden Rock All Star Band' featuring Ryan Roxie. More info on how to access the webcast can be found at SwedenRock.

Catching up on press from the last couple of weeks while I was away:

The Boston Globe has a short article talking to Alice about the radio show.

The East Valley Tribune has an interview about opening for The Stones. AZcentral has an interview with Alice but the show.

According to Alice has been rated the top classic Rock golfer in a new list compiled by 'Golf Digest'. He's actually #11 in the list but the top rock star.

As previously reported Alice received the Classic rock Magazine 'Living Legend' award at the Langham Hotel in London on November 6th. The award was presented by Brian May of Queen and Alice also received a £50,000 painting of himself. The BBC have a short report of the event with a pic of Alice. There's another pic at The Sun.

Apparently the Blu-Ray edition of 'Live At Montreux' turned up in shops last tuesday in the USA via Eagle Rock

According to Blabbermouth Keri Kelli has a new band called 'Saints Of The Underground'. The band feature Keri along with Jani Lane (ex-Warrent) on vocals, Bobby Blotzer (Ratt) on drums and Robbie Crane (Vince Neil, Ratt ) on bass and there are audio samples of two songs "Good Times" and "Signs of Life" at the web site of Blotzer's Diamond recording facility in Houston, Texas. The tracks come off the group's debut album, "Love the Sin, Hate the Sinner", tentatively due early next year and was mixed by Andy Johns (Stones, Zeppelin, Van Halen).

Alice can be seen in press photos for a new DAB radio from Pure Digital. You can see the pic at their site.

Oh, and the Rock and Roll Hall Of Shame have again ignored Alice in their 2007 nominations... but that's hardly news any more.

Book and Band News 15 Nov 2006

More info has turned up about "Alice Cooper, Golf Monster: My 12 Steps to Becoming a Golf Addict," which is to be published next year (pre-order from AmazonUS or AmazonUK). According to the New York Post Alice signed a $500,000 deal with publisher Random House for the book. Quote: The book "is billed as a candid look at his 35-year career, his drinking and his recovery, which was helped along by a new addiction to golf." It appears there will also be an abridged audio version of the book as well although no news whether Alice himself will be narrating it.

Upstage Magazine have a review of the Dennis Dunaway Project album 'Bones From The Yard' by Sickthing Matt Parish. If you haven't grabbed a copy of this album yet it's highly recommended.

Keri Kelli has updated his site with some behind the scenes pics from the halloween tour. Check them out at

Chuck has emailed me to point fans to an Ebay auction for a necklace with one of his guitar pics on it. It's not Chuck's auction but he thought it was cool. NOTE: Jaded is bidding on this so forum membrs beware haha.

Alice has apparently donated something to a new line of watch straps coming from Nixon watchmakers sales of which will benefit he MusiCares MAP Fund, a pool of resources set aside to address addiction and recovery needs of members of the music community. Not much more info on this but you can check out the report at

Ryan Roxie now has not one but two spots on Swedish radio. The first, as previously, reported is his cool two hour show over at Rocket.FM (2pm Sweden, 1pm UK, 8am EST) which is well worth tuning in for. The second is the "Roxie Rock Report" on Thursday mornings 7:30 am Swedish Time (6.30am UK, 1.30am EST) at Rockklassiker 106.7 FM click on "lyssna live" on top right corner) and says "if ya wanna really go nuts, call the station and request some Roxie77 when I'm on at 011 468 661 1067 (from the states) or 00 468 661 1067 (from Europe)".

And to continue the band members news thanks to Tabitha for pointing out that Damon Johnson has yet another project on the go. This time it's a country band called 'Whiskey Falls'. They have a MySpace page with photos, music and their first video. They also have a NASCAR which will be at the HBO Comic Relief show this Saturday. Later that day they will perform at the SLEM Tailgate Party promoting their new CD released through the William Morris Agency.

