The Band Speak... 15 Dec 2010


With their upcoming induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Alice Cooper, is acknowledged as one of the most influential bands in rock history. At inception forty years ago, the group shocked the world so fundamentally that it seems to have taken a preternaturally long time for their incredible talent to be recognized.

In 1970, Alice Cooper flipped hippie ideals on their head and astonished the world, “driving a stake through the heart of the Love Generation,” as the group’s namesake put it.

It’s arguable that without Alice Cooper, there might never have been KISS, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, Motley Crue, Slipknot or Rob Zombie... maybe not even David Bowie, or at least not Ziggy Stardust. Heavy Metal took the imagery, punk took the tunes, rock and pop took the showmanship and fans the world over fell in love with the macabre sense of humor. Amazingly, those fans have included legends as diverse as Peter Sellers, Groucho Marx, Salvador Dali and Bob Dylan who proclaimed Alice as an “overlooked songwriter.”

These days, artists as diverse as Metallica and Lady GaGa proclaim Alice Cooper's enduring influence on them.

True originals, Alice Cooper invented the concept of the rock concert as theatre with truly trailblazing stagecraft and showmanship in the early 1970's, with Alice himself continuing as a solo artist since 1975, remaining one of rock’s global megastars with well over 50 million record sales to prove it.

The surviving band members (guitarist Glen Buxton died in 1997) upon hearing the induction news provided the following comments:

"This proves that Glen, Neal, Alice, Michael and I (and all of our fans) weren't so crazy after all. I'm absolutely thrilled because, let's face it, this great honor is about as good as it gets." Dennis Dunaway

"Sometimes, aswe were blazing a new theatrical trail in rock, there were moments in the career ofour band that overwhelmingly exceeded even our monstrous expectations. Being inducted into "The Rockn' Roll Hall Of Fame, Class Of 2011,"with my four best friends Michael, the late Glen Buxton, Alice and Dennis, is one of those incredible moments for our one of a kind rock band." Neal Smith

“Take one part Yardbirds, one part West Side Story, starring Bela Lugosi and Bette Davis, and you have Hellzapoppin! and then POOF !! -- and you have Alice Cooper. Now if you can digest that, and the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame can digest that, we will happily be the Hall's arch villains. We are grateful from the bottom of our black little hearts." Alice Cooper

“The band that couldn't shoot straight strikes again, from having all our hits to being in so many Top 100 all-time polls -- be careful what you wish for because with hard work and perseverance and a good group of people like Neal, Dennis, Alice and Glen, you just might get it. It's just a shame that Glen couldn't be here with us to share in it, but we do also share this with (producer) Bob Ezrin and (manager) Shep Gordon, without whom..." Michael Bruce

About Time 15 Dec 2010

At the time of writing there still appears to be no official announcement up on confirming the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame inductees for 2011. Despite this, many sources are now confirming that Alice Cooper WILL be inducted. Alice himself has also confirmed this during an interview with AZCentral. Congratulations to Alice, Dennis, Neal, Michael and the Buxton family. The ceremony on March 14th will be aired on the Fuse channel in the USA, and it is likely the band will perform at the event as is traditional.

Hall Of Fame 13 Dec 2010

The official announcement isn't until Wednesday, but according to Industry website HITS Daily Double Alice Cooper, along with Neil Diamond, Tom Waits, Dr John and Darlene Love, will be the artists inducted in 2011. This is NOT official however, and it won't be until Wednesday before we know for sure.

It is my sad duty to report that Glen Buxton's mother, Jerri Buxton, passed away a couple of days ago. Many fans met Mrs Buxton at the now legendary GB Memorial Weekends, where she and her husband Tom were happy to chat to fans paying in tribute to their legendary son. Our thoughts to go out to the Buxton family.

More Rock Hall 28 Sep 2010

Alice Cooper has released the following statement on their nomination to the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame:

"On behalf of Dennis (Dunaway), Neal (Smith), Michael (Bruce) and the late great Glen (Buxton), we are honored to be nominated for induction in to the Hall. Anytime you are nominated in your chosen profession, it's definitely a compliment to be recognized.

