Uh, dudes…this Thursday’s show is gonna be major, in more ways than one. Paul Major from Endless Boogie will be co-DJ’ing with me AND I’ll be talking to the one and only Alice Cooper about his nomination to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, working with the original Alice Cooper group again (as well as producer Bob Ezrin) and being dosed by Blue Cheer!
As a long-time Alice-fan since 7th grade, I’ve always been very proud to work on his syndicated radio show, Nights With Alice Cooper. So I’m super-psyched to have him on Beyond Beyond is Beyond on East Village Radio, on Thursday, September 30th!
The original Alice Cooper group is in good company with the rest of the nominees to the Rock Hall this year. It should be noted that Alice has been sampled by the Beastie Boys, written with Bon Jovi, Donovan duets with Alice on ‘Billion Dollar Babies’, and one of Alice’s favorite songwriters ever is Laura Nyro! Check out the list of nominees:
2011 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees:
Alice Cooper, Beastie Boys, Bon Jovi, Chic, Neil Diamond, Donovan, Dr. John, J. Geils Band, LL Cool J, Darlene Love, Laura Nyro, Donna Summer, Joe Tex, Tom Waits, Chuck Willis
AND, like I done said before, Endless Boogie singer/guitarist, Paul Major (aka Top Dollar) will be spinnin’ jams alongside me all show long! From what I hear, Paul’s got some killer records and Endless Boogie’s new Full House Head album is one of my current favorite albums!
So be sure to hear it all on Beyond Beyond is Beyond on East Village Radio on Thursday, noon eastern! I promise sweetniss!

Thought this was interesting (in the new Rolling Stone ‘From the Vaults May 8, 1975′)
It’s nice to get an occasional pat on the back for the love that you put into your work…you know? And in the world of commercial radio, it’s hard to know what’s good and bad and what’s right and wrong anymore…and I would venture to say that anyone in radio that thinks they know, simply don’t.
As the head writer and associate producer for our very small Nights With Alice Cooper production team, we are constantly doing a balancing act between playing to formula and being innovative. So it was nice to see NWAC (among other great terrestrial, satellite and internet programs) recognized in the most recent Elmore Magazine.
Reversing a long decline, a new flowering of soulful and creative rock programming has gained momentum on the radio. It is heard on commercial and public/community terrestrial stations, via satellite and on the Internet.
Inventive, imaginative, hip music programming is cropping up or becoming established on stations and websites, allowing listeners once starved for variety and ‘deep catalogue’ to hear everything from Alice Cooper’s favorite 1960s-era garage-rock songs to funky, forgotten post-war blues gems from Cincinnati’s King Records.”

I just have to post this. ‘Twas a good day!
What Alice Cooper song did Donovan also sing on? (Yes, Donovan’s on the brain this week!)
How cute is this little girl?! Thanks to Nights With Alice Cooper forum member, RubberPants, for this one. So this was done 11 years ago… meaning this girl is now 15?!
Check out the new AC/DC tune. It sounds like something that would fit in on a classic AC/DC album like Back In Black, For Those About To Rock, or Flick of the Switch!
A-maze-ing, no? Alice Cooper said that he was flattered when he heard that in a recent interview, Brian Johnson was complimented by the interviewer on the new album, and Brian said, “Yeah, but have you heard Alice Cooper’s new album?!” Nice. You likey?
Well I’ve been reading that Rothbury is the next Bonnaroo, and from what I’ve seen it does look like an amazingly well thought out music festival. And the festie is super-green. I dig that. I may have to take my ass out there next year, although it may be tough if ‘The Phish’ is touring again by then!
First and foremost, check out my Detroit Cobras review on Blog Critics…and leave some comments there, so it looks like I have some readers!
So I just saw this recent video of Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst on the Tom Green show and it is VERY interesting, to say the least. Homeboy is Rip Van Winkling!
After sort of trashing his hometown of Detroit in a recent Rolling Stone article, Jack White pens a poem for the Motor City. The only ‘trashing’ he did was saying that Detroit’s music scene was suffocating him.
You gotta read the comments section from this Stereogum Phish reunion post! Hilarious.
John Oates’ Moustache cartoon?
I’m looking forward to new Kings of Leon.
Thought you knew the Scorps from ‘Hurricane’ days? Well check this video from 1972!
And whoa! Look at the emaciated Alice Cooper in 1981. This is during his alcoholic relapse period.
Deaner’s got a new fishing show. You can view episodes at the Brownie Troop website.
Anyone heard Fleet Foxes yet? It sounds like there album’s a hands-down winner.
And what do you think of your iPod’s shuffle mode? Love it, hate it?
This video of Chromeo on Jimmy Kimmel is pretty amazing. I had not heard them before I saw this.
What else is up?
I kept wanting to post something today, and I just kept becoming more and more lethargic. It must be my feelings of insecurity, constant reminders of mortality, and lack of groceries that is strangling my keyboard. No word yet from my specialist. Here’s a bunch of crappy links that you won’t even give two shits about, but whatever…dig it, I guess…
HEY! I just cheered up…because the ever-so-clever Ace Cowboy has made his triumphant return to blogdom today with the Rebirth of Slack, after being on hiatus for a year. Be sure to visit him now and again, if you like to laugh and/or cringe.
Nights With Alice Cooper name-drops our buddies at Hidden Track in the show’s piece about Bryan Scary and the Shredding Tears. I wonder who was responsible for that?!
Check out my Blog Critics articles if you haven’t already, um-kay?
Vote for Bryan Scary and the Shredding Tears at Deli Magazine
Gotta love Phish from ’87!
Specials reunion? Fuck yeah!
Anything eels? Yes, I said eels. And you know what…I feel a lot less like a lethargio now! Now back to work.
