Alice Cooper (real name: Vincent Damon Furnier) is an American singer, songwriter, and actor and his career spans more than 50 years. He is considered to be "The Godfather of Shock Rock" thanks to his stage show and distinctive raspy voice.

Alice Cooper usess a lot of props during his shows and concerts, which include electric chairs, fake blood, guillotines, baby dolls, dueling swords and deadly snakes.

But, don't let this stage and metal performance mistakes you, as Alice Cooper is known to be a very sociable and witty person offstage. The Rolling Stone Album Guide even called Cooper the world's most "beloved heavy metal entertainer" and our interesting fact of the day actually demonstrates his great personality.

During Alice Cooper's heyday, he was recording at a studio in Toronto, Canada. Across the street, there as a Mrs. Reeves satying and she had to leave her son "Kee" unattended at home every day for up to 3 hours while she worked.

Realizing this, Alice Cooper offered to look after "Kee", the boy across the street, at the studio where he was recording. That boy grew up to become none other than the actor Keanu Reeves.
