Snakes! Guillotines! Electric Chairs! : My Adventures in the Alice Cooper Band by Denis Dunaway, Chris Hodenfield

£16.95

When Alice Cooper became the stuff of legend in the early ’70s, their shows were monuments of fun and invention. Riding on a string of hits like “I’m 18” and “School’s Out,” they became America’s highest-grossing act, producing four platinum albums and hitting number one on the U.S. and U.K.

charts with Billion Dollar Babies in 1973. As teenagers in Phoenix, Dennis Dunaway and lead singer Vince Furnier, who would later change his name to Alice Cooper, formed a hard-knuckles band that played prisons, cowboy bars and teen clubs. Their journey took them from Hollywood to the ferocious Detroit music scene.

From struggling for recognition to topping the charts, the Alice Cooper group was entertaining, outrageous, and one-of-a-kind. Dennis Dunaway, the bassist and co-songwriter for the band, tells a story just as over-the-top crazy as their (in)famous shows. Snakes! Guillotines! Electric Chairs! is the riveting account of the band’s creation in the ’60s, strange glory in the ’70s, and the legendary characters they met along the way.
