Alice Cooper (born Vincent Damon Furnier; February 4, 1948) is an American rock singer, songwriter and musician whose career spans more than four decades. With a stage show that features guillotines, electric chairs, fake blood, boa constrictors, and baby dolls, Cooper has drawn equally from horror movies, vaudeville and garage rock to pioneer a grandly theatrical and violent brand of rock designed to shock. Originating in Detroit in the late 1960s, Alice Cooper was originally a band consisting of Furnier on vocals and harmonica, lead guitarist Glen Buxton, Michael Bruce on rhythm guitar, Dennis Dunaway on bass guitar, and drummer Neal Smith. The original Alice Cooper band broke into the international music mainstream with the 1971 hit "I'm Eighteen" from the album Love It to Death, which was followed by the even bigger single "School's Out" in 1972. The band reached their commercial peak with the 1973 album Billion Dollar Babies. Furnier's solo career as Alice Cooper, adopting the band's name as his own ...

we've posted this song before (from OctoberFest) but Hank somehow got cut out of that video, and this version from Frogees Bar last Friday night was pretty *** good so here it is again, in all it's glittery glory Alice Cooper's "Billion Dollar Babies"
"Billion Dollar Babies" is the 6th studio album by Alice Cooper, released on February 25, 1973. Happy 41st anniversary!! Cooper hired magician James Randi to design effects for the show, and Randi traveled with the tour to supervise and coordinate the effects. Randi even played a role in the stage show as "The Executioner". After the album was released, the band embarked on a tour which broke the United States box office records previously held by the Rolling Stones and included a scheduled 64 concerts in 59 cities in 90 days.

Ben Kortekaas wants me to post 10 albums that stuck with me. This is difficult because i generally don't listen to entire albums, but I can come up with 10. I'm interpreting this as something different from "list your 10 favorite albums," so I'll try to list influential records: The Monkees - My dad worked at NBC, and the sensational promotion for this new program was powerful. I got the record on release and it made me realize that I wanted to be associated with music in a way seeing the Beatles on Ed Sullivan hadn't. Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin - My best friend's brother was drafted and went off to Vietnam, leaving his record collection behind. This record sounded… different. The guitar sound just grabbed me. Alice Cooper - Billion Dollar Babies - This was the album that made me realize rock and roll was dangerous and scared simple people. I liked that and loved the record. Queen - Queen II - I backed into this album in a way. I'd loved "Liar" and "Keep Yourself Alive," but I didn't buy any Quee ...
This is the English version of a review I wrote for the Brazilian website whiplash.net u enjoy it. Whatever mistakes you may find in it, please let me know, ok? Thanks for reading! Alice Cooper - BILLION DOLLAR BABIES (1973 ) The consolidation of the most successful American band of the early 1970s with an extraordinary album that plays with the moral and material values of his time . Here is a short summary of what Billion Dollar Babies is: an album that -- at the same time -- admitted and assumed the position of the Alice Cooper Group in the rock scene then. "Hello , Hooray ! Let the show begin , I've been ready" And how ready were Alice Cooper and his band! After five albums in an intense period of three years (from the recording of their debut album Pretties For You and the release of "Billion") the band formed in Phoenix, Arizona by four high school friends: Vince, Mike, Dennis (DD) and Glen (GB) and another friend from another school, Neal, had already done and seen a little of everything. Audiences ...
Alice Cooper was off the hook last night at the Emerald Queen Casino. He said a big, "Hello Hooray," to a packed out showroom to start off the evening. With pyro technics included. He would whip out a sword full of money as he sang, "Billion Dollar Babies." He would throw necklaces of diamonds to the song, "Dirty Diamonds," Jason and Frankenstein would pay everybody a visit in a big way as Alice would unleash his stage theatrics to the audience in attendance to the songs, He's Back (Man Behind The Mask), and Feed My Frankenstein. Everybody was wowed at what came out. Including me. The guillotine would make an appearance as Alice would loose his head for his crimes of escaping out of his straight jacket and strangling the nurse during, "The Ballad Of Dwight Fry." He would pay tribute to Jim Morrison, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, and Keith Moon in songs they had written and performed. He would bring the show to a close with his anthemic song, "Schools Out" with bubbles, big balloons, and confetti included. A ...
THE PARTY JUST A STORY FROM NOT "ONLY WOMEN BLEED" FOR THOSE UNFAMILIAR WITH MY BOOK, I had been in Hollywood for only a short time as we began the 6 week rehearsal time for the Welcome to my Nightmare tour. As different movers and shakers came through the Paramount Films sound stage, guests and friends of Alice, checking out the soon to be historic stage show, I had the fortune/misfortune to be invited to “The Party”, a celebration of Keith Moon’s birthday being hosted by the infamous producer, manager and Hollywood party host legend, Mr. Alan Carr. Alice Cooper had been recently elevated to top draw status in the world of live performances, and our little extravaganza was going to top the notoriety and success of Alice’s last tour, Billion Dollar Babies, and create a reputation for the new Cooper band as the best band and best show in the business in the 1970s. I do not wish to start dropping names, but the party was a star studded circus spread throughout Alan Carr’s mansion, and admittedl .. ...
Going through the Vinyl Stack from this past week and here are a few...(1) Re-Issue of the Attention Collection, Vol. 1 & 2, Colored Vinyl of Black Sabbath Collection.

