Vincent Damon Furnier, better known by his stage name Alice Cooper, has been announced earlier today as a nominee for the 2018 Songwriter Hall of Fame class.
"The Godfather of Shock Rock" as fans have come to know him throughout the many years, has had a catalog of influential hits such as “I’m Eighteen” and “School’s Out” as well as others like “Elected” and “No More Mister Nice Guy.” Back in 2011 the metal legend was also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Notable collaborators of Mr. Cooper include actor Johnny Depp, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry, Hanoi Rocks guitarist Andy McCoy, and Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl, who, not surprisingly, are all coincidentally notable fans.
December 17 is the announced deadline for voting members to cast their ballot. The 2018 Songwriter Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony is set for New York City, NY on June 14, 2018.
