Fridays With Alice... ARCHIVE

Posts from The Past

“Fridays with Alice” is a blog that looks at God’s Word from a fresh, new perspective. It is a scripture-based endeavor. One that will take the songs and interviews of Alice Cooper and apply them to what God says about who we are in Him and who He wants us to be. We celebrate in knowing Alice as a Brother in Christ and are excited to share with you this project called, “Fridays with Alice… The Gospel according to Alice Cooper”.

Once again, this ‘Nightmare’ is a concept album, like the first.  Once again, Steven’s nightmares take us on a journey. This time ones that depict Hell and some tongue-in-cheek examples of the horrible things that can be found there…

In this interview, Life Focus Ministries sits down with Alice and Sheryl Cooper along with their family to discuss the value of Christian upbringing, prayer, and other relevant topics.

Your Own Worst Enemy (Dirty Diamonds, 2005)

The song “Your Own Worst Enemy” from “Dirty Diamonds” is this week’s focus. “Diamonds” is Cooper’s 24th studio album and was released in 2005.  The album is a back to the basics Rock album.  It has no theme per se.  Some songs that we will most likely revisit from the album include: “Perfect”, “The Saga of Jesse Jane”…

It’s Much Too Late (Dragontown, 2001)

This Week’s Song, “It’s Much Too Late” from “Dragontown,” Cooper’s 22nd studio album – released in 2001.  The album is a continuation of the themes found on the previous album, Brutal Planet.  The nature of this world is really no different than it’s ever been in the past, but this album deals with the current events and state of affairs that have led us to an over-hyped hate…

Brutal Planet (Brutal Planet, 2000)

Brutal Planet (Brutal Planet, 2000)

‘Brutal Planet‘ was released in 2000.  It is one of Cooper’s darker albums – focusing on the demise and destruction of humanity.  Very much like the red pill and blue pill in the Matrix.  This album focuses on what life looks like when God and His plan are left out of the equation.   The product of such an equation is a burning wasteland ruled…

The Harvest Show Interview – Surprise, Alice Cooper Is A Christian! (2009)

In this interview, ‘The Harvest Show’ sits down with Alice to discuss his past, present, faith, etc. It’s not a very long video but covers quite a bit in a little over 7 minutes.  As I took notes, I was actually surprised to find many talking points from only 7 minutes (given the last interview with Alice and Sheryl was close to 30).  One talking point which…
