Alice Cooper, All-American Boy Exposed InTheStudio

Dallas, TX - July 15, 2014.  North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio with Redbeard: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands presents a tutorial on why little boys shouldn't play with meat cleavers, nooses, high voltage, snakes, and Mommy's make-up and fishnet stockings'unless you plan on going into show business as the King of Shock Rock, Alice Cooper!

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Alice Cooper is on the road and on the big screen this summer, touring with his rock progeny Motley Crue (just one of the hundreds which Cooper inspired), and featured in a new documentary film/dvd titled Super Duper Alice Cooper, so the time seems right for Alice's brand of wrong for InTheStudio.

The band Alice Cooper made notorious headlines but few fans when they first appeared on the radio in 1971 with Love It to Death. Alice's stage act then was confrontational, even horrifying, and without the campy humor that would inform the act just two years later on Billion Dollar Babies

But what made Alice Cooper a household name was the savvy string of hits, indelibly changing the rock concert world while revolutionizing American Top 40 radio at the same time with 'I'm Eighteen', 'Under My Wheels', 'Be My Lover', 'School's Out', 'Elected', 'No More Mister Nice Guy', 'Welcome to My Nightmare' and 'Only Women Bleed' from five Top 10-selling albums. 

The career ride for Alice Cooper careened from the whole band sleeping in one motel room to the covers of Time and Newsweek magazines; from fairways to national airwaves; from rehab to Rock Hall in 2011.  Alice reflects with InTheStudio host Redbeard on why Alice Cooper connected then, and lives on today.

' I think it was because we were such a shock to the nation, image-wise. We were the band that drove the stake through the heart of the Love Generation. Everything that the hippies didn't believe in. For the first time in a long time music was not political, it was fun! Alice Cooper was like the biggest juvenile delinquent Rock and Roll horror show of all time. But not only the image was there, the most important thing in our mind was the fact that the music has to stand up years from now. It has to stand up even after they forgot what we did on stage.'

ALICE COOPER INDUCTED INTO WHITE CASTLE HALL OF FAME

ALICE COOPER INDUCTED INTO WHITE CASTLE HALL OF FAME

New York, NY (July 8, 2014)- Dreams can come true, as rock icon Alice Cooper can attest, following his induction into the White Castle Cravers Hall of Fame at White Castle headquarters in Columbus, Ohio on July 7th, 2014. As a child of Detroit, Alice learned to love White Castle's iconic sliders at an early age, and has never lost his taste for them over the years.   He also learned to love rock and roll, and pursue his career in a band, and achieved induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2011.

Little did he know that another Hall of Fame, also in Ohio, was in his destiny.
Following a tour of White Castle headquarters led by Bill, Marci and Lisa Ingram (the company is a fourth-generation family-owned business), company VP Jamie Richardson conducted a brief  chat with Alice in a room full of White Castle employees, including a band that performed some of Alice's songs (he actually JOINED them for "No More Mr Nice Guy," much to their surprise), and then Alice was presented with a plaque commemorating his induction into their White Castle Cravers Hall of Fame.

Said Alice, "a lot of my fellow rockers are going to be envious of this honor."  Asked how it compared to being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Alice responded "there's no comparison," carefully ducking the question.

The stop at White Castle headquarters took place on a day off during Alice's summer tour as Very Special Guests to Motley Crue on their "All Bad Things Must Come to An End" tour, which plays the Schottenstein Center in Columbus tonight as part of the 72 show run.  The summer tour continues through August 31, and then resumes in autumn, October 10 through November 22.

Alice has often talked about his love of White Castle in interviews and on his syndicated "Nights With Alice Cooper" radio program, and served White Castle at the party following the premiere of the "Super Duper Alice Cooper" documentary at the Tribeca Film Festival in April in New York City.  The documentary, produced by Banger Films (same team that produced the award-winning Iron Maiden and Rush documentaries), has recently been released in both DVD and Blu-Ray by Eagle Rock Entertainment.

CHUCK GARRIC (ALICE COOPER/BEASTO BLANCO) GUESTS ON DECIBEL GEEK PODCAST

CONVERSATION WITH CHUCK GARRIC - EP139


Alice Cooper bassist and Beasto Blanco frontman Chuck Garric is the guest for this week's episode of the Decibel Geek poodcast (Conversation with Chuck Garric - Ep139)

In this discussion, Chuck goes back to his Lake Tahoe, CA roots to describe his musical upbringing, the awesomeness of Ted Nugent, his thoughts on American vs. European audiences, and the likelihood of Alice breaking the drought of DaDa songs in the setlist among other things.

Also discussed is Chuck's band, Beasto Blanco which recently released 'Live Fast Die Loud.' In this conversation, Garric shares his passion for this band, his thoughts on the material, and plans for the next release by the band.

Alice Cooper is currently on tour in Europe and this discussion was recorded the day before he left the United States to play some very big festival shows including Sweden Rock. In this conversation, Chuck gives us a view behind the scenes into what it takes to create the chemistry that Alice's band displays on stages around the world. He also shares in his excitement for the upcoming Alice Cooper/Motley Crue double-bill that will take place soon.
