Alice Cooper Guitarist Nita Strauss Silencing Doubters

. (Classic Rock) Nita Strauss says being the best guitarist she can be has helped her win over the doubters. Strauss is part of Alice Cooper's touring band and she's also played with The Iron Maidens, Jermaine Jackson and LA Kiss. The 28-year-old has worked as a musician since her teens and says life as a female guitarist isn't always easy.

But proving herself as a more than capable player has helped her win over any sceptics. She tells MetalLife: "It's nice to not be a teenager on the road any more. It's hard being a female on the road, it's even harder being a young female on the road. But I've been really lucky, people have always treated me with a lot of respect.

"The only thing you can do is go out there and make sure your playing leaves no doubt. People are always going to talk but if your playing makes them doubt you then you're never going to get out there. Just make sure you get out there, take no prisoners and leave no doubt." More including a stream of the full interview here.
