Pressestimmen

“Alice writes like he golfs: straight and right down the middle. Like a lot of us golf addicts, he's spent his fair share of his life getting out of the rough and back onto the green. If you're like me and only read like a book a year (OK, like every decade), this should be the one.”

—John Daly

“What a blast from the past, and such insight to the future! Alice Cooper, Golf Monster shares Alice's personal life mission, interwoven with great stories and characters from the 60's through the present in Rock and Roll. Not to mention some wonderful golf tips and experiences, humorously presented. Thank you Alice, for a nice ride!”
—Michael Douglas, actor and creator of the Michael Douglas & Friends Charity Golf Tournament
“Few things are more surreal than playing golf with a guy named Alice. But by the time you reach the second tee, you realize that No More Mr. Nice Guy is one of the wittiest and engaging playing partners you've ever had. Plus, the guy can play! For those who aren't likely to experience the pleasure of a quiet, leisurely round with the man who spends his nights singing "School's been blown to pieces," this book provides the next best thing.”
—Steve Eubanks, author of Golf Freek
“Debauchery, demons and divots! This is the only book I've ever read that should come in 3-D; the crazy stories come right at you from Sinatra to KISS to the Moscow Golf Club.”
—Gary McCord, author of Golf for Dummies

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Alice Cooper zählt ohne Zweifel zu den Eindrucksvollsten und bedeutendsten Persönlichkeiten unserer Zeitgeschichte. Diese Biographie war demnach längst überfällig. Aber ich stelle es mir nicht einfach vor, 40 Jahre Schock-Rock-Geschichte auf ein paar hundert Seiten zu packen. Wie nicht anders zu erwarten ist es dem Meister mit Bravour gelungen. Hier kommt selbst der Die-Hard-Alice Cooper-Fan aus dem Staunen gar nicht mehr raus, ich meine wer kann schon von sich behaupten Salvador Dali, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, John Lennon, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin usw. gekannt und vor allem überlebt zu haben!? Auf seine lockere und humorvolle Art gibt der Coop in seinem Buch ein paar Anekdoten zum besten die es in sich haben.Zudem erfährt der Leser einiges über die Entstehung und Bedeutung der Großen und Kleinen Alice Cooper Hits und nach jedem Kapitel gibt's hilfreiche Tipps für alle Golf Monster oder die die es noch werden wollen. Dieses Buch muss man gelesen haben.

Nachdem wir gut drei Jahrzente keine Bio von Alice bekommen haben, muss ich sagen, ist diese ihm echt super gelungen. Leider ist diese nur in Englisch erschienen, aber trotzdem so geschrieben, dass jeder mit einfachen Kenntnissen, den Inhalt vesteht. Ebenso ist sie genauso locker geschrieben, wie Alice seine Radioshow abhält - also achtet auf Eure Lachmuskeln...

Inhaltlich finde ich, ist das Buch auch für jeden nicht Hardcore-Fan interessant, denn man erfährt doch einiges über den Mensch Alice Cooper. Und für jeden richtigen Hardcore-Fan sind es einige lustige Stunden mit einem super lustigen Buch. Denn ganz ehrlich, wir Hardcorefans wissen doch wirklich fast alles über "unseren" Alice und ich glaube kaum, dass wir gedacht haben, in diesem Buch soooo viel neues zu entdecken. Ausser natürlich die Golftipps, welche man auch aufs Leben beziehen kann, er schreibt z.B. vom perfekten komplizierten Schwung beim Golf und wenn man darauf achtet diesen durchzuführen gelingt er nicht, dass vergleicht er mit nem Lied schreiben, in Lieder die er besonders viel Energie reinsteckt, kommt kein Hit raus. Schreibt er ein Lied vielleicht innerhalb 10 Minuten hat er schon manchen Hit geschrieben....

So bevor ich jetzt noch mehr schreibe, lest dass Buch und ihr werdet begeistert sein!!!!

