Alice Cooper Opens Rock and Roll Academy to Help Kids Off the Streets


The 'School's Out' hitmaker says music is the answer to keep kids from the worst part of the town and explore their talent.

Alice Cooper dropped by Sioux Falls, South Dakota on Wednesday, October 10 to help his friend, Chuck Brennan, launch a Rock and Roll Academy. The facility is opened for local Boys & Girls Club members and gives them an opportunity to learn how to sing or play music instruments.

The 64-year-old rocker believes that music is a great way to keep youngsters out of trouble and turn any negative energy into a positive one. "Guns, gangs and drugs are in every single city now, and teenagers are the target. So, music is the answer I think," he gushes.

Learning music at a very young age is very beneficial, so he says. "Kids are like sponges, they come in here, they learn 2 or 3 chords and pretty soon they're writing their own songs, so just give them a chance to be creative and they'll be creative," he explains.

In the Brennan academy, the kids will have access to rehearsal rooms, a performance area and a recording studio. Some of the instruments available during the music lesson include a few high-end drum sets from Warrant's guitarist Joey Allen and guitars from KISS' members.
