I won this book through Goodreads First Reads.
As someone who wasn’t even born yet when the group Alice Cooper was coming about but have heard the hits all my life this book was quite an interesting read. I have to admit I’d always known Alice Cooper to be the man and not the band so it was nice to learn of how it all came about and the early days of the band that were known for the Shock Rock music scene and just how Vince became Alice.
The book starts off with the guys being just a bunch of regular high schoolers (if you can really picture Alice Cooper in high school) and takes you through all the early days. There’s mention of the sex and drugs etc through the years but it’s not overly covered. More of the shows, the struggles, and then onto the fame and the split of the group. Interesting reading how some of the most famous props and shows came about and then what happened to all the original members since those days.
There’s also a lot of mention of other bands and artists that the group met and were popular or upcoming in the same time frame. A good read for rock fans.
