    "Little Electric Chair" print was "rolled up in a tube," could be worth millionsAlice Cooper discovered an Andy Warhol silkscreen print that could be worth millions of dollars "rolled up in a tube" in a storage locker, The Guardian reports. The "Little Electric Chair" print was part of Warhol's Death and Disaster series and, coincidentally, had been laying around a facility for over 40 years alongside Cooper's Seventies-era electric chair stage prop. Cooper and Warhol became friends in the early Seventies after the rocker moved to New York City. Warhol even came to one of Cooper's concerts where he used...

    He has been called the godfather of shock-rock, mixing elements of horror movies into acts that have included an unpalatable array of guillotines, fake blood, baby dolls and boa constrictors. Yet many would be surprised to learn of his Christian roots and his homecoming to the faith after sowing his oats as the ultimate prodigal.My father was a pastor and my grandfather was an evangelist, actually both were evangelists, Cooper told the Harvest Show. I grew up in the church and all my friends were church kids. I had so much fun. I was in church Sunday, Wednesday night, Friday...

    My homepage is’t judge.)On December 27, one of their headlines blared, in all caps, “Why Alice Cooper Doesn’t Believe in ‘Celebrity Christianity’”.I thought: What year is it?“Born again Alice” is old news.Back in the “emerging church” 1990s, when Protestants were trying to get hip (again), a rash of magazines appeared. Critics called them “skate park outreach” and they all had semi-tough names like Relevant and Relate. (And lots and lots and LOTS of U2 stories…)In one of them, I read an interview with Cooper, in which he unequivocally took the standard-issue evangelical line that Mother Teresa’s good works...

    Alice Cooper, the shock-rock megastar who makes Marilyn Manson look like a choir boy, stopped his hard-partying ways and returned to his Bible Christian roots in the late 1980s and today, still hugely popular and touring, says he isnt shy about discussing his faith, says his early songs always warned against choosing evil, and contends that the world we live in doesnt belong to us, it belongs to Satan. The world doesnt belong to us, it belongs to Satan, said Alice Cooper. Were living with that. Were bombarded with that every day. [A]lmost everything I wrote was good and evil,...

    Detroit Mayor Dave Bing has defended the fire department for its response to what he described as "a natural disaster" after wind-whipped flames destroyed dozens of homes across the city. Asked at a news conference Wednesday whether the department was adequately staffed, Bing said it was important to point out that nobody was killed. Fire Commissioner James Mack says the department is budgeted for about 500 firefighters, about 20 fewer positions than last year. He says the 236 on duty Tuesday is typical. Eight of the 85 fires Tuesday were related to downed power wires, two were arson. Mack says...

    The stage shows of American rock musician, Alice Cooper seek to shock and provoke. Indeed the reborn Christian will not show the mastery of evil, rather his fans will be shown the finality of Heaven and Hell. The concert of the US-American rock musician Alice Cooper has shocking and provoking elements like scenes of torture and execution scenes. Indeed, Alice Cooper is Christian and wants his fans to think about the reality of Heaven and Hell. He said this in an interview with the "Cologne City Informer". He was born in 1948 as Vincent Furnier in a Christian family and...

    Veteran American singer Alice Cooper's concert scheduled for Tampere in December has been shifted to Espoo because of concerns over his shock-rock image.

The contract which we received from Tampere Arena specifies that no artists may perform there who 'incite evil and the power of darkness'," promoter Kalle Keskinen...

"I vote for the person, not the party. [As for U.S. Vice President hopeful Sarah Palin], I think she's totally a breath of fresh air.

    Politics might be the top water-cooler conversation this week, but dont expect to hear it coming over the airwaves from shock-rocker Alice Cooper, whose syndicated radio show has been picked up by Bostons WZLX-FM. I dont do politics. Hate politics, said Cooper, who said rock and politics dont mix. Rock n roll is entertainment. Since when do we rockers know anything about politics? Cooper, 58, was a guest DJ early yesterday at WZLX (100.7), where his syndicated radio show, Nights with Alice Cooper, now airs on Saturday nights. The granddad of theatrical metal performed at the Orpheum Sunday and ends...

The $3 million center Cooper is establishing with Grand Canyon University in Phoenix will be similar to a Boys Club with a school of rock and roll, a concert hall and sports activities -- except all will have a Christian thrust, the Arizona Republic reported Tuesday. The United States "needs a good hypodermic needle shot of morality," said Cooper, the 58-year-old born-again son...

    Shock-rock legend Alice Cooper is now clarifying his "treason" remarks concerning rock stars campaigning for Democrat John Kerry. He wants to stress the artists are committing treason against rock 'n' roll not the United States, the government or the presidency. Cooper was thrust into the worldwide media spotlight last week after the Canadian Press published comments from the 56-year-old rocker who said he was disgusted to learn the likes of Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp, R.E.M., Sheryl Crow, James Taylor and Dave Matthews were hitting the road for a series of concerts designed to help defeat President Bush.
