Hello! I been busy. Get thee to a newsagent. They still exist, right?
I interviewed Alice Cooper for almost three hours on his tourbus as we drove across Minnesota for this piece in the latest issue of MOJO. He was an absolute mensch, and told such amazing stories. Don’t get too close to him when he’s carrying his throwing knives, however. And I have a second Alice piece in the pipeline, which I’ll no doubt bore you about when it reaches the presses.
And I interviewed Vernon Reid and Corey Glover of Living Colour for a six-page career retrospective in the second issue of Planet Rock magazine, currently on sale with a buff gold cover with Freddie Mercury peeking out of it. They were a dream to interview, especially on their sublime second album Time’s Up – their new one, Shade, is a right cracker also.
And I reviewed The Horrors’ recent gig at Omeara for the Guardian, showcasing their excellent, forthcoming new album V. The comments have closed on this I’m afraid, so you’ve lost your opportunity to tell me what you thought of the gig even though you weren’t there.
