Guitarist Ryan Roxie has rejoined Alice Cooper‘s band for the legendary rocker’s upcoming tour.
“I can’t even begin to express how excited I am to have the opportunity to be a part of this year’s touring lineup,” Ryan said. “To be able to contribute musically with Alice and the band, perform for all you faithful Cooper fans, and have the chance to play guitar on stage next to one of rock music’s coolest icons… Well, let’s just say I definitely plan to ‘enjoy the ride’… and yes, just like all good sports-related interview-ending quotes, I also plan on ‘taking it one show at a time’ and giving it ‘110%.”
He added, “I might seem calm and low key on the outside, but inside I’m about as excited and honored to do this as I’ve ever been in my career…
“Let’s jump on that tour bus so we can come out and play for you all [as soon as possible]… Looking forward to seeing all your familiar faces and meeting new ones as well.”
Roxie was previously a member of Alice Cooper‘s band from 1996 to 2006. More recently, he was involved with the groups CASABLANCA and ROXIE 77.
Guitar legend Steve Hunter announced his decision to leave Cooper‘s band last month.
