Current bid is $1,600. "Alice Cooper, Golf Monster: A Rock 'N'Roller's 12 Steps To Becoming A Golf Addict" is a pull-no-punches account of Alice's life, and it deals candidly with his alcohol problem, which almost ruined him at the height of his fame in the '70s. Alice told Launch that the book shows how the move from one addiction — in this case, drinking — to another — playing golf almost every day —worked out to his advantage. "'Alice Cooper, Golf Monster' is a story about how Alice became Alice, almost destroyed himself with alcohol, and then got a new life through golf," he said. "And continued the entire rock life — you know, I mean, I still do concerts, I still do everything — without the alcohol. And golf ended up being a good trade-off — I traded one bad habit for another habit, only this habit was a lot healthier." Billboard.com recently reported that Alice Cooper has put off recording his next album, a conceptual piece about a serial killer called "Along Came a Spider", until 2008 but says it could turn into a two-CD set. "That would be great; I've never done one," Cooper said. "We wrote 20 songs thinking we were going to get this album recorded before this tour. We just ran out of time. But since we have five months on the road we'll probably write another 10 songs. I'd like to put out 30 brand new songs on one album."
