PHOENIX (AP) -- Alice Cooper believes it's smarter for a kid to learn guitar than to join a gang and end up dead or in jail. The Arizona Republic reports Cooper will open the Rock Teen Center in Phoenix with a free concert today. Cooper has spent 11 years raising money for the center through his Solid Rock Foundation. The center will teach troubled teens aspects of the music industry like music lessons, dance, staging and lighting.
