Hangin' With Mr. Cooper
Alice Cooper, that is ...
Alice Cooper is a man of contradictions: A subversive performer with a golf habit. A recovered alcoholic who owns a bar. A heavy metal rocker with a strong sense of family values. During a phone interview between the legendary master of horrors and frights and the Alibi, Alice Cooper talked about everything from reality shows to miracles. We didn't have space for the full conversation, so we gathered the most choice quotes for your incongruous reading pleasure.
"I just don't understand why rock stars keep marrying strippers. That's like saying, 'I really don't want this to work.'"
"Where's the librarian? There's no librarian."
"I tell people I'm not a cured alcoholic, I'm healed. And they say, 'What does that mean?' What it means is I believe in miracles."
"I don't see one person I would back right now."
"It is the most addictive game in the world, so a lot of people say I traded one bad habit for a worse one."
"I like people that go way out on a limb and do things that are really, really bizarre."
"My whole band is going as different periods of Alice Cooper.”
