(ALICE COOPER/CNN) - Alice cooper found a long-lost treasure he got from the legendary Andy Warhol.

It had been collecting dust in storage for four decades.

The rock star and the artist were long-time friends.

Cooper got the silkscreen art piece, called "Little Electric Chair," as a birthday present in the 1970's.

At the time, the rocker used a mock electric chair as part of his stage show.

Cooper's then-girlfriend is said to have paid about 2,500 dollars for the painting, but there's no telling what it's worth now.

Warhol's work is among the most expensive art in the world, some pieces selling for over $10 million.

For now, Cooper plans to hang this in his home and enjoy it for a while.
