With everyone from Sean “Diddy” Combs and Pete Wentz to Gwen Stefani and Hilary Duff designing clothes, a fashion line seems par for the course for enterprising musicians these days. But this was not the case in December 1971 when notorious rocker Alice Cooper divulged his sartorial aspirations to WWD. “The 15-year-old kids who come to our concerts don’t identify with Thirties movie star drag queen dressing. They prefer our Space Age bisexual clothes,” Cooper told the Eye, which also dispatched a photographer to shoot him in his hotel room (playing with a snake) and at a celebratory concert.
