Who is Alice Cooper?
Vincent Damon Furnier, known better by his stage name Alice Cooper, was born in Detroit, Michigan USA, on 4 February 1948 – his zodiac sign is Aquarius and he holds American nationality. He is known as ‘The Godfather of Shock Rock’, while he became popular with his Alice Cooper band’s song “I’m Eighteen” released in 1971.
He grew up in Detroit where he was raised by his father Ether Moroni Furnier and mother Ella Mae, while the family moved to Phoenix in Arizona when he was 12 because he was ill. Alice studied at Cortez High School, at which he became interested in music and dreamed about selling a million albums. When he was 16, he competed in the school’s talent show with his band The Earwigs, which he founded with four other boys.
They won the show and decided to become a real band, renaming themselves to The Spiders, while they eventually changed the name to Alice Cooper. At that time, the main members were Alice, Glen Buxton on the lead guitar, Dennis Dunaway on bass, Michael Bruce on rhythm guitar, and Neal Smith on drums.
The boys eventually signed a three-album contract with Frank Zappa’s Straight Records, and their debut album “Pretties for You” came out in 1969 while they mostly became popular for a new subgenre they created called ‘shock rock’ – the term was created by fans after Alice threw a live chicken into the audience which they then tore to pieces (the newspapers wrote about Alice biting off the chicken’s head on stage and drinking its blood).
Their second album, “Easy Action” came out in June 1970, while their third album “Love It to Death” followed in March 1971, with their fourth album “Killer” released later that year.
The band disbanded four years later, but Alice then took Alice Cooper as his real name, and launched his solo career with the release of his concept album “Welcome to My Nightmare”. He went on to release many albums, and in 1988 signed a contract with Epic Records – a year later, he became famous all around the world after his hit single “Poison” was released, and peaked at #2 in the United Kingdom and #7 in the US. By 1992, Alice had released 19 studio albums, and then stopped releasing them but rather focused on his other works – his 21st solo album is set to be released on 26 February 2021, entitled “Detroit Stories”.
He has been nominated for 38 awards for his music, winning 30 – he has also been nominated for five Grammy Awards.
In 1986, Alice noticed that the members of the band Megadeth were having problems with drug and alcohol abuse, and set out to help them overcome their addictions, after having previously overcome his own alcohol addiction.
He is also a writer, having released his autobiography “Alice Cooper, Golf Monster” in 2007.
He is a big fan of American hockey, and cheers for Arizona Coyotes competing in the National Hockey League (NHL) – Alice is also a fan of baseball and supports both the Detroit Tigers and the Arizona Diamondbacks. He is avid golf player too.
