L O C K D O W N⁣ ⁣With schools, gyms, restaurants and many more businesses closed and so many of us laying low for at least the next couple weeks, how are YOU going to use your time? It’s interesting to watch this all unfold… I can’t remember another event in my lifetime that has literally affected everyone I know worldwide like this. I think it’s important to remember that although things might be weird in the world right now, time at home does not have to be unproductive 🙌🏻⁣ ⁣ What’s something YOU plan to do to use this time wisely? Post in the comments to maybe inspire more people to follow your example! For me- I’m going to be playing a ton of guitar and finishing my album 🎶⁣ ⁣ 📸 @jacklue (no, this is not my house)⁣

Strauss said the following:

“Just a quick update for anyone asking about more clinics on the upcoming tour 🖤 I have made a conscious effort to back away from over scheduling myself this last month so I can focus my day off energy on something very important- WRITING!! Album 2 is very much on the way!!!! 😏🎉.

I’m not going to do a Kickstarter this time around but I have spent this break working on something for anyone who would like to be a part of it and get an inside look at the process, so stay tuned for that this week!

So crazy to think that the next leg of @alicecooper tour starts in 5 days!!! It seems like we just got home 🤯🤯 Can’t wait to see you all out on the road!

Nita Strauss Working On Second Solo Album

Nita Strauss (Alice Cooper, etc.) has revealed that she has started working on her second solo album. The guitarist told Heavy1 TV the following:

“I wrote the majority of ‘Controlled Chaos’ while I was on the previous Alice Cooper tour, so I’m falling right back into the pattern of writing my album on days off. I’ve got my Pro Tools rig out here, so I’m just writing and recording. And we’ll do some more clinics, do some more solo touring, do some more touring with Alice, and then I’m hopeful for a second album release in late 2020.”
