Greatest Rock Solo Artists
The Top Ten
1 Alice Cooper
Alice Cooper is an American singer, songwriter, musician and occasional actor whose career spans over five decades.
The greatest live performer in the history of hard rock music. Brought theatrics into music and still puts out really good albums and tours over six months every year. The man never ages. - likestorock78
The way Alice Cooper emotes with his voice is what I really enjoy the most. He can be gritty and then mellow. Some classic rock tunes and well as ballads.There are plenty of singers who have more range and power. However, Alice's ability to "act" with his voice makes him unique.
