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.
Released in the summer of 1972, “School’s Out” was Alice Cooper’s breakthrough record, peaking at number 2 and selling over a million copies. “Billion Dollar Babies”, released the following year, was the group’s biggest hit, reaching number one in both America and Britain. “No More Mr. Nice Guy,” “Poison,” and “I’m Eighteen” are among Cooper’s other chart topping classic rock songs.
In the new millennium, Cooper has been very productive and busy, writing, recording and releasing the albums “Brutal Planet,” “Dragon Town,” “The Eyes of Alice Cooper,” “Dirty Diamonds,” “Along Came a Spider,” and 2011’s “Welcome 2 My Nightmare,” plus “Old School 1964-1974,” a box set celebrating the original band.
With his influence on rock & roll long since acknowledged, there is little that Alice Cooper hasn’t achieved in his remarkable career, including platinum albums, sold-out tours and a number of honors and career achievement awards.
