Shock Rocker Alice Cooper Has An Audible Original Titled ‘Who I Really Am: Diary of a Vampire’
Alice Cooper went from playing in a crowd of 95,000 to an audience of zero.
So the shock rocker decided to do something shocking: dance your blues away.
On Friday, the 73-year-old told The Associated Press that, during the lockdown, he used his downtime in Phoenix by learning to dance. The family practiced in the backyard, according to the outlet.
The rock icon admitted, “It was like coming off a drug because adrenaline is your medicine.” “I mean, everyone’s cool. But you miss that adrenaline, face-to-face.”
Cooper shared that he is not a fan of Zoom and has not converted to online performances to keep busy during the coronavirus pandemic.

“It’s still flat and there are no spectators,” he said. “So don’t try to fake it.”
But now Cooper is back on the road and is even “circling at rehearsals.”
“I feel more at home than off stage,” he said.
Cooper is running several live shows until November. However, the star said that he would not show off his new moves.

But one thing fans can expect as Cooper hits the road are his snakes, a key element of his live shows.
“The funny thing about boa constrictors is that they have their own mind on stage,” he said. “I just let him go wherever he needs to go, and I have to improvise where he is. Every night it’s different.”
Cooper admitted that traveling with his serpents is getting harder because they now need a passport instead of a permit.
Could he have declared his snakes as medical animals? this is complex.

“I think the only difference would be that my snake might eat someone else’s treated animal,” she said with a laugh.
In addition to making up for lost time on tour, her latest project is an Audible original titled “Who I Really Am: Diary of a Vampire.” The piece, narrated by Cooper, includes anecdotes from his life on tour, as well as acoustic recordings of several of his hit tracks, such as “I’m Eighteen,” “School Out” and “Poison.” Cooper said it was “really fun” to do different versions of his songs with just a guitar or piano.
The Audible Original is just over two hours long and, with a career spanning over half a century, Cooper has many more stories to tell.
“I have to wait for about eight more people to die before I can write that book,” Cooper said.
