David Ellefson (MEGADETH) conducted an interview with legendary rocker Alice Cooper backstage at the fifth annual Revolver Golden Gods awards on May 2 at Club Nokia in downtown Los Angeles, California. You can now watch the chat below.
In what is obviously a “dream” pairing, or some might say a “nightmare,” Cooper and Marilyn Manson will be teaming up for the “Masters Of Madness” tour June 1 through June 28. Following recent pairings of Alice with Rob Zombie and then Rob Zombie with Manson, this combination of Alice Cooper and Marilyn Manson has been long-awaited by fans of both artists.
Alice Cooper is a true rock icon, having pioneered the use of theatrics and shocking images onstage in concerts from the earliest days of the original band of the same name. Since going solo, he has continued to produce elaborate stage shows providing fans with both shock and rock of the highest caliber. Inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2011, Alice has toured and recorded continuously, with his most recent album being “Welcome 2 My Nightmare” through UMe. Recorded with longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin, who produced the original ground breaking, multi-platinum “Welcome To My Nightmare” album in 1975, the album picks up right where they left off, with Alice trapped in his own warped mind.
Currently, Alice‘s touring band features the three-guitar attack of Orianthi, Tommy Henriksen and Ryan Roxie, backed by bassist Chuck Garric and drummer Glen Sobel.
