Alice Cooper on all the losses in the music industry this year

It's been a hard couple of years in the music industry.

Last year Prince and David Bowie died and this year we've lost Tom Petty, Chris Cornell and Linkin Park's Chester Bennington.

Alice said some of the deaths in the music industry aren't surprising due to the Rock and Roll lifestyle but he was shocked to lose a few good friends this year.

"Some of them I was really surprised about. Chris Cornell and I were pretty good friends and Bennington was a good friend of mine too. I was very surprised at Prince."

He also commented on the recent death of Tom Petty saying he was really shocked when he heard about Tom's death.

Tom Petty, that was another shocker.

"I mean Tom's not overweight, he's not a heavy drinker, he's not a heavy smoker but a lot of it's hereditary."
