What Alice Cooper Used To Look Like

What Alice Cooper Used To Look Like, I always used to think I’d go up onstage and say, ‘Boy, I hope you like us tonight. We’re going to try to do a great show for you,’” says shock rocker Alice Cooper in faux-sweet tones. “But you have to just grab the audience by the throat and say, ‘You’re mine for two hours. So shut up and stand up.’”
With a hard-hitting alpha-male philosophy like that, it’s no wonder Cooper is a legend: If you dare doubt him, his onstage guillotine awaits nearby. But luckily, he has the talent to back up his bravado, as he’s proven with more than four decades of aggressive hard-rock hits like “School’s Out,” “Eighteen,” “Poison,” and dozens more. Cooper’s dedication to depredation was recognized this past March, when he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
There, he performed alongside guitarist Michael Bruce, bassist Dennis Dunaway, and drummer Neal Smith — members of the Alice Cooper Band’s original lineup. (Lead guitarist Glen Buxton passed away in 1997; Cooper’s late-’70s axman, Steve Hunter, filled in.) Cooper would play with them again the following month at hard-rock magazine Revolver’s Golden Gods Awards, where he received the night’s titular honor.
