Ryan Roxie’s Name Game
Alice Cooper and Tommy Clufetos share their frustrations over what people call them in trailer for guitarist’s upcoming TV show.
Alice Cooper gets frustrated when people shout his real name… and Tommy Clufetos wishes his bandmates could just get his right.
Their admissions come in a trailer released by Alice guitarist Ryan Roxie, who’s gearing up to launch his TV show, All Excess.
In the light-hearted clips the shock-rock pioneer, who’s currently Roxie’s boss, discusses the fact his real name is Vincent Furnier, saying: “Even my mum is wrong when she calls me Vince. When I’m walking through the mall and you go, ‘Hey, Vince,’ I stop and go, ‘If Elton John was here would you go, Hey, Reggie?’”
As Roxie tries to interview former bandmate Clufetos, but mispronounces his surname seven times, leaving the drummer to exclaim: “For the last eight years… come on, Roxie bitch.”
Meanwhile, Udo Dirkschneider of UDO and Accept fame denies he’s ever been in a gay metal band as Roxie asks: “Balls To The Wall has no reference to any glory hole whatsoever?” Then adds: “Do you know what a glory hole is?”
The presenter says his new series won’t be the same as his previous work on The Big Rock Show: “I want to do an interview-type show that takes the person out of their comfort zone. Maybe walking the streets in Stockholm or hanging out somewhere they’re not used to hanging out. What I’m looking in interviews is just weird – interesting and inspiring things to talk about.”
All Excess with Ryan Roxie may be broadcast as a section within another TV show, or may be released online. Negotiations are continuing.
