Some things defy description and Alice Cooper has always done so with verve. Recently I was stunned to find that he was a golf enthusiast, so imagine my surprise when I saw this on a fellow Christian’s blog!
I will reserve comment, but will be interested in yours!
Thank you Steve Rebus for sharing this video on your blog.

Yes, I knew this. A.C. lives here in Arizona, and is highly respected. He gives a lot back to the community… too much to even write here. 🙂
I am not so interested in labels… a Christian, a golfer… what our occupation is or was, isn’t who we are (to me). It is the deep, inner spirit and life experiences that interest me in another person. I loved this interview, mostly because Alice Cooper is free to talk about his life and faith. It’s thoughtful on his part, and he seems genuine. It is based on life experiences and having understanding. THAT is what impresses me about him.
You always come up with the most interesting questions for us to ponder!
I would believe anything of a golfer.
I’m not interested in defining who we are by religion, colour, nationality or whatever.
There are so many good, genuine, down-to-earth people around and they don’t belong to any faith. They’re kind, thoughtful, sensitive people who love, laugh and cry with the rest of the world. They abhor war and violence.
Ultimately, I believe you should treat other people the way you would like to be treated yourself. Respect all religions as long as they don’t impinge on the lives of their fellow man in a negative way.
What right has anyone to say that someone else’s religion is right or wrong.
Beneath the surface we all have red blood. Deep down, I believe we are all interdependent. Even the hermit or wilderness dweller is dependent upon the life force of Nature to give them sustenance & shelter.
Why should they make a big deal about Alice Cooper being a Christian?
What makes society think that he should NOT be a Christian?
I’ve heard a couple of his (their) songs on XM radio recently, but they were not the heavy metal songs of my youth. I was surprised to find out who I was listening to. I was impressed by this interview.
Patti, I know I approved this message, but for some reason it didn’t take. Sorry!
I’m not familiar with this artist… don’t know his work or the songs he wrote. What I noticed were two things; that he said he wasn’t really living in his world, and that he didn’t seem to think much of parables. I think that parables very often speak of deep truths, even if they aren’t an accurate description of things that happened. Not everything is given to be understood on the surface.
I blogged about Alice first!
Back in 2008: http://isntso.wordpress.com/2008/09/04/go-ask-alice/
PS: Alice used to golf with George Burns, back in the day. 🙂
You have a blog? Did I know this before today? 😀
Your article on AC is quite comprehensive, Pam, thank you for sharing it with me!
My blog has been idle for a coupla years. As for comprehensive, i WAS the premiere Alice Fan of the western end of Orange County!
I don’t believe this ever came up before…
I find this amazing, and fun! BTW, did you know that the thing with the baby chick was a stage trick? He set the whole thing up and in his words: “They saw what they wanted to see.” (paraphrased) 😛
The version I heard was that Alice, being a city boy, thought the chicken would fly. He was allegedly horrified when the the crowd tore it apart.
Never heard about that! EW! My version was that he stomped on it on stage. In an interview (golfing thing on PBS) he claimed it was set up and the audience saw what they wanted to see…
I am certain, given his penchant for theatrics, that both the version you heard about the chicken, and his chick story are true! 😉
