Shock Rocker Alice Cooper Sets Fans Straight on the Devil: ‘He’s Going to Make You Feel Like a Million Bucks. But You Better Watch Out’

Alice Cooper is a lot of things. He's a shock rocker, a man of deep faith and a man of routine.

He wakes up at 5 a.m., golfs six times a week, eats a huge breakfast every day and is in bed before 11 p.m. The most important part of that daily routine, however, is the hour he sets aside each morning for prayer and Bible reading.


“Straight out of bed, make a cup of coffee, grab my Bible, then spend the next hour reading and praying,” Cooper revealed in a recent interview. “I read a couple of chapters a day — this is my 12th reading. It puts me in a positive frame of mind.”

That’s not to say the king of shock rock has left behind all things … well, shocking. His shows still appear like something right out of a horror movie.

Cooper has long held an affinity for “horror.” When he’s home, he and his wife will watch a horror movie most nights. And his in-home studio is so creepy (“full-sized clown dummies, creepy old dolls, a few axes”) that his wife, Sheryl, refuses to clean it.

You might be wondering how a Christian man like Cooper reconciles his appreciation of horror with his faith. But he obviously has a healthy understanding of what’s truly horrific and evil in this world — and it’s not a couple of clowns.

“I believe in heaven and hell. People think of the devil with horns and a pointy tail. Man, you are so far off the mark!” Cooper exclaimed. “The devil is going to be the best-looking, smoothest-talking guy in the room. He’s going to make you feel like a million bucks. But you better watch out because he’s got a whole different set of plans for you.”


Sounds like someone has studied 2 Corinthians 11 more than once … Make that 12 times.

“And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.” - 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 (NIV)

And don't miss this  video from 2019 where Alice and pastor Greg Laurie discuss why he still performs as a member of the Hollywood Vampires and goes to such extremes on stage:
