Ageing hellraiser Alice Cooper is convinced the end of the world is approaching, citing the recent string of horrendous natural disasters as evidence of an imminent apocalypse.

The SCHOOL'S OUT rocker, whose father was a preacher, maintains current world affairs match the forecast written in the prophetic book of Revelations in the Bible.

He says, "Everybody is aware of the end of time - the floods, the tsunami, the hurricanes. It's Revelations. It's all supposed to happen.

"I know where it's going because, according to the Bible, it's like this for a while and then we'll see the Antichrist, who's going to be the smoothest car salesman you've ever seen in your life.

"He's going to be like Gandhi. He's going to be the guy you never expected, because he's saving everybody.

"That's the guy you've got to worry about."
