‘Detroit Stories’ Interviews
Phoenix New Times has a new interview with Alice, as does Australia’s ‘May The Rock Be With You‘ and ‘Flood‘ magazine.
Also Australia’s ‘Heavy‘ magazine has Alice on the cover and a new interview during which Alice again talks about the next album featuring the current band.
‘Louder‘ has Alice answering questions that were apparently sent in on facebook. Many other news sites have picked up on Alice’s answer about his relationship with David Bowie. Alice is quoted as saying:
“David used to come to the show when he was a mime artist, he was Davy Jones back then. I remember at one of our Welcome To My Nightmare shows, he brought his band the Spiders From Mars and he was saying, ‘This is what we should be doing.’
This is basically correct of course, but unfortunately Alice has the time period wrong. Years ago in his biography ex-Spiders bassist Trevor Bolder talked about this happening but it was in 1971 at The Rainbow in London, not four years later on the 1975 ‘…Nightmare’ tour. This mistake is unfortunate in that it is easy for people to just discount Alice’s statement as false (The Spider’s From Mars were long gone by 1975) when in fact the basic story, according to several sources, is true.
According to a post on facebook Alice will be a guest at the ‘Days Of The Dead‘ convention at the Plaza Hotel in Las Vegas between May 14th and 16th. The organizers seem to be doing everything they can to make the event safe during this pandemic and tickets are on sale now. Of course as with anything at the moment it could be postponed or cancelled at any time.
Alice’s appearance on the BBC Radio 2 ‘Rock Show with Johnnie Walker’ can be heard here for the next months or so. The Alice section isn’t very long and starts around 35 minutes into the show with him talking about Jeff Beck.
Alice also showed up for 20 minutes on the ‘Jim Kerr Rock’n’Roll Morning Show’ on Q104.3 which you can listen to here.
AZCentral has a long article marking the 50th anniversary of ‘Love It To Death’ looking at the Alice Cooper band through the years with quotes from the band and some rare photos.They also have an article ranking the 28 Alice Cooper studio albums which has a few surprises.
‘Far Out‘ has Alice picking musicians for his ultimate band. The choices aren’t exactly a surprise – half ‘The Who’ and half The Beatles’ and add in Jeff Beck.
Dennis Dunaway was on radio station CFMU for almost an hour the other night and you can listen to the show online here.
The latest ‘In The Trenches’ podcast from Ryan Roxie features the "Metal God" himself, Rob Halford and can be seen on YouTube now with some bonus footage tacked on the end.
