Tonight, Alice Cooper will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. So how does the shock rocker feel about the upcoming honor? He told us, relieved!

“The great relief is that I don’t have to answer that question anymore of ‘How come you’re not in the Hall of Fame?’ And I sit there and I don’t have an answer for you, honestly, I don’t do the nominating, I don’t do the voting, until I get into the Hall of Fame I will never know what secret rite it is to get in there. Now I can say, ‘Okay, I’m in, everybody relax, okay.’”

Alice will be inducted alongside the likes of Tom Waits, Neil Diamond, Darlene Love and Dr. John tonight at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City. Read more about the induction process at
