The Motion Sick: Metal Mondays: Alice Cooper

More theatrical fake-blood rock than metal, but hey, Alice Cooper is a swell guy.  My understanding is that the original deal was a band called the “Alice Cooper Band,” which eventually (d)evolved into just one dude with some backing music makers.  He then adopted the name Alice Cooper for himself.  That’s what I recall.  Someone else can fact-check it for me.  I also recall a similar game with Marilyn Manson.  I believe that the fellow was originally known simply as “Mr. Manson,” but eventually adopted the name of the band as his own moniker.  Now you’ve got two things to fact-check.  Anyway, as with all metal, hard rock, and music in general…you can never get out unless you sell out!
