Alice Cooper involved in car accident in Phoenix

Alice Cooper reveals that he was involved in a car accident in his longtime hometown of Phoenix, AZ on February 1.

"Had a car accident this afternoon in Phoenix, but luckily everyone walked away UNHURT,” tweeted the rocker hours after the incident. “Very thankful for that and also to Dodge for building such a sturdy Challenger!!"

No further details regarding the accident are available at this time.

At a young age, the Detroit, MI native moved to Phoenix, where he attended high school and formed The Spiders in 1964; most of the group eventually grew into the Alice Cooper Band, who went to release their debut album, “Pretties For You”, in 1969.

Cooper is currently gearing up for a spring tour of North America in support of his latest album, “Paranormal.”

Billed as "A Paranormal Evening With Alice Cooper", the month-long run will begin in Windsor, ON on March 1 and wrap up in Indianapolis, IN on March 29.

Cooper’s 27th album, “Paranormal” reunites the rocker with producer Bob Ezrin and includes guest appearances by U2 drummer Larry Mullen Jr., ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons and Deep Purple bassist Roger Glover.

The package also includes a bonus disc consisting of six live tracks recorded last year in Columbus, OH with Cooper’s current touring lineup and two brand new songs written and recorded together with original Alice Cooper Band members Dennis Dunaway, drummer Neal Smith and guitarist Michael Bruce.