It's hard to fathom possibly being in the same club as artists who inspired us originally, like the Beatles, the Stones, the Beach Boys, the Who, the Yardbirds, and Chuck Berry, and to be nominated the same year as legendary artists like my personal favorite songwriter of all time, Laura Nyro, as well as Donovan, who sang on our "Billion Dollar Babies" record, and our good friends in Bon Jovi, is a great feeling.

Five guys starting a band, just hoping to meet girls and drink free beer, rehearsing and playing local bars five hours a night for the first few years -- that was us. We came up with the theatrics and made every effort not to sacrifice the music one bit; we thought it was like our job to bring theatrics to rock 'n' roll. And then, amazingly enough, we were having a bunch of massive hit records which was proof that theatricality and rock 'n' roll could, in fact, be joined successfully. We've been told that we revolutionized the live concert experience and if that's truly the case and it's led to this nomination for induction into the Hall of Fame, the only thing to say is, of course, "There's no business like show business!" - Alice Cooper

Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame 28 Sep 2010

It's my duty to confirm that the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame has finally included Alice Cooper (the band) in their nominees for induction in 2011. Alice Cooper, who were first eligible for the Hall Of Fame back in 1994, have long been held as one of the most glaring omissions to the Hall which is also still missing many of the most influential artists in rock including Deep Purple, Yes and Rush to name just a few. Of course nomination doesn't mean he will be admitted, so look at the list he's up against and make up your own minds which five will get in: Bon Jovi, Tom Waits, Donovan and Neil Diamond, plus previously nominated acts LL Cool J, J. Geils Band, Beastie Boys, Donna Summer, Chic, Dr. John, Laura Nyro, Joe Tex, Darlene Love and Chuck Willis.
Last year, nominating comittee head Jan Wenner was said to be considering reducing the length of time needed to be elligible from 25 years to 20 as he believed there weren't enough worthy acts left, yet it has taken this long for them to acknowledge the legend and influence of Alice Cooper which has been obvious to everyone else for decades. Even Alice himself has frequently made jokes about the place when asked, especially on 'Nights With Alice Cooper' and has been baffled but their annual snub.
Of course Alice is too gracious not to accept should he get voted in, and it's excellent that it is the whole band being nominated, but at the end of the day it is way too late for this to have much real meaning to most when so many artists heavily influenced by Alice Cooper have already been inducted, some many years ago.

A Night To Remember 09 Aug 2010

Press Release:

Sonisphere Finland Hit By Storm Causing Extensive Damage, But The Show Must Go On

We all survived Sonisphere Finland. An amazing experience for all of us who were there -- bands, crews, and fans alike.

At around 3:45 PM, during the set change on the main stage after Slayer and before Alice, with Alice's crew setting up the gear, and Maiden's crew beginning to set up THEIR gear behind Alice, a tornado-like "weather event" hit the festival site, with the two stages right in the bullseye.

At the second stage, Iggy & The Stooges were about to go on, and Motley's crew were setting up their gear to follow the Stooges.

Both stages got hit hard, with the second stage rendered useless when part of the ground support (which holds up the lighting, sound and roof) collapsed. On the main stage, the huge Sonisphere backdrop was ripped off the back of the stage, and crashed down onto Alice's equipment truck.

Thankfully, nobody on either stage was seriously injured, though there were a lot of cuts, scrapes, abrasions, headaches, and frayed nerves.

What had been a warm sunny but muggy day turned ugly within minutes, as the storm rolled in with high winds, dark clouds, and violently intense rain and, suddenly, hail, as the wind swirled, the trees swayed, and it became dark as night.

Everyone was yelling to get off the stages NOW, forget trying to save the gear, run for safety.

Within minutes, the skies cleared and everyone raced back onto the stages to make sure everyone was OK, and to begin checking gear. Luckily, no band members or crew were seriously hurt, some crew suffering scrapes, cuts, bruises, abrasions and a lot of frayed nerves.

