Later, Alice Cooper continued to remembering one of the bizarre and scary moments he ever lived. He said that they went into the kitchen and he pointed a loaded gun at Elvis Presley.
“We went up [to the room] and he searches for guns, which was kind of silly, because there were guns everywhere once you got in,” Cooper says.
“When he came in the room, he was Elvis. He wasn’t the fat Elvis – he was [just the] Elvis. He was the guy.
“He goes, ‘Hey man, You’re that cat with the snake, ain’t ya?’ I said, ‘Yeah.’ He said, ‘That’s cool, man. I wish I woulda thoughta that.
“He said, ‘I wanna show you something.’ We go in the kitchen [and] he opens the drawer, takes out a loaded .38, snub nose .38, puts it in my hand and he says, ‘I’m gonna show you how to take this gun outta somebody’s hand.”

Concluding his words, Alice made a joke about the situation they were in and stated that the devil on his right shoulder said to him that “shoot him.” Also, he touched the movement when he pointed the gun at Elvis and expressed his surprise.
“The little devil here on my shoulder says, ‘Shoot him.’ The little angel over here says, ‘Don’t kill him. Just wound him,’ remembers Alice.
“Before I could decide what to do, I was on the floor. And he had his boot on my throat. And I’m going, ‘Argh! That’s good, Elvis.’
“He was an amazing character. Very funny guy. But he was Elvis.”
