Notice, if you will the carefully trimmed shirt exposing the ornate belt buckle
and allowing easy access to the microphone holster.....years in the development.....

+1 on the pre-order front.....


Huge a well connected international roadie I know claims to have heard a whisper
that Alice has plans in the works for a tour (to relatively Covid-19 free) down-under
late 2021.....my only question was Vampires or Ol' Black eyes.....

This guy is usually pretty reliable, however these are strange times,
and he was trying to get me to shout him a jug of beer.....which I did.....

Very nice rock recording. It's as great as the last album. Not crazy about the Lou Reed cover, though.

Woo Hoo! my copy arrived a work this afternoon.....
I gave it a cursory spin but couldn't give it my full attention,
had people in the Ghostmobile on the way home so no dice there,
maybe tonight, although the Zappa motion picture soundtrack deluxe
turned up by surprise in my Post Office Box today, so there's some
stiff competition.....

Alice Cooper on Marilyn Manson abuse claims: “I never noticed that streak in him”
Manson has been accused of sexual abuse, grooming and manipulation

By
Nick Reilly
2nd March 2021

https://www.nme.com/news/music/alice-cooper-on-marilyn-manson-abuse-claims-i-never-noticed-that-streak-in-him-2892151

Alice Cooper has responded after Marilyn Manson was accused of sexual abuse by several women. Watch our full interview with Cooper below.

Manson, who co-headlined a US tour with the shock-rock icon in 2013, was accused of abuse, grooming and manipulation by actor and ex-partner Evan Rachel Wood and four other women last month.

Since Wood’s statement, more women have come forward with allegations about Manson, including actor Bianca Allaine, who said the FBI are involved with her case. Manson has always denied the claims, saying that all of his “intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual with like-minded partners”.

Responding to the allegations, Cooper told NME that he “never noticed that streak” in Manson.

“It’s funny about Marilyn, in that I know Marilyn – when we toured together we got along very well. I never noticed that streak in him, if it’s there. I always believe in the word, allegations are still allegations,” Cooper said in the latest instalment of our In Conversation series.

Cooper then went on to discuss allegations faced by his “best friend” and Hollywood Vampires bandmate Johnny Depp, who was previously accused of domestic violence against his ex-partner Amber Heard.

“First of all, here’s a prime example: Johnny Depp”, Cooper said.

“Johnny Depp and I are best friends. I’ve never seen him lift a finger against anybody. He’s one of the most gentle people. And all of his former girlfriends and wives say the same thing. So it’s really hard to believe that all of a sudden he’s gonna turn into this monster. And I know the guy — I’m with the guy on tour all the time. He’s one of the most gentle, harmless people I’ve ever met.”

Depp lost a libel case against The Sun in November after he sued the publication for calling him a “wife-beater” in a 2018 article. A High Court ruling deemed the allegations to be “substantially true”.

Focusing on Manson once more, Cooper added: “Now I don’t know Marilyn, though, as well as I know Johnny. So what happens in the bedroom is entirely a mystery to me for what’s going on with Marilyn.”

As well as accusations from Evan Rachel Wood, Wolf Alice singer Ellie Rowsell recently accused Manson of filming up her skirt without her consent when they met at a festival.

In the wake of the allegations, Manson has been dropped by his record label Loma Vista and his long-term manager Tony Ciulla.

He has also been axed from his TV projects and will no longer appear in American Gods or the Creepshow anthology.

Alice Cooper and Donovan recording “Billion Dollar Babies,” 1972

Recalled Donovan in 2014, "He was downstairs and I was upstairs at Morgan Studios
when he was doing 'Billion Dollar Babies’.
I had heard this track and he asked me to put a vocal on it and I said 'Sure.
But it's so big and so bouncy and so loud, I think I'm going to have to get into a falsetto!'
No one believed it was me! I think I did about half the vocals on that song.”

Alice Cooper says his first drug experience was with Jimi Hendrix on a "spaceship"
Alice Cooper reveals his introductory moment into the world of drugs was with the late legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix

https://www.loudersound.com/news/alice-cooper-says-his-first-drug-experience-was-with-jimi-hendrix-on-a-vibrating-bed
By Elizabeth Scarlett (Classic Rock) 2 days ago

Alice Cooper has revealed he's got probably one of the best drug stories in rock’n’roll history, and it involves a legendary guitarist, weed and alien technology.

Okay – maybe not quite the latter. But according to a new interview, the shock-rocker reveals he shared his introductory moment into the world of illegal substances with Jimi Hendrix on a “vibrating bed”, which the late musician referred to as his “spaceship”.

When asked to describe his first drugs experience, Cooper tells Ralph Sutton and Big Jay Oakerson on The SDR Show, “Weed was the first drug, and it was [with] Jimi Hendrix.

“I’m sitting there after the show. I went to see them. And we were just a little high school band. But they said, ‘Hey, come on up to the hotel room.’

“And we were sitting on his bed, and Jimi goes, ‘Here, man,’ [and he passed me the joint]. And I went, ‘Okay.’ And then he goes and puts a quarter in the bed – you know, the vibrating bed. There was, like, eight people sitting on the bed. And he goes, ‘We’re on a spaceship.’ And I went, ‘Okay.'”

Cooper then goes on to describe his worst experience with drugs, saying “it was Detroit, and I think it was crystal THC. It was, like, four in the morning. I regained consciousness. And I thought it [was] a Jim Jones thing. And I got up. I remember it was about 20 degrees below outside. And I walked outside just in my shirt on, just to wake up. And when I came back in, everybody was just kind of coming up.”

“It was weird; it was like a [Federico] Fellini thing. It was so strange that I really did believe that everybody was dead, and I was the only one that survived it.”
