DRAGONFORCE Guitarist HERMAN LI Opens Up About NITA STRAUSS Joining DEMI LOVATO’s Live Band – “It’s A Huge Step For Her; I Think She’s Gonna Prove It, And Everyone Will Shut Up More late”

Guitarist Nita Strauss recently announced that she will not be joining Alice Cooper for her upcoming fall tour. She shared the following message:

“After this absolutely incredible run in Europe, it is bittersweet for me to let you know that I will not be joining Alice Cooper’s band for the upcoming fall tour. I will also reluctantly have to cancel the festival dates that my solo group had planned for the rest of the year.

I AM NOT PREGNANT !!! There’s no drama and my touring year is still VERY busy – in fact, I’m on a direct flight to the next adventure as I post this, and I’ll be back on stage much sooner than you think. think so! But that’s news for another day.

The last eight years together have been the experience of a lifetime, and I couldn’t be more grateful to Alice and Sheryl Cooper, Shep Gordon, the amazing band, crew and fans for welcoming me into all your nightmare.

I don’t know what the future holds after that, but I’m forever grateful.”

Rumors that Strauss had joined pop star Demi Lovatao’s live band were later proven to be true, with live footage and rehearsals uploaded shortly after his departure was announced.

Now, DragonForce guitarist Herman Li has weighed in on Strauss’ departure from Alice Cooper’s band, which many fans believe was a risky move.

Li: “I think it’s a huge step for her, and she has to prove it – and I think she’s going to prove it, and everyone will shut up later. But understand that too; she’s already proven, she was in the alice cooper band for 8 years. And let’s be serious…it’s a lot harder for women to be in this industry. A lot harder. You have to take this chance when you get it.

So for all those people out there who don’t understand that, I give it to you as far as I understand it; this world of music is difficult. Ever since you did the Alice Cooper concert, everyone knows who you are. Now let’s break new ground and see if you can inspire more people to play the guitar. I think it’s a bold move. Let’s see what happens.”

On July 14, Demi Lovato performed her new single, “Substance,” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with Strauss in his backing band. Watch the video below.
