Alice Cooper biography
Music was always a part of Alice’s life, who wanted to form a musical group different from everything that had existed up to that moment, also wanting to offer the public a type of theatrical show of a Gothic or very dark genre.
The band’s first formation was made up of musicians Vincent Damon Furnier, who voiced, Glen Buxton, who played the guitar, Michael Bruce, also on guitar, Dennis Dunaway, who played bass, and Neal Smith, on drums. . The band was formally composed in the year 1964.
The band released a total of eight albums, of the Shock Rock genre, among them some LPs, their greatest success being “Love it to death”, which was widely accepted by the public. as from criticism.
After performing musical shows and performances, the band falls into a deep musical slump, due to the death of their component Glen Buxton, a fact that caused the band to completely dissolve.
Alice Cooper career
This fact motivated Alicia to continue her solo career, keeping her original name Alice Cooper. Now, then, as a soloist, he released his first album in 1975 called “Welcome to My Nightmare”, which was a great success.
The album changed a bit of genre, to heavy metal, in addition to having careful musical arrangements that positively influenced the rest of the musician’s discography.
Alice soon released another album, which would be named “Alice Cooper Goes to hell”. This work was not as successful as the previous one, which for the musician represented falling into a deeply personal and identity crisis, causing him to start having some problems with alcohol. To try to overcome it, the singer entered a rehabilitation center.
During that period, Alice recorded various demos with the singer ” Bon Jovi “, at the time known as “John Bon Jovi”.
Alice, at the beginning of the 80s, re-released several singles that would later become an album, but which did not have much of a boom in the music scene of that time.
It was at the end of the 80s and with the release of his album “Poison”, when the singer returned to the forefront of the music scene. This LP, with a clear heavy metal sound, gives the singer the opportunity to appear in various audiovisual media such as on MTV.
In the late 90s and early 2000s, the singer tried to resume his musical origins again, not finding a good reception from critics on that return.
Alice, with his album “Brutal Planet”, returns again to a heavy style, this time with more force than in his previous attempt. This makes bands like Marilyn Manson, among others, take good note of this LP, to put certain references in their music.
Alice, in 2005, began to tour to enhance her albums, at the same time that she made various collaborations with other groups and artists, among which “Avantasia” or “Tobias Sammet” stood out.
In early 2010, Alice Cooper collaborates on the album “Slash”, interpreting the song “Baby Can’t Drive”, with Nicole Scherzinger.
