ALICE COOPER – “I think there will eventually be a Broadway play just called Alice”

September 14th, 2011
Alice Cooper - Welcome 2 my nightmare

Alice Cooper - Welcome 2 my nightmare

In a new interview on the national news site Examiner.com with Alice Cooper, the rock legend gave his thoughts about his new album along with his opinions on KISS, Marilyn Manson and who should follow him into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (Burt Bacharach being his top pick!).

When asked what his next career goal was, Alice said:

“A Broadway play. I think there will eventually be a Broadway play just called Alice. And it’ll be about the life of Alice Cooper, all about the alcoholism; there’s a lot of great stuff going on in there. You’ve got the connection to Groucho Marx and Salvador Dalí, and there’s a billion ways to go with that. And I would love to see somebody else play Alice, you know? I think that that would be fun. Or I wouldn’t mind doing Welcome to My Nightmare parts one and two on Broadway myself and turn it into a Broadway play, but not water it down; keep it as electric and loud as it is in a regular concert. They kind of watered [the Who’s] Tommy down; when you put rock on Broadway they suddenly start making it viable to the 80-year-old in Iowa that wants to come in and see a show, and they start softening it. I would never do that; I’ll keep it just as hard as it is!”

Welcome 2 My Nightmare is available now. For more information and upcoming tour dates, visit Alice’s homepage at http://alicecooper.com.

STEVE HUNTER – Alice Cooper, Lou Reed, David Lee Roth etc

August 3rd, 2011
Steve Hunter

STEVE HUNTER

INTERVIEW BY MARKO SYRJALA

Steve “The Deacon” Hunter is an American guitarist best known for his collaborations with Alice Cooper and Lou Reed. Hunter is also well known about his long term association with record producer Bob Ezrin with whom they’ve been doing collaboration since the early 70’s. Hunter appeared on five classic Alice Cooper albums: BILLION DOLLAR BABIES, WELCOME TO MY NIGHTMARE, LACE AND WHISKEY and ALICE COOPER GOES TO HELL. Hunter, alongside with guitarist Dick Wagner, also appeared on the classic film ‘Welcome To My Nightmare’, which released on home video in 1976 and it featured the guitar battle between Hunter and Wagner. Both had played together in many different occasions before and after Alice Cooper including Lou Reed’s BERLIN and ROCK’N ROLL ANIMAL albums, Peter Gabriel’s solo debut and many more. Hunter quit working with Cooper in 1978 and since then the man has released several solo albums and worked with such names as Jack Bruce and David Lee Roth just to name a few in here. In March of 2011 Alice Cooper announced that Hunter would be returning to the band for the upcoming tour and brand new album entitled WELCOME 2 MY NIGHTMARE which is once again produced by Bob Ezrin.  Cooper’s latest NO MORE MR. NICE GUY tour reached Finland in early July and then we had a pleasure to talk with Mr. Hunter himself and hear the latest from Cooper’s camp as well as some great stories from the past as well.

Said Alice, “Steve’s always been one of my favorite guitarists since the first time I ever heard him play, and I’ve been working with Tommy a lot on the new album. Oh, and yes, a new snake might make the band lineup…you never know. We will miss Jimmy and Kerri, but I know we will be sharing a stage again in the future.”

SONISPHERE – Iron Maiden, Slayer, Alice In Chains, The Cult, Anthrax, Alice Cooper

August 27th, 2010

SONISPHERE 

REVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJÄLÄ

Sonisphere festival landed for the second time in Finland. Even though Sonisphere was once again the biggest metal event here with over 60 000 visitors, it made more headlines for other reasons other than it’s brilliant artists. A huge storm hit the festival area and winds ripped apart one of the main stage’s support scaffolding and sent it flying into the crowd. Altogether around 40 people were injured, with three requiring hospitalization. The accident delayed the concert for a few hours and all scheduled performances on the second stage were cancelled. Iggy Pop managed to play a short acoustic set on the main stage but Motley Crue was forced to cancel its entirely show because bands instruments were completely destroyed by the storm.