Classicrockrevisited have an autographed photo of Alice up for auction taken at the Moondance Jam show.  Also included is an original 45 of "Schools Out" and an original and unused jukebox tag for "Schools Out."  There is a ticket from the Moondance Jam included.  Quote: "This is the very show Alice was playing at in the photo. The entire montage is permanently mounted and framed and is very attractive to the eye.  Alice signed the photos specifically for this auction.

Note: The new German version of 'Brutal Planet' mentioned yesterday that has appeared on Amazon could well be a bootleg so buyer beware.

Back Home 14 Nov 2006

STUK is back home in the UK now so while I start to work through the mountain of mail that's waiting here I'll add a quick update on the most obvious things, in no specific order:

Alice is mentioned on Decembers edition of Classic Rock magazine

Alice is selling his Mustang on Ebay. Check it out here. There's a few articles about the auction as well but KNAC seems to have the main information.

'Nights With Alice Cooper' is now offering some very basic merchandise at Cafe Press.

SleezeRock has a review of the Boston show. Also related to the Boston show, there was no intro tape that night because some over-enthusiastic fan managed to mess up something on the sound desk just before they were due to start, pulling a lead out and causing big problems for Randy, Alice's the sound guy. This screwed up the beginning of the show for everyone else in the audience. If you are going to shows you should remember that the crew are just as important to the show as the band you see onstage. While they are happy to chat to fans when they have time please always remember they are there to do a job and do NOT touch the equipment!!

Alice appeared on the 'Late Show with Craig Ferguson' on Halloween night. This was pre-recorded when he was there last. I haven't seen it yet.

Alice appears on "James Bond's Greatest Hits" on Channel Four (UK) on 18 November at 21:00.

'Brutal Planet' appears to have been reissued in Germany with a new cover. Check it out here.

As I mentioned above, STUK will be heading Stateside on Monday to catch the Foxwoods halloween show on the 31st and take a little holiday in New Hampshire. While I will still have internet access, can receive mail, and update the news page occasionally, this will mean for the next couple of weeks I can't update other parts of the site. I will try and do news updates when I can but I suggest keeping an eye on either the STUK forums where news will be posted, or check out Hunter's Sickthings2 email list which is highly recommended. Normal service will return around 14th November.

The Sword of Alice Cooper 21 Oct 2006

From the official Alice Cooper Myspace:
"Alice did a show last night at Penn's Peak in Pennsylvania. Great show, great audience. During the concert, Alice was doing his thing with one of his swords and it got caught up in the dancer's whip and it went into the audience. Luckily, no one was hurt. But, the sword did wind up in the audience and evidently someone has a great souvenir. Alice would love to get the sword back. He is personally offering a reward of $500 (cash) for its return. Now, there is not even a question of someone being worried about being accused of theft or anything because the sword was NOT stolen! It was lost. Alice lost it himself. If something goes into the is pretty much fair game. Also, if someone can return it and they would like to come to the show in Reading, PA (very close to Jim Thorpe), Alice will provide 2 free tickets for the show as well as backstage passes to meet Alice and take a picture together with the sword. If you can return the sword, please send an email to"

Press 05 Oct 2006

New press today: The Evansville Courier-Press has a short Q&A with Alice and also has an interview.

Alice, Neal, Dennis And Michael - Together! 04 Oct 2006

This years Alice Cooper Christmas Pudding show is going to be a little special, especially for Sickthings. Alice has confirmed in an interview on that the star turn will be a performance by original Alice Cooper members Alice Cooper, Neal Smith, Dennis Dunaway and Michael Bruce who, along with the unforgettable Glen Buxton smashed records in the seventies, writing and recording many of the classic Alice songs. Says Alice:
"We’re actually doing a Christmas show in Phoenix (on December 16th). The Alice Cooper Christmas Pudding Show at The Dodge Theatre, and every year I get a bunch of guys together. Last year, it was Ted Nugent and Cheap Trick and the Tubes... It’s a five hour variety show and the money goes to the Solid Rock foundation - for inner city kids. This year I called Neal, Dennis and Mike and said ‘Why don’t you guys come in and we’ll do the original band for half an hour? We’ll do ‘Nice Guy’ and ‘Under My Wheels’ and ‘Eighteen’ and ‘School’s Out’ and all the hits and they said ‘Yeah sure.’ There never was any animosity between the band when the break-up happened. It was more like - everybody was just bushed. We were tired.”
The idea seems to have originated when Neal Smith guested on 'Nights With Alice Cooper' a few months ago. On the air Alice suggested getting Neal, Dennis and Michael to play at the Pudding show (The interview is available to hear on the NWAC website). After that there came the news that Neal, Dennis and Michael would be playing together at the Chiller convention in Secaucus, NJ at the end of this month and the scene was set.
Tickets for the show aren't on sale yet, but in past years have sold out very quickly. Normally they can be obtained via Ticketmaster or the Solid Rock Foundation directly (which aparently is the best bet).

Halifax 24 Sep 2006

Various reviews have appeared of last nights show with the Rolling Stones in Halifax but unsurprisingly they concentrate on The Stones' performance and barely a mention the other bands (so no point listing them). It does appear Alice went on during the early evening before Kanye West which seems rather odd, but then I've never heard of Kanye West before this so haven't a clue how big he may or may not be in the US. It does seem that Alice and the band got completely soaked in the pouring rain but still went over okay. From what little I've read the snake was there and Calico did her bit but beyond that I've seen no clues as to the setlist so if anyone has the details send them through. Jagger thanked all the opening acts by name during the Stones' set.
UPDATE: Thanks to Chris for the following:
"It rained for the whole set but Alice sounded really good. The band was soaked but sounded as tight as ever. Eric Singer was the only dry band member because a small tent structure was put over his drums and the amps. Alice threw out dirty diamonds during that song, he had his sword and money for 'Billion Dollar Babies', he actually threw his crutch into the crowd during the song 'I'm 18' . The stage setup was pretty much the same except for the coffin. Alice's makeup stayed on pretty good even with the rain. The set ran from 5 - 6 pm. They played some of Alice's songs before he hit the stage. Calico Cooper came out during the song go to hell - Alice disappeared under the drums. Very good set from the legend himself."
Setlist is now in the setlists section.
(Thanks Chris)

Alice has been spotted during an advert for Omega Watches currently running on TV presumably in the UK. I've not seen it yet.
(Thanks HeadbangersBall)

Alice In Homer 22 Sep 2006

According to Alice will be making a personal appearance in The Homer Mill, 109 Byron St., Homer, MI on October 11th from 7pm-10pm. Homer Mill is a haunted house, restaurant and arcade.

RecordOnline has a short interview with Alice today as a preview of the Poughkeepsie show. has a couple of quotes from Alice about the forthcomong Stones support show. Apparently they will be bare bone shows with minimal theatrics. "You have to just play rock-and-roll, so we're playing, like, an hour of Alice Cooper rock-and-roll. Now, it'll be theatrical, 'cause Alice is gonna be theatrical no matter what -- it just won't be the normal flow of an Alice Cooper show. And it'll be just great."

According to Alice is interviewed during a documentary included on the forthcoming 'The Groovie Goolies - The Saturday Mourning Collection' which is released in the USA on October 24th.
(Thanks Jeff)

Butcher Cover 21 Sep 2006

A little more info has turned up regarding "Butchering The Beatles: A Headbashing Tribute", the Beatles tribute album featuring Alice singing a version of 'Hey Bulldog' that we first mentioned some months ago. AmazonUK are now listing it for preorder with a release date of October 23rd. They also have a cover scan (see left). No sign of it on AmazonUS yet though. KNAC have an early review of the album.

If anyone in the UK is thinking of seeing Wednesday 13 while he's touring over here (before supporting Alice in the USA) then make sure you arrive early enough to check out support band 'Sign'. They feature Silli Geirdal on bass and Egill "E" Rafnsson on drums who played on Michael Bruce's "Halo of Ice" album a couple of years ago. You can find out more at their MySpace page.

