The American singer and songwriter Alice Cooper reveals that her first drug experience was due to Jimi Hendrix‘s invitation. Alice Cooper appeared on the podcast show “The SDR Show,” and was asked about her first experience with drugs.
Weed was the first drug, and it was [with] Jimi Hendrix.
“I’m sitting there after the show. I went to see them. And we were just a little high school band. But they said, ‘Hey, come on up to the hotel room.’
“And we were sitting on his bed, and Jimi goes, ‘Here, man,’ [and he passed me the joint]. And I went, ‘Okay.’ And then he goes and puts a quarter in the bed – you know, the vibrating bed. There was, like, eight people sitting on the bed. And he goes, ‘We’re on a spaceship.’ And I went, ‘Okay.’”
Alice Cooper revealed the “worst drug experience.”
It was Detroit, and I think it was crystal THC. It was, like, four in the morning. I regained consciousness. And I thought it [was] a Jim Jones thing. And I got up. I remember it was about 20 degrees below outside. And I walked outside just in my shirt on, just to wake up. And when I came back in, everybody was just kind of coming up.”
“It was weird; it was like a [Federico] Fellini thing. It was so strange that I really did believe that everybody was dead, and I was the only one that survived it.”
