"We did some writing together back in the 80s for a movie and it happened to be at (manager) Shep Gordon's house, which was one of the most haunted houses ever... We both ran out of the house. We took off because it sounded like somebody moving furniture in the basement. Shep goes, 'Oh, they wrote The Amityville Horror there.' I went, 'Oh, thanks, that's information I could've used before.'" Alice Cooper and Joe Perry suffered a scare when working together in a haunted house.