Unfortunately as many as forty of the fans at the festival were injured during the storm, a few of them seriously, and everyone is hoping that they recover.

The second stage was declared closed and unsafe, which meant that the Stooges and Motley's performances had to be cancelled. Alice's and Maiden's crews were working feverishly to see what, if anything, still worked, and what they could possibly do, because the Main Stage seemed mostly OK, though soaking wet and without a backdrop.

While they, and the local stage crew, were working to dry everything out and try to put their shows back together, Slayer offered their gear, which had been loaded safely into their truck just before the storm hit, and Alice ended up using some of their band gear and their monitor rig.

Gear belonging to Alice, Maiden, Motley and the Stooges was seriously damaged, some ruined beyond repair.

Meanwhile, Iggy came over to the Main Stage and performed a short and very special "acoustic" set with just guitarist James Williamson and sax player Steve Mackay, which the crowd loved. The rainsoaked crowd waited calmly after being informed that Alice and his band and the Maiden guys, and especially their crews, were doing everything possible, and were determined to perform.

The long wait paid off after three more hours, when Bruce Dickinson walked onto the front of the Main Stage and thanked the fans for their patience and then introduced Alice, to a huge roar, as the band launched into "School's Out" and Alice took command.

Afterwards, Alice's crew took well-deserved and hard-earned showers and had some dinner, and off we went to Helsinki to move on to the next show, with the sound and fury of Iron Maiden's show fading into the distance of the night.

The fans who waited got the show of a lifetime. One that nobody who was there will ever forget.


In addition the band and management would like to thank everyone for all the kind messages they have received through various avenues checking if everyone is okay and well. You guys are the best!

Partial refunds are being instigated automatically, and the say the new support for the show is "the lead singers of classic rock’s Rare Earth, Sugarloaf, Blues Image and Iron Butterfly". This sounds like it will be "The Classic Rock All Stars" which feature former 'Special Forces' guitarist Mike Pinera (Blues Image/Iron Butterfly), Rare Earth original lead singer Peter Rivera and Sugarloaf original lead singer Jerry Corbetta but this is yet to be confirmed.

Alice And Bob Ezrin 24 May 2010

Posted to Blabbermouth:
Alice Cooper has begun work on a new album, to be produced by Bob Ezrin as part of a new joint venture with Bigger Picture Group.

Ezrin has a rich history of hugely successful collaborations with Alice, including such groundbreaking albums as "Billion Dollar Babies", "Welcome To My Nightmare", "School's Out" and "Love It To Death" and has, in the past, been described by Alice as "our George Martin."

Ezrin is a partner in Bigger Picture Group, a Nashville-based company that has been instrumental in contributing to the success of numerous artists, including country music sensation ZAC BROWN BAND. He remarked, "I am delighted to be back in business with Alice Cooper and Shep Gordon's Alive Enterprises and our whole company is over the moon about this collaboration. This is not a record deal but rather a partnership that involves virtually all aspects of Alice's ever-expanding universe. And it's a reunion with the first artist I ever produced and the first great manager I ever worked with. I couldn't be happier."

Bigger Picture will contribute to strategy, staging, special products, theatrical projects as well as the production, promotion and distribution of future Alice Cooper releases. The company will utilize its distribution agreement with Warner Music Group when the new Alice Cooper album, projected for release early next year, and other recorded product launches. A tour themed to tie in with the album, the concept of which is being kept under wraps for the moment, is being planned in support of the release.

Ezrin's career has seen him work with some of the most enduring names in music including PINK FLOYD, KISS, PETER GABRIEL, JANE'S ADDICTION, LOU REED, DEFTONES and scores of others but traces its earliest successes to his association with Alice Cooper, the band and the man.

Alice Cooper remarked, "It feels great to be working with Bob again and the entire Bigger Picture team have been tremendously supportive. Lightning has struck more than once in the past with Bob's involvement so we feel great that we're onto something really electrifying now that we're together again. The album we're crafting is, in some ways, a 'shriekquel' to what's gone before and there's no better guy to oversee things than Bob."

