Mark Lawson talks to Alice Cooper, dubbed the 'world's most beloved heavy metal entertainer', about his life and 45-year career. In this fascinating interview Alice shares his memories of his Detroit childhood, the perils of addiction and his desire for the Alice persona to remain a 'true American character' that will live on beyond his own lifetime.

Cooper made his name in a 1967 group called The Nazz before unleashing the surreal, shock rock world of Alice Cooper to legions of fans. Famed for his darkly comic theatrics, Cooper has gone on to record 30 albums and has been nominated for three Grammy awards. In recent years he has moved effortlessly from performing on stage to screen, including acting roles in Freddy's Dead and the Tim Burton film Dark Shadows.
