Alice Cooper Says He Lost 15 Pounds After Contracting COVID-19 Last December

During a recent interview with AZ Central, Alice Cooper discussed his and his wife’s battles with COVID-19. The couple contracted the disease last December and have since been vaccinated. Cooper said the following:

“We were wiped out. We didn’t have to go to the hospital or anything like that. But I lost 15 pounds. I couldn’t sleep. I couldn’t eat. Now, I’m feeling pretty good. I’m feeling like I’m at least 95%.”

After his initial sickness, the frontman slowly got better:

“Every day you feel two percent better. Then you get a little bit better, the next day a little bit better, until finally, you’re going, ‘Oh, wait a minute, I feel almost normal now.’ But it does take it out of you. I mean, it’s like pneumonia. It takes a while to get your sea legs back under you.”

Alice Cooper Gets COVID-19 Vaccine After Previously Contracting The Disease

According to AZCentral, Alice Cooper and his wife Sheryl recently received COVID-19 vaccines in Phoenix, AZ. The singer says that the two already had the disease, “but [they] got vaccinated anyway.” The couple were volunteering with the Maricopa County Department of Public Health Medical Reserve Corps when they got their shots. Team Rubicon, a nonprofit organization that pairs military veterans with first responders, was on hand to help out and their Phoenix Communications Coordinator Rich Mogull commented:

“It was great. The Coopers showed up and none of these volunteers knew they were going to be there. They got autographs and got to talk to Alice and his wife.”

Alice added:

“Everybody out here’s been really nice. You don’t feel like you are in danger of anything.”

Alice Cooper Premieres “Social Debris” Video

Alice Cooper has premiered a new video for his new song “Social Debris.” This track is from his new album “Detroit Stories,” which will be released on February 26. Cooper commented:

“The single ‘Social Debris’ is a gift to Detroit, to my fans and to myself. The track was written by the original Alice Cooper band. We never thought that we would ever fit in; the Alice Cooper band didn’t fit in with anybody, because we were doing things that no other band did. We didn’t fit in with the folk scene, we didn’t fit in with the metal scene, we really didn’t fit in with anything that was going on at that time. We just always felt like we were outsiders. We felt like we were social debris, we were in our own little world. So ‘Social Debris’ was just the original band writing a song about us, essentially. And it came out sounding like it belonged into 1971. That’s just the original band — you can’t change that. It’s great.”

Watch Alice Cooper Sing New Song For Ailing Zak Nilsson

Alice Cooper has written a new song for Zak Nilsson, the son of late musician Harry Nilsson. Zak is currently suffering from end-stage colon cancer and Cooper tried to lift his spirits by singing him the track during an episode of “Coffee Talk With Adika Live.” That series is hosted by Zak’s friends, bassist Stefan Adika and music journalist Corey Levitan, who invited him on the show to discuss his battle with cancer before surprising him with the performance from Cooper.

Alice Cooper Premieres New Song “Our Love Will Change The World”

Alice Cooper has premiered a new song titled “Our Love Will Change The World.” This track is from his new album “Detroit Stories,” which will be released on February 26. Cooper said the following about the song:

“I think ‘Our Love Will Change The World’ is one of the oddest songs I’ve ever done, and it was one that came to us by somebody else, another Detroit writer. And it was so strange, because it was happy and what it was saying was anything but happy — it was simply a great juxtaposition. And I got it immediately and said, ‘Okay, this is going to be great.’ The music saying one thing and the lyrics saying something else, I love that song. It is totally different from anything else on the album.”

Cooper discussed how the city of Detroit influenced the record:

“Detroit was heavy rock central then. You’d play the Eastown and it would be Alice Cooper, Ted Nugent, The Stooges and The Who, for $4! The next weekend at the Grande it was MC5, Brownsville Station and Fleetwood Mac, or Savoy Brown or the Small Faces. You couldn’t be a soft-rock band or you’d get your ass kicked.

Los Angeles had its sound with The Doors, Love and Buffalo Springfield. San Francisco had the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane. New York had The Rascals and The Velvet Underground. But Detroit was the birthplace of angry hard rock. After not fitting in anywhere in the U.S. (musically or image wise) Detroit was the only place that recognized the Alice Cooper guitar-driven hard rock sound and our crazy stage show. Detroit was a haven for the outcasts. And when they found out I was born in East Detroit… we were home.”

Producer Bob Ezrin added:

“We recorded with Wayne Kramer (guitarist and writer from the MC5), Johnny “Bee” Badanjek (drums; from the legendary Detroit Wheels), Paul Randolph (legendary Detroit jazz and R&B bassist) as well as the Motor City Horns and other local musicians. We had musical ideas and encouragement from John Varvatos, the support of the folks at Shinola, and we recorded at Rustbelt Studios in Royal Oak. This was made in Detroit for Detroit by Detroit denizens!”

“Detroit Stories” will be available on CD, CD+DVD digipak, vinyl, and as a box set. Notably the box set will include a CD, a Blu-ray featuring Cooper’s “A Paranormal Evening At The Olympia Paris” performance, a shirt, a face mask, a torch light, and three stickers.
