Alice Cooper Joins Others for Arizona Benefit Concert

Browne, Cooper to play benefit in Tucson, Arizona

TUCSON, Arizona (AP) — Jackson Browne, Alice Cooper, David Crosby and Graham Nash will perform in Tucson, Arizona, to benefit a charitable fund established after the shooting there that killed six people and wounded 13 others.

Other acts at the March 10 concert that Browne and Cooper announced this week include Sam Moore, Nils Lofgren, Keb' Mo', Jerry Riopelle, Dar Williams, Ozomatli and Calexico.

Astronaut Mark Kelly, the husband of wounded U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, plans to speak at the event.

It will benefit the Fund for Civility, Respect, and Understanding. Wounded Giffords aide Ron Barber started the fund to support people affected by the Jan. 8 shooting and to hold events promoting community unity.

This isn't the first time Alice has done music for charity.  He also raises money for his own charity, The Solid Rock Foundation, which provides an alternative for youth at risk.
Here is a great interview with Alice where he talks a lot about his life story, his Foundation, and his faith.