Dennis Dunaway Interview and Hungry Hamsters 21 Sep 2006

Dennis DunawayThanks To Matt Parish for a new interview with Alice Cooper legend Dennis Dunaway now available in the 'Interviews' section. Dennis talks about the early days of Alice Cooper, Deadringer, BDS, and of course the Dennis Dunaway Project. Thanks Matt!

According to Alice will be voicing a hamster in the new HD CGI sitcom animation 'Hungry Hamsters'. Alice joins a a cast which includes Brian Blessed, who will play the leading character Maclean, Jack Davenport and Harry Hill.
Quote: "Hungry Hamsters is a new comedy animation series of 26 x half hour programmes for television and multimedia distribution, which has been created by comedy producer, Nick Sercombe. Cooper will be voicing Psalmanazar, the bête-noir character who opposes the Hamsters during their adventures. Chosen specifically for his highly individual personality, Cooper is deemed to make the perfect villain in the programmes and he loves the role; the first he has undertaken in an animation series for television.
Hungry HamstersSercombe commented that Cooper was selected for his dry wit as well as his performing talent. “Alice has already made some amusing suggestions as to the visual design of his character, Psalmanazar, and he is really looking forward to getting into the studio next year to record his voice. All the Hungry Hamsters voices have been chosen carefully for their colourful characters and now we have added the enormous theatrical talent of Alice Cooper, which is a real bonus."
Hungry Hamsters is currently in advanced development at leading Danish studio, Krogh Mortensen Animation. The series is being produced using the most advanced CGI ever used in an animated television series.

In reference to the recent downtime of STUK, I'm afraid there isn't a whole lot I can do about it. The problem is with the URL referer (not the host this time) who's machines keeps failing. They keep sending me reports saying the problem is fixed, and then it goes down again. Please be patient as and eventually they'll get it fixed permanently.

The news world seems to have really latched onto the story reported yesterday about Alice's new Teen activity center. It seems pretty much everywhere is running variations of those reported yesterday so here's the full press release from Asociated Press to avoid listing all the versions individually:
Alice Cooper to Build Teen Center in Ariz.
The Associated Press

PHOENIX (AP) For all the envelope-pushing Alice Cooper has done as a shock rocker, he also knows the value of boundaries, especially for children.
"Kids love boundaries. We used to fight against them. But in all reality, what we really did want was to know where we could go. Of course, you always step over the line just a little bit to see what's going to happen," said the 58-year-old rocker, known for his ghoulish makeup and hits such as 1975's "Welcome to My Nightmare."
Cooper said his Christian, nonprofit Solid Rock Foundation has begun fundraising efforts for a 20,000-square-foot teen activity center to be called The Rock, to be built at Grand Canyon University in West Phoenix.
The $3 million center will feature a recording studio, indoor basketball courts, rock-climbing walls, coffeehouse, game room and concert hall. Construction is expected to begin next year.
"People don't lay in the sun in southwest Phoenix. There's lots of shootings going, there's lots of meth going on, there's lots of gangs," Cooper said. "In the middle of all that is a bunch of 12-, 13-, 14-year-old kids that can go one way or the other."
Officials for Grand Canyon University, a private college with a Christian focus, came to Cooper with the offer to build the youth center on the campus. Cooper has given scholarships to the school for more than five years.
"We're not going to beat them over the head with a Bible," Cooper said. "But we're certainly going to be available to tell them that that's available to them."
Cooper, who spends about seven months of the year at home in suburban Paradise Valley, said that when he walks off the stage, "I'm going back to Phoenix, play golf, work on Solid Rock, go shopping and do everything that a father and a husband's supposed to do."
"I watched all of my best friends - Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Keith Moon - every one of them, die trying to live their image," he said.
"The one thing that my generation learned was `be a rock star when it's time to be a rock star.'"
(Thanks Dan)

The Independent has an article about 'pop's 50 most liberal lyrics' which includes a quote from Alice: "My favourite protest/liberal pop song is 'The Times They Are A-Changin'' by Bob Dylan. Dylan had such authority that when he said something, he really made it stick and people listened. He's the true poet laureate of America. 'Eve of Destruction', recorded by Barry McGuire, is also a great song but I can never decide if it's meant to be a comedy or not, although now it sounds pretty humourous. I hate protest songs that are one-sided and shallow - in fact there's a couple out now, although I won't mention any names - that I loathe."

