Recalling those days, Alice Cooper stated that COVID-19 knocked him out during the process. He also gave an example about the virus’s effect on his body and stated that it was like he boxed with the boxing legend, Roberto Duran.

“My wife and I had it at the same time, at Christmas and right at Christmas,” Alice said. “All it really did with me was it knocked me out. For three weeks, I felt like I went 12 rounds with Roberto Duran; I was just beat up.”

Later, Alice mentioned the recovery process and said it felt good day to day.

“And then every day, you feel a little bit better, then you feel a little bit better, feel a little bit better, and after about a month, you start feeling pretty good. And so now I’m a walking antibody.”
