Welcome To My Hologram

Alice Cooper is to make history by appearing in 4D.

This happens on Wednesday, May 11 at Battersea Power Station. Dubbed The Jagermeister Ice Cold Event, it will be the first ever holographic rock gig, and is being done to celebrate the release of the Alice Cooper box set Old School: 1964-1974. It will see the original Alice Cooper band (minus the late Glen Buxton) making their first appearance in the UK since 1972.

Says Alice: "We couldn’t resist this. Working with J├Ągermeister to appear as holograms on the other side of the Atlantic is the ultimate experience, a cutting-edge conjuring trick that celebrates the future and our history. We can't wait to see the results".

KISS In Studio

KISS has officially entered the studio to begin recording the follow-up to 2009's "Sonic Boom" for a late 2011 release.
Paul Stanley had this to say....
"Wednesday, April 13. We are in the studio again doing the follow-up to 'Sonic Boom'. Today is the first day in the studio. All the gear got set up yesterday. Eric [Singer] is sitting behind the drums feverishly waiting to cut that first track. So history will be made. This album, I'm telling you, everybody agrees, leaves 'Sonic Boom' in the dust. So this is awesome, and you'll be hearing it soon."

David Lee Roth - The Lost Years

According to KFMB-TV, a David Lee Roth fan that lost his camera during the singer's 1999 concert in Austin, Texas is in the process of having it returned — thanks to the Internet.

Greg Aulick captured Roth's performance on a disposable camera but ended up losing it — and all of the priceless memories it contained — because he "had a lot of Jack Daniels that night calming me down a little bit," he said.

The camera was recovered that same night by Matt Sellars, who's now a director at News 8 and was at the same concert almost 12 years ago. He took the camera home and forgot all about it until a year later when he came across it and decided to develop the pictures.

"Late last year I came across the pictures on my computer again and I thought with Facebook and YouTube now we could probably find this guy in a couple of weeks," Sellars said.

Vampire Face Lift...Really?!

Cosmetic procedures like using Botox, Restylane, and collagen could become a thing of the past now that a new wrinkle-removing procedure is hogging the spotlight.

The newest trend in cosmetic surgery is called the "vampire face-lift" and it's done by injecting the patient's own blood back into their face in order to smooth out the lines. Creepy? Yes. But many people are starting to swear by it and find it the safest way to inject since your injecting (gag!) your own blood back into your face.

And the Rocket's Red (Rocker) Glare...

Sammy Hagar says he had never performed the national anthem at a sporting event before kicking off Saturday's World Series ring ceremony for the San Francisco Giants.
"I just hope I can hit them notes," Hagar told before the performance. "It's a tough to sing, you know? I can sing so much higher. All these rock (songs), screaming and yelling. But the melody is so strict and so restricting for a singer that I'm nervous."