Gwar pays homage to the original master of shock rock, with a bone-crushing version of his most famous song - that's right, Gwar has covered 'School's Out'."
(Thanks Blabbermouth)

Ex-Alice Cooper guitarist Pete Friesen will be back on tour with The Almighty in December. Check out the dates here.

Canadian fans should check at Dominion and A&P grocery stores for the newest addition to their line of "Chantilly Lace Teddy Bears".  It's called their Graduation Bear, simply looks like a regular teddy with a grad cap on his head and a 2006 sash across his body, but the magic comes when you push his paw when you will hear the original ACG recording of 'School's Out'.  And on the tag it simple says "School's Out  (Bruce, Cooper), 1972". There was a similar item a few years ago but it was a hamster!
(Thanks Liz)

Alice Golf In Wales 02 Jun 2006

The BBC and other sources are reporting that Alice Cooper is confirmed to take part in the 'All Star Cup', a celebrity golf event organised by TV stars 'Ant and Dec' at the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, South Wales. The event pits Hollywood A-listers against a team of famous Europeans over the August bank holiday weekend. Apparently members of the royal family have been approached to appear as well. Quote: "Ant and Dec, who will be hosting live coverage of the tournament for ITV1, said they were still in the early stages of putting the teams together but that experienced golfer Alice Cooper was "very excited" about it."

Photos, Adverts and Chucks Studio! 01 Jun 2006

Alice can been seen in a new television commercial for the 'Hall of Frames' stores in Phoenix. Apparentlly it all came about through Cooper's friendship with Jay Kogan, president of the locally owned firm. Reports AZCentral: "They were talking at Alice Cooper'stown, the rocker's Phoenix restaurant, about television and Cooper volunteered to be in the commercial. But the trick was to get it all done that day because he was leaving town. Kogan called some friends in the industry and found some others in the Yellow Pages and put together a crew fast enough to do the commercial in one day. "We've gotten a lot of recognition with Alice Cooper being in these spots," Kogan said."

Bill Crowe has excelled himself again with about 200 amazing photos of the Sheffield gig online now at AliceCooperPics.

Schwung Festival Coverage 30 May 2006

A quick catch up on news that came in while I was in Sheffield:

The Schwung festival site has a few photos to check out in Gallery 3.

Nieuwsblad has a review of the show (In Dutch). Thanks to Patrick the Alice part translates as: "The shock of the evening had to be Alice Cooper and so it was! The public even fell silent as it looked at the spectacle with growing amazement. Cooper himself was hardly to be heard through the guitar violence. Not everyone could appreciate the dark show ( huh ??) and some started to leave. By doing so they missed a brilliant Poison to end the Schwung 06." There's a small picture of Alice with a mention of “a breathtaking spectacle”. has some cool photos of the show as well. has a review if the show (again in Dutch) with photo.

Alice Not Stoned 25 May 2006

According to the June 6th Bergen, Norway show that Alice Cooper was scheduled to play with The Stones has been postponed due to Keith Richard's unfortunate tree falling incident, presumably meaning Alice won't be able to play any rescheduled show as chances are he won't be in Europe at that time.

(Thanks Patrick)

If you are a member of Emusic you can hear and download the soundtrack from the forthcoming 'Live At Montreux' DVD now on their site. The soundtrack CD of course comes with the DVD when it's released next week so probably not worth new people joining emusic just to download it but if you're a member you can hear it early!

Apparently he's trading up, starting from a paperclip, and has now reached "an afternoon with Alice Cooper"!! Rather then to go into detail here check out the story, and also the background to it at C-Net. Definitly one of the stranger stories STUK has reported on!

