ALICE COOPER Plays Basketball In Support Of SOLID ROCK FOUNDATION

GallupIndependent.com is reporting that an estimated 600 to 800 multi-generational fans packed the Navajo Christian Foundation's (NCF's) gym Saturday afternoon (March 12) to watch Alice Cooper and the Solid Rock Foundation team take on the Navajo foundation in a friendly game of basketball.

Solid Rock contributions to NCF helped it realize the recreation center, which is used by community members and abused and neglected children turned over to the group home by Social Services.

After the game, and before Alice joined his son's band, RUNAWAY PHOENIX, to rock the house with "Eighteen" and "School's Out", he spoke briefly about SRF.

"I've had this organization for almost 10 years now. It's a Christian non-profit. We looked around and said, 'Where can we help the most? And we kind of just realized that every city you go into I don't care if it's New York City or here there's guns, gangs, and drugs. It's a problem everywhere."

Alice Cooper's wife Sheryl offered insight into how her husband has used his gift of music to bridge the worlds of rock 'n' roll and Christianity.

Alice Cooper, superstar, is an image, she says.

"It's interesting to me: Why do people disassociate actors from their roles, but they won't disassociate rock 'n' rollers from the roles they play on the stage? Alice Cooper is a character that my husband plays. He is not Alice Cooper.

"He's like the Captain Hook of rock 'n' roll. And when he's done with his stage show, he leaves Alice on stage and he's who he is," she said. And a big part of who Alice is these days is Solid Rock Foundation (SRF).
