The Godfather of Shock Rock, the one and only Mr. Alice Cooper, began his stellar musical journey way back in the year of 1963, when he was only 15 years old. Always showing tendencies towards all things gory, Alice managed to craft a unique personal story through a mixture of horror image, clever career moves, and a hefty dose of talent and quality songwriting.
His first album saw its release in 1969 under the title of “Pretties for You.” Despite weak success, the record marked a significant point in Alice’s career, and it was only two years later that his first hit and his first platinum album came along.
Titled “Love It to Death,” Cooper’s third album featured “I’m Eighteen” hit single, which quickly found its way among the rock classics. Still in full swing, Alice presented “School’s Out” in 1972, scoring No. 2 spot on the Billboard 200 chart thanks to the title track, which once again became a timeless classic.
In 1973, Alice scored his first and only No. 1 album in the US with “Billion Dollar Babies” album featuring “No More Mr. Nice Guy” single.
His shows were extremely gory and it was very quick that Cooper became the sight to see. In 1975, Cooper’s magnum opus, “Welcome to My Nightmare,” fetched him massive acclaim and established him as the absolute leader of the genre.
Alice’s career remained very consistent, but featured another major boost with the 1989 release of his 18th studio album “Trash.” Lead single “Poison” found its way to the listeners’ hearts and stuck as possibly the most recognizable tune from the shock rock icon.
To this day, Alice Cooper has unveiled a very impressive total of 26 studio albums, 46 singles, 10 live albums, 21 compilation albums, 12 video releases, and one audiobook.
He sold over 50 million albums and managed to secure his position as one of the most recognizable personas in rock ‘n’ roll history.
