Alice Cooper hosted his 12th Annual Christmas Pudding this past Saturday night (Dec. 8) at Comerica Theater in Phoenix, AZ. This year Alice was joined this year by special guests Johnny Depp, L.A. Guns, Don Felder of Eagles and Sebastian Bach. Proceeds from Christmas Pudding go to Alice Cooper’s Solid Rock, a nonprofit organization founded by Alice dedicated to enriching the lives of teens through music, dance, and self expression. The primary goal of Alice Cooper’s Solid Rock is to honor Jesus Christ by helping to meet the spiritual, economical, physical, and social needs of teenagers and children within their community.
Johnny Depp joined Alice’s band on cover of ‘Break On Through’ by The Doors, ‘Revolution’ by The Beatles, ‘Foxy Lady’ by the Jimi Hendrix Experience classic and The Who’s ‘My Generation’, as well as ‘School’s Out.’ The grand finale featured an all-star jam on the seasonal ‘Run, Rudolph, Run’.
