Alice Cooper Once Given A Month To Live By Doctor

(TeamRock Radio) Alice Cooper feels justified in celebrating the dead members of his Hollywood Vampires drinking club - because he once came within a month of joining them.

The shock-rock icon has recalled how his doctor warned he only had weeks to live if he didn't stop drinking, after he'd started throwing up blood in 1982.

Until that point he'd been the leader of the Vampires, who met in the Rainbow Bar And Grill in Hollywood and included Keith Moon, John Lennon, Harry Nilsson and others. Most of them had passed away by the time he went to the doctor.

Cooper tells Rolling Stone: "He told me, 'If you want to join your buddies, I'll give you another month. Just keep going how you're going and you'll be with them.'

"I went, 'Uh.' He said, 'You have a choice of stopping or joining them.' At that point I said, 'I'm a little tired of this.' I didn't want to die." He adds: "I guarantee you - Steven Tyler, Ozzy, Iggy, all the guys that are still here went through that decision. That's why we're all still here." Read more here.
