In a recent interview with Lazer 103.3, Alice Cooper’s solo guitarist Nita Strauss has shared what he learned from Alice. She said:
“I would say that the biggest lesson that I took away from Alice is… to be appreciative of other things you have.
Of course, we’re all appreciative of the opportunities that we have in life and the people that helped our get there. But Alice takes it to a whole new level, with how appreciative he is with his fans and how he takes time for everybody.
Getting to see someone do it on the level that he does, being Alice Cooper for 50 years now, it is inspiring to all of us in the band with him.”
“When you make music, are you more of a planner or do you create more instinctually?”
“It’s very spontaneous. It’s a very, very spontaneous process. And now that I look back on it, if there’s something I would do differently the next time it will probably be to plan out the directions and everything a little more.
“Because this time I was just like, ‘Today, I’m gonna write a song like this,’ the next day – something else. Maybe the next time around I will kind of map it out beforehand and make it a little bit more cohesive.”
