Alice Cooper prays every day: “I believe in Heaven and Hell”
About a year ago, rocker Alice Cooper disclosed that he prays to God every day, reads the Bible and got over an alcohol addiction because of Christianity.
Recently, the singer gave an insight into his daily life, which indeed centers around his faith.
“I am up before the sun; 5 AM is my time. Straight out of bed, make a cup of coffee, grab my Bible, then spend the next hour reading and praying,” he told The Times.
“I read a couple of chapters a day. This is my 12th reading. It puts me in a positive frame of mind,” he added.
74-year-old Alice Cooper also told The Times that quitting alcohol mixed with playing golf six times a week keeps him in good health.
“Thanks to [my wife] Sheryl – she committed me to an asylum for treatment – this is my 39th year sober. Being a dad changed everything for me. It gave me a reason to stay sober. On stage, I was Alice but, after the show, I wanted to be Dad. That life was better than a life in the bottle,” he explained.
Alice Cooper: “The devil is going to make you feel like a million bucks”
Like God is part of Alice Cooper’s morning routine, faith also plays a role in the singer’s evening procedure.
“If we are at home, we will watch a horror movie, but I am rarely in bed later than 11 PM. Then I pray for a while. I believe in Heaven and Hell. People think of the devil with horns and a pointy tail. Man, you are so far off the mark. The devil is going to be the best-looking, smoothest-talking guy in the room. He is going to make you feel like a million bucks. But you better watch out because he has got a whole different set of plans for you,” Alice Cooper told The Times.
European and American tours ahead
Alice Cooper, who was born with the civil name of Vincent Damon Furnier, has released seven band albums and no less than 21 solo albums since he started his music career in 1964.
