Alice Cooper to Be Inducted Into Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame
School may be out, but Alice Cooper is still at the top of the class. Alice Cooper is among the members of the class of 2011 to be inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame next year. The shock rocker, born Vincent Damon Furnier, built his reputation on his theatrical, fake-blood-soaked live shows, which included guillotines, electric chairs, dolls, snakes and other gory props, paving the way for acts like Marilyn Manson. He is also known for hits like ‘School’s Out,’ ‘No More Mr. Nice Guy’ and ‘Eighteen.’
Cooper, 62, will be inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame alongside the likes of Neil Diamond, Tom Waits and Dr. John, during a ceremony that will take place March 14 at New York City’s Waldorf-Astoria hotel.
So, who wasn’t chosen for induction into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame alongside Alice Cooper? Bon Jovi, the Beastie Boys and the J. Geils Band, to name a few. Oh well, there’s always next year.
Congrats to Alice Cooper for making the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame a little bit bloodier.
