Alice Cooper: ‘I teach bible classes to kids’

Godfather of shock rock reveals what he does on his day off ahead of UK tour

Alice Cooper has revealed that he’s been teaching bible classes to kids.

The godfather of shock rock works as a substitute teacher at his local church in Arizona, reports The Sun.

He said:

You should see the look on people’s faces. ‘Alice Cooper teaching Bible class? But he’s the spawn of the Devil!’


The singer, whose real name is Vincent Furnier also said his father was a pastor and that inspired him to take up the classes.”Surely people get it by now – Alice is just a character,” he added. “Alice hates going to church, but I go every Sunday.”

The shock rocker is due to kick off his Halloween Night Of Fear UK tour next Tuesday (October 25) at Sheffield City Hall before finishing up in Glasgow on Halloween night itself (31). The New York Dolls will provide support.

Alice Cooper will play:

Sheffield City Hall (October 25)
Bristol Colston Hall (26)
Birmingham NIA (27)
London Alexandra Palace (29)
Manchester O2 Apollo (30)
Glasgow Clyde Auditorium (31)
