Alice Cooper Shares His Wisdom With Marilyn Manson

(Classic Rock) Alice Cooper offered Marilyn Manson a few lessons in life when the pair met up ahead of their double-header US tour, which kicked off on June 1.

The shock-rock icons kept talking long after Manson had appeared on Cooper's radio show recently, and the older man admits the pair were "feeling each other out."

Cooper tells Rolling Stone: "We have a lot in common in the fact that we both play characters. We both created a couple of monster characters. What we talked about on my show was, how do you deal with that character against your real life? It's so overpowering does it ever take over?

"I've had a lot more time to work with Alice, so I know when to be Alice and when not to be Alice. I told him it's very hard to maintain a character 24 hours a day, and there may come a time when you have to divorce yourself from the character just so you'll like the character."

He remembers: "I thought I had to be that character all the time and it nearly killed me. I'm trying to drink with Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix and those guys, and they're professionals, and I'm like 18 years old. That's when I realised I have to allow myself to be me. Then I really appreciate playing the character of Alice." More.
