Ryan Roxie Picks the 10 Best Alice Cooper Songs

With all the tour news this week, I thought I’d share this list that I included in an interview with Fraser Lewry of Classic Rock Magazine from a few months back. Check my tour page for more details on my solo tour and upcoming tour with Alice Cooper.

Schools Out

When the bell rings and every hand in the audience goes up, that is rock'n'roll bliss! I have had the honour for many years to start out this Classic Teenage Youth Anthem (far beyond our teenage years)... and somehow Glen Buxton channels through me every time I play that riff.

Between High School And Old School

How could I not include a song that I was able to write with the boss at the top of the list? Always identified with the title of this one, 'cause after all, aren't we all just a little bit stuck in between? From The Eyes of Alice Cooper.

Serious

From the album From The Inside, a less-than-three-minute rollercoaster ride of guitar riffs and layered harmonies. A challenge and a joy to play live.

Only Women Bleed

I get to play my double-neck guitar on this one... enough said!

Clones (We're All)

From the Flush the Fashion album, this song shows off Alice's 'new-wave' avant-garde side... a side that's worth showing.

No More Mr. Nice Guy

Another one of those you know instantly from hearing the opening riff. Thank you classic rock radio for continuing to play this song. That keeps us touring and keeps the original band's royalty checks rolling in!

Halo Of Flies

AC's tribute to all the old James Bond films. Musically, it showcases the entire band... dare I even say the words 'prog rock'?

Woman of Mass Distraction

Another track I was able to co-write with Coop on the Dirty Diamonds album. Nita Strauss gets to 'hurricane' all over the stage and I get to go wild on my wah-wah pedal... everyone's happy.

Poison

What would this list, or any other classic rock list be without this song on it? Can't we all agree that, just like Facebook, it's a necessary evil?

Long Way To Go

Another classic off the Love it to Death album. One of those riff rock songs that makes for near train wrecks certain nights and musical nirvana moments on others, when we nail it.... once again proving that 'We still got a long way to go'!

Marshall Amp Factory Tour

When it comes to household names regarding Guitar Amps, it's a pretty short list...and when you are thinking Rock Guitar Amps....there's pretty much just ONE that slips off the tongue....that's right, it's " M A R S H A L L ".  This past week I was invited on a tour of the Marshall Guitar Amp by Artist Liaison Manager Joel Manan. I was able to take a peek behind the magic curtain and see how these amps that have shaped the sound of rock n' roll for generations are actually put together.  Enjoy the Video and remember, 'THIS Blog goes to Eleven' ;) -77

We had some fun during the UK leg of the Imagine Your Reality Tour

BANDIT ROCK AWARDS 2019 - extended

What a whirlwind week it was....Thank you to Robby Miller for flying all the way from the USA to play guitar and be a part of these shows and events as well as HUGE thanks to our 'home-grown' rhythm section of Kristoffer Folin (Drums) and Peter Kjellin (Bass).

The week started off with bang at the Bandit Radio studios. a special on-air performance of not 1, but 2 Roxie songs 'Me Generation' and 'To Live & Die in L.A.' were recorded for YOUR listening (and viewing) pleasure.

 

Then we hit the ground running on Friday starting off rehearsing at Purple Skull Studios (the same studio that a majority of 'Imagine Your Reality' was recorded and produced by Kristoffer)....then not 1, but 2 (again) live shows....the first being an acoustic performance at my old friend's Bjorn's Oyster Baren restaurant that specializes in Champagne, Oysters, and of course David Bowie....in fact, one of the requirements is that Bjorn comes up and jams a Bowie song at least ONCE per evening....well, low and behold THIS DID HAPPEN ;) 

After the Oyster Bar we headed to our 2nd show of the evening, one of Stockholm's best known rock clubs 'Harry B. James'.  There we ran through the 'mini-set' just to make sure there wouldn't be any major train wrecks the following night....happy to say, mission accomplished!

Show day at the Bandit Rock Awards!…..One of the only true 'rock radio stations' Sweden has to offer is Bandit Radio. They play a good mix of current rock as well as some of the classics. They have been very supportive of the solo album , so when I was asked to be a part of their yearly awards it was a no-brainer.

We joined Swedish Sleeze-rockers Crash Diet, hard-core band Millenicone, and rock-n-roll legends Backyard Babies for rock sets in-between  award announcements…Winners included swedish rockers Ghost as well as song of the year going to Hardcore Superstar….. after the awards Denmark’s D.A.D. came on for a full set…VERY inspiring guitar-driven rock!   Check out the basses he uses in the band….  Both Dregen (guitarist for the Backyard Babies) and I couldn’t over just how good the guitar tone was of D.A.D.’s guitarist.

All in all, a night to remember!…

Here’s a shot with the Lead Singer Pelle Almqvist of the Swedish band ‘ The Hives ’.
