Alice talks about his appearance on 'The Muppet Show' at Ultimate Guitar

""It was the most fun thing I ever did. First of all, you spend a week in London, and you're working, again, with Hanson and all the originals.


"The amazing thing is this - when they offered it to me, it was the No. 1 show in the world, and I had just established myself as America's villain-ghoul kind of character.

"And it was, 'Oh, man, I want to do this show, but I don't want to water down Alice Cooper, the character... Who was on the show recently?' They said, 'Christopher Lee, Vincent Price...'

"I said, 'I'm in!' Because if those two guys can be on that show, I can be on that show - I don't measure up to them.


"So, doing the show after about three days of rehearsal, you are talking to the Muppets like they're people, and you don't even realize it.

"I'm telling Miss Piggy, 'Hey, it would be a great idea if you put your head on my shoulder during this thing.' 'Oh, good idea, let's do that.'

"You're literally talking to them, and they're responding, and you're buying into it, you totally buy into the world of the Muppets because when they're doing the rehearsals and all this.

"They keep it going through the whole thing, and I honestly had the most fun ever during that show.

"And on my birthday, every birthday I get a little porcelain Muppet, and that was from 1978, '77, I still get the porcelain Muppets."


"So well-written, it was so well-written. Very, very funny. Kids could love it, but adults, of course, I played the Faust character, trying to get Kermit to sell his soul, and it was hysterical.

"The writing was terrific on it, and we spent most of our time laughing, just trying to keep a straight face while we're doing this.

"So yeah, I'm a huge Muppet fan, and I was so glad to see it's back on. To me, I just went, 'Oh, this is great!'""

New book - 'Where's Alice Cooper' available from Amazon UK


"For more than 50 years, Alice Cooper has surprised fans with his rule-breaking, genre-defining, horror-filled theatrical performances. Now, Alice Cooper fans can bring a little of the band's vaudeville-infused magic home with them with Where Is Alice Cooper?, an official, fully-authorised seek-and-find book featuring the king of hard rock.


With 14 double-page puzzles inspired by Alice Cooper's iconic albums - including Welcome to My Nightmare, Billion Dollar Babies, and Hey Stoopid - Where Is Alice Cooper? pays proper homage to the classic style expected from the architect of shock-rock.


Say hello to Alice Cooper's nightmare with these vibrant, whimsical scenes that bring the band's celebrated horror aesthetic to life. Crafted by the same creative minds who brought you the critically acclaimed seek-and-find book Motorhead: Where is Lemmy? and the fan-favorite graphic novel RUSH: The Making of a Farewell to Kings, Where Is Alice Cooper? is the perfect addition to every Alice Cooper fan's collection."
