Alice Cooper, born Vincent Furnier in Michigan, USA on 04 February 1948, Alice Cooper became known as the 'master of shock rock' during the seventies and has remained a popular artist right up to the present day. He formed a band called The Earwigs in the early sixties. The Earwigs became the Spiders and then the Nazz, playing at local dances and releasing the odd single. The Nazz ultimately became Alice Cooper, so named by Furnier who believed that he was a reincarnation of a seventeenth century witch of the same name. The band's initial line-up was comprised of Glen Buxton and Mike Bruce on guitars, Dennis Dunaway on bass and Neal Smith on drums. Furnier invented an outrageously attired character to attract attention and the band played deliberately abrasive rock music with the intention of shocking and even alienating those attending its concerts. Frank Zappa signed the band to his Straight Records label and they recorded t heir first two albums for the label before moving to Warner Brothers in 1970. In the meantime, Cooper's stage act was getting more and more bizarre, with guillotine's, electric chairs, weird make-up and live snakes as part of the stage act. They went on to record a number of top 10 albums, with Cooper also becoming a Hollywood celebrity, playing golf and appearing on TV talk shows. During the late eighties'/early nineties, he worked with the likes of Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Slash and Axl from Guns 'n Roses and others. He's still very much around today, and he's just released a brand new album called "Brutal Planet".
