Alice Cooper Reunion?
Rock N Roll Universe reports: In an exclusive interview conducted by Rock N Roll Universe, original Alice Cooper dummer Neal Smith states that the doors are always open for a reunion of the original Alice Cooper Group. When asked about the prospects of a reunion, Smith has the following to say:

RNRU : How realistic is it for fans to hope for any kind of reunion?

NS : All I can say is there's always a chance that something can happen. Realistically or not, nobody's ever going to know. Let's put it this way, as long as I'm alive, I will always be one of the people trying to negotiate something that maybe could make that happen. Whether it's putting the right elements together, or helping the right elements or if the elements were put together that I would be there. Dennis and I have always offered to talk about a reunion since the band broke up. I told Alice in '75, if you ever need my help call me, and in 1985 he came up to Connecticut and he did all the pre-production work for the 'Constrictor' album at my studio at my home with Dennis and I and Kane Roberts, who played guitar on it. Our doors are and have always been open.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Green Eyed Soul
Harper PR reports: Grammy Award-winning Nashville-based singer/songwriter Lari White, best known for her chart-topping string of 90's country hits, makes a sharp turn with the July 26, 2005 release of GREEN EYED SOUL, a truly amazing collection of soulful songs, including the first single, the gospel-blues tune "Right Here, Right Now" and the funky "Let's Keep It Together." GREEN EYED SOUL marks the debut release from her Sony/RED distributed record label Skinny WhiteGirl.

Released to rave UK reviews in June, 2004, the album reflects Lari's lifelong R&B and gospel influences. She set forth in the studio to reach inside herself and what tumbled out was a sweet blend of soul, Southern Americana and jazz that she calls GREEN EYED SOUL. Here, she blends classic soul and R&B sensibilities with modern technology to tackle subjects such as love and the loss of innocence, conjuring up heady images of languorous, sultry Southern nights. 

With a July 26, 2005 release date, Lari is planning a flurry of stateside shows: [see full story for dates]- Click Here for the Full Story
