Alice Cooper…. everyone knows that name.  Everyone knows the face behind that name.  Dark hair, dark eyes and black makeup.  Alice Cooper is more than a huge stage performance and hit music from over forty years.  The man behind Alice is really an amazing, inspirational and kind person.

Alice Cooper, or Coop as he told us to call him, is making his way through the states and heading to Atlanta next week.  He plays the Cobb Energy Center on December 13th. Get your tickets now HERE.

Listen as Alice Cooper talks about his show, his kids and what valuable advice he gives to musicians in Atlanta.

Alice Cooper brings the “No More Mr Nice Guy” show to Cobb Energy Centre, which has played to audiences in North America, South America, Australia and Europe since May, and which has received rave reviews from both fans and media worldwide. His highly anticipated return to Atlanta coincides with the release of his new Welcome 2 My Nightmare album, out through Sony Music on Tuesday, September 13. The album, produced by longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin – who also produced the original “Welcome To My Nightmare” album in 1975 – features a host of special guests (including the three other surviving members of the original band, “Nightmare” guitarists Steve Hunter and Dick Wagner, Alice’s touring band, Vince Gill, Rob Zombie, and, most shockingly, Ke$ha) as Alice revisits his legendary nightmares.

The original release is an all-time rock classic that spawned a worldwide theatrical tour and certified Alice Cooper as a visionary trailblazer whose influence persists today in rock, metal, pop, punk, theatre, television, film and much more. More than 35 years later, Alice and Ezrin have resurrected the horror and humor for a new generation.

    I went to see original 1975 welcome to my nightmare concert in Duluth,MN I was 14 years old WOW. He was great then and still is now! I visit Arizona often He is loved in Arizona for the wonderful humanitarian things he does. So not only is he a great musician/theatrical performer but also a wonderful person!

    Unlike many performers that have been around as long as Alice has, the Coop still is every bit as good as he was thirty years ago. I love the new album. Some of his best albums ever have been in the last ten or fifteen years and he is a nice guy to boot.as well.

    Loved the interview. So great to listen to a level headed guy who has made it in the music business as triumphantly as Alice has. Nice to know that we have so many things in common too – the length of our sobriety, love of our kids, a marriage that has lasted, taste in all kinds of music, and golf. I will be there in Atlanta when he comes to the Cobb Energy Center. I am going with my son. He is 19 and I can’t wait for him to catch your show. This will be my 4th Alice experience. Long live the Master!

    Very nice interview. Alice grabs anyone’s attention and enthusiasm for good rock music with his words and history in rock music. Something I had hardly noticed was how good one had to be, particularly in the early/mid 70’s to be able to stand out among so many good bands, singers and songwriters. And Alice DID because he is so talented! And fortunately there’s no need for a sequel to From The Inside (an album that any addict should listen to carefully.) Long live, Alice!
