Alice Cooper discussed his experience of contracting Covid-19 in a new interview on the TV show Good Day Rochester.
Speaking to Executive Producer Mike DiGiorgio, Cooper said ” “All it really did with me was it knocked me out. For three weeks, I felt like I went 12 rounds with [boxing legend] Roberto Duran; I was just beat up. And then every day, you feel a little bit better, then you feel a little bit better, feel a little bit better, and after about a month, you start feeling pretty good. And so now I’m a walking antibody.”

Blabbermouth.net, who transcribed the interview, also noted other mentions of the experience that Alice Cooper shared in other interviews:

“In a separate chat with Good Day Sacramento, the 73-year-old rocker offered an update on his health, saying: ‘I’m fine now. I got my both shots, and everything’s back to normal again. I certainly didn’t have to go to the hospital or anything like that. But it did wear you out. It’s not fun at all. So get your shots out there; go get your vaccinations.’

Earlier in the month, Cooper told the Arizona Republic that he and his wife ‘were wiped out’ after contracting the novel coronavirus. ‘I lost 15 pounds,’ he said. ‘I couldn’t sleep. I couldn’t eat. Now, I’m feeling pretty good. I’m feeling like I’m at least 95%.'”

Cooper, who has a very strong phobia of needles, got his jabs – along with his wife – in their hometown of Phoenix, Arizona.
He appeared on the show to discuss a number of things, including the various projects he has been working on. These include promoting his latest album, Detroit Stories, his 21st solo album, with the record acting as a tribute to his birthplace.

Elsewhere he will also host a livestream performance for Evanescence on 13th May, as well as mentoring the band that opens for them. There are three upcoming garage rock bands who are competing for the spot, having covered his classic Under My Wheels. You can see the three bands and vote for your favourite here
