The main focus of the original Alice Cooper band was understandably the group's shock rock singer Alice Cooper. But it was
the group's guitarist/keyboardist, Michael Bruce, who was the main musical force behind the group, co-writing the majority of
their tracks. Born on March 16, 1948, and raised in Arizona, Bruce took up the guitar during the early '60s after catching Elvison,
The Ed Sullivan Show and discovering such British Invasion acts as the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Yardbirds, and the Animals.
After doing time in a local cover outfit, the Duels, Bruce hooked up with another local band, the Spiders, who would later morph
into the Alice Cooper band. The band (singer Vincent Furnier, bassist Dennis Dunaway, guitarist Glen Buxton, and later, drummer Neal Smith)
relocated to Los Angeles in 1968, changed their name to the Nazz, and focused on more a more psychedelic rock sound (à la early Pink Floyd).
But when they found out there was another group going by the name the Nazz (featuring a then-unknown Todd Rundgren), they changed their
name to Alice Cooper, with Furnier assuming the role of a deranged and macabre figure and assumed the name Alice Cooper.
Neal Smith, drummer/percussionist, songwriter and founding member of one of the most successful rock and roll acts to be seen
and heard in the world: The Shock Rock Group Alice Cooper. The first band to introduce theatrics to the rock and roll stage,
