Alice Cooper

Welcome To My Nightmare (Expanded & Remastered)
Welcome To My Nightmare (Expanded & Remastered)
"There was a little loft at the Rainbow Room in LA, they only had that for the club: the club was myself, Keith Moon, Ringo Starr, Micky Dolenz, Harry Nilsson, it was that crowd, every night those same people. Every once in a while John Lennon would come into town or Keith Emerson and they would be honorable members of the night. They still have a plaque there at the Rainbow, where it says 'The Lair of the Hollywood Vampires.'" -- Alice Cooper

Vincent Damon Furnier was born on February 4, 1948, in Detroit, Michigan.

Furnier's family moved to Phoenix, Arizona, and Vincent began writing songs. While in school, Furnier formed a band that played local dances.

In 1968, Furnier's group changed its name to Alice Cooper. Furnier claimed he was the reincarnation of a seventeenth-century witch of that name.

In 1969, Frank Zappa signed Alice Cooper to his Straight Records label. They released a few albums and in 1971 they released their first hit single, "Eighteen," which reaced number 21 on the US charts.

In 1972, they had a top 10 hit with "School's Out." Several bestselling albums followed.

After Welcome To My Nightmare, Furnier adopted the name "Alice Cooper" for himself.

Cooper continued to record and also started acting in films and on television. In 1989, he had a top 40 hit with "Poison." In 1992, he appeared in Wayne's World.