Shep Gordon, whose Alive Enterprises has managed Alice Cooper since his professional debut called the deal with Bigger Picture "a paradigm for the modern music business." He commented, "We're working with Bob not just on a brilliant new Alice Cooper album but in building upon the great strides Alice's career has taken recently." He cited "Nights With Alice Cooper", the internationally syndicated daily radio show that Alice hosts over a network syndicated through United Stations, the "Gruesome Twosome" tour that has seen Alice Cooper and acolyte Rob Zombie share bills throughout North America as well as an upcoming Alice Cooper arena tour. He also noted that "The Coop" would be headlining a string of festival dates this summer in France, Germany, Belgium, the U.K., and Scandinavia. "Awareness and appreciation for Alice is at an all-time high these days," he remarked. "Bigger Picture is getting in not on the ground floor but as the elevator is zooming to the top and they're efforts will, doubtless make this a much faster ride."

In a recent interview with, Alice Cooper was asked if there are any plans for a new album. Alice replied, "Ten songs are written already. It's going to be called 'The Night Shift'. The concept is, it's a really dark radio show where I'm the disc jockey, and every song I play will be by a different fictitious band. At some point, you'll realize this disc jockey is a little bit more than that. And I'm sure there will be some kind of a twist ending."


Alice joined Rob Zombie at the end of Rob's set in Toronto this weekend. Rob said some nice things about Alice before encouraging the audience to call "the Coop" back for one last song. The Song? 'School's Out' of course. There's a review of the show at the Toronto Sun.

Catching Up Again 18 May 2010

From Billboard:
At the show Sunday night at Lazerfest near Des Moines, Iowa, Alice Cooper and his band inserted a bit of Sabbath's "Heaven and Hell" into their final song, "Under My Wheel," dedicating it to Dio. Bassist Chuck Garric played with Dio prior to joining Cooper's band, and both Cooper and Garric taped a special segment for the syndicated "Nights With Alice Cooper" radio program talking about their late friend.
"We used to have a lot of fun with Dio on the road," Cooper recalled. "(Drummer) Eric Singer could not help going 'Holy Diver!' as loud as he could to the point where the manager finally says, 'Could you stop doing that? It's starting to annoy Ronnie.' And of course you don't say that to Eric Singer, because that just means he's going to double the efforts."
Garric added that Dio was "such a genuinely nice guy and welcomed me with open arms. From the moment I walked into the rehearsal rooms to audition, I felt at home...It was one of the greatest moments of my life, and it had changed my life. I owe him everything."

US show "Good Morning America" is currently running a 'Living The Dream' contest and one of the entrants is Pastor Mark Wilkins (age 49 of Indiana) whose dream is to be on stage with Alice Cooper!

Ronnie James Dio 17 May 2010

From the 'Nights With Alice Cooper' Twitter Feed: "Alice and bassist Chuck Garric (RJ Dio alum) pay tribute to Dio with songs/rememberances in tonights show."

Here are some other Cooper related tributes to the legendary Ronnie James Dio, who sadly passed away yesterday. I'll add more as and when I see them.

Chuck Garric:
"I had the privilege to play Bass for Ronnie James Dio. He is going to be missed.. R.I.P my friend"

Damon Johnson:
"Sing me a song, you're a singer
Do me a wrong, you're a bringer of evil
The devil is never a maker
The less that you give, you're a taker
R.I.P. Ronnie James Dio"

Randy Meullier (Front Of House Sound):
"I remember in 2002 when I was mixing Ratt and we were opening for Dio and Alice Cooper in Scandinavia. sitting in Ronnie's dressing room sharing a funny story about a certain guitar player and us both laughing our asses off. He had a funnier one. me, the opening act sound guy sitting with a legend. He always remembered me by name every time we crossed paths. it was an honor to have spent some time with him."

