During a recent conversation with Toni Gonzalez of Loudwire Nights, Nita Strauss talked about a conversation she had with Alice Cooper, letting him know she was exiting his band. It was back in July when news came out that Strauss would be leaving Cooper’s band; not long after that, it was confirmed that Strauss would be joining that of Demi Lovato’s touring band.

Regarding her decision to join Demi’s band, Nita went right to Alice to talk about that decision. Per what she told Loudwire, this is how Cooper reacted to Strauss leaving his band:

“Demi is a powerhouse. The new record is so cool, so riffy and so heavy compared to anything that she’s done in the past. I was really excited for the opportunity. I went to Alice, I did it face-to-face. We were just started the U.K. leg of the last Alice tour, and I went to his hotel room and talked to him and his wife Sheryl.

“They hugged me and were so happy and gave their absolute blessing. Alice said, ‘We’re so proud of you. Go out, shine your light, have a great time and we’ll see what happens for next year.’ There was never a, ‘Hey, I quit, goodbye, thanks for everything.’ It was just, ‘I’m gonna take a step back, try something different for a few months and we’ll regroup and see what happens.'”

We are glad to hear that everything went down well and all parties are happy! In other Alice Cooper related news, the shock-rocker will be hitting the road soon for a brand new tour. You can find all his upcoming tour dates and locations below.
