    Alice Cooper believes his faith saved him from alcoholism, temptations of rock star lifestyle

    -Alice Cooper had a major wake-up call nearly 40 years ago, when he found himself throwing up blood.

    "Everything that could go wrong was shutting down inside of me," Cooper, who is preparing to reprise his role as King Herod in NBC's live version of "Jesus Christ Superstar," told the New York Daily News' Confidential.

    The rocker, who saw his good friends and fellow musicians die young, knew he needed to clean up his act.

    "I was drinking with Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix and trying to keep up with Keith Moon and they all died at 27," Cooper recalled.

    The legendary rocker said it was at that moment he knew he either had to give up drinking or he would die too. It was then that Cooper turned to his faith.

    "My wife and I are both Christian," the 70-year-old said. "My father was a pastor, my grandfather was an evangelist. I grew up in the church, went as far away as I could from it — almost died — and then came back to the church."

    Cooper acknowledges that a lot of people don't understand how he can be a rock musician but still be a Christian...

    Question

    Oh okay, he said he came back to the "church", not he came back to Christ. Something about a man wearing dark eye make-up, looking like a demon that doesn't project a Christ-like image in my mind. But maybe I'm missing something?

    You have to admit though, he's pretty funny when he's making fun of himself.

    I remember when the original Jesus Christ Superstar came out (back in the 70's) - I thought it was sooo cool - The music was amazing...

    But now that I'm a Christian, I don't think I'll watch it, because I'm sure it's gonna be "politically correct" and not scripturally accurate.

    They're probably gonna hint at some type of homosexual relationship between Jesus and one of the disciples, or an affair between him and Mary Magdalene.

    I'll wait for your review of it, Sis.

    Not exactly on topic, but your post reminded me that I watched the new "Roseanne" last night. I was a little disappointed. I may start a thread in the Babylonian TV section about it.

    I heard snippets of it on Hannity, loved it, it was hilarious!

    I never, ever watched Rosanne when her show was on before, I think I may watch it next time it’s on.
