Aussie phenom Orianthi, who gained tremendous exposure when dubbed to be the guitarist on Michael Jackson's farewell tour, will now be touring with Alice Cooper. Here's how that came about:
* Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell had been playing with Thin Lizzy. He left to put his focus back on Def Leppard.
* Richard Fortus left Guns N Roses to fill Cambell's spot in Thin Lizzy.
* However, Fortus left Thin Lizzy to play with Guns N Roses again. GNR is apparently preparing for a US tour.
* So, Damon Johnson left Alice Cooper's band to join Thin Lizzy, and that opened up the slot that Orianthi is going to fill.
Orianthi is currently in the studio recording her new album. She confirmed the Alice Cooper news via Twitter.
