ROLLINGSTONE.COM - ALICE COOPER TALKS VAMPIRES TOUR

rollignstoneSOURCE:  ROLLINGSTONE.COM

Hollywood Vampires, the supergroup whose core members are Alice CooperJohnny Depp and Joe Perry, will set out on their first comprehensive North American tour this summer. Beginning with a gig in Verona, New York in late May, the band will visit the northern part of the U.S. and into Canada before wrapping in Paso Robles, California in late July. Other than an appearance at the Grammys in February, the band’s only North American gigs have been club shows in Hollywood.

The musicians supporting the core for the trek include drummer Matt Sorum (the Cult, Guns N’ Roses), guitarist Tommy Henriksen (Alice Cooper’s band) and pianist, percussionist and guitarist Bruce Witkin (Johnny Depp’s group the Kids). Since Duff McKagan, who had played bass at all of the band’s previous gigs, has reunited with Guns N’ Roses and will be touring with them this summer, the Vampires are welcoming Stone Temple Pilots’ Robert DeLeo to the fold to handle four-string duties.

Alice Cooper Interviews Anne Rice on Religion, Vampires, Tom Cruise & Pot

Alice Cooper is a longtime fan of novelist and fellow Christian Anne Rice, whose Christ of Lord: Out of Egypt has been turned into The Young Messiah, a movie that opened this week. When the filmmakers arranged for a screening of the film for Cooper and wife Sheryl, they decided it would be fun to let the rocker interview the writer.

Read Cooper’s interview with the Vampire author below.

Alice Cooper: Was Memnoch the Devil written before or after your conversion to Catholicism? Am I correct in assuming what I read about your conversion?
Anne Riche: Memnoch was written before I returned to the Roman Catholic Church. I think the novel reflects a Catholic upbringing, a Catholic obsession with questions of meaning, a need to explore theologies and question them stridently. I remember including every major question I had, and when Lestat rejected the entire Christian system, as it was presented to him, his decision reflected my attitude. I don’t know what you read about my conversion. I can tell you that I returned to the church of my childhood in December of 1998. I gave up pondering theological absurdities and doctrines, and decided to leave it all to a higher power. I sought to go back to the fold, to the church I knew best, to the Eucharist, and I truly believed that doctrine and theology simply did not matter. What mattered was faith in God and loving God. Twelve years later I came to believe I was mistaken. Or that my approach did not work any longer for me. I left all organized religion in 2010.
