De voorbije jaren verschenen Led Zeppelin (Celebration Day) en Metallica (Through The Never) al in de bioscoop. Binnenkort zal ook shock rock legende Alice Cooper op het witte doek te zien zijn want de documentaire Super Duper Alice Cooper verschijnt binnenkort in de bioscoop.

De trailer van Super Duper Alice Cooper kun je hieronder bekijken. De documentaire gaat over de opkomst van de priesterszoon Vincent Furnier en zijn transformatie tot megaster Alice Cooper. De documentaire duurt 97 minuten en werd gemaakt door Sam Dunn en Scot McFadyen die eerder de documentaires Metal: A Headbangers Journey en Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage produceerden.

Alice Cooper is de grondlegger van het shock rock genre en vierde al vroeg in zijn carriere grote successen met albums als Killer, School’s Out, Muscle Of Love en Billion Dollar Babies . Hij joeg conservatief Amerika op de kast met zijn vreemde teksten en buitennissige gedrag op het podium met guillotines, elektrische slangen en boa constrictors.

De makers verwoordden het als volgt: “Super Duper Alice Cooper” is the twisted tale of a teenage Dr. Jekyll whose rock and roll Mr. Hyde almost kills him. It is the story of Vincent Furnier, preacher’s son, who struck fear into the hearts of parents as Alice Cooper, the ultimate rock star of the bizarre. From the advent of Alice as frontman for a group of Phoenix freaks in the ’60s to the hazy decadence of celebrity in the ’70s to his triumphant comeback as ’80s glam metal godfather, we will watch as Alice and Vincent battle for each other’s souls. The film is the first-ever “doc opera” — a dizzying blend of documentary archive footage, animation and rock opera that will cement forever the legend of Alice Cooper.”

Op de vraag waarom Alice, antwoordde men: “He’s a pretty fascinating character, who has been through a lot in his life. He’s one of those musicians that maybe he hasn’t had a hit in a long time, but everyone knows who Alice Cooper is because of his influence on pop culture and the big songs he had in the ’70s. So it’s really the story of Alice’s career from the ’60s right up to the ’80s and everything he went through — the ups and the downs, battles with alcoholism, being raised in a Christian family, rebelling against that but then coming back to faith later in his career, and moving from town to town, and trying to find his place.”
