Quotes from the interview:
Tommy Henriksen -- The next new Alice Cooper record (time 4.39): "Alice is talking about records all the time. I know that there is a process right now going on - putting a new Alice Cooper record together, so we'll see what happens."
Nita Strauss - solo album recording process (Time 5.05): "It's going really really well. The first track is going to be released January 20th via Steve Vai's label Favored Nations. It's a compilation called 'She Rocks' - it's myself, Jennifer Batten, Orianthi and a bunch of other female guitar players showcasing the female side of shred."
Tommy Henriksen - the upcoming 'Alice Cooper band' album (without Alice) - time 6.05: "It's actually finished. We're just sitting on it. We recorded it in all the hotel rooms."
Glen Sobel - playing with Mötley Crüe (time 12.10): "It's one thing to know the songs... I came up listening to Mötley Crüe. I saw the Dr. Feelgood tour back when I was a kid, but to suddenly have to play the show - that's a different story. So, I make the 'cheat sheets.'
