Alice Goes Stupid

Alice Cooper is now in the final mixing stages for his new LP, the follow-up to the highly successful 'Trash'. The LP is likely to be called 'Hey Stoopid' and is said to rock harder than his last album.

The LP is being produced by Peter Collins (Queensryche, Gary Moore) with basic recording having been done at Bearsville Studios in Upstate New York, with the remaining work taking place at studios in Los Angeles - the same travel routine as was followed for 'Trash'.

A number of guest musicians are featured on the project, but thus far their names are being kept under wraps, although Slash's name has been mentioned, alongside fellow guitarist Vinnie Moore. And among those people who collaborated with AC on material for the record are: Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx and guitarist Mick Mars (both of whom also appear on the record), Desmond Child (with whom Alice worked on the 'Trash' project), Dick Wagner (a member of the Alice Cooper band during the halcyon days of the early-to-mid-'70's), Jack Ponti (top songwriter/producer from New York) and Jim Vallance (Canadian songwriting partner of Bryan Adams).

The album should be out through Epic in late June, preceded by a single. In the meantime, Alice has a cameo role in the horror movie 'Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare'.
