INTERVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA
Eric Dover is an American vocalist and guitarist, most notably working with Alice Cooper, Slash’s Snakepit and Jellyfish. Dover joined Jellyfish in 1993 but the band disbanded just one year and he then formed a new band called Doverman with Roger Manning. In 1995 Dover joined Slash’s short lived Slash’s Snakepit and recorded album IT’S FIVE O CLOCK SOMEWHERE with the band. Manning and Dover re-grouped in late 1995 and formed another band called Imperial Drag. The band released its self-titled debut in 1996 but broke up one year later. In late 90’s he did join Alice Cooper’s band. Dover stayed altogether over four years in the band and recorded album THE EYES OF ALICE COOPER in 2003. After quitting with Cooper, Dover has been working on various studio sessions, project bands like Starfuckers and his own band Sextus which has released two albums to date. However, it was band Lost Angels which finally bring the man back in Finland, for the first time since 2004. The band is a kind of all-star band featuring past and current members of Cinderella, White Lion and of course Alice Cooper. The band landed in Helsinki on early January and then we had a pleasure to sit down with Eric and discuss about the past, present and future as well.
