Shock rocker, Alice Cooper has shared a tale from his first drug experience. He’s recalled the story on a podcast, sharing that it was with eight other people, one being Jimi Hendrix, and it was on a vibrating bed.
Talking with Ralph Sutton and Big Jay Oakerson from The SDR Show podcast, Cooper was asked about his first drug experience.
“Weed was the first drug,” answers Alice Cooper.
“And it was [with] Jimi Hendrix. I’m sitting there after the show. I went to see them. And we were just a little high school band.
“But they said, ‘Hey, come on up to the hotel room.’”
“And we were sitting on his bed, and Jimi goes, ‘Here, man [laughs],’ and he passed me the joint.
“And I went, ‘Okay.’ And then he goes and puts a quarter in the bed — you know, the vibrating bed. There was, like, eight people sitting on the bed. And he goes, ‘We’re on a spaceship.’ And I went, ‘Okay.’”
One podcast host said what we’re all thinking: weed couldn’t be the only drug involved in that experience.
“Oh no, yeah. He was f—, yeah,” replies Cooper.
“I read a thing once, where he says, ‘I only did LSD three times.’ I went, ‘Okaay.'”
He also shared his worst drug experience.
“It was Detroit, and I think it was crystal THC,” he said.
“It was, like, four in the morning. I regained consciousness. And I thought it [was] a Jim Jones thing. And I got up.
“I remember it was about 20 degrees below outside. And I walked outside just in my shirt on, just to wake up. And when I came back in, everybody was just kind of coming up.”
“It was weird; it was like a [Federico] Fellini thing. It was so strange that I really did believe that everybody was dead, and I was the only one that survived it.”
