Alice Cooper

Datum narození: 4. únor 1948

Alice Cooper, narozen jako Vincent Damon Furnier je americký rockový zpěvák, textař a hudebník, jehož kariéra překlenuje půl století.

S jevištní show, která obsahovala gilotiny, elektrická křesla, falešnou krev a hada škrtiče hroznýše královského, byla směsicí scén z horrorových filmů, kabaretu, heavy metalové hudby a garage rocku, proslavil Alice Cooper divadelní podobu rockové hudby, která se stala známou jako shock rock.

„Alice Cooper“ bylo původně jméno skupiny, jejíž vedoucí osobností byl Vincent Furnier. V roce 1974 si Furnier změnil jméno na Alice Cooper a spustil svou sólovou kariéru. Od dob, kdy v roce 1965 vydali svůj první singl, ještě jako „The Spiders“, skupina Alice Cooper vstoupila do hlavního mezinárodního hudebního proudu hitem „I'm Eighteen“ z alba Love It to Death z roku 1971, následoval hit „School's Out“ a svého uměleckého úspěchu dosáhl albem Billion Dollar Babies . Cooperova sólová kariéra začala koncepčním albem Welcome to My Nightmare v roce 1975.


„Jedna vražda dělá zločince, miliony hrdinu.“

„The hippies wanted peace and love. We wanted Ferraris, blondes and switchblades.“


„Drinking beer is easy. Trashing your hotel room is easy. But being a Christian, that's a tough call. That's real rebellion.“

„I call it treason against rock 'n' roll because rock is the antithesis of politics. Rock should never be in bed with politics.... When I was a kid and my parents started talking about politics, I'd run to my room and put on the Rolling Stones as loud as I could. So when I see all these rock stars up there talking politics, it makes me sick..... If you're listening to a rock star in order to get your information on who to vote for, you're a bigger moron than they are. Why are we rock stars? Because we're morons. We sleep all day, we play music at night and very rarely do we sit around reading the Washington Journal.“

„Mistakes are part of the game. It's how well you recover from them, that's the mark of a great player.“

„Sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll is easy. True christianity…that's rebellion.“

„I hear you calling and it's needles and pins (And pins)
I want to hurt you just to hear you screaming my name
Don't want to touch you but you're under my skin (Deep in)
I want to kiss you but your lips are venomous poison“

„It doesn't matter how many drugs I take, I'm not fulfilled. This isn't satisfying. There's a spiritual hunger going on. Everybody feels it. If you don't feel it now, you will. Trust me. You will...

Drinking beer is easy. Trashing your hotel room is easy. But being a Christian, that's a tough call. That's the real rebellion.“


„Drinking beer is easy. Trashing your hotel room is easy. But being a Christian, that's a tough call. That's rebellion“

„I don't want to feel you die,
but if that's the way that God has planned you
Well, I'll put pennies on your eyes.
And it will go away, see?
You've only lived a minute of your life.
I must be dreaming...
Is someone calling me? No...
I think I hear a voice,
They're outside the door!“
Welcome to My Nightmare

„Welcome To My Nightmare!“

„I remember attending a Friars roast for Muhammad Ali when Don Rickles grabbed me and walked me up to Sinatra. “Hey, Frank,” he said to the Chairman of the Board, “tonight I’m sitting with this guy. You know why? Because he fills up baseball stadiums! You play bars.” Frank laughed and waved him off, with me standing there silently.

„Iggy and Alice. Alice and Iggy. Iggy was the total street-punk sex god—no shirt, his private parts sticking out of his pants. But he was a great performer. The band was so basic and raw, but it didn’t matter how well they played. In fact, the Stooges made the Ramones sound like a string quartet. The Stooges were relentless, and no matter what happened to Iggy out there in the crowd—somebody in the audience might knock him out cold, whatever—the band would never, ever stop playing. The roadies had to revive Iggy and set him back upon the stage, but meanwhile the band would go right into the next song. The Stooges were serious customers. I hated going on after Iggy! He wore the audience out. Musically maybe we were the better band, and visually we might have been more stunning, but the Stooges rocked.“ Alice Cooper, Golf Monster: A Rock 'n' Roller's 12 Steps to Becoming a Golf Addict

„One of the band’s all-time-favorite movies was What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, starring Bette Davis. In the movie, Bette wears disgusting caked makeup smeared on her face and underneath her eyes, with deep, dark, black eyeliner. She looks horrific and creepy because she put on traditional makeup thickly and badly. Another movie we watched over and over was Barbarella. One character, the Great Tyrant, was played by the gorgeous European actress Anita Pallenberg. She dressed in black leather with a black eye patch and had switchblades coming out of her. Alice Cooper’s look evolved from a composite of those female movie characters, with a little bit of Emma Peel from The Avengers added for good measure.
