Check out Morrison Hotel Gallery's Alice Cooper photo gallery. The son of a minister, at age 17, Alice Cooper (born Vincent Damon Furnier) formed a rock band called the Earwigs, who changed their name to The Spiders and then The Nazz, before finally settling on Alice Cooper. The band's bizarre and macabre stage theatrics and lyric themes got the attention of Frank Zappa at the Whisky a Go Go in LA in 1969, who signed the band to his record label. Many albums later with songs "Love It to Death" and "Killer", and of course the anthemic "School's Out," Alice Cooper was becoming a cult classic. The original Alice Cooper band broke up in 1975, with the lead singer getting his name legally changed to Alice Cooper -- and performing under the name ever since. He's had a career of many movie and TV appearances and produced songs for many movie soundtracks throughout the 80's. In 1992 Alice's most memorable movie appearance was playing himself in Wayne's World with characters Wayne and Garth (the top echelon of comedians of the day Mike Myers and Dana Carvey) bowing down in his presence "We're not worthy!" With a long and storied career, one of the first tongue-in-cheek cult icons to rule in the underground world of rock n roll - we agree - we're not worthy!
