We’ve already whetted your ghoulish whistle for “Welcome 2 My Nightmare,” Alice Cooper’s long-awaited, Bob Ezrin-produced sequel to his classic “Welcome To My Nightmare” breakthrough from the ’70s. But thanks to his syndicated radio show, “Nights With Alice Cooper,” airing tonight, fans won’t have to wait until the Sept. 13 release date to check out new tracks.
Amid the five-hour program’s regular features — like “Cooper’s Closet Classics,” “Freaky Facts” and “The Day In Rock,” the spry spookster will be spinning new dirges such as “Runaway Train,” “I Gotta Get Outta Here,” and kickoff single “I’ll Bite Your Face Off.” And offering commentary on each and every one.
It may come as a shock to some fans that Cooper has his very own radio show in which to, ahem, exorcise his demons. But “Nights With Alice Cooper” has been beaming out into the netherworld since Jan. 26, 2004, believe it or not, and is now heard on over 125 affiliate stations (check www.nightswithalicecooper.com for further info).
The Coop also uses the platform to interview fellow rockers, like Dio, Ozzy, AC/DC, Jeff Beck and Peter Frampton. And in addition to his current “Welcome” tour, he has a few other branding irons in the fire, including a Superbowl commercial, a fashion campaign for John Varvatos, and an acting role in Tim Burton’s upcoming reboot of the old Barnabas Collins vampire soap opera “Dark Shadows.”
Oh yes. He’s baaaaaack!
