Biography

With sensational stage shows involving
fake executions, mock fights, live snakes, overt sexuality and other garish
theatricality designed to offend the moral majority, Alice Cooper, born Vincent
Furnier in Detroit, Michigan on February 4, 1948, was one of the most
controversial rock stars of the 1970s and '80s. His first band, The Spiders, played
around Phoenix, Arizona, before he moved to Los Angeles and developed the androgynous,
alter-ego of Alice Cooper, which came as a nasty shock to the hippy era. His
shock-rock sharply divided opinion, but Cooper's band were signed by Frank
Zappa to the Straight Records label, which released his first album Pretties
for You
in 1969. Cooper's first hit, “I'm 18”, came in 1970 and he
reached new heights, outraging the establishment with the international smash School's
Out
in 1972. The concept album Welcome to My Nightmare followed in
1975 telling the story of a young boy called Steven, featuring narration by
horror movie veteran Vincent Price. The album was turned into a stage show and
also a TV special and earned Cooper a Grammy nomination for Best Long Form
Music Video. Lifestyle excesses took their toll in the late '70s, but after a
stay in rehab for alcohol addiction, Cooper cleaned up his act to come back
strong in the early 1990s, With the release of 1991’a Hey Stoopid he
regained his momentum to record again and found himself collaborating with the
likes of Guns N' Roses and appearing in films. 1994’s The Last Temptation
was Cooper's final album of the decade, and he began the 21st century with a
tour and the album Brutal Planet. Dragontown followed soon after,
joined by The Eyes of Alice Cooper and Dirty Diamonds, with Welcome
2 My Nightmare
, the sequel to the 1975 concept album, being released in 2011.
2017’s Paranormal would become his 10th LP to get into the
top 40, and he began the next decade with 2021’s Detroit Stories.
