The king of shock rock Vincent Damon Furnier, best known by his moniker Alice Cooper, rose to fame in the 1970s for 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 and 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.
