It's fair to say that Vincent Furnier made musical history when he became Alice Cooper; an androgynous shock rocker who spent his teenage years pursuing a career in rock, and certainly not following in his preacher father's footsteps. From his inception, Alice Cooper went against the grain of what is accepted in modern music with over-the-top, gore-filled live shows which at one point saw a chicken get unwittingly murdered by his audience. However, the fun soon got out of hand when Alice Cooper and his band got fully submerged in the rock 'n' roll world of alcohol and drug abuse. Setting up the drinking club The Hollywood Vampires, Alice Cooper would be hospitalised more than once for his substance abuse issues, getting so obsessed with that world that he would not even be able to remember large chunks of his recording career.

The punk icon delivered the lecture titled “free music in a capitalist society”, on the 10th anniversary of the DJ’s death.
Punk icon Iggy Pop has criticised U2 for their free album give away, while also addressing the culture of file sharing during this year’s John Peel Lecture. Hosted by BBC Music, the annual lecture is held in memory of the late radio DJ who helped popularised punk music in Britain.
Iggy Pop gave this year's John Peel lecture
Speaking about the Irish band’s decision to give away free copies of their new album to to over 500 million iTunes customers, Pop said, “The people who don’t want the free U2 download are trying to say, ‘Don’t try to force me,’ and they’ve got a point. Part of the process when you buy something from an artist, it’s kind of an anointing, you are giving that person love.”
The Harry Potter star, all set to appear in the upcoming rom-com 'What If?' recently stated he wants to play Iggy Pop. But is this a match made in heaven, or a casting nightmare?
Following Daniel Radcliffe's recent announcement that he wouldn't mind playing the unpredictable and irrational Iggy Pop in a film, it's interesting to wonder whether Radcliffe could actually pull off the part of the drug-addled rock star.
Daniel Radcliffe admits there are similarities between him and Iggy Pop
The comment came from an interview with radio host Eric J Lawrence, in which Radcliffe stated "we've got a similar, gnarly sort of, slightly strange skinny bodies." Perhaps the twenty five year old's star power would be the perfect draw for an Iggy Pop film, as the last time Pop was portrayed on screen was by Foo Fighters drummer, Taylor Hawkins last year. The film, CBGB, received negative reviews, with review aggregate website Rotten Tomatoes rating the film only 6%.
