Biography

Mike Bruce (born Michael Owen Bruce on 16 March 1948) is a US rock musician. He was a guitarist, keyboard player and backing vocalist for the original Alice Cooper group (Vincent Furnier aka Alice Cooper / Michael Bruce / Glen Buxton / Dennis Dunaway / Neal Smith).

Bruce co-wrote many of the hit songs with some or all of the other members of the band. There are several Bruce-only songs including “Be My Lover from Killer. Bruce also sang lead vocal on the majority of “Sing Low, Sweet Cheerio” on the first album Pretties for You and all of “Below Your Means” and “Beautiful Flyaway” on the follow-up Easy Action, prior to the band’s breakthrough album Love It to Death on the Warner Bros label, the first Alice Cooper album produced by Bob Ezrin. The Alice Cooper group broke up in 1974.

“Billion Dollar Babies” was the name of the band founded by Michael Bruce, Mike Marconi, Dennis Dunaway, Bob Dolin, and Neal Smith after they split from Alice Cooper in 1974. This band was embroiled in a legal suit over the use of the name. They only released one album, 1977’s Battleaxe, before disbanding.

Bruce still tours with his own band and has some solo records out, as well as a live CD, Halo Of Ice. His current group, The Michael Bruce Group, performing some Alice Cooper classics as well as a few from his solo album Michael Bruce, In My Own Way, The Complete Sessions, features Bruce (guitars and vocals), Bob Russell (guitars and vocals), Tommy Dominick (bass and keyboards) and Bob Allen (drums).
