Fortunately Cooper is alright after his scare, as we have lost many rock legends in recent years.
A few months ago in an interview with Meltdown Of Detroit’s WRIF radio station, Alice Cooper was asked for his opinion on the death of Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington, just two months after the suicide of Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell. He also discussed Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland’s death.
“I worked with Chris Cornell, I wrote a couple of songs with Chris for ‘The Last Temptation’ album,” Alice said. “And I just went, ‘This guy has got the whole package.’ I’d never seen anybody that had the package as much as he did, when it comes to just talent, guitar playing, singing, songwriting, charisma… the whole thing. So I was unbelievably shocked by that one. I didn’t get that one. I didn’t understand that one at all. A suicide on that level, I went, ‘Why?’ I’m like everybody else, going, ‘Why?’ And then Chester Bennington, same thing. Chester is one of those guys I played golf with… well, I was teaching him golf. And we talked about music the whole time.
And he was in two bands at the same time — Linkin Park and I think [Stone Temple Pilots] he was in. [He had] great kids, great family, no financial problems and then all of a sudden he’s dead. And you go, ‘Why? What is going on?’ I don’t get it at all. I really don’t get it. I’ve never had any kind of depression, so I can’t speak for that. I don’t think it was drugs, I don’t think it was any of that. I think it was just a matter of maybe clinical depression.”
Adding that “you couldn’t find two people with more potential than those two guys,” Cooper said that “it was kind of the same thing with Scott Weiland,” referring to the former Stone Temple Pilots singer who died in December 2015 of an accidental drug overdose. “That guy had the whole package also, and yet decided that heroin was more important than that. But these guys, I don’t really think their thing was a drug problem. I think it was more of a physical problem. I think it had something to do with clinical depression.”
