ALICE COOPER Urges Young Stars To Avoid Drugs And Alcohol!

By on 5 March, 2011

Rocker Alice Cooper has warned young stars to behave themselves or risk wrecking their career with drink and drugs!

The music veteran enjoyed the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle to the full throughout his early years in the spotlight, but has been sober since overcoming his addictions in the 1980s.

Cooper fears young stars of today will still fall victim to the same problems that shook his career, but he’s convinced they won’t be able to bounce back as easily – and he’s urging them to take more care or risk losing everything they have worked for.

Speaking on Fox News, he says:

“It was fun in the ’60s and ’70s but those days are gone, if you are living in this day and age there are way too many things to stop your career and not enough things to keep it going. In this business… you have to be totally professional, always be there half an hour early not half an hour late. Be ready to work and do what you are supposed to do.

“If you’re doing a movie, know your lines, if you’re doing an album then don’t show up and not know what you’re doing because that’s the stereotypical thing people think rock stars are… it’s not really true. We get in the studio and know exactly what we’re doing…. If you wanted to stick around you really had to be professional.

“Our band really believed in that. We were over-rehearsed, we never dared come in late. What that says to me is that my time is more important than yours, and that is insulting. You don’t need enemies in this business, you need friends.”
