Detroit, Michigan-born Vincent Damon Furnier, who is commonly known by the alias Alice Cooper, is a successful American singer, actor, and songwriter, who is widely considered the pioneer of ‘Shock Rock’, a subgenre of rock music he had accidentally made popular during his early career. With the determination of selling a million records, Vincent originally started out in a group of singers with his high school friends, which, after multiple name changes, started performing as ‘Alice Cooper’. However, after the band split following a whirlwind career that lasted about a decade, Vincent legally changed his name and continued his music career, performing and releasing albums with the same name. In his career spanning more than five decades, he has released an audiobook, 48 tracks, 27 studio albums, 11 live albums, 21 compilation albums, and 12 videos. So far, two of his solo albums and four of his former band’s albums have received platinum certifications by RIAA. Additionally, he has made appearances in many movies and television shows.
Early Life: Childhood, Education
Vincent Damon Furnier was born on the 4th of February 1948 in Detroit, Michigan, the United States. His father’s name is Ether and his mother, Ella Mae.
The singer had one sibling, a sister named Nicola Crandall. His father was an evangelist in The Church of Jesus Christ.
Furnier faced a series of illnesses during his childhood days, forcing him to move to Phoenix, Arizona with his family when he was 13 years old. There he attended and graduated from Cortez High School.
In 1964, Cooper and some of his classmates began making music. Their band names over the years included the Earwigs, The Spiders, and Nazz. Eventually, they settled for the name “Alice Cooper”. By 1968, the band was already making frequent trips to different cities in the United States in order to play shows.

The band, Alice Cooper, made its official debut in 1969 with the album “Pretties for You”. Overall, they would release seven albums in total, with four of them earning platinum certifications from the RIAA.

The band spent several years nailing lucrative recording deals with labels like Epic Records, MCA Records, Warner Records Inc., and Atlantic Recording. According to reports by Outsider, the band managed to sell more than 50 million records over the years.
After the band broke up in 1875, Vincent legally adopted the band’s name, “Alice Cooper”. A good portion of the fortune he currently enjoys has been derived from his many tours over the years. Interestingly, he has ventured on about 40 different tours between 1968 and 2021.
