VIDEO: Alice Cooper debuts new guitarist Nita Strauss

Alice Cooper debuted his new guitarist Nita Strauss during a series of three solo dates in Michigan as he and the band warm up for the launch of the Motley Crue farewell tour in Grand Rapids on Wednesday.

Formerly of the all-girl tribute band The Iron Maidens, Strauss recently replaced Orianthi in Cooper’s band and the Crue trek will be her first with the group.

Earlier this month, the shock rocker released the new documentary film, “Super Duper Alice Cooper.”

Available on DVD, Blu-ray and Deluxe Limited Edition box, the project tells the tale of how preacher’s son Vincent Furnier went on to strike fear into the hearts of parents as Alice Cooper.

Produced by Banger Films ("Metal: A Headbangers Journey", "Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage"), “Super Duper Alice Cooper” is a blend of documentary archive footage, animation and rock opera.

The DVD and Blu-ray version of the film includes bonus deleted scenes, Alice Cooper interviews from the VH1 Classic series "Metal Evolution", and additional rare footage.

The Deluxe Edition features not only the full film on DVD and Blu-ray, but also a second DVD of previously unreleased concert footage from Montreal University in 1972, and a CD of Cooper's performance at the 2009 Montreux Jazz Festival, all housed in an LP-sized box with 60-page hardback photobook.
