Fans of Alice loved him and still do, regardless of his overt style that under normal circumstances would be found rather scary and a subject of dire disapproval.

His journey to becoming a top millionaire was not a very obvious path. Alice and his bandmates at that time had to create their own path.

Key to his success was the resilience and strength of will in him and the band. Right from the earliest stages, the reception of their musical performances by the public fluctuated, but they were determined to make it through, even if it was required of them to change location.

Giving up was never a part of their schedule. Sometimes they were highly sought after and other times things went so low that they even at one time fell into heavy debt. Regardless they moved.

 

Alice Cooper's Early Life

Alice Cooper's real name is Vincent Fernier. He was born in Detroit, Michigan to parents Ella and Mickey Fernier. His father was the pastor of a local church.

However, Vince had a passion for rock and roll. He did not take on much interest in religious issues as his passion was on stage.

During his high school times, Vince was a popular kid at school, a trend-setter. Funnily, when the other kids at school would pick up his trends, he would immediately shift to something else. He was active in writing and on the school track team.

His energy right from school was translated into the epic performances he has given over time.

 

How did “Alice Cooper” Come About?

The seeds of Alice Cooper’s rock-and roll theatrical career were sown way back in high school when he teamed up with his friends at a school talent show to present a Beatles parody just for fun.

They changed some of the phrases in a Beatles song into their own sports-related lines that they felt were more interesting.

Right from his childhood, Cooper was a big fan of the Beatles band. Alice and his friends furthered their musical performances even after high school and made money performing at local bars.

The theatrical vibe was a special identifying feature of their performances. Audiences hardly got enough of their performances. They were set to amaze. Every time.

 

Why is he called Alice Cooper?

The name ‘Alice Cooper' was a suggestion by Vince himself. Him being called Alice mesmerized many fans who got curious as to why he would be called Alice yet he was a man.

The ‘Alice Cooper' character shaped the band's branding, performances and lyrics. It was a mixture of humour, weirdness, shock and energy.

This particular band had its own vibe that had never been seen anywhere.

They boys had named their band Spiders before leaving for Los Angeles which was a big urban area where they could promote their music further.

They later renamed their band ‘Alice Cooper' as suggested by Vince himself. Audiences could hardly figure out who Alice Cooper was among the singers, who paradoxically were all boys, yet Alice is a girl’s name.

Audiences thus concluded that Vince, who was the lead singer among the group must be Alice Cooper.

He embraced this name and took it on in future. Till now, most people know him as Alice Cooper. It is actually his brand name.

 

The Rough Journey of the Alice Cooper Band.

It was not always an easy path for the band. In 1969, the band released its first debut album ‘Pretties for you' which was a total flop. It did not make a lot of money.

Who is Shep Gordon?

Shep Gordon was the band's manager. He struggled to keep up the band's spirits through his mantra to them that ‘It took only 10, 11, 12 guys to start up Christianity. We don't need to be that big. We're 6. We're enough.’

Key to their success was their passion and an unwavering aim to make it to the top.

Additionally, the efforts of Shep Gordon in encouraging the boys to keep their heads high cannot be under looked.

His leadership kept the group oriented and focused to their goals and inherent passion.

The band, realising that they were no longer making it in Los Angeles, changed scene and went to Michigan.

Michigan was a great idea because the band was welcomed and its music met just the right atmosphere. Rock and roll were very popular in Michigan at that time.

Nonetheless, the power of Alice Cooper was still sustained even when he was performing alone. His power could still be felt.
