Alice Cooper kicks off his usual busy summer and fall touring season on June 26, and he's added LA guitar wiz Nita Strauss to his touring band.
Strauss replaces the departing Orianthi and was recently ranked #1 on Guitar World's list of "10 Female Guitar Players You Should Know."
Nita has made her name in bands including the Iron Maidens, Femme Fatale, and she's the official guitarist of Gene Simmons' LA KISS arena football team.
