About Alice Cooper
Alice Cooper pioneered a grandly theatrical brand of hard rock that was designed to shock. Drawing equally from horror movies, vaudeville and garage rock, the group created a stage show that featured electric chairs, guillotines, fake blood and boa constrictors.
Cooper was born in Detroit, Michigan and moved to Phoenix with his family. The Alice Cooper band formed while they were all in high school in Phoenix and was discovered in 1969 by Frank Zappa in Los Angeles, where he signed them to his record label. Their collaboration with youth record producer Bob Ezrin led to the break-through album, “Love it to Death,” which hit the charts in 1971, followed by “Killer,” “School’s Out,” “Billion Dollar Babies” and “Muscle of Love.” Each new album release was accompanied by a bigger and more elaborate touring stage show. 1974 saw the release of a “Greatest Hits” album. Cooper released his first solo album, “Welcome to My Nightmare” in 1975, accompanied by the legendary, groundbreaking, theatrical “Welcome to My Nightmare” concert tour. Associated with that album and tour was the groundbreaking network television special, “Alice Cooper: The Nightmare.” Other film and television appearances include “The Muppet Show,” Mae West’s last film, “Sextette,” “Roadie,” “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” and appearances on “The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson” and Tom Snyder’s “Tomorrow Show.” The original band also made an appearance in the movie “Diary of a Mad Housewife” in 1979, and filmed the full-length feature film, “Good to See You Again, Alice Cooper.” Cooper also appeared in a 1972 episode of “The Snoop Sisters.”
Cooper’s solo career skyrocketed in the late 1970s with a succession of hit singles, including “You & Me,” and classic albums, including “Lace and Whiskey,” “From the Inside,” and bigger and even more elaborate concert tours.
