MEET ALICE COOPER
“We are fulfilling a vision we’ve had for several years…to provide teens with a central place to learn, have fun, and explore their creativity in a supportive and safe environment. The Rock is the first of many teen centers in Arizona and, ultimately, around the country.”
For almost a half-century, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer, songwriter and musician Alice Cooper has been the pioneer of a groundbreaking theatrical and heavy metal rock performance designed to shock parents and thrill kids.
The Rolling Stone Album Guide calls him the world’s most “beloved heavy metal entertainer.” Alice helped to shape the sound and look of heavy metal, introducing horror imagery to rock and roll. His imaginative stagecraft and masterful showmanship have transformed the genre for generations to come.
In 2011, the original Alice Cooper band was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, followed by the release of “Welcome 2 My Nightmare,” the highly anticipated album 35 years after the original concept album that established Alice Cooper as a cultural phenomenon.
Away from music, Alice is decidedly different from his stage persona. A warm and friendly family man, as well as a film actor and celebrity golfer, a restaurateur as well as a popular radio DJ with his classic rock show Nights with Alice Cooper.
