Alice Cooper, Golf Monster
A Rock 'n' Roller's 12 Steps to Becoming A Golf AddictBook - 2007 | 1st ed
"The man who invented shock rock tells the amazing and, yeah, shocking story of how he slayed his thirsty demons - with a golf club. It started one day when Cooper was watching a Star Trek rerun between concerts, bored and drunk on a quart-of-whiskey-a-day habit; a friend dragged the rocker out of his room and suggested a round of golf. Cooper has been a self-confessed golf addict ever since. Today he and his band still tour the world, playing some one hundred gigs a year...and three hundred days out of that year, Cooper is on the course." "Alice Cooper, Golf Monster is Cooper's tell-all memoir; in it he talks candidly about his entire life and career, as well as his struggles with alcohol, how he fell in love with the game of golf, how he dried out at a sanitarium back in the late '70s, and how he put the last nails in his addiction's coffin by getting up daily at 7 A.M. to play 36 holes." "This is the story of Cooper's life, and also a story about golf. He rose from hacker to scratch golfer to serious Pro Am competitor and on to his status today as one of the best celebrity golfers around-all while rising through the rock 'n' roll ranks releasing platinum albums and selling out arenas with his legendary act."--BOOK JACKET.
