Hanging with the Alice Cooper Band Before Their Jones Beach Show

By SethM

222Last week, FlashWounds got to cover the Alice Cooper/Motley Crue show at Jones Beach and I had the pleasure of catching up with some of the Alice Cooper Band members individually. Chuck Garric was doing a waterside photo shoot for Ashdown Engineering, whose Bass amps he plays exclusively. Not only is Chuck part of the Alice Cooper Band, but he’s also got his own kickass group, Beasto Blanco. Beasto Blanco released Live Fast Die Loud last year and the album features Chuck on vocals and guitar; LFDL is great and you can order it ~ as well as some other cool Beasto Blanco merchandise ~ here

I also spent some time with Long Island’s own Beasto Blanco producer and Alice Cooper guitarist Tommy Henriksen, whose next solo album, Tommy Tommy Tommy, should be out any day now ~ and we were lucky enough to be joined by the newest member of the Alice Cooper Band, guitarist Nita Strauss (check out our article on her  shred  lesson videos).

All the socializing aside, and even though I’ve seen Alice numerous times (check out coverage of one show for FW here), how could I not stay to take in the always theatrical performance of the originator of shock rock and shoot a few photos for you?
