"You can't shock much with rock 'n' roll anymore. I'm more shocked by CNN than Lady Gaga," says Cooper. "She puts on a great show, challenges us while being stylistic, and makes the records to back it up. It's like us; if we didn't have hit records, there would've never been Alice Cooper."

That would've been a damn shame. Because this little band from Phoenix wouldn't have ended up as the biggest shock-rock band in the world, changing the genre yet keeping their own unfaltering brand of music, all while proving that things aren't always what they seem.

Because for Alice Cooper, life on and off stage is a weird balancing act.

"I think it's interesting that I'm a Christian and Alice Cooper, but it's a challenge. And while my comical horror character isn't the same I played in the '70s, we've never stopped taking it a step further," says Cooper. "Think how many times I've actually almost died over the years. And now on stage every night, they kill me."
