Alice Cooper with facial hair and without his trademark black eyeliner (1975)

We know Alice Cooper as the black eyeliner wearing, snake charming shock rocker who with hits like “School’s Out For Summer” and “Welcome to My Nightmare,” but when he takes off the makeup he’s no longer Alice Cooper, he’s Vincent Damon Furnier.

However, in the 1970s nobody knew that under the makeup and all the theatrics that he was just a normal guy, especially when he was touring the south. Cooper says whenever he traveled through the south the shows were always chaotic, and usually quite frightening. He said:
