Rock And Roll Hall Of Famer Alice Cooper “Jesus Saved Me from Cocaine and Sin”

Legendary rocker Alice Cooper made a career out of his “shock rock,” syle. Alice recently sat down with pastor Greg Laurie in a new interview and says he’s also a Christian who wants to help teens in the name of Jesus.

Laurie arranged the interview with Cooper after he had visited his church. Laurie serves as head pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in California.

Laurie interviewed the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer at Cooper’s Solid Rock teen center, which he founded back in 1995 to help troubled teens. Solid Rock is a non-profit, faith-based organization based in Phoenix.

“We’re all Christian guys,” Cooper said of the men and women who help found and run Solid Rock. “And Lord told us to do it. So we just obeyed. That’s all.”

Cooper came up with the idea for Solid Rock after seeing two teens exchange drugs.

“I watched a couple of 16-year-old kids do a drug deal on the corner and I went, ‘How does that kid not know he might be a great guitar player? Or that other kid might be a drummer?’ And it just struck me right then: Why don’t we open that, give them that alternative to go there?”

Laurie posted several clips from his interview on twitter. With a more full-length interview to be released in the future.

“You’re not ashamed to say that you believe in Jesus Christ?” Laurie asked.

Cooper said he was not.

“People talk about Alice being a rebel,” Cooper explained. “There was never a rebel, more of a rebel than Jesus Christ. You want to talk about a rebel. He was the ultimate.”

Christ, Cooper said, rescued him from an addiction to cocaine. He knew he was destined for Hell in his old life, he said.

“I knew that there … had to come a point where either I accepted Christ and started living that life, or if I died in this [sin], I was in a lot of trouble,” he said. “And that’s what really motivated me.”

Cooper said he gave a Bible to Marilyn Manson.
