Alice Cooper, the infamous theatrical rock star, real name Vincent Furnier,
was suffering with depression and life-threatening alcohol addiction at the
height of his success, when he was drinking well over a bottle of whiskey a
day. This comic depicting Alice being committed to hospital was published in
1979 by Marvel Comics to coincide with Alice's album ‘From the Inside’. It
was co-written with Elton John's well-known lyricist Bernie Taupin. It
describes when Alice Cooper voluntarily incarcerated himself into Cornell
Medical Centre in White Plains, New York.
