Alice Cooper has publicly stated that all the rock stars campaigning for Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry are guilty of treason. Alice, a staunch Republican, expressed disgust at plans by Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp, R.E.M. and other bands to hold a series of concerts aimed at unseating U.S. President George W. Bush. Alice argues that these artisist are committing treasons against rock becuse rock should never be involved in politics.
Cooper said, "If you're listening to a rock star in order to get your information on who to vote for, you're a bigger moron than they are. Why are we rock stars? Because we're morons. We sleep all day, we play music at night and very rarely do we sit around reading the Washington Journal."
Despite his strong insistence that rock has no place in politics, Cooper has proclaimed support for Bush.
