Alice takes out the Trash

Alice Cooper's new record, entitled 'Trash', will be released by Epic records on July 3. Most of the album was written in the second half of last year by Cooper and Desmond Child (who also produced the record), but other co-writers included Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora and Joan Jett. There are also guest appearances on the album from, amongst others, Kip Winger, Kane Roberts, Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora, Steve Tyler, Joe Perry, Joey Kramer, Tom Hamilton, Steve Lukather and 'hot new guitarist' Guy Mann-Dude.

Alice will probably embark on a world tour later in the year to support the album release, but will have to put a new group together before he tours as many of his former backing musicians are now committed to other bands such as Winger and House Of Lords.

In the interim, Alice will be a presenter at the international Rock Awards, which will be held in New York City on May 31.
