Alice Cooper Announces New Guitarist

When Alice Cooper hits the stage this summer on Motley Crue's farewell tour, the legendary shock rocker will have a new guitarist joining him.

Cooper has named Nita Strauss as his new guitarist following the departure of Orianthi Panagaris, who has been playing of late with Richie Sambora.

Strauss is known for playing with The Iron Maidens (a world renowned all-female Iron Maiden tribute band) and Femme Fatale, and has served as the 'house guitarist' for Arena Football League team LA KISS. Strauss has performed as part of Dreaming Dead, Lacey Conner's HALO, and The Dreaming. She was recently ranked #1 on Guitar World's '10 Female Guitar Players You Should Know' list.

Cooper will be a part of the Motley Crue 'All Bad Things Must Come To An End' tour through late November.
