Alice Cooper denies reports he has a death pact with his wife

“Whenever it does happen, we are going to go together. "

Rock icon Alice Cooper has denied reports that he has a death pact with his wife, after a marriage lasting 43 years.

The shock-rock legend, who is currently touring with The Hollywood Vampires, reportedly told The Mirror that he and wife Sheryl Goddard have agreed that there is no way they can live without each other.

Explaining the pact, he said: “We’ve made a pact – there is no way of surviving without each other. I couldn’t live without her. We always said there will never be a time when one of us will be mourning the other.”

“She dances better now than she did in 1975. You would think people would want to get away from the wives but she is my best friend. And there is no way of surviving without each other.”

However, he’s now remaining optimistic and says it’s a Life Pact instead.

“Sheryl and I do NOT have a death pact, we have a LIFE pact.  We love life so much,” Cooper said in a subsequent statement.

“What I was meaning was that because we’re almost always together, at home and on the road, that if something did happen to either of us, we’d most likely be together at the time.  But neither of us has a suicide pact.  We have a life pact.  And, besides, I’m booked through 2028, so…”

Hailing his wife as “indestructible”, Cooper previously added: ” It must be in the genes. I’m 71 and weigh the same I did when I was 30. I’ve got that body that doesn’t get exhausted. I don’t smoke. I haven’t had a drink for 37 years.

“I’m the only one in the band that doesn’t get sick. I cut out sugar and I drink a lot of Diet Cokes. Maybe they are keeping me well.

“And the two-hour stage show is your aerobic.”

Meanwhile, Cooper recently discussed Johnny Depp’s contribution to the Hollywood Vampires album – admitting that he “spits venom” on the record.
