My point is more that I would expect your average Alice Cooper fan to know that stuff, and clearly it's not Alice Cooper fans who come to Alice Cooper concerts.
And people should know who Arthur Brown is, regardless of their liking of his music. Especially people old enough to have been around when he was popular and on the radio. I would always be surprised to meet anyone who hasn't heard "I am the god of Hellfire, and I bring you...".
There will always be far more casual fans than die hard fans. It's like that for pretty much any popular band out there, so I don't see why you're surprised by this.
