Pubblicità

Alice Cooper, pseudonimo di Vincent Damon Furnier , è un cantante e attore statunitense, tra i personaggi più controversi e discussi nella storia del rock.

I suoi concerti sono macabri e cruenti, ma allo stesso tempo molto spettacolari. Le sue performance live sono famose per la presenza di elementi scenici come ghigliottine, bambole impalate e il famigerato boa attorcigliato al collo, oltre che per il caratteristico corpse paint, trucco facciale dalle sembianze "cadaveriche". Cooper è infatti considerato tra i più importanti esponenti del cosiddetto shock rock, un genere che prevede appunto esibizioni di questo tipo.

I suoi testi contengono spesso elementi ispirati dalla narrativa horror; tuttavia, nell'ampia produzione dell'artista si trovano brani sugli argomenti più diversi, inclusi temi di ampio respiro come la libertà di espressione, la religione e i problemi legati alla società statunitense.

È in piena attività e vanta una carriera quarantennale. La sua musica e la sua presenza scenica hanno avuto un notevole influsso su vari artisti shock rock venuti dopo come GG Allin, Rob Zombie, W.A.S.P., Marilyn Manson, Lizzy Borden, King Diamond, Death SS, Slipknot, Lordi, GWAR, Twisted Sister, Mötley Crüe, Murderdolls e Wednesday 13.

Frasi Alice Cooper

„She cries alone at night too often
He smokes and drinks and don't come home at all.
Only women bleed...“

—  Alice Cooper
Context: Man's got his woman to take his seed He's got the power — oh She's got the need She spends her life through pleasing up her man She feeds him dinner or anything she can. She cries alone at night too often He smokes and drinks and don't come home at all. Only women bleed... "Only Women Bleed" (co-written with Dick Wagner) - Lyrics online http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=3929.

„If it's total freedom, I guess the ultimate thing you can go into is total silence between the audience and performer, with the performer projecting something he doesn't even have to play.“

—  Alice Cooper
Context: We can only take it so far, because man can only take it so far, lower self can only take it so far, and you have to realize that the public is only at a certain place. We won't see the day when the public accepts what we wanna project, even though they are accepting a lot now. By the time they're accepting it, maybe they'll be too old.... If it's total freedom, I guess the ultimate thing you can go into is total silence between the audience and performer, with the performer projecting something he doesn't even have to play. A total silence trip is the ultimate.... We do antagonize them psychologically. People look at us and react. They either go "Wow! Hey-hey-hey, baby!" and we say that's great. They're reacting and that's wonderful. It's better than them sitting there doing nothing. I say make them react — do whatever's in your power to move the audience, and if that's where it is, and there where it is with America, sex and violence, then I say project it.

„I used to be such a sweet, sweet thing
'Til they got a hold of me.
I opened doors for little old ladies,
I helped the blind to see.“

—  Alice Cooper
Context: I used to be such a sweet, sweet thing 'Til they got a hold of me. I opened doors for little old ladies, I helped the blind to see. I got no friends 'cause they read the papers. They can't be seen with me and I'm gettin' real shot down And I'm feeling mean. No more Mister Nice Guy, No more Mister Clean, No more Mister Nice Guy, They say he's sick, he's obscene. "No More Mr. Nice Guy" (co-written with Michael Owen Bruce) - Full lyrics online http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=3596 - YouTube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZnhuOEUFXA.

„I'm very romantic, I'm extremely romantic. I date my wife.“

—  Alice Cooper
Context: I'm very romantic, I'm extremely romantic. I date my wife.... That's one thing guys don't understand. This is something that you would be very surprised that I understand, is that men are microwaves and women are pressure cookers. Men want sex, bang; women like romance. Guys, learn how to romance. Interview with Andrew Denton http://www.abc.net.au/tv/enoughrope/transcripts/s1396692.htm on Enough Rope (20 June 2005).

„Well we can't salute ya
Can't find a flag
If that don't suit ya
That's a drag School's out for summer
School's out forever
School's been blown to pieces.“

—  Alice Cooper
Context: Well we can't salute ya Can't find a flag If that don't suit ya That's a drag School's out for summer School's out forever School's been blown to pieces. "School's Out" - Lyrics online http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=596.

„From the moment I leave my house or my hotel room, the public owns me.“

—  Alice Cooper
Context: From the moment I leave my house or my hotel room, the public owns me. The public made Alice Cooper and I can't imagine ever turning my back on my fans. As quoted in Philadelphia Daily News (3 March 2006).

