For almost a half-century, Alice Cooper has been the pioneer of a groundbreaking theatrical and heavy metal rock performance designed to shock parents and thrill kids. The Rolling Stone Album Guide calls him the world’s most “beloved heavy metal entertainer.” Alice helped to shape the sound and look of heavy metal, introducing horror imagery to rock and roll. His imaginative stagecraft and masterful showmanship have transformed the genre for generations to come. In 2011, the original Alice Cooper band was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, followed by the release of “Welcome 2 My Nightmare,” the highly anticipated album 35 years after the original concept album that established Alice Cooper as a cultural phenomenon. Away from music, Alice is decidedly different from his stage persona. A warm and friendly family man, as well as a film actor and celebrity golfer, and a popular radio DJ with his classic rock show, “Nights with Alice Cooper.” He founded Solid Rock Foundation in 1995 which provide teens a supportive and safe place to learn, have fun, and explore their creativity through music, dance, and self expression.
