Alice Cooper Finds “Little Electric Chair”, Andy Warhol Original in Storage

Just another day for a rockstar, Alice Cooper found an original Andy Warhol silkscreen print “rolled up in a tube” in his storage, according to The Guardian. Titles “Little Electric Chair” could be worth millions today and it was part of Warhol’s Death and Disasters series. The print had been sitting in the storage room for over 40 years, next to Cooper’s electric chair stage prop from the 70s, obivously.

Warhol and Cooper became friends in the Seventies in New York City, according to Cooper’s  manager Shep Gordon

“Andy was kind of a groupie, and so was Alice. They loved famous people. So they started a relationship, and they loved to hang out.”

But according to reports it was model Cindy Lang, Cooper’s girlfriend at the time, who purchased the “Little Electric Chair” print from Warhol.

The found print is unsigned, but expert Richard Polsky approved the piece as authentic, Lang paid $2,500 in 1972 and in 2015 another “Little Electric Chair” sold in auction for $11.6 million.

According to Rolling Stone Cooper did not want to hang the piece in his home when he found out the estimate.
