In 1991, Cooper made an appearance as himself in Wayne’s World. Along with that, he played Freddie Kreuger’s step-father in Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare.

He appeared on Gene Wilder’s television series, Something Wilder, along with hits like That 70s Show, and The Hollywood Squares. In 2017, the rocker released his album Paranormal.

In an interview with AZ Central, Cooper spoke about the album, saying, “I accidentally wrote a concept album. I write all the lyrics, right? And I said, ‘All these people have some kind of paranormal problem. They’re not spinning in a normal direction.’ Then I started thinking, ‘Well, what’s normal?’ I don’t know one normal person. I don’t care how much they might come off as being normal. There’s always one or two things about them that makes you go ‘What?’ But that’s what makes them interesting, those quirks.”

Cooper’s barbeque restaurant Cooper’s Town was opened in 1998 in his hometown city of Phoenix, Arizona. According to The Daily Meal, appetizers at his restaurant include quesadillas, pork green chile nachos, and BBQ sliders. Cooper’s Town is also famous for their massive Big Unit hot dogs.

Along with owning a restaurant, Cooper is a car lover and collector; his father, in fact, sold cars. According to a 2012 article in Highline Autos, he’s been fascinated by automobiles since he was a young boy, growing up in Detroit. “Horsepower and muscle cars are in my DNA,” he tells the outlet.

Highline Autos reports that Cooper’s first car was a yellow 1966 Ford Fairline GT. Today, he owns a number of cars. What’s he looking for? “It’s already vintage because of its age,” he says. “What I want is for a car to be high tech and I want it to be driveable every day. I don’t build them to put them in the living room.” Some of the cars he owns include a 1966 Mustang Fastback and a 1998 Aston Martin DB7.

Alice Cooper – King Herod's songIn 1996, Alice recorded a version of 'King Herods Song' for Andrew Lloyd Webber's new version of 'Jesus Christ Superstar' Lyrics: Jesus I am overjoyed to meet you face to face. You've been getting quite a name all around the place. Healing cripples, raising from the dead. And now I understand you're God, at least that's what you've said. (Here it goes from ballad to vaudvillian bop- MC) So you are the Christ, you're the great Jesus Christ. Prove to me that you're divine- change my water into wine. That's all you need to do and I'll know it's all true. C'mon King of the Jews. Jesus you just won't believe the hit you've made around here. You are all we talk about, the wonder of the year. Oh what a pity if it's all a lie. Still I'm sure that you can rock the cynics if you try. So you are the Christ, you're the great Jesus Christ. Prove to me that you're no fool- walk across my swimming pool. If you do that for me then I'll let you go free. C'mon King of the Jews. I only ask things I'd ask any superstar. What is it that you have got that puts you where you are? I am waiting, yes I'm a captive fan. I am dying to be shown that you are not just any man. So if you are the Christ yes the great Jesus Christ feed my household with this bread- you can do it on your head. Or has something gone wrong? Why do you take so long? C'mon King of the Jews. Hey! Aren't you scared of me Christ? Mr. Wonderful Christ! You're a joke. You're not the Lord- you are nothing but a fraud. Take him away- he's got nothing to say! Get out you King of the Jews! Get out of my life!2009-11-09T15:38:32.000Z

Beginning in 1997, Cooper began hosting the annual Alice Cooper Celebrity AM Golf Tournament. According to The Highline, all the company’s proceeds go to the Solid Rock Foundation which “has helped thousands of troubled teens through music, dance, arts, sports and other recreation.”

A 2007 piece in The Telegraph reads, “After a spell in a sanatorium near New York, in a lock-down ward with drug addicts, criminals and the mentally disturbed, [Cooper] began to recover. In the same way that many people in times of need turn to God, Cooper turned to golf. Today, he tries to play 36 holes a day and has a handicap of seven.” In 2007, he released the book, Alice Cooper, Golf Monster. His other books include Regret, and Poems of Love and Reflection, among others.

Always giving back to the community, he and his wife, Sheryl, also host a Christmas Pudding Concert. Alice tells The Highline, “We want to give those kids another opportunity that they might not have had. We just want to help them find better paths than the ones they have been given.”
