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 continues to tour regularly, performing shows worldwide with the dark and horror-themed theatrics that he’s best known for.
With a schedule that includes six months each year on the road, Cooper brings his own brand of shock psycho-drama to fans both old and new, enjoying it as much as the audience does. Known as the architect of shock-rock, Cooper (in both the original Alice Cooper band and as a solo artist) has rattled the cages and undermined the authority of generations of guardians of the status quo, continuing to surprise fans and exude danger at every turn, like a great horror movie, even in an era where CNN can present real life shocking images.
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 young record producer Bob Ezrin
led to the break-through third 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, and then Cooper in 1975, released his first solo album, “Welcome to My Nightmare” in 1975, accompanied by the
legendary groundbreaking theatrical Welcome to My Nightmare concert tour.
Current band members include, Alice Cooper (lead vocals, guitar, harmonica), Ryan Roxie (guitar, backing vocals), Chuck Garric (bass, backing vocals), Glen Sobel (drums, percussion) and Nita Strauss (guitar, backing vocals).
As Cooper heads back out on the concert trail each year, he insists he’s still motivated to continue touring and recording albums, as well as making time for such side projects as Cooper’stown (his Phoenixbased restaurant/sports bar) and his Nights With Alice Cooper nightly radio show, syndicated domestically and worldwide on over 100 stations.
Today’s Alice Cooper concerts are still very much as good as in the beginning, if not better. Be smart and get your tickets now, you don’t want to be left standing outside the GSR’s beautiful new re-modeled venue emptied handed on October 25th wishing you’d listened to this examiner.
