Read full description of the books:
I'm a huge fan of almost all Alice Cooper's music, but I honestly don't care much for Alice Cooper the man until sometime in the mid-90's. If nothing else, this book shows how much Alice has matured in the intervening years. These days, Alice is something of an enigma--his stage persona is completely opposite from his real-life personality. In ME, ALICE, however, Alice portrays himself as being just the sort of debauched rock personality that his conservative-minded critics made him out to be.
This book is long out-of-print, and it's pretty easy to see why. No doubt the present-day Alice Cooper is embarrassed and possibly shamed by his 1970's counterpart. ME, ALICE is a vapid, self-indulgent account of rock star excess. While the present-day Alice Cooper is known for demonstrating admirable restraint in both his professional and personal lives, the Alice Cooper of the 1970's can't wait to inform readers of his peculiar masturbatory habits and share with them intricate details of his boob-fondling experiences as a teenager. The quality of writing in this book varies from childish to awful, so I was surprised to see that Alice had worked on it with a co-author.
Now that Alice has released a much more current and readable autobiography (entitled GOLF MONSTER), there is very little reason to invest your time in ME, ALICE.
And I say that as a huge Alice Cooper fan who went into the book expecting to love it.

Read information about the authorAlice Cooper (born Vincent Damon) is an American rock singer, songwriter and broadcaster whose career spans more than five decades. With a stage show that features guillotines, electric chairs, fake blood, boa constrictors and baby dolls, Cooper has drawn equally from horror movies, vaudeville, and garage rock to pioneer a grandly theatrical and violent brand of heavy metal that was designed to shock.
Alice Cooper was originally a band consisting of Furnier on vocals and harmonica, lead guitarist Glen Buxton, Michael Bruce on rhythm guitar, Dennis Dunaway on bass guitar, and drummer Neal Smith. The original Alice Cooper band broke into the international music mainstream with the 1971 hit "I'm Eighteen" from the album Love it to Death, which was followed by the even bigger single "School's Out" in 1972. The band reached their commercial peak with the 1973 album Billion Dollar Babies.
Furnier's solo career as Alice Cooper, adopting the band's name as his own name, began with the 1975 concept album Welcome to My Nightmare. In 2008 he released Along Came a Spider, his 18th solo album. Expanding from his original Detroit rock roots, over the years Cooper has experimented with many different musical styles, including conceptual rock, art rock, glam metal, hard rock, new wave, pop rock, soft rock, experimental rock, heavy metal, and industrial rock. In recent times he has returned more to his garage rock roots.
Alice Cooper is known for his social and witty persona offstage, The Rolling Stone Album Guide going so far as to refer to him as the world's most "beloved heavy metal entertainer". He helped to shape the sound and look of heavy metal, and has been credited as being the person who "first introduced horror imagery to rock'n'roll, and whose stagecraft and showmanship have permanently transformed the genre". Away from music, Cooper is a film actor, a golfing celebrity, a restaurateur and, since 2004, a popular radio DJ with his classic rock show Nights with Alice Cooper.
On VH1's "100 Greatest artists of Hard Rock", Cooper was ranked #20.