Help Out Runaway Phoenix 20 Apr 2006

Runaway Phoenix, the band featuring Alice's son Dash Cooper, are asking for a little help from all the Cooper fans out there. Here's the deal:

"Hello Runaway Phoenix here, we are asking for your help.  We recently wrote a song for Samuel L Jackson's new movie "Snakes on a Plane" and we need people to vote to get our song in the movie.  Both Dash and his DAD Alice would love it if you could go to, sign up (it's free) and then vote for the song by going to and clicking where it says "vote for you favorite song".
Thanks for all the support youve giving Alice over the years and the support you will no doubtably give to his sons band Runaway Phoenix.
-Chiko and Dash"

I'm sure everyone can realise how important it could be for a young band to get a song on a movie soundtrack, it could be a huge break, so if everyone could take a couple of minutes to help them out it would be really appriciated. Once you click on the 'vote for you favorite song' button, select "rock" as the genre and keep clicking on "next" until you find 'Runaway Phoenix' to vote.

TV and Goldmine 17 Apr 2006

Alice Cooper filmed a "very brief" cameo appearance on the TV detective show, "Monk".  No air date has been announced as of yet. You can find out more about "Monk" here.

Alice will also be on the cover of the next issue of Goldmine, #672, on sale April 28 which will include a new interview. Here's what they say in the previous issue's advert:
"Alice Cooper is, of course, the original shock rocker.  What people don't give him enough credit for is his David Bowie-like ability to bravely and provocatively re-create himself.  Even in the early days of wearing makeup, snake handling and the billion dollar babies, Cooper always had a deep understanding of entertainment that left his less cerebral competitors shaking their heads at his brilliant rock 'n' roll moves. This intelligence and good humor are evident in Goldmine's wide-ranging chat with Alice, aka Vincent Furnier. As a bonus, Cameron Strang, the boss of Cooper's label, New West Records, explains why Alice has found a home with a label best known for roots-rock."

Alice Cooper drummer Eric Singer can be heard playing drums on the song 'Sweet Victory' which was featured in the 'Sponge Bob Squarepants' episode 'Band Geeks'. The song, written by Bob Kulick and David Glen Eisley, also appears on the SpongeBob CD, 'The Yellow Album'. During the episode the character Patrick is seen playing the drums to Eric's track.

"The Unbelieveable Truth" 22 Mar 2006

(c) Bill CroweRumours have been circulating for a few days now that Ryan Roxie is leaving the Alice Cooper band but I wanted to wait for something official before posting the sad news. So here we go:

"After much thought and deliberation, guitarist Ryan Roxie has decided to forgo his six-string gunslinger duties for Alice Cooper to concentrate on becoming a Shoe Cobbler.....namely, Swedish Clogs. Although Mr. Roxie has no interest in shoes, his fasination with wood is unparalled...... But seriously, Roxie is taking time to be with his family and would really like to be able to play for the Godfather of Shock Rock again in the future. The Alice Cooper Rock Show will remain to be one of the most fun and entertaining shows out there mainly for one reason: ALICE COOPER! Roxie is just happy that he's had the opportunity to play for the Man in Black (black eye make-up that is) on and off for the past 10 years. He'd also like to wish Alice, the Band, and the die-hard fans good golf, great poker, and the best rock n roll tour imaginable in 2006......."
J.J. King-press secretary for Mr. Roxie

So there it is. This does NOT mean it's definitly the end for the Alice and Roxie show. My understanding is that after all these years it's just time for a father and husband to take a break and to spend some quality time with his family, something I'm sure fans can understand, and that next year Roxie will hopefully return to take his rightful place stage left. It certainly won't be the same without him.

Obviously STUK will continue to cover all Roxie related news and everyone here wishes him all the best, and we just hope this will allow him enough time to complete a new Roxie77 album!!

