Alice Cooper

Alice Cooper has no regrets about changing his first name from the more masculine Vince, insisting it was one of the best decisions he has ever made.

The veteran rocker - born Vincent Furnier - legally renamed himself in the late 1960s but admits his mother Ella Mae still cannot get used to the idea.

"That was one of the brilliant moments of my life," he said. "At this point, Alice Cooper is woven into Americana.

"My mum's the only one to still call me Vince. She says: 'Hey, superstar, take out the trash'."
