Alice Cooper made his first appearance on a TV talk show this week on CBS's Mike Douglas show. Cooper appeared with actor Ryan O'Neal and Peter Falk. Falk plays Colombo, the seedy police Detective, in the hugely successful TV show.

Cooper, introduced as one off the "few golfers who earn over a million dollars in a year", brought his golf clubs on to the set and hit a few chip shots in the studio with Douglas and Falk. He also talked about his friendship with Groucho Marx and his forthcoming solo album "Welcome To My Nighmare".
