Before They Were Stars: Alice Cooper Performs as The Spiders

It’s always amusing to find early recordings from famous musicians and discovering that they once performed a different style of music than what they’re known for. During his teen years, before he developed his shock rock persona, the future Alice Cooper was still known by his birth name, Vincent Furnier, and he and some of his future bandmates decided to form a group called The Spiders. The band’s music was mostly inspired by The Beatles and they released a few singles during the 1960s. The Spiders had just graduated from high school when they recorded this 1966 single, “No Price Tag”, which bears very little resemblance to the iconic Alice Cooper music you know and love.
