Nita Strauss was recently asked about the top thing she learned from being the guitarist of shock rock legend Alice Cooper.
She told Guitar World: "From Alice specifically, it's about being grateful for what you have.
"I've seen him interact with a lot of people over the years I've been with the band, and he's always so gracious with everyone he meets. He always takes the time and is very welcoming and will listen to everyone's story about the fist time they heard 'Welcome to My Nightmare.'
"He's genuinely happy and grateful and takes all of his fans and the people he meets very dearly. For someone who's been in that position for as long as he has to stay so humble is very inspiring."
In recent news_backup, Nita unleashed an instrumental track titled "Pandemonium" a while back.
She said about the tune: "[Releasing an instrumental song is] something that's been on my bucket list. All of my heroes are instrumental guys, guys like Joe Satriani, Paul Gilbert, Jason Becker and Marty Friedman. I never thought I was the caliber of player to put out a song that was just guitar and music, but when Steve [Vai] asked me if I wanted to do a song [for the 'She Rocks' compilation], it was no question in my mind. I was going to jump at the chance."
