Shock rocker Cooper visits Fairborn


FAIRBORN — Alice Cooper paid a surprise visit to some of the local businesses in Fairborn this week.

As he prepared for his Oct. 10 show in Troy, the 75-year-old shock rock singer and his wife, Sheryl, stopped by some of the city’s most famous Halloween-themed stores, including Foy’s Halloween and Variety Store, and The Secret Chamber House of Oddities and Artwork, both located on the downtown strip.

According to the Fairborn Facebook page, Cooper — born Vincent Damon Furnier — also stopped by the Bourbon Bayou Bistro and took pictures with each business that recognized him, even signing deli paper for his fans.

“I met Alice Cooper and it was AWESOME,” The Secret Chamber House of Oddities and Artwork posted on its Facebook page. “Thanks for coming and spending a moment with me.”

All three businesses also posted photos of Cooper and subsequently received several comments of excitement and jealousy.

Cooper had a plethora of hits including “School’s Out,” “I’m Eighteen,” “No More Mr. Nice Guy,” ”Poison,” and “Hey Stoopid.”