...werden die altbekannten Fakten nicht interessanter. Nichts neues von Cooper, alles mit etwas Puderzuckerguß aus Vergeßlichkeit, Schönfärberei und Nachsicht überzogen, dazu unnötige und belanglose Golf-Tipps - ein Buch nur für Hardcore-Sammler des Coop, die es ungelesen ins Regal stellen wollen. Ein paar altbekannte Fotos machen es nicht besser. Unangenehm hat mich berührt, wie der Altmeister verzweifelt versucht, seine Anbiederungsversuche an andere Showgrößen als "Freundschaft" mit diesen zu verkaufen - hey, Alice, das hast Du nicht nötig, Du bist auch so der Größte!

A man who has fought (and overcome) his addictions and personal demons. 19. Juli 2007
Von rnorton828 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Alice Cooper, the godfather of shock rock, has been on the music scene for nearly forty years. During that time, he has sold multiplatinum albums, toured the world, battled alcoholism and the rock star lifestyle in general, and become one of America's most respected celebrity golfers. And now, Alice has released Alice Cooper, Golf Monster, his autobiography, which is a most enjoyable read.

Cooper wrote Golf Monster collaborating with Keith and Kent Zimmerman, who also co-authored Sex Pistol Johnny Rotten's memoir. Alice Cooper, Golf Monster is a tell-all memoir that alternates between Cooper's life story and his own "twelve step program" for becoming a golf addict. Alice's sense of humor has been his trademark as a songwriter, and that humor is present throughout this book.

Golf Monster follows Cooper's life (born Vincent Damon Furnier in 1948) from his childhood in Detroit to his teenage years in Phoenix when he formed his first band, the Earwigs, through his forty-plus year musical career and his battle with the alcohol addiction that nearly destroyed his marriage and ended his life. Alice's close friendship with longtime manager Shep Gordon is also covered in this book.

Pop culture buffs will love this book, which is filled with anecdotes of Cooper's exploits with his many celebrity friends and acquaintances, from Frank Sinatra to Groucho Marx, Fred Astaire to Jack Benny, Salvador Dali to Peter Sellers. Many of Alice's colleagues from the rock music industry are here, including Paul McCartney, John Lennon, The Who, Elvis, Frank Zappa, Jim Morrison and Pink Floyd. Alice Cooper, Golf Monster is filled with lots of fascinating tales for readers to enjoy.

Alice writes about his relationship with his father, Ether Moroni Furnier, and the impact his dad has had upon his life. Although the elder Furnier was a minister, he always came out to the VIP Club on Friday nights to watch his son and his band play during their early days in Phoenix. Alice adds that while his father didn't condone his rocker lifestyle, he never had a problem with the music.

Cooper also writes about his conversion to Christianity, and he manages to do so in a manner that is quite interesting without being preachy. While he has talked openly about his faith over the years, he has also managed to avoid the trappings of "celebrity Christianity." Alice describes his walk with Christ as "an on-going, every-single-day kind of existence." Cooper recounts a conversation with his pastor during a time when Alice was struggling to reconcile his old image with his new faith. The minister told Cooper that while he lives in the world of "sex, drugs and rock n' roll," he was also a man who doesn't cheat on his wife, do drugs, or go to strip bars with the boys. The members of Alice's band, and his road crew see him reading his Bible and praying every night on his tour bus, and that quiet example speaks louder than any amount of preaching he could have done from the stage.

The book's title makes reference to Alice's new addiction, and the fact that he has replaced an unhealthy addiction (alcohol) with a healthy one (golf). Between the chapters of Cooper's life story are additional chapters laying out Alice's twelve steps to becoming a golf addict, for those who seriously want to dedicate themselves to the game. Cooper freely admits to having an addictive personality, and in addition to alcohol and golf, some of his other addictions have included horror movies, televisions (at one point, he had twenty-seven sets in his home), TV trivia, watches, shopping, and bad kung fu movies (he watches one before each show as part of his pre-concert ritual). The book's appendix is titled "Alice's Golf Clinic," in which Cooper offers golf tips for improving one's game.

Alice Cooper, Golf Monster is a thoroughly enjoyable read. This is the story of a man who has been to the pinnacle of his profession, conquered addiction and found redemption. I've been an Alice Cooper fan for many years, and I gladly recommend this book not only to other Alice fans, but also for golf enthusiasts.

