Cooper Wanted To Shoot Elvis!

Shock-Rocker Alice Cooper once pointed a loaded .38 revolver at Elvis Presley — and thought about pulling the trigger!

"The little devil on my shoulder said, 'Shoot him. What a great story. Don't kill him, just shoot him,' " Cooper recalls.

But seconds later, the gun was out of Cooper's hands — and the School's Out singer was on the floor!

Cooper, 69, says the face-off happened in 1971 at the Las Vegas Hilton after Elvis summoned him.

"He takes me into the kitchen and says, 'I want to show you how to take a gun out of somebody's hand,' " Cooper reveals.

Elvis disarmed Cooper, and it was then a mutual admiration society was born!

"He liked that I was doing something he had done. Shock the kids, shock the audience," says Cooper.
