Alice Cooper Says Lemmy Would’ve Been Hollywood Vampires’ Bassist
As if we needed another reason to miss Lemmy Kilmister.
The legendary frontman came up during a recent interview Alice Cooper had with Kerrang! where he said, “If he were alive, Lemmy would certainly be a Vampire. He’d probably be our bass player! All of us knew Lemmy, on different levels, because he played with us so many times – everyone in the band had done tours with Lemmy. He was sort of a journeyman.”
Cooper continued by recalling a very Lemmy story. “I quit drinking 37 years ago, but he came to me once and said, ‘Alice. I quit drinking’,” said Cooper. “And he had a drink in his hand! I was sitting there going, ‘That’s great – and that must be Coca-Cola?’ He said, ‘No, there’s a little whiskey in there.’ His idea of not drinking was not drinking a bottle of whiskey each night. Maybe just five or six drinks.”
While that’s a great Lemmy story, it still doesn’t hold a candle to how he said he switched from whiskey to vodka for health reasons. Seriously, Lemmy is just so incredibly missed.
