After years of trying and campaigning,  Alice Cooper will finally be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Monday.  As Cooper puts it, he was Susan Lucci for a long time.

Cooper talked with USA Todayabout the honor, and said this recognition comes at a time when he can really appreciate it.  He likes living a normal life -- out of the rock cycle of drugs and babes, and he enjoys playing golf and shopping.
Cooper also told USA Today, “I want a wife (his 35th anniversary with wife Sheryl is on March 20) and kids and a family, my spiritual life, my Christian life. This Alice character didn't want any part of my life. I separated the two, and I found that Alice became more defined as Alice, and I had my own life.”

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction happens March 14, but airs March 20 on Fuse.
