Throughout his career, Alice Cooper is notorious for always having some of the most talented musicians in the business play in his band. Recently, when Cooper needed a bright new star to replace (ex-Michael Jackson) guitarist Orianthi, who was leaving to join Richie Sambora’s band, he picked the most talented - and quite frankly, hottest looking guitarist out there - Nita Strauss.
The 27 year old L.A. native was no stranger to fans of hard rock music. She was one of the guitarists in the all-female Iron Maiden tribute band, The Iron Maidens. Nita was also responsible for performing the national anthem at all of the home games this past season for the KISS owned arena football team - L.A. KISS. In addition, she was a session guitarist for many years.
Nita Strauss is a true rock star, with amazing guitar skills, a hard work ethic, and great stage presence. She instantly wins over new fans every time she steps on stage. It’s just a matter of time before she is regarded as one of the top guitarists in rock music.
What follows is an exclusive RMS interview with Nita Strauss. During this conversation, we discussed how she became the newest member of the Alice Cooper band, and much more.
