New Alice Cooper biography “Alice Cooper @ 75” by Gary Graff

    Alice Cooper @ 75" by Gary Graff book

    As a kid, I loved Alice Cooper. I had this cool paperback about Alice Cooper. What is there not to love about Alice Cooper, his music still has a special place in my mind and soul. Early on Alice and his entourage did everything to unnerve the parents of the time with great success. Every publicity his agent could find to sell records and put butts on seats created the legend of Alice Cooper. I am a big fan of the @75 series. The addition of Alice Cooper as told by Gary Graff is a bonus to me as a fan. It is about time Alice Cooper gets a book treatment like this.

    Pythons, guillotines, stage blood…Alice Cooper is widely considered the godfather of shock rock thanks to his inventive concoction of vaudeville, horror film conceits, and three-chord rock ’n’ roll. In Alice Cooper at 75, veteran rock journalist Gary Graff shows you this rock icon through the lens of 75 career accomplishments, events, and partnerships:
