Alice Cooper Rejects Raquel Welch Almost 40 Years Ago: Revisit The Moments That Could Have Ruined The Love-Life Of Cooper

By Staff Writer | April 08, 2013 03:04 PM EDT

Alice Cooper reportedly rejected Raquel Welch's advances in 1976, according Dick Wagner. Good thing he did, because he was dating his 19-year-old girlfriend whom he is still married to today.

In a recent memoir of Dick Wagner, the guitarist and song writer told a story that could have changed the life of Alice Cooper forever, but admitted he didn't understand how Cooper said no.

According to Wagner's memoir, Cooper and him were invited to Welch's hotel room after the Super Bowl in Miami, which featured the Pittsburgh Steelers defeat over the Dallas Cowboys. Wagner said he knew she was up to something as soon as they arrived.

"You gotta do it at least one time for all us horny b******s in the world," Wagner told Cooper at the time.

In the memoir, Wagner said the shock-musician was "crazy not to allow himself to be seduced."

He said that the next day, the two went golfing when Welch attempted to join them as Cooper's caddy. Cooper was able to flee the scene and stay true to his girlfriend, whom he is still married to nearly 40 years later.

Welch played numerous roles in movies throughout the years like "Bedazzled," "The Beloved" and "Legally Blonde." In the 1990s, Welch got into the infamous "catfight" with Julia Louise-Dryfus.

Throughout his career, Wagner worked with notable names like Cooper, Lou Reed and KISS. His memoir in Not Only Women Bleed: Vignettes from the Heart of a Rock Musician has been available since September. It spent two weeks at the top of Amazon.com.

Producer of Alice Cooper and Pink Floyd music, Bob Ezrin said Wagner's book is "witty, artful, literate, sometimes cheeky...wistful and exuberant but, above all, musical."

 Ryan Sparks told Classic Rock Revisited: "Wagner takes the reader on a highly entertaining and compelling emotional roller-coaster ride that seemingly leaves no stone unturned. 'Not Only Women Bleed' is almost impossible to put down."