Joe Bouchard (BDS/Blue Coupe):
"That's very sad. I've known him forever it seems. I used to follow Ronnie Dio and the Prophets back in the early 60s. The Electric Elves, precursor to Elf, were always playing my college in Ithaca NY. We actually gigged for the first time together on a double bill with my college jazz band at a saloon called the North Forty in Ithaca.
I thought it was real cool he landed his gig with Rainbow, and I was blown away when he took over for Ozzy. Heaven and Hell and Mob Rules are fantastic recordings on every level. We spent most of 1980 together on the Black and Blue Tour. We had many nice talks about the old days on that tour. Very sad indeed. RIP Ronnie."

In related news Damon also posted the following update on his forthcoming solo album:
"Generation Landslide" is my favorite Alice Cooper song of his entire career. It was a good day when I came up with the idea to cut my own version of it, more than anything as a tip of the hat to Coop in gratitude for all he's done for me. And it was an even better day with I called to ask him if he'd play harmonica on my track and he quickly said, "of course". Meredith and I flew to Phoenix and tracked Alice in his studio in his house, and he totally blew our minds by performing the harmonica part, literally, note-for-note the way he did on the 'Billion Dollar Babies' album in 1973. And to top it off, he graciously sang the 2nd chorus with me. As my buddy Audley says, "That's hot!"

Alice Guests On Damon CD 17 Mar 2010

From Damon Johnson:
Damon Johnson is in the final stages of recording a new solo acoustic album, tentatively titled, "Release". This will be his first solo release since his debut, "Dust", in 2000. "There was a stack of songs sitting around that I felt I'd be proud to have a recorded version of me singing them," Damon says. "For all the different projects I've been involved in, the one thing they all have in common is great songs. It's been amazing to be able to collaborate and learn from all these great musicians and songwriters."

"Release" is being recorded at Kensington Road Studios in Birmingham, Alabama and will showcase a diverse array of material. There are a couple of songs that have been staples of Damon's live acoustic shows in recent years, like "Leave It All Behind" and "Everyday", which Stevie Nicks recorded a version of in 2002. Several songs will feature a full rhythm section accompaniment, and Damon's daughter Sarah duets with him on "Better Days Will Come At Last" and a cover of Shelby Lynne's "Where I'm From". "I've lived in Birmingham since 1987," Damon says. "As I'm getting ready to move my family and start our new life in Nashville, this album is sort of a love letter to Alabama."

The new album will also contain a cover of Damon's favorite Alice Cooper song, "Generation Landslide", featuring Alice himself on harmonica. "I've wanted Coop to add this song to the live set ever since I joined the band. The original version from "Billion Dollar Babies" is centered around the acoustic guitar, and we've stayed true to that arrangement. We had a blast recording it."

The album will be mixed by Damon's longtime collaborator Kelly Gray, and should be completed by June 1. "Release" will be available for purchase at iTunes, CD Baby, and at

Alice In Art Book 02 Jan 2010

"The Art of Classic Rock: Rock Memorabilia, Tour Posters and Merchandise from the 70s and 80s" is the rather long title of a new book out now from Goodman Books. Put together by Rob Roth (who is also the 'Alice Cooper's Theater Of Death' show producer) and Paul Grushkin, it's a large format coffee table book featuring six different artists and the posters, promos etc that they've released over the years. Of interest to us is the fact that one of the artists is, of course, Alice Cooper, and there's over 25 pages of AC related content, as well as a short introduction by Alice. Current available at the bargain price of just £12 from AmazonUK but is also listed on AmazonUS.

VH-1 show "100 Most Shocking Music Moments" features Alice making comments on various events. I didn 't list this before as VH-1 already did a show like this, with almost the exact same name some years ago and I assumed it was a repeat. Apparently it isn 't, even though Alice is apparently talking about Jim Morrison again and it features the Chicken Incident at #17. It ran in five one hour shows before Xmas but presumably will be repeated.

Radio station KOZZ has some pics of the Alice show in Reno, and if you check out the photos of LA Guns you'll find some pics of Chuck Garric at the show as well.
