Later, Alice Cooper stated that he was not singing or performing during his recovery process. According to the shock-rocker, it was very hard to breathe or perform. But even so, he expressed that he felt better day by day.

“Every day you feel two percent better,” Cooper said. “Then you get a little bit better, the next day a little bit better, until finally, you’re going, ‘Oh, wait a minute, I feel almost normal now.’ But it does take it out of you. I mean, it’s like pneumonia. It takes a while to get your sea legs back under you.”

Nowadays, although the virus has taken 15 pounds from him, Alice Cooper has been looking so excited for his career. The 73-year-old musician has added a new solo album to his career on February 27, 2021, titled “Detroit Stories.”
