Alice Cooper: My best song is yet to come

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Alice Cooper doesn't think he's writ­ten his "best song" yet. The 69-year-old rocker has en­joyed decades of suc­cess but is show­ing no signs of slow­ing down and wants to con­tinue be­ing cre­ative and striv­ing to do bet­ter with ev­ery record. He said: "I'm sure Dy­lan doesn't think he's writ­ten his best song yet, nor Paul McCart­ney. And I be­lieve my best song is still out there some­where too. "I don't know how many years I've got left but as long as I'm here I'm go­ing to do what I do best." And the 'School's Out' hit­maker has no de­sire to re­tire be­cause he still "be­longs" on stage and both he and his wife Sh­eryl God­dard, one of his dancers, get "rest­less" if they take too much time off. He told MOJO mag­a­zine: "I feel bet­ter now phys­i­cally than I ever have in my life. I'll get up on stage and do that show and be the only one who's not breath­ing hard. "I'm not mak­ing records now to build a new au­di­ence, I'm mak­ing records be­cause there's a huge fan­base around the world that wants to hear new songs. "So why wouldn't I make al­bums? It's what I do. Why wouldn't I go up on stage? "I feel more at home on stage than just about any­where else. It's where I be­long. "If Sh­eryl and I go six months with­out a tour, we both get a lit­tle rest­less. And then in the mid­dle of the tour we're like, 'We can't wait for the tour to be over?' I don't have any de­sire to re­tire and I'm not go­ing to go fish­ing. What am I gonna do?"
