“The best things in life don’t make sense.”

“It doesn’t matter how many drugs I take, I’m not fulfilled.  This isn’t satisfying.  There’s a spiritual hunger going on.  Everybody feels it.  If you don’t feel it now, you will.  Trust me.  You will.  Drinking beer is easy.  Trashing your hotel room is easy.  But being a Christian, that’s a tough call.  That’s the real rebellion.”

“There was a period of time when I thought I had to be Alice Cooper all the time.”

“On stage, I’m this figure, this actor, who does things that people aren’t used to seeing and I relish in that reaction.  In real life, though, I play golf, I shop and I walk around with no makeup on and my hair in a ponytail.  I may not be the typical middle-aged Joe, but I’m closer to normal than you think.”

“I came into this life, looked all around.  I saw just what I liked and took what I found.”

“My mother lives with me.  She’s a tiger… and is my biggest fan.  If you say anything bad about Alice Cooper, she’ll be on top of you.  I was lucky to get the parents I did.”

“I’m still Vince to my mom.  She lives with us and she says, ‘Hey superstar, take out the garbage!’  I didn’t become a star to her until I brought home a picture of me with Frank Sinatra.  She said then, ‘Okay, now you’re something.'”

“The two most joyous times of the year are Christmas morning and the end of school.  School’s out for summer!”

“No more Mr. Nice Guy.”

“God’s chipping away at your life all the time to try to make you more like Him.  That’s what a Christian is, a person that’s being molded and shaped all their life.  I think the Lord expects you to do your best in His name.  I had to struggle a long time about rock and roll.  I realized it’s not really the music.  It’s what’s being said with the music.  So I think you have to be careful of what you’re writing, what you’re representing.”

“What people don’t realize is that when you become a Christian it doesn’t make things easier, it makes them harder.  It makes your life harder.  It makes your soul at ease with God because you know where you are with Him.  It doesn’t make your social life or your normal life in America any easier.  In fact, it puts you under the microscope.”

“The very fact that He cared enough about me to save my life about 20 times, and helped me survive a million different things, to put me where I am now, and the challenge I have now is to be a Christian in the rock business.”

“When you get out there and realize you’ve had every car, every house, and all that, you realize that that’s not the answer.  There’s a big nothing out there at the end of that.  So, materialism doesn’t mean anything.  A lot of people say that there’s a big God-sized hole in your heart.  And when that’s filled, you’re really satisfied, and that’s where I am right now.”

“We’ve done it all.  Everything that we’ve set out to do we’ve accomplished.  For us, it’s like, let’s just go out like this and leave everything intact… and go out on a super high note so there are no regrets.”

“Why be boring?  Have some fun.”
