Heavy Metal Superstar Alice Cooper says Jesus Saved Him from Life of Despair

From the Daily Caller News Foundation:

Legendary rock star Alice Cooper said his faith in Jesus helped him beat his addiction to alcohol and turn his life around, during an interview with The Daily News’ Confidential.

“Everything that could go wrong was shutting down inside of me,” Cooper told Confidential. “I was drinking with Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix and trying to keep up with Keith Moon and they all died at 27.”

Cooper thought he was going to die too if he continued down the path he was on and eventually he was diagnosed as an alcoholic. After leaving the hospital, Cooper embraced his Christian faith and went back to his roots to rediscover Christ.

“My wife and I are both Christian,” Cooper said. “My father was a pastor, my grandfather was an evangelist. I grew up in the church, went as far away as I could from it — almost died — and then came back to the church.”

“There’s nothing in Christianity that says I can’t be a rock star,” Cooper added. “People have a very warped view of Christianity. They think it’s all very precise and we never do wrong and we’re praying all day and we’re right-wing. It has nothing to do with that. It has to do with a one-on-one relationship with Jesus Christ.”

Cooper will be reprising the role of King Herod in NBC’s “Jesus Christ Superstar” on Easter Sunday and says he will channel the late Alan Rickman in his performance, according to Confidential’s Sunday report.

“When I first heard about it, I thought Alan Rickman — that condescending sort of arrogant character,” Cooper said. “And I kind of fashioned what I would do after what I thought Alan Rickman would do if he were alive.”
