Alice Cooper recalls recent car accident in Phoenix

Alice Cooper is recalling the details of a recent car accident in his longtime hometown of Phoenix, AZ in a new interview with the city's KPNX 12 News.

The February 1 incident happened just three days before the rocker’s 70th birthday.

"I got in a head-on car collision," explains Cooper. "But nobody was hurt - both cars were demolished, but nobody was hurt. And I told the kid that ran into me, I told him, I said, 'Look, as long as you're walking away and I'm walking away, cars could be replaced.' We got banged up a litte bit, but nothing really special."

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

Cooper – who recently completed the spring 2018 leg of a North American tour in support of his latest album, “Paranormal” – has extended the trek with the release of newly-announced summer tour dates that will begin at the Wisconsin State Fair on August 3.

Ahead of the series, the singer will be on the road with The Hollywood Vampires for shows in North America and Europe in May and June.
