Alice Cooper is an American born rock star who writes and performs solo. Cooper’s music falls into the term shock rock, or hard rock, with some fans even calling some of his tunes metal rock. He’s been active as a musician since 1964 when a then-teenage Alice played in a band called Nazz before rechristening it Alice Cooper in 1968. Perhaps the most well-known songs sung by Alice Cooper are “School’s Out” and “No More Mister Nice Guy”.
Born February 4, 1948, Alice’s zodiac sign is Aquarius. Alice’s birth name was Vincent Damon Furnier; he legally changed it to Alice Cooper in 1975.
Since the 1990s, Cooper has also gotten famous for playing semi-pro golf. He’s played in several Pro-am tournaments and also hosts his own annual charity tournament.
Cooper makes it a point to not reveal who he chooses to vote for. Instead, he has called himself “moderate” and “non-political” about who gets his vote in elections.
“When my parents would start talking politics, I would go in my room and put on the Rolling Stones or The Who as long as I could avoid politics. And I still feel that way,” Alice is quoted as saying. (1)
“[Trump’s] an interesting character. It seems like he shoots himself in the foot every single day and gets more popular by doing it. It’s the weirdest. Like I said, it’s like Vonnegut: Everything that shouldn’t happen is happening. It’s the same with her. Every time she gets a little bit ahead, something else comes out that makes her look worse ’til you’re sitting there going, “I honestly have no idea who to vote for this time.” (2)
“I hate it when fans go, ‘Who should I vote for?’ Why do you think rock stars would know any more than you do? We’re rock stars; we’re dumber than you.” (3)
“I think what Bono does and what Springsteen does, Sting and all the people that raise money for others – that’s humanitarian, and I’m all for that… but I don’t think that’s political.” (3)
