The master of shock rock and the founder of theatrical rock came to fame in the 1970s by combining timeless music and theatrical scenes. He was inspired by 1950s horror movies, and he enriched rock concerts with stage shows that featured guillotines, electric chairs, fake blood, snakes and baby dolls. The beginnings of his career weren’t easy. The intentions of this enthusiastic rocker, who first and foremost always wanted to entertain people, was clearly misunderstood. Many of the traditionally conventional disciples speculated about his artistic name and irritating stage presence. Luckily, the ability to rise above it all is one of ALICE COOPER’s greatest virtues, which probably played a major role as he overcame this period of disrespect and unsuccess. Nothing stopped or changed the vision of one of the most creative artists in showbusiness. ALICE COOPER is proof that the saying “the third time’s the charm” is real. His main breakthrough came with his third studio album “Love It to Death” in 1971, where he achieved his first commercial success thanks to the first single and successful hit “I’m Eighteen”. With the following “Killer” (1971), “School’s Out” (1972), Billion Dollar Babies (1973) and “Welcome to My Nightmare” (1975), ALICE COOPER confirmed his position on the music scene and nobody could deny his talent and contribution to the history of rock’n’roll any longer.
ALICE COOPER is one of the rare personalities who understood early enough the circle of life and all its circumstances. While talking to him, you can feel his natural respect for success in life as well as for the opposite side of it, very often considered to be failure. Instead of dramatic personal falls, he moved on to other, better work and never allowed anyone or any situation to kick him off his game. ALICE COOPER is a successful singer, songwriter as well as a respected actor. Many directors have cast him in their movies. He appeared, for example, in the horror classic “Prince of Darkness”, in part six of the Nightmare on Elm Street series and recently in the comedy-horror “Dark Shadows”. In 2011, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The remarkable life journey of this rock phenomenon has been captured in the Canadian biographical documentary the “Super Duper Alice Cooper” (2014). ALICE COOPER appeared as King Herod in the American musical television special “Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert” on Easter Sunday (April 1, 2018).
The COOPER legacy lives on with ALICE himself, but also with his beautiful daughter and extraordinarily talented artist, CALICO COOPER. She appeared onstage alongside her father for the first time at the age of 18 on his “Brutal Planet” world tour. Since then, CALICO has participated in several world tours with ALICE, has been working as a model and as an actress she excels in comedy and has gained a massive fan base in the horror industry. Currently, she is also a member of the rock band BEASTO BLANCO, fronted by the ALICE COOPER bass player and one of the most important persons in CALICO’s life: Chuck Garric. The successful and versatile artist became a slap in the face of many who often polemize about her success being caused mainly by the fact she is the daughter of a legendary rock icon. To clear up this confusion, I would say that without her talent, own potential and necessary ambition, she could have been named after whoever and it wouldn’t have worked out. I personally value her more for always being hard-working and for her desire to achieve something more than just the empty rock royalty life style she could without a doubt be living. There’s nothing wrong about using a famous name in a good way, and if possible there’s no one better for it than the daughter of a legend.
I sat down for several interviews with ALICE COOPER and even participated in two of his concerts, where I was the manager of the opening band. In my eyes, he is one of the greatest professionals as well as human beings you could ever work with or meet. he could become a coach for several rock stars and their teams and teach them how to treat people and what is the real meaning of the word professional. I also participated in the production of a BEASTO BLANCO show and got a great opportunity to spend some time with CALICO, who is a great person – a women with healthy self-confidence and clear attitude towards life with unlimited space for creati-vity and self-fulfillment. ALICE and CALICO are fortunate artists who live so that their work, but also their private lives, are all one big show and are cleverly using all the opportunities offered by life itself to make this world a better place for their family, friends, bandmates, colleagues and fan base.
