PHOENIX — Valley resident and all-around master of "shock rock" Alice Cooper has assembled an interesting roster of guests for his upcoming Christmas Pudding Fundraiser in Phoenix.

Notable guests expected to be involved in the festivities include Rob Zombie, Van Halen's Sammy Hagar, Wally Palmar of The Romantics, "Saturday Night Live" alum Jim Breuer, and the Tempe-native band Gin Blossoms.  

“We are excited to be celebrating our 20th year with a stellar lineup of talent who dedicate their time and passion to help us raise funds for our Rock Teen Centers,” Cooper said in a statement. 

Cooper's music centers in Phoenix and Mesa offer free music training and mentorship for local teens.
