The king of shock rock Vincent Damon Furnier, best known by his moniker Alice Cooper, rose to fame in the 1970s with his eleborate, horror movie-inspired live shows. During his heyday Cooper would put on performances that were just as much entertainment theater as they were musical performances--with guillotines, electric chairs, fake blood, boa constrictors and other lewd devices. Though Alice Cooper started off as a band in the late 1960s, Furnier adopted the name for himself starting in 1975 with his concept album Welcome to My Nightmare. With a catalog of music over two dozen records long, Alice Cooper continues to offer his morbid brand of performance art during live shows for a new generation of metal fans.
