Alice Cooper Recalls Getting First Joint From Jimi Hendrix

In a recent appearance on “The SDR Show,” rock star Alice Cooper shared his first, best, and worst experiences with drugs of all kinds.

The 73-year-old singer, who has maintained sobriety for nearly 4 decades, revealed that it was Jimi Hendrix who handed him his first-ever joint.

“I’m sitting there after the show. I went to see them. We were just a little high school band, but they said, ‘Hey, come on up to the hotel room,'” he recalled. “And we were sitting on his bed, and Jimi goes, ‘Here, man’ [with a joint], and I went, ‘Okay.'”

Cooper went onto add that Hendrix was visibly out of it, as he put a quarter in the vibrating bed and exclaimed, “‘We’re on a spaceship!’ And I went, ‘Okay.'”
