News : Alice Cooper Reunites With Former Bandmates
Alice Cooper was the guest of honor at the Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp in Las Vegas last week.
After performing with various groups of campers and then taking part in one of the most entertaining Q&A's Noisecreep has ever witnessed (as Cooper is an exceptional storyteller), then everyone in the room got a huge surprise.
Cooper took over the small stage with his former lead guitarist Kane Roberts, who was then joined by Kip Winger on bass and Teddy 'Zig Zag' Andreadis on keyboards. It was a reunion of sorts for these guys that have all played with Cooper over the shock rock icon's storied career. Roberts became a guitar hero through his work with Cooper on his Constrictor (1986) and Raise Your Fist and Yell (1987) albums. Winger also played on both of those efforts, before leaving the band and starting hair metal era heroes Winger.
Cooper, Roberts and Winger were also joined onstage by another gifted musician.
John 5, a counselor at the camp last week, joined in on lead guitar as the band kicked it off with a blistering version of the Cooper classic 1973 single, "No More Mr. Nice Guy." The famed shredder played on Cooper's 2012 Welcome 2 My Nightmare album, lending a solo on the track "Disco Bloodbath Boogie Fever."
