Vengeance Is Mine

I think Alice Cooper’s long-standing career points out that the whole drugs/alcohol scene in Rock & Roll doesn’t work. He’s been sober since the 1980s. It seems to work for him. (It also worked for Ted Nugent, but that’s another story.)

In 1986, Megadeth opened for Cooper on their US Constrictor tour. After noticing the abuse of alcohol and other drugs in the band, Cooper personally approached the band members to try to help them control their abuse, and he has stayed close to front man Dave Mustaine, who considers Cooper to be his “godfather”.[146] Since overcoming his own addiction to alcohol in the mid-1980s, Cooper has continued to help and counsel other rock musicians with addiction problems. “I’ve made myself very available to friends of mine – they’re people who would call me late at night and say, ‘Between you and me, I’ve got a problem.'” In recognition of the work he has done in helping other addicts in the recovery process, Cooper received in 2008 the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award at the fourth annual MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert in Los Angeles.

Not the image a born-again Christian usually portrays, that’s what Cooper is….

This is “Vengeance Is Mine” featuring guitarist Slash (Saul Hudson) of Guns N’ Roses. The song is by Alice Cooper from the 2008 album Along Came a Spider.

One thought on “Vengeance Is Mine

  1. It takes a big man to admit his flaws, a strong man to change, and a valiant man to acknowledge all these flaws, overcome them and help others. Few people can do this, its what any culture needs. You’ll not find them in politics or burning flags.