Love it to Death 22. Januar 2008
Von JMack - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As much of an Alice Cooper fan as I am, I am somewhat ashamed that it took me so long to read this book. Based on the title, I originally thought it was more of a golf book. Golf tidbits are intermixed with anecdotes of a life in rock'n'roll. So even those like myself that know almost nothing of the sport will still love this book.

In the history of rock, few figures are as misunderstood as Alice Cooper. Often the victim of baseless rumors during the 70's, he still became one of music's most successful acts. "Golf Monster" chronicles the music, booze, golf in a way that is certain to make readers smile. I never really thought Alice had so many friends in the entertainmnet business! My only real complaint is that I would have liked a longer book with more discussion of the music and tours. Some of my favorite albums were hardly discussed.

I also really enjoyed reading about the "new" Alice Cooper. He is more than enough proof that Christians do not need to be boring. And even in his act, he does not compromise his faith in his on-stage "character". As Alice says, if you believe he errors in his faith, show him. Fans of Alice are certain to love this book, even if they don't like golf.

Alice-Lite 7. Mai 2007
Von Michael Thomas Roe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I've been following the Coop ever since my tender ears beheld "School's Out" on the radio in '73. I think it's safe to say it pretty much changed my life. After reading "Golf Monster", I'm convinced that no one will ever know the true story of Alice Cooper. There have been two previous "authorized" attempts: 1) Michael Bruce's "No More Mr. Nice Guy", wherein the original Alice Cooper guitarist/songwriter gives his side of "the story", which is sometimes different from the Coop's and 2) Alice Cooper's own "Me, Alice" (1976), which gives the reader quite the earful about Alice and band's pre-fame exploits, some of them dealing with sex-in-coffins and things-to-do-with-jelly-donuts. "Golf Monster" does very little to clear up the discrepencies in the aforementioned books and actually throws a little more fuel on the fire. However, it does succeed (and this is what makes the book worth reading) most when it picks up where "Me, Alice" left off. That is to describe the trails and tribulations of Alice, post-"Welcome To My Nighmare". But it must be pointed out that the stories have, over time, become sanitized. The tone and feel of "Golf Monster" is nigh on G-rated. It is darn near Sunday night, have the family over, and read around the fire material.

And more curious, in what is either a brilliant or lose-rock-n-roll-credibility move, Alice has decided to throw golf and religion in to the mix.

So, reader, read at your own peril. This is Alice's "story" as he sees fit to tell in the year 2007. It is rumoured that original Alice Cooper bassist Dennis Dunnaway (a nice guy if ever there were one) is going to present his memoirs. Maybe that will set the record straight. Maybe...

A Hole in One 9. Mai 2007
Von revinkevin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Wow. What a great read by the man who saw it all in the music industry from the 60's to now. Who would have thought that the master of shock rock, a loud and in your face rocker on the stage and in the studio, could be such an insightful,thoughtful and just plain fun individual. When the excess of the rock world started to destroy his personal life, he took up the game of golf and it saved his life and balanced out his world. He became a better person, a better rocker and a better golfer. The best part of this book is that you don't have to be a rocker or a golfer to enjoy this book. Just sit back and enjoy the ride with a guy named Alice on his journey in life.

Mr. Nice Guy 5. Mai 2007
Von C. Kolanko - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This combo autobiography and golf tips book was really fun to read. There are so many amazing, funny, and quirky stories about various rock stars, golfers, and others! Alice has crossed paths with nearly everyone of any fame or infamy on the planet. Characters like Zappa, Moon, and other rockers/musicians are, of course, mentioned. But there are interesting tidbits about Groucho Marx, Liberace, Salvadore Dali, Rachel Welsh, and President Ford. Lots of great photos are sprinkled throughout the book. The book is written in a very easy to read manner, with the golfing related information presented in a different font. Alice is a great golfer and acknowledged by many of the great pros in the game. It's a wonderful life lesson that he has replaced his bad addictions with this golf addiction. It's equally fascinating that the man offstage is kind, normal, and good, while the Alice onstage today is still as wacky and evil as he ever was. Great showman, wonderful golfer, and just a darned nice "Mr. Nice Guy".
