ALICE COOPER DISCUSSES STRUGGLE TO SEPARATE STAGE PERSONA FROM HIS TRUE SELF

Alice Cooper Discusses Struggle To Separate Stage Persona From His True Self

Alice Cooper has revealed about his early struggles to separate his stage persona from his true self.

Cooper opened about his real life during a candid conversation with Dan Rather on a new episode of AXS TV’s “The Big Interview,” which aired on Wednesday, October 30.

“I got to a point where I didn’t really know where Alice began,” Cooper says. “If I went out to a bar that night, [I thought] ‘Do I take the snake? Do I put the makeup on? I don’t want to disappoint anybody.’ When I got sober, I realized that I had to separate the two.”

Cooper explains that he actually has very little in common with his alter ego.

“He’s a very arrogant villain. He’s a very condescending, Alan Rickman-type [character],” Cooper continues. “The audience loves that… and I’ll play that to the hilt tonight.”

He adds, “But as soon as the curtain comes down, [I’m like] ‘Did the Tigers win today?’ I have three grandsons, my wife and I go to church on Sunday, I was on the PTA, I coached Little League.”
