Strangely enough, this time away allowed Cooper, who became a born-again Christian and eventually discovered an obsession with golf, to recover.
His music, however, didn't exactly bounce back. Two records, Special Forces (1981) and Zipper Catches Skin (1982), proved especially disappointing. But in 1989, Cooper returned to the charts with the popular album Trash.
Since then, Cooper has enjoyed a range of success,
both in the studio and elsewhere. His film credits include Wayne's World (1992), among others. In 2004 he launched his hugely successful syndicated radio program, Nights With Alice Cooper.
In recent years he has reunited with the living members of his old band, and in 2011 the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
