Marko Syrjala of Metal-Rules.com recently conducted an interview with ALICE COOPER sticksman Glen Sobel (IMPELLITTERI, ORIANTHI, BEAUTIFUL CREATURES, PAUL GILBERT). In the interview, Sobel discusses how he came to tour and record with the legendary shock rocker, working with producer Bob Ezrin (KISS, PINK FLOYD, JANE’S ADDICTION), and the many other records and bands he has been a part of over the years. The Q&A is posted at this location www.metal-rules.com/
Sobel finished drum tracks for the forthcoming Alice Cooper covers record in August. Due out in 2014, the collection of classic tunes will feature a variety of special guests. Alice Cooper and band have just wrapped up the 2013 “Raise The Dead” tour with several dates on the West Coast, with the final show taking place at Pearl at the Palms in Las Vegas on November 27. Afterwards, Sobel, along with Cooper band mates Ryan Roxie, Chuck Garric, and Tommy Henriksen, joined local all-stars SIN CITY SINNERS at The Lounge at the Palms to perform several songs, including “20th Century Boy” by T-REX and “Sedated” by THE RAMONES, among others. Video of the jam can be seen here: www.youtube.com/watch?
Alice Cooper will resume touring next year with several worldwide dates yet to be announced. Cooper is set to headline Sweden Rock Festival on June 5, 2014.
Sobel will join L.A. guitarist Jeff Kollman (BOMBASTIC MEATBATS, COSMOSQUAD, GLENN HUGHES) and his band this Thursday, December 5 at the Baked Potato in Studio City, CA.
