Description

Alice Cooper is hotter than ever, still playing up to 100 gigs a year with his band, watching his audiences grow younger. But 300 days a year, he is out on the golf course. That's because Alice credits golf as helping him overcome a self-destructive spiral into alcoholism. It's also because Alice turned out to be almost as good a golfer as he is a rocker. This book blends a rocker's uproarious tales of excess with a no holds-barred account of how Cooper substituted alcohol addiction with the lesser evil of hitting a little white ball. Alice Cooper is rock'n'roll's original misanthrope, the ultimate shock-rock, heavy-metal bad boy. With golf, as in music, he was way ahead of the cultural curve, his passion for the game predating golf's popularity surge among younger folks, hip professional athletes, and indeed Alice's music contemporaries, including Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Iggy Pop and Roger Waters. The nearest Alice Cooper has come to writing his autobiography. He is still a major rock touring artist. This title includes the story of his musical career and of his rehabilitation. It is a fascinating self-help programme by an unlikely role model. It is the first and best of the rock'n'roll golfers.

Author Biography

Golf Monster is the perfect book for all those ageing hippies who grew up on Alice Cooper; for all those ageing hippies who now play golf too; for fans of rock autobiographies, recovery memoirs, and funny golf books.
