Alice Cooper To Join Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame

The Detroit-born Alice Cooper, whose real name is Vincent Damon Furnier, will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s Class of 2011, according to the New York Times. Cooper, who grew up mostly in Arizona before heading back to metro Detroit in the 1970s, wowed audiences with his gore-laden stage shows — featuring guillotines, fake blood, mutilated dolls and slippery snakes– throughout the 1970s and ’80s.

His classic hits singles like “Eighteen,” “Schools Out”, and  “No More Mr. Nice Guy”  are heard regularly on Classic Hits 98.7 WFGR. 
62-year-old Alice Cooper will be inducted with Neil Diamond, Tom Waits, Darlene Love and Dr. John during a ceremony March 14 at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in New York City, according to the Times. An official announcement from the hall is expected today.

Nominees who didn’t make the cut this year include the Beastie Boys, Bon Jovi, J. Geils Band and Donna Summer.
