Alice Cooper Guitarist Came to the Institute… And Conquered
On the last week of November, the mighty Ryan Roxie touched down at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance. Not only did he conduct one of the greatest guitar masterclasses the school has ever seen but he invited all the attendees to his gig at Powers for his ‘Coming Home’ tour that very same night!
Throughout the last 20+ years, this stalwart of the guitar world has played with everyone from Alice Cooper to Slash, appeared on over 30 albums and rocked some of the greatest venues in the world many times over.
The highly anticipated masterclass promised to be a fantastic clinic and it definitely did not disappoint. Ryan explained everything from several different warm up techniques to keeping your nerve when playing to a sell-out stadium crowd.
Post-masterclass, the real rocking out began, with Roxie 77 giving a sneak preview of their newest release, songs from Ryan’s previous band Electric Angels and to whet the rock tip, a few Alice Cooper classics were thrown into the mix. After ten years of playing guitar for Mr Cooper it would have been rude not to!
