Biography

American musician who was a guitarist for the Alice Cooper band. An original member, from 1965, with Michael Bruce, Dennis Dunaway, Neal Smith and finally Vincent Furnier (Alice Cooper) that grew up together in the Phoenix, AZ area forming a schoolmate band. They relocated to Hollywood in 1968, playing under the name of Nazz, changing to the moniker "Alice Cooper" after finding that the east coast had a band under the name of Nazz.

The group's first big break came with linking up with Frank Zappa and their manager-to-be, Shep Gordon. From 1970 they were noted as being the worst band in LA and decided to move to Detroit. In 1971 they signed with Warner Bros. Records and started hitting the top 20 charts. The band reached the UK charts in 1972 and their highly-theatrical show was massively successful. In 1974, Cooper fired his original band members and replaced them with other musicians; the same year that a 13-year old teen accidentally hanged himself on the mock scaffolding of the stage.

Died of complications from pneumonia in Clarion, Iowa on 19 October 1997, age 49.
