God, Drugs and Rock 'n' Roll: An Interview with Alice Cooper

In this exclusive one hour interview, Pastor and Evangelist Greg Laurie sits down with rock legend Alice Cooper. Alice Cooper is widely considered to be the father of “Shock Rock” and has sold more than 50 million albums worldwide. While he is known for his music career, most do not know that he is a committed Christian.

In this sprawling conversation recorded at, “The Rock” (a Teen Center created and started by Alice), Cooper and Laurie chat about his journey to faith, and how he has used his faith in Jesus Christ to help at-risk young men in his community.

Growing up in a Christian home, Cooper always knew he needed Christ. But it took a dramatic turn in a drug-induced haze when he realized he needed to recommit to Jesus Christ or he was finished. The son and grandson of preachers, Cooper knew who Jesus was and knew that Christianity was true, yet he wanted to walk his path—a trail that led him to the heights of stardom, partying, and calling friend some of the biggest names in show business.

Then it all changed. His marriage was falling apart and Cooper was in the pits of alcohol and drug use when he decided to quit and get clean. He began going to church and says that it was fear of God that brought him around, that he was terrified of Hell, and it was fear that saved him, but the love of Christ that grew him.

The conversation also includes musings by Cooper and Laurie about the so-called “27 Club,” various legends of rock and roll, as well as a discussion about depression, suicide, drugs, alcohol abuse, and the life it leads one to. The conversation in its entirety is a testament to the power of God and His transforming power and forgiveness, if we only accept Him and allow Him to change us for the better.
