Alice Cooper - His golf handicap is 4

Alice Cooper name idea - English_ouija_boardHard rock band and/or singer (pseudonym of Vincent Furnier), both can look back on a long musical career.

The name comes from the desire of the band from Detroit, Michigan to create the strongest possible contrast between its reputation (loud, crude, crazy, even sick) and a name to bring all this out into the open. ‘Alice Cooper' had a sufficiently innocent ring to it: it evokes the image of a schoolgirl with a ponytail, or a little old lady dozing in church.

There are fans who do not accept this explanation. They maintain that ‘Vince' used a Ouija board (see the picture, pronounced as weedyah board), a primitive looking tool that makes it possible to ask questions during a séance that are answered by the subliminal self.

Alice Cooper aka Vince Furnier is also said to be – it's getting a bit weird now – the reincarnation of a witch burnt at the stake in the 17th or 18th century.

Not everyone warms up for this, as can be inferred from a fan's reaction: ‘He has been married for more than 20 years and he has 3 children. He spends all his free time playing golf. His handicap is 4.'

Active: 1968-present, USA