„I get onstage now with more attitude at fifty-seven than I had when I was twenty.“

—  Alice Cooper
Context: I get onstage now with more attitude at fifty-seven than I had when I was twenty. When I was twenty, my attitude was kind of like, "Yeah, yeah…I'm a big rock star." Now, when I get onstage, I go up there, and I am the Moriarty of rock. I am the consummate villain. I am the Hannibal Lector of rock, and I play it like that. Alice just seems like an arrogant bastard or villain who is making the audience feel as though they are lucky to be there when in reality that is exactly the opposite of my personality. With Alice though…it is great to play him or portray him as an Alan Rickman type character who is very condescending. That’s what makes him fun to watch — he's Captain Hook.

„Man's got his woman to take his seed
He's got the power — oh
She's got the need“

—  Alice Cooper
Context: Man's got his woman to take his seed He's got the power — oh She's got the need She spends her life through pleasing up her man She feeds him dinner or anything she can. She cries alone at night too often He smokes and drinks and don't come home at all. Only women bleed...

„No more Mister Nice Guy,
No more Mister Clean“

„People that haven't seen us yet are shocked because they think that Alice Cooper must be a female folksinger.“

—  Alice Cooper
Context: People that haven't seen us yet are shocked because they think that Alice Cooper must be a female folksinger. They don't expect the whole thing. And the whole thing is a direct product of television and movies and America, 'cause that's where America's based. That's where their heart is from the sex and violence of TV and the movies, and that was our influence.

„When you believe in God, you've got to believe in the all-powerful God.“

—  Alice Cooper
Context: When you believe in God, you've got to believe in the all-powerful God. He's not just God, He's the all-powerful God and He has total control over everyone's life. The Devil, on the other hand, is a real character that's trying his hardest to tear your life apart. If you believe that this is just mythology, you're a prime target because you know that's exactly what Satan wants: To be a myth. But he's not a myth, of this I'm totally convinced. More than anything in the world, I'm convinced of that. Interview with Donald L. Hughes (22 April 2006).

„It's so funny that people think I actually ran for President. I am maybe the most un-political person you're ever going to meet.“

—  Alice Cooper
Context: It's so funny that people think I actually ran for President. I am maybe the most un-political person you're ever going to meet. When I put "Elected" out, it was definitely a satire... "Alice Cooper for President"... when everybody realized I was running against Nixon, you known, even on a joke level, I think I got a lot of write-in votes. Kingsnake podcast interview http://club.kingsnake.com/index.php?/archives/66-Podcast-Interview-with-Alice-Cooper.html (26 May 2006).

„When I go onstage as Alice to this day, I play Alice to the hilt — I play him for everything he is worth, but when I’m offstage, I never think about Alice Cooper. He never occurs to me“

—  Alice Cooper
Context: In the early days when I was drinking... I had a very blurry line about where those two were... but I mean, that happens when you drink twenty-two hours a day. I would just sit and drink. I didn’t know whether or not I was supposed to be Alice when I went out for dinner and was a little lit. Then there was the question about whether or not I should wear the make up because I didn’t really want to disappoint anyone. Was I supposed to get into trouble? Was I supposed to get arrested that night? All of those questions went through my mind. You have to remember though who my older brothers and sisters were though--guys like Jim Morrison and Keith Moon and all the people who were living that life. After they all died, I just sat there and went, “if one generation is going to learn from the next the truth is going to have to be that you don’t have to die to be your character.” I figured then that I had better be able to separate the two. When I go onstage as Alice to this day, I play Alice to the hilt — I play him for everything he is worth, but when I’m offstage, I never think about Alice Cooper. He never occurs to me... I walk off stage though and I turn away from the audience, I go back to being me again. Whenever I see an audience, that’s when I turn into Alice. If there was no audience there, there would be no reason to be Alice.. If I tried to be Alice Cooper all the time — I’d either be in an insane asylum or in jail or dead. Alice is just too intense, and you just can’t be Alice all the time. Jim Morrison couldn’t be Jim Morrison, so he died. Jimi Hendrix couldn’t be Jimi Hendrix, so he died. That’s really what killed Janis Joplin, Keith Moon and all the way down the line. They were all animated characters who couldn’t live up to their lifestyle, so I said that I needed to be able to separate the two — that’s why I’m still here.
