Lzzy Hale Says Alice Cooper Was Proud To Help Her Discover Her ‘Weirdness’

Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale recently gave an interview to 955KLOS and revealed her memory of Alice Cooper. Hale shared that Alice Cooper felt proud as he helped the Halestorm vocalist discover her ‘weird’ side.

Lzzy Hale, especially as the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist of Halestorm, has made a significant impact on the music scene. Her collaborations with other notable bands like Stone Sour, Seether, and Shinedown helped her to climb the ladder of success.

In time, Hale has become a colossal influence, primarily on young females, with her many achievements in the music scene. The vocalist became the first female Gibson Ambassador in the previous year. It was a significant event not only for her but also for the other female rockers.

She has become one of the inspirational female musicians like Joan Jett and Janis Joplin, who have changed the direction of rock music, which has been male-oriented. Hale has opened a new gate to the young female generation and showed them not to give up on their dreams.

Before she gained this massive success, Lzzy Hale had important names that influenced her in childhood, as every musician had. The frontwoman shared in a recent conversation how she loved Alice Cooper while she was only eleven. The rocker told a story that she went to a slumber party with Alice Cooper’s 1971 album ‘Love It to Death,’ and other girls looked at her like she was an ‘alien.’ The moment was the first time she realized that she was ‘weird,’ and her father encouraged her to embrace her weirdness.

The musician’s memory of the slumber party:

“Those girls looked at me like I was an alien from outer space. I remember going and telling my dad about it and having one of that first talking with me about owning your weird, and it’s okay to be different because those things make you different.”

Hale revealed in the same conversation that she told her childhood memory to Alice Cooper when they were on dinner during a tour with him. As the frontwoman conveyed, Cooper felt proud like a father as he was the person who helped her to discover she was ‘weird.’ She noted that she was pleased to share this memory with Cooper many years later.

When asked if she shared this story with Alice Cooper, Lzzy Hale responded:

“I did when he took us out on tour, and he’s like everyone’s dad. It’s awesome. It was still the most fun tour I think I’ve ever been on. He’s just so enjoyed and took all of us out to dinner one night. He’s like, ‘Come, sit next to me.’ We’re chatting and having our diet cokes, and I told him that story.

He looks at me, and he’s like, ‘Oh, I’m so proud that I was the one who made you discover that you were weird.’ He was like a proud father. I’m like, ‘Yeah, that was my introduction.’ It was wonderful to finally be able to tell that story after all those years. I ended up calling my dad afterward. I’m like, ‘Dad. I told him the slumber party story.'”
