In light of his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the NPR has a brief interview with Alice Cooper:

The band kept building its image, staging theatrical concerts, which generally involved the character of Alice being executed, via hanging, electrocution or a guillotine. Once, he brought a live boa constrictor on stage. Rumors circulated that he bit the heads off of chickens, but Cooper insists they were just that: urban myths. Nevertheless, when Zappa got wind of the stories, he asked Cooper if they were true. Cooper denied them, to which Zappa responded, “Don’t tell anyone else that,” Cooper says.

I’m thrilled beyond words that Cooper is being inducted. Beyond. Words.
