Alice Cooper’s Nita Strauss on The MetalSucks Podcast #495
Nita Strauss is back on the show! We are here to celebrate her second solo album The Call of the Void coming out this Friday, July 7 and as such, we discuss the patience she had to show prior to getting the album released, how the pieces came together to get David Draiman of Disturbed to guest on the album, returning to the road with her solo project last year supporting Black Label Society, and some of the new challenges on road life. She also touched upon having to challenge herself constantly in the ever-changing music industry, receiving a Super Bowl ring when the LA Rams became champions, and why the universe needs to remake the classic Walter Hill film “Crossroads” with Nita replacing Steve Vai.
Petar and Sylvia discuss Corey Taylor’s comments on possibly hanging it up in five years with touring Slipknot, Shavo Odadjian once again commenting on the musical hiatus of SOAD, a new study suggesting listening to metal doesn’t help with your college GPA, the tragic passing of Ryan Siew of Polaris, and coming together to help Year of The Knife after a horrible van crash while touring.
