Alice Cooper is an American rock singer whose career spans over 54 years.
Cooper was born in Detroit, Michigan, the son of Ether Moroni Furnier (1924–1987) and his wife Ella Mae. He was named after his uncle, Vincent Collier Furnier, and the writer Damon Runyon.
His father was an evangelist in The Church of Jesus Christ, informally known as “Bickertonites”, and his paternal grandfather, Thurman Sylvester Furnier, was an apostle (from 1917) in and president (1963–1965) of that church.
He has drawn equally from horror films, vaudeville, and garage rock to pioneer a macabre and theatrical brand of rock designed to shock audiences.
