Cooper Gets Boxed

Alice Cooper will have a box set released next February by Rhino Records. It will span his entire career.

Titled "The Life And Crimes Of Alice Cooper", it will feature four CD's that will include material that dates back as far as 1967. There will be songs drawn from Cooper's early work with obscure bands The Spiders and The Nazz, as well as rehearsal tapes from the 70's, B-sides of singles, unreleased material and, apparently, a few surprises.

There will also be an 80-page colour booklet. A number of top stars have contributed to an upcoming Alice tribute album, which will be released later this year on an as yet undisclosed label. These include Def Leppard duo Joe Elliot and Phil Collen, the Megadeth pair Dave Mustaine and Marty Friedman, Glenn Hughes and Mr Big guitarist Paul Gilbert
