Did you know: The Alice Cooper Edition

Prepare yourself for the arrival of Alice Cooper on his ‘Ol’ Black Eyes Is Back’ tour with these little “did you knows”. Got something else that you think we need to add? Tell us on Facebook!

  • Alice Cooper was born Vincent Damon Furnier in Detroit, Michigan.

  • His father was a preacher in The Church of Jesus Christ (Bickertonite) headquartered in Monongahela, Pennsylvania.

  • The legend is that the name “Alice Cooper” came from a session with a Ouija board, largely chosen because it sounded innocuous and wholesome.

  • Cooper is an avid golfer, and has been rumoured to play a round before getting ready for his ‘day job’, which seems quite at odds to his persona.
