Alice Cooper is an American singer and performer, best known for the shock-rock antics and horror trappings of his 1970s live shows. He emerged as the frontman of namesake hard-rockers Alice Cooper, which charted with a string of 1971–73 Warner Bros. albums, including the hits “School’s Out,” “I’m Eighteen,” and “No More Mr. Nice Guy.”
His first official solo release, Welcome to My Nightmare, accompanied his most elaborate tour. After battling some personal problems, he modernized his sound for the 1980 release Flush the Fashion. In 1986, he scored a chart comeback with “He’s Back (The Man Behind the Mask),” the theme song to the sixth installment of the Friday the 13th series.
