    Just a couple segments from an apparently very extensive interview. Here are the links:

    I thought the last answer was particularly interesting:

    "Well, it does make a point. I think that people . . . now that people know I am Christian and now that people know that I am a dad and a father, the Alice character is a character that I play. The same way that if I were playing Dracula or if I was playing The Joker, or if I was playing Ming The Merciless or any of these characters... It's a character that I play on stage, and when I leave the stage, he stays there. I go home and, you know, take the kids to the basketball game and take my little girl to ballet class. I always tell people, 'I'm Fred McMurray offstage and Bela Ligosi onstage.'"

    I love seeing a Rock and Roll Relic speak out for what was roumored all along.

    If I'm not mistaken Alice Cooper (Fred McMurry) is the son of a Baptist Minister.

    "Alice Cooper" is Vincent Furnier, not Fred McMurray. I didn't get the reference, so did a web search and think this would be the one he meant: LINK

    I just read through the lyrics of a few of his newer songs on www, some of them are a vast improvement over his old stuff. I pray some will start thinking when they hear them.

    I believe he is referring to Fred MacMurray who was the father on "My Three Sons", implying that this is the 'character' he emulates in his private family life.
