Alice Cooper originated as an American rock band consisting of Vincent Furnier, Glen Buxton, Michael Bruce, Dennis Dunaway and Neal Smith. The group rose to stardom in the early 1970s, releasing “I’m Eighteen” in 1971 and the even bigger hit “School’s Out” in 1972. In 1973 they released their most successful album, “Billion Dollar Babies,” which reached the #1 spot on both US and UK charts.
The band officially split in 1975, at which time Furnier embarked on his solo career, adopting the band’s name as his own. Between 1975 and 2008, Alice Cooper released 18 solo albums. His live shows are a mix of rock and horror, incorporating fake blood, execution equipment, live boa constrictors and more. Besides his musical career, he has also dabbled in film acting, created a radio show, “Nights with Alice Cooper,” and discovered a love of golf (to which he credits his recovery from drug addiction). He also continues to tour, embarking on the U.S. leg of his Theatre of Death Tour in fall 2009.
