The storms battering the South Coast have blown themselves out by the time Club Uncut reconvenes for another year at The Great Escape festival. It’s after midnight and very nearly pitch-black in the Dome Studio just before our first night’s headliners, The Hold Steady, dramatically hit the lights, then the stage. “As the song says,” Craig Finn promises, “we’re gonna have a real good time together.”
Alice Cooper has claimed that branding Mumford and Sons a rock band would be an "offence to rock 'n' roll".
Speaking to Fuse, the shock-rock singer said that modern musicians were "afraid to be in a rock band" and claimed that the current generation need to "quit eating vegetarian food" and "eat a steak" instead.
For $10,000 (£6588), a fan of Alice Cooper can buy the chance to play a round of golf with the shock-rock legend.
The offer is part of a current Kickstarter campaign which is looking to secure funding for Uncle Alice Presents, a 12 part series of comics and a graphic novel created by Tom Sheppard and which feature Alice Cooper as the narrator and "demented, blood-soaked host".
