About Alice Cooper at 75:
Pythons, guillotines, stage blood…Alice Cooper is widely considered the godfather of shock rock thanks to his inventive concoction of vaudeville, horror film conceits, and three-chord rock ’n’ roll. In Alice Cooper at 75, veteran rock journalist Gary Graff shows you this rock icon through the lens of 75 career accomplishments, events, and partnerships.
Through seven-and-a-half decades, Graff covers it all:
- Cooper’s childhood in Detroit and Arizona and early garage bands the Earwigs and the Spiders
- All 28 studio albums, including those as front person of Alice Cooper the band
- A selection of his greatest singles, like the classic-rock standards “I’m Eighteen,” “School’s Out,” and “Welcome to My Nightmare”
- Collaborations with artists including Slash, Dave Grohl, Johnny Depp, Wayne Kramer, and more
- Associations with notable guitarists, including Glen Buxton, Nita Strauss, Orianthi, and others
- Nonmusical passions like classic cars and, of course, golf
- His relationship with wife and entertainment accomplice Sheryl
- Tireless charity work
SUPER DUPER ALICE COOPER (2014) offers rare archival footage, animation, and interviews that illustrate the story of how Vincent Furnier, a preacher's son, became rock icon Alice Cooper.
