Alice Cooper Attributes his salvation from alcohol addiction to the very highest assistance. "It's a miracle, God helped me get dry," the 62-year-old told Cologne's "Express" on the weekend. By his own admission, he has "not touched a drink" in 29 years. Cooper paraphrased what going to church regularly on Sundays means to him as follows: "If you're a Christian, it's a one-to-one relationship between you and Jesus." Also Ringo Sta , former drummer of the band that claimed to be "bigger than Jesus" (the Vatican has since forgiven), the Beatles, recently confessed that faith had made a big impact on his life.

My father was a presbyter at church, and I used to sit in the back of the wooden pew on Sundays and just want it to go by. Nevertheless, the topic has never left me. Again and again in my life I have dealt with faith. The argument with it should never end in my opinion. For example, you can't just say 'I'm a Catholic' and then never seriously question that again throughout your life. Besides, it's never too late to get in or out of the discussion about religion. The option of using faith as a source of strength – I would advise everyone not to close the door on that so quickly."The U.S. country star, who died in 2003 Jonny Cash was also known as the "man in black" – and as a man of firm faith.
