Forthcoming Official Documentary “Super Duper Alice Cooper” Premiering at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival
Watch The Official Trailer Here: http://youtu.be/65LiL6R9L3I
Banger Films, in association with Eagle Rock Entertainment, presents ALICE COOPER in Super Duper Alice Cooper, the brand new official ALICE COOPER documentary distributed by SpectiCast (As The Palaces Burn, Aerosmith: Rock for the Rising Sun, Morrissey 25: Live).
Super Duper Alice Cooper will premiere at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival and will hit theaters nationwide beginning May 30, 2014. The film is the first ever ‘doc opera’ – a dizzying blend of documentary archive footage, animation and rock opera that will cement forever the legend of ALICE COOPER.
In order to make Super Duper Alice Cooper as interactive for his devoted fans as he possibly can, ALICE COOPER is putting together a special pre-recorded “Keep Calm & Go Ask Alice” Q&A that will run following each theatrical screening. In order for Alice to give some wild answers, he’ll require some burning questions from fans, so he’s inviting YOU to ask him anything now via www.SuperDuperAliceCooper.com (click the “Keep Calm & Go Ask Alice” graphic). Once the submission period is closed, Alice will personally handpick select questions and answer them via video, serving as the aforementioned Q&A. So, do you want your question to be answered in the pre-recorded ALICE COOPER Q&A running after each and every screening in the U.S.? Of course you do! Submit your questions now via www.SuperDuperAliceCooper.com.
Super Duper Alice Cooper is the twisted tale of a teenage Dr. Jekyll whose rock n’ roll Mr. Hyde almost kills him. It is the story of Vincent Furnier, a preacher’s son who struck fear into the hearts of parents as ALICE COOPER, the ultimate rock star of the bizarre. From the advent of Alice as front man for a group of Phoenix freaks in the 60’s to the hazy decadence of celebrity in the 70s to his triumphant comeback as 80s glam metal godfather, we will watch as Alice and Vincent battle for each other’s’ souls. Alice’s story is told not only by the man himself, but through exclusive interviews with members of the original ALICE COOPER band, Elton John, Iggy Pop, John Lydon, and Dee Snider.
Super Duper Alice Cooper is the creation of Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn at Banger Films, producers of Iron Maiden: Flight 666 (2009 SXSW Audience Choice Winner) and Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage (2010 Grammy-nominated and Tribeca Audience Choice Winner), and much-lauded filmmaker Reginald Harkema, winner of the TIFF Special Jury Prize for his film Monkey Warfare.

GUITAR PLAYER MAGAZINE PRESENTS LITA FORD WITH THE “CERTIFIED LEGEND AWARD”
** A HUGE SURPRISE SPECIAL GUEST SET – NOT TO MISS !**
HOLLYWOOD, CA (February 17, 2014) – 2ND ANNUAL ROCK AGAINST MS returns to the Whisky A Go-Go in Hollywood with yet another amazing All-Star line up. The 2nd Annual has the Rock Stars returning in support of long time friend and publicist, Nancy B. Sayle. This rock-fueled concert is to help raise awareness and funding for Sayle and her new foundation benefiting those living with MS.
Guitar Player Magazine is in the house to present Lita Ford their top award - Inspired by Chet Atkins’ phrase “Certified Guitar Player”—and typically bestowed at NAMM during Muriel Anderson’s All-Star Guitar Night—this award debuted in 2003 with Les Paul as the first recipient. Since then, GP has honored Duane Eddy, Nokie Edwards, Dick Dale, Larry Carlton, Tommy Emmanuel, Mike Stern, Lee Ritenour, Robben Ford, Joe Perry, and others. “Lita Ford slugged it out with the boys club in an era where female musicians who liked to rock hard had very few heroes,” says GUITAR PLAYER Editor in Chief Michael Molenda. “But Lita was there, and man, did she cut a heroic figure. She was tough. She was smart. She could write a good song. And she could shred. Stinging bends. Fierce vibrato. A great sense of melody and phrasing. Since the Runaways in the late 1970s, and throughout her solo career, Lita has been a beacon of cool, and an inspiration for girls AND boys who want to express themselves through the guitar. She is the definition of a Certified Legend.”
In its finishing stages, the ROCK AGAINST MS FOUNDATION will provide services from a three (3) grant resource system, which will provide daily care, quality of life needs and emergency funding, while assisting people with multiple sclerosis (MS) to live independent and full lives. Additionally, a brick and mortar facility we will call THE ROCK HOUSE is in the planning stages, and will provide free of charge, multiple programs and opportunities designed to heal the mind, body and spirit of all those whose lives have been affected by MS.

About Multiple Sclerosis
- Every hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with MS, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system.
- MS interrupts the flow of information from the brain to the body and stops people from moving.
- Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The advancement, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS.
- Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with more than twice as many women as men being diagnosed with the disease.
- MS affects more than 400,000 people in the U.S. and 2.1 million worldwide.

American heavy metal legends Lizzy Borden celebrated 30 years of iconic headbanging with their Appointment with Death lineup (first show in five years) at the NAMM after show Epiphone party on Friday, January 24th at the Tiki Bar in Costa Mesa. Opening bands included hard rock/groove metal band Dive Bomber (lead singer, Nomad, was covered in colorful body art), and hard rock/heavymetal band Archer who played a setlist mnemonic of Slayer, Black Sabbath, Zakk Wylde. Singer Dylan Rose, who has the looks, sexiness, and charisma of Sebastian Bach in his Skid Row days, but harder, brought high energy and passion with his voice, guitar riffs, and heavy headbanging. Other opening bands included Lord Marshall, Doctors of the Earth, …and more. If you’ve never been to a Lizzy Borden show, they are not one to miss, and chances are they’ll become one of your top favorite Rock n roll bands to see live. The energy on stage is out of this world, almost immortal, masks that amaze, and it feels as if Borden is telling a story to each of his children, creating allusions, demanding acceptance with all his talented glory, keeping a close eye on each and every one, and you can’t look away, it’s too good. Nearing the end of the toxic, but orgasmic night, Lizzy treated with dessert, warning the crowd, “There will be blood tonight.” Fiends, brave and willing, pushed their way to stage for the chance to be swiped with globs of red slop as the band played their classic track from their Deal with the Devil album, “There Will Be Blood Tonight.” I personally found the blood to taste sweet. Those who survived their first Lizzy Borden Show were left feeling full and gratified. The songlist included many classics from every Lizzy Borden record to date, including songs the band has never performed live. At one point I turned around from the front of stage, and every single head in the room was banging in delight. Lizzy Borden put on one hell of a show.
The Epiphone party was one bloody mess of a good time. In conjunction with Rock N Roll Industries Magazine.
