The Amazing Alice Cooper

Question: Hi. Despite being relatively young I grew up listening to some of my father and uncle's favorite rock bands. Perhaps my favorite performer is legendary rocker Alice Cooper. For those of you, who are unfamiliar with Alice. Cooper has been around for over thirty years. He is the first performer ever to use theatrics in rock and is considered one of the greatest acts in rock and roll history. Despite his age, he still tours and puts out albums. He has had some big albums throughout the years and has sold 98 million albums worldwide in his career. On October 9th, he put out his 28th studio album called Dragontown and I must admit this is one of his best eforts in years. The guitars are heavy and the lyrics amazing. In case, you are wondering he has been cited as an influence by thousands of bands. 80's bands such as Motley Crue and Twisted Sister cite him as their biggest influence. Rob Zombie in the 90's has said everyone in rock has ripped Alice off. In case you are wondering, pathetic Marilyn Manson ripped Cooper off big time. Manson is not the original shock rocker. Cooper has done it for ages and is the first to use makeup,etc. Alice's music can be shocking but the difference is, Alice will tell you it is an act and is a good guy off stage. He has never been into the Satanic, evil stuff Manson tries to promote. What are your thoughts on Alice?

How caould anyone that knows anything about rock, not be aware of one of the founding fathers. This guy still can get it done and blows away most of the newer bands. He is even better than Ozzy.

I had heard of Alice and knew a few songs but just recently bought Dragontown and I must admit I was impressed. He played in Atlanta and now I understand. This guy is incredible. Count me in as a big Alice fan and I want to learn more.

Greatest performer in the history of rock. Only an idiot wouldn't know about Alice.

I have heard a few songs by Alice and I must admit they rock. I am going to buy a couple of albums and give it a chance.

You mean to tell me someone actually mentioned someone who rocks on this boyband dominated board?!!!!! It doesn't get any better than Alice.

I bought his last few albums and got to see him live. I know that the 70's were his peak, but this guy still has it. I love Alice Cooper!

I would be embrassed if I went through life not owning an Alice CD. My favorites are Love It To Death, Billion Dollar Babies, Welcome To My Nightmare. Hey Stoopid, The Last Temptation, Brutal Planet, and Dragontown.

I went out and bought a couple of Alice CD's and I am convinced. This guy rocks! I bought one of his early 70's CD's and then bought the Dragontown CD he just put out, and I love both eras. I am now a Cooper fan, thanks to everyone for giving him some time on this board!

The greatest theatrical performer in the history of rock. Anyone unfamiliar with Alice is an idiot.

Marilyn Manson rocks! He's hott, and I love his music. He may be anti-christ, but I'm Christian, and I like him a lot! Alice Cooper's cool, but I'd MUCH prefer Marilyn Manson.

He has a new out on August 2nd, 2005 called "Dirty Diamonds". I got to hear a couple of tracks and I like it.

What about SCHOOL'S OUT? That is undoubtedly his signature record and is also his earliest big hit (1972). Let's not forget: SCHOOL'S OUT!!!

Love Alice Cooper. Still touring and still putting out great albums. May be the greatest hard rocker ever.
