Profession: Musician, Guitar and vocals ~ Mercury Rising

Background: Born into an upper middle class family and raised in a very loving home. Attended a prestigious university along with childhood friends Slim Savage, Heydon Mitchell, and Aiden O'Malley where they formed the band Mercury Rising. Shortly before their meteoric rise to fame, they replaced their original drummer with Daniel Whitney. After their first record went double platinum, Cooper founded Hitman Records with co-owner Slim Savage. Cooper is considered the premier rock guitarist of his time. Some even say he is a legend. Imaginative, creative, sensual and seductive, he can be temperamental at times.

Cooper's first marriage, a union he impulsively made after knowing Julia for less than a week, fell into pieces after a long separation. Struggling with trauma and physical and emotional injuries, he couldn't find the support he desperately needed and felt trapped and overwhelmed with Julia's need for constant reassurance. He walked out, leaving her with a small child, and although he tried to forge a bond with his son Wyatt, the relationship was bitter and broken. He met his second wife when he literally hit her with his bike when she was crossing the street.  Although neither of them immediately remembered the occasion, they'd met before as very young teens on a beach at night. The relationship is volatile, passionate, intense, and loving.

The provocative and sexually suggestive print from Cooper's first photoshoot after his second marriage.  Cooper is notoriously private, but unlike other his other personal photos, he distributed this as a part of a small set including a few performance shots.  There was speculation that he wanted to end rumors that he intended to return to his first wife, and distributing this photograph was part of that effort.


From a series of private family photos taken as a present for wife.


Cooper's first wife, Julia Wilson, a love match that did not survive the long separation, mutual emotional damage and Cooper's physical and mental trauma.
