I remember seeing Alice on the old Phil Donahue show. He recounted the story about a feud he was having with John Denver, and how Denver said he and his music would be around longer than Cooper, long enough for Denver to piss on his grave. So Cooper sent Denver a bunch of flowers and a specimen cup.
All these years later, turns out Denver wasn't such a straight guy and Cooper is the one who stayed married, cleaned up his act and now regularly plays golf...ewww! Just like your dad!
I like the irony.
