Alice Cooper is a Rock and Roll legend whose vivid imagination and unusual persona have combined to make him one of the rock era's greatest showmen. Debuting in 1970, he soon turned the music world upside down, wearing outrageous clothing and make-up, performing loud, hard music, framing sharp-edged lyrics. "We were into fun, sex, death and money when everybody was into peace and love," Alice explains. "We wanted to see what was next. It turned out we were next, and we drove a stake through the heart of the Love Generation." Alice Cooper touched a deep nerve in the minds of teenagers everywhere, bringing him countless gold and platinum albums from around the world, including "Love It To Death," "Billion Dollar Babies," and "Welcome To My Nightmare," featuring such anthems as "Eighteen," "Elected," "School's Out," and "No More Mr. Nice Guy." His recording successes notwithstanding, it is on stage, both musically and visually, where Alice has had his greatest impact. Colossal concert tours utilizing multi-level stage sets and elaborate scenery in ways unprecedented for a rock band. Each Alice Cooper tour continually topped the preceding one, setting a standard for technical wizardry and sheer theatrical imagination.
Alice Cooper has appeared in movies and television, including, most notably, "Wayne's World," "Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare," "Roadie," "John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness," and "Something Wilder," with Gene Wilder. In 1998, Alice opened Cooper'stown, a Rock and Roll sports bar and restaurant in downtown Phoenix, specializing in barbecue, family food, and fun for sports nuts and music fans. More Cooper'stown locations are expected to open soon, with Cleveland already up and running. 1999 saw the release of the long-awaited and definitive four-CD box set on Warner Archives/Rhino Records, entitled "The Life And Crimes of Alice Cooper," chronicling Alice's musical career. In September 2003, Cooper released his latest album, “The Eyes of Alice Cooper” on Spitfire Records, and just this week received his Star on the world-renowned Hollywood Walk of Fame.
“I’m really intrigued by the notion of radio,” said Alice about his new nighttime gig. “It’s a medium that lends itself to great theater right alongside the music, and I’m really looking forward to shaping something new and working side by side with a lot of my old friends on the station side.”
