ALICE COOPER Guitarist RYAN ROXIE To Release 'Imagine Your Reality' Solo Album In May

Ryan Roxie will release his new solo album, "Imagine Your Reality" on May 25 via www.bellyacherecords.com for LP pre-order. Pre-order CD at amazon.com The CD will also be available via Cargo Records UK.
 
The vocalist, guitarist and songwriter, who is best known as Alice Cooper's longtime lead guitarist and collaborator, has also worked with Slash, Gilby Clarke and others. Roxie will be touring in US in July before he starts Cooper's tour Aug 3 in Wisconsin.
 
"Imagine Your Reality" is Ryan's first official solo release and sees him joined by other noteworthy musicians, including a collaboration with CHEAP TRICK's Robin Zander on the track "California Man".
 
Says Roxie: "CHEAP TRICK were a major influence in my musical upbringing. Both Robin Zander and Rick Nielsen have joined us onstage at Alice Cooper shows in the past and have always been the most quintessential rock stars. In my opinion, Robin Zander's voice is the definition of rock 'n' roll, so having him guest vocal on 'California Man' definitely ticks a box off my 'greatest moments in rock 'n roll' list."
 
"Imagine Your Reality" continues Roxie's legacy of creating infectiously melodic songs and straight-ahead, no-nonsense rock riffs, and this time with more guitar than ever before. Ten tracks, all underlined by ten gleaming guitar solos. From the punk rock undertones of "Never Mind Me" to the un-sugarcoated tale of life in "La La Land (To Live And Die In LA)" to the superb BEATLES-y/OASIS nod "Look Me In The Eye" — it's an uplifting big rock soundd. Zander transforms "California Man" into the ultimate vintage-vibed, top-down, drive-in-the-sunshine rock 'n' roll anthem.
 
Ryan says: "With this album, I think we kept the spirit and power of the 3.5-minute rock song intact as well as keeping the dream of guitar-driven music alive and well. I can't wait for people to experience my reality."
 
The LP is currently available at www.bellyacherecords.com for pre-order and set to be released on May 25, 2018. Fans can order the LP's individually or in bundle packs with an exclusive T-Shirt and Guitar Pick pack.

Quotes from the interview: "My Beatles would be Cheap Trick." "I'm like a Rock N' Roll vampire. I'm feeding off the energy of the people that come see us."

Our second interview is with UFO guitarist VINNIE MOORE - he talks about the band, working with Alice Cooper, his new solo album 'Aerial Visions' and much more.

On making an instrumental album: "With no vocals, you need a lot of contrast between the songs."

On the guitar sound expected from him in Alice Cooper: "There wasn't a whole lot of guideline. I don't think they would want anyone to come in and play like somebody from 1970. Something had to be current or there's no point in doing it."

On Alice Cooper: "One of the hopes I had when I first joined his band was that someday we could write together."
