It’s like a real life Antiques Roadshow episode.
I found this old painting in a storage locker and discovered it’s worth millions!
That’s exactly what happened to Alice Cooper. He found an original Andy Warhol rolled up and tucked away with some band equipment.
Hi then girl friend, Cindy Lang, bought the artwork for $2500 and wanted to give it to Cooper for his birthday.
This was during his drugs and drinking days; Cooper eventually ended up in rehab and the the art work was pretty much forgotten about.
Flash ahead quite a few years…Shep Gordon, Alice Cooper’s long time manager, saw that another Warhol sold in 2014 for 10.5 million.
He called up Alice and said “you still got that Andy Warhol electric chair?”
He went looking and sure enough, they found it rolled up in a poster tube along with some ancient concert touring equipment.
