ALICE COOPER Vinyl Discography

  Alice Cooper is an American singer, songwriter, and actor born Vincent Damon Furnier on 4 February 1948 in Detroit, Michigan. He grew up in Phoenix, Arizona and formed his first rock band, The Spiders, while he was in high school. After changing the band's name to The Nazz, Furnier took on the stage name Alice Cooper and began performing a mix of hard rock and psychedelic music.

  In 1969, Alice Cooper signed with Frank Zappa's record label, Straight Records, and released their first album, "Pretties for You." Despite mixed reviews, the album marked the beginning of Alice Cooper's rise to fame. In 1970, the band released their second album, "Easy Action," which was followed by their breakthrough album, "Love It to Death," in 1971. The album was a commercial success and produced the hit single "I'm Eighteen," which reached the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

  Over the next few years, Alice Cooper continued to release successful albums and build a reputation for their outrageous and theatrical live shows. In 1972, the band released the album "School's Out," which became their biggest commercial success to date and solidified Alice Cooper's position as one of the leading figures in the emerging heavy metal genre.

  In the mid-1970s, Alice Cooper faced a series of personal and professional challenges, including substance abuse and the collapse of their record label. Despite these setbacks, Alice Cooper continued to tour and release albums, and eventually regained his popularity with the release of "From the Inside" in 1978. The album was a more personal and introspective work and marked a departure from the shock rock image that Alice Cooper had become known for.

  Alice Cooper has been married to Sheryl Goddard since 1976. Sheryl Goddard is a dancer and choreographer and has performed as a dancer in Alice Cooper's stage shows over the years.

  Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Alice Cooper continued to tour and release new music, and in 1989, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In the 2000s, he released several successful albums, including "Brutal Planet" and "The Eyes of Alice Cooper," and continued to tour and perform to enthusiastic audiences around the world.
