Alice Cooper's Lost Years

Watching an interview with Alice Cooper from 1981. This was hist "lost" period, in which he claims to have little memory due to the oblivion of alcohol. Despite his apparent haziness during this interview, there's a certain lucidity, a recognition of how the world works, and some interesting insights.

I always enjoyed the albums from that period: Special Forces , Zipper Catches Skin , Dada . They were zany and weird and punk-ish, with great songwriting. He never performs that stuff live anymore, though I think more than a few fans would love to hear some of those songs...
