A heavy metal/hard rock artist from UsefulNotes/{{Detroit}}, Michigan, Vincent Damon Furnier (February 4, 1948-) was originally the frontman of a band called Alice Cooper. However, with the release of his first solo album, ''Welcome to My Nightmare'', in 1975, Furnier started to use the name of the band as his stage name. He has since legally changed his name to this. The split was entirely amicable, probably because Furnier [[NiceGuy pays royalties to his former bandmates for the right to use the name.]]

* PieInTheFace: On one of VH1's countdown lists of the craziest concert moments, a fan hits him in the face with a cream pie while he's crouched down on the stage during a dramatic moment. He just rolls with it, wiping the filling off his face and licking his finger. In the accompanying interview he says that afterwards it occurred to him that it wasn't a smart thing to do, since he didn't know what the pie might be laced with. It turned out all right though.

* NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity: Alice Cooper was the ultimate "kids love him, parents despise him" artist of his day, so obviously he just wallowed in this trope. Hell, people [[http://www.planetrock.com/news/rock-news/alice-cooper-responds-perfectly-to-resident-protesting-his-foul-minnesota-gig/ still get up in arms]] over his concerts.

Cooper's career spans 45 years with 26 albums, and is often cited as one of the most influential performers in the hard rock genre. Music/BobDylan even commented in a 1978 interview that he thought "Alice Cooper is an overlooked songwriter". Cooper's stage shows are known for their shock value and vaudevillian influences, of which [[MarxBrothers Groucho Marx]] and Mae West were both fans. Starting in 2004, he began hosting a Detroit-based radio show, ''Nights with Alice Cooper''.