Another beautiful day for being outside. I'm enjoying the fact that the weather hasn't been terribly hot; however, I believe that may be what is holding back my pepper plants. I followed some advice from Dean Alan Markley and gave them a pep talk. A musical variety on my playlist, including Gloria Estefan singing "Turn the Beat Around," Alice Cooper's "Billion Dollar Babies" and David Sanborn's "A Change of Heart."

Tonight's album collection selection was inspired by the legendary Mr Tight But Loose unearthing his NME Alice Cooper flexi disc earlier today - Alice's Billion Dollar Babies album from 1973. For me, Alice was absolutely a case of the right rock star at the right moment. Billion Dollar Babies is arguably the zenith of his entire career, unless you're in the School's Out camp, I guess. A great single, but this album is full of really strong material. Nowhere stronger, indeed, than the big hit single Elected, which even today has something to say about politics/corruption etc. I'll never, ever forget the seismic impact that the video for Elected had on me when it was shown on Top of the Pops. It opens with a suitably wasted, long-haired Alice in his white suit and top hat appearing from his Rolls Royce and pressing the flesh with various bystanders. Cut to some sort of backstage scene with Alice and his band smoking and drinking with a chimpanzee that enters the room with a wheelbarrow full of dollar bills ...
Shock rock pioneer whose on-stage antics caused outrage across the world. As he battled with drink and drugs, his career took a nose dive until 'Wayne's World'. We're not worthy! Born Vincent Furnier, Cooper formed his group early and as a teenager he, along with Glen Buxton, Michael Bruce, Dennis Dunaway and John Spear, formed a garage rock band. The group moved to LA and recruited a new member, Neal Smith. Calling themselves the Spiders, they were slammed by the critics as "the worst band in LA". Frank Zappa, however, liked their angry, upfront and dark music, and signed them up. In 1969, they changed their name to Alice Cooper (the name of the witch doctor who spoke to Furnier via an ouija board) and released 'Pretties For You' and 'Easy Action'. In 1971, they were signed by Warner Bros., and their next album, 'Love It to Death', launched them into the best selling charts. Then followed a whole string of hit albums including 'Killer' (1972), 'School's Out'(1972), 'Billion Dollar Babies'(1973) and 'Musc ...
Number 50 Alice Cooper with Billion Dollar Babies. So from this you can probably read at least some of the names in my top five.
Trudy and I began our trifecta of concerts that we'll be seeing over the next ten days by seeing the maestro of shock rock at the venerable Queen Elizabeth Theatre last night. It was an evening to "Raise The Dead", and Alice Cooper put on an amazing theatrical production that had the sold-out crowd standing from the moment the band came on stage. Every song was a classic, through Welcome To My Nightmare, Hello Horray, Feed My Frankenstein, I'm Eighteen, Caffine, Billion Dollar Babies, Poison, to the finale of School's Out, the entire evening was a kick start for the heart. I weep for the youth of today that have to grow up listening to Justin Bieber and American Idols! Alice has a stunningly beautiful lead guitarist who is a Greek Australian named Orianthi Panagaris. Very talented, she was Michael Jackson's lead guitarist on his "This Is It" concert series, and she has also played with Carlos Santana, Prince, Steve Vai and Carrie Underwood. She certainly provided an additional focal point to the st ...

I have all my Ron Swanson stuff ready, and I'm really excited about DragonCon tomorrow (especially the "Remembering Billion Dollar Babies" event with Alice Cooper).
Wow, talk about a step back in time. Went to a Made In New York Festival in Sackett's Harbor and saw Blue Coupe (made up of 2 members from Blue Oyster Cult and 1 from Alice Cooper's band) and Edgar Winter Group. Heard School's Out, Billion Dollar Babies, a few other Alice classics and Godzilla, Don't Fear the Reaper and other BOC standards. We didn't stay for all of Edgar, but did hear Tobacco Road and Frankenstein. We left before he played Free Ride.
Happy 4th to all you Billion Dollar Babies!
Excerpt from David Bailey documentary featuring Alice Cooper photo shoots for Vogue and the chart topping 1973 'Billion Dollar Babies' album.
Finally saw the Dark Shadows movie--Alice Cooper was DEFINITELY the high point of the film. The movie was set in 1972. However, the song "No More Mr. Nice Guy" didn't come out until 1973 on the Billion Dollar Babies album.

A video of "sick things" and with the original band of Alice Cooper's Sick Things as the song, which was released in 1973 on the Billion Dollar Babies album.
Thanks to the film Dark Shadows I have Alice Cooper on my mind. I was 10 when Billion Dollar Babies was released, and I remember hanging out at my buddy Todd Carmichael's house listening to this brilliant rock record over and over again; it was so groundbreaking it's impossible to describe it in 2012: it mixed macabre themes with driving metal guitars and Beatlesque melodies, and of course out front was Alice, without a doubt the greatest live Rock & Roll performer ever. I first saw his show in 1976 or 1977 in Terre Haute at the Hulman Center; it was, to say the least, a bit of a freak out but also totally hilarious (due to, you know, my "altered state," wink-wink), about as much fun as I have ever had at a live rock show. So of course in Dark Shadows when Alice makes his appearance, I was singling along and tears welled up in my eyes. I love Rock & Roll, and Alice is still a rock god in my eyes. Sometimes I'm just 10 again.
