Alice Cooper has released several albums that he has no memory of making.  I'm not surprised if he's forgotten a piece of art he bought in the 70s.

Especially considering the company he kept

Yeah, a whole stack of 'em... and it took at least 30/40 minutes to break 'em down and stuff 'em in the recycle bin.

Those are not cushions, they are all the various panties thrown on stage during the 1972 "School's Out" tour.

Warhol would agree with you too

And that would just elevate the scam into art

Well, I think he was a talented, if overrated, commercial artist.  His album covers, pre- pop art are all right, if not too remarkable.  If he hadn't had ideas about the nature of popular art (and been able to 'sell' them), he probably would've been long forgotten, though.

I think I saw an installation at the Dali museum in St Petersburg FL that featured Alice Cooper in an early hologram.

Alice has a thing for artists.

Art critics are some of the most untalented assholes you'll ever have the pleasure of tossing off a bridge.

He was certainly no Art Frahm.

Considering it's Alice Cooper, many people, not me, may have thought that specification was necessary.
