AceShowbiz - Behind his grunge metal look, Alice Cooper is a devout Christian who has been leading himself clean from alcohol since mod-1980s. Unlike many whose straight life begins with a rediscovery of faith, the rocker admitted he was not a Christian when he gave up booze more than three decades ago. He, however, credited God for "taking it away," saying, "I mean if He [God] can part the Red Sea and create the universe, He can certainly take alcoholism away from somebody."
The 71-year-old musician, who has been helping and counseling other rockers with addiction problems since overcoming his own alcohol addiction, also talked about his faith in an interview with CNS News. "Before, you're always self-centered, everything is always for you, yourself is God," he said on the difference his faith has made in his life. "Humans make lousy gods, we have to let God be God and us be what we are."
