Cooper’s mark on the world of entertainment is undeniable. He recently received his long-awaited star on the legendary Hollywood Walk of Fame as well as lifetime achievement awards from both Classic Rock and Mojo, two of the most important rock music magazines in the world.
Alice’s 1994 album, “The Last Temptation,” was released with a trilogy of Marvel comics based on the concept of the album. 1999 saw the release of his definitive four CD box set entitled “The Life And Crimes of Alice Cooper,” chronicling Alice’s musical legacy. The DVD releases of the 1975 “Welcome To My Nightmare” concert movie, 1986’s “The Nightmare Returns” live concert DVD, “Brutally Live” from his 2000 concert tour, the “Live At Montreux” DVD filmed in 2005, and “Prime Cuts,” a documentary of Alice’s career were subsequently released.
With the release of “Along Came A Spider,” his 2008 album, Alice shows no sign of slowing down. Debuting in 1970, he soon turned the music world upside down, wearing outrageous clothing and make-up, performing loud hard music framing sharp-edged lyrics. His recording successes notwithstanding, it is on stage, both musically and visually, that Alice has had his greatest impact.
The road is still Alice’s second home as he continues to tour extensively throughout the world. Alice Cooper brought show business and rock‘n roll together in ways never seen before and rarely seen since. It is not surprising that, after all the shock waves he has caused, the legend of Alice Cooper continues strong into the new millennium. He is known for his social and witty persona offstage; The Rolling Stone Album Guide has called him the world’s most “beloved heavy metal entertainer.” Away from music, Cooper is a film actor, a golfing celebrity, a restaurateur and, since 2004, a popular radio DJ with his classic rock show “Nights with Alice Cooper”.
