The rock legend also gave tips on the key to a lengthy marriage, fans who cover themselves with Alice tattoos and why rock ‘n’ roll is crying out for a “shot of testosterone”.
Having played onstage with movie star Johnny, the Poison star said: “Johnny came to Hollywood to play guitar. He didn’t come as an actor at all.
“I always say to him, ‘If you really want to go out on tour, let me know and you can come with us.’ I wouldn’t be surprised if he did.”
Alice also revealed contemporary rock is in a bad state, urging aspiring artists: “Don’t get into wimp rock. Be a rock star. Listen to Iggy And The Stooges, early Who, early Rolling Stones.
“Bands are so timid. Every time I see a new band I go, ‘Why are you so afraid to be a rock star?’
“Be an obnoxious rock ‘n’ roller. Get rid of your corduroys.”
Alice has been married to wife Sheryl for 36 years – a rarity in rock ‘n’ roll, as the singer admits.
Asked what tips he has for a long and happy marriage, he replied: “Marry the person you’re in love with. It’s that simple.
“You never do anything to hurt the person you love. And, guys, remember, romance is always more important than sex.”
Last year saw Alice release his 19th solo studio album Welcome 2 My Nightmare — the long-awaited follow-up to his 1975 concept collection Welcome To My Nightmare.
He was also inducted into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, alongside the original Alice Cooper band.
The singer adopted his band’s name and went solo in 1975, scoring his biggest hit in 1987 with Poison.
