Alice Cooper, who sang School’s out forever is back in the headlines. The man who once overworked himself so much that blood was leaking from his eyeballs is now well into his senior years – but he is still rocking. The man with the eye makeup has publicly stated in recent days that he witnessed Jeff Beck on stage accompanied by the former actor, Johnny Depp. Let’s find out more about his experience.
As per Fox News, Alice Cooper shared his thoughts on the passing of Jeff Beck, just one day after his funeral was held in London.
“I was so sorry to see Jeff Beck go,” the musician told Fox News Digital at Clive Davis’ Pre-Grammy Gala. “Jeff Beck was my favorite guitar player of all time. And I’d just seen him two weeks before this happened.”
The 78-year-old British rockstar died after contracting a brief illness.
“After suddenly contracting bacterial meningitis, he peacefully passed away yesterday. His family ask for privacy while they process this tremendous loss,” a representative told Fox News Digital on Jan. 11.
“I mean, that was a surprise to me,” Cooper reiterated.
The last time Alice saw him was in concert, playing with former actor, Johnny Depp.
A source close to Depp confirmed to Fox News Digital that he “was by Jeff’s bedside” along with “some other rock stars” before his death.
“They were playing in Phoenix. And he was great. I mean, I didn’t see – I didn’t notice anything at all. It must have happened very quickly,” Cooper shared of the last time he saw Beck.
