Whether it was cutting off his own head on stage with a guillotine, or false rumours that he bit the head of a chicken live on stage, his theatrical shows caused a scandal in the early 1970s. Thirty albums later and with 50 million records sold, first as the Alice Cooper band and later as the solo act, he's given us classic rock anthems like "I'm Eighteen", "School's Out" and "Billion Dollar Babies". Alice Cooper speaks to Eve Jackson from his home in Arizona about his rallying anthem "Don't Give Up", shock-rocking audiences for five decades and that chicken incident.
