Tours are cancelled, festivals called off, and people have been asked to distance socially and self-isolate. While things might sound terrible right now, Alice Cooper would like you to put on a happy face.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, the shock rocker offers a message of hope to the world, noting, "We're all in this together."
"Whether you're entertainer or fan, rich or poor, male or female, old or young. And we'll get through this together. And when we do, we'll be back on the road, doing what we love to do," he tells the magazine over email.
Cooper also asks his fans to support bands with a smaller following than his own, as they're likely taking a financial hit by not playing out live.
Meanwhile, Alice Cooper is putting the final touches on his new album.
Alice Cooper is using the extra time he gained from cancelling his North American tour to put the wraps on his next studio album.
The veteran rocker tells Rolling Stone that being able to take his time in the studio is a luxury he normally doesn't get to enjoy. "At least now I won’t be squeezing in vocal recording sessions on days off, between shows," he says. "I don't like a lot of time off, as anyone who sees my schedule already knows, but a little extra time at home can be re-energizing."
The as-yet-untitled album will follow "Breadcrumbs," a six-track EP Cooper released last September.
