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.”