So who will replace the irreplacable? Current favourite for the job is Keri Kelli, who played with Ryan in Slash's Snakepit and Dad's Porno Mag and had stints with Ratt, Warrant, Skid Row, Adler's Appetite, Pretty Boy Floyd, and Tuff amongst others, as well as being a well known face on the L.A. scene. Check out Keri at
More when I get it.

Alice in Bulgaria? 21 Mar 2006

Robby posted that Ryan Roxie, Damon Johnson, and Chuck Garric were all at the NAMM Music show in California last week and performed a short acoustic set on one of the stands. The setlist was No More Mr. Nice Guy / Be My Lover / 18 / Unknown Song / Jailbreak (Thin Lizzy).

They didn't show him hitting the ball but as the network broke for commercial they did play a loop of the instrumental opening riff to Billion Dollar Babies.
(Thanks David)
There's also been a brief appearnce on TV from the Barret-Jackson auto auction mentioned a few days ago. Alice sold one of the three cars he was selling, a custom made silver and black 1939 Lincoln Zephyr Custom 2 Door Coupe with graphics based on the 'Dirty Diamonds' album. The hotrod had Alice's eyes and part of his face on the sides (like the album) with the dirty diamonds logo lettering in red on the trunk. He was also interviewed briefly on Speedvision.
(Thanks Mike, Bev)

Alice on US TV 16 Jan 2006

Alice is featured in a new VH-1(USA) special called "The Greatest: 40 Freakiest Concert Moments". It is a two part show that is being rebroadcast, Wednesday, Jan 18th at 8:00 PM EST. He comes in at the beginning of the second hour, ironically, at number 18. This time, it is not the chicken incident, but another famous incident caught on tape at the Cincinatti Pop Festival in 1970. Well worth the watch. Alice can also be seen commenting throughout the show on other events as well. If you miss it on Wednesday it will be rebroadcast more times there after. Click on the "Alice Cooper on USA TV" link on the right for a rebroadcast schedule.
(Thanks Devon)

Alice To Play Benefit? 13 Jan 2006

According to the OCRegister Alice will be apprearing on February 1st at the Cerritos Center, Cerritos, CA as part of a Hurricane Katrina Benefit show organised by Don Felder of The Eagles. The show will also feature Stephen Stills, Adrian Young, Tre Cool, David Foster, Tommy Shaw, Jack Blades, Gilby Clarke, comedian D.L. Hughley, and actor Dennis Quaid. Cheech Marin hosts. Tickets are $50-$200 and on sale at 10 a.m on Wednesday 18th of January.

But before that, according to the East Valley Tribune, Alice, and Sammy Hagar, will be making an appearance at the Barrett Jackson Collectors Car Auction at Westworld in Scottsdale, AZ on Sunday 15th. They are apparently "expected to drive their own vehicles onto the stage". Tickets are available from

Also: The new issue of Classic Rock has a couple of Alice Cooper mentions. In the piece about Max's Kansas City there is the story of the time when Iggy rolled in glass and was taken to hospital by the Coop, and also Wayne County says the Alice Cooper Group, pre LITD, were his fave band to play the venue. There's a small pic also. (Thanks Baz).

There is also a special '70s' issue of Classic Rock on the newsstands now and you would expect there to be a fair amount of Alice content in this considering how HUGE he was in the early 70s, however looking through it they seem to have pretty much ignored Alice with only a couple of brief mentions for 'Killer' and 'Billion Dollar Babies' included. Very odd.

Mankind Video Online 11 Jan 2006

Check out the Bloodrayne site and under the 'trailers' section you'll now find the full video for 'Mankind' including an special introduction by Alice. Slow connections (like me) will have problems though I'm afraid.

Monster Dog On UK DVD 01 Jan 2006

That film masterpiece 'Monster Dog' finally gets a UK release on February 20th and AmazonUK now have it available to pre-order now. If this is the same version as was released in the USA a while back don`t expect any extras, or even Alice's voice (as he's dubbed throughout except for the two songs), but still it's nice to have this finally available here.

Also watch out for February's version of 'Today's Golfer' which is out now and has 6 pages on Alice.
