The rock star also wants to teach kids about music.

Rocker and Singer Alice Cooper has ventured away from his music to open his own thrift store in his hometown of Phoenix, Arizona.

Cooper cut the ribbon on Alice's Attic and Thrift Store, a store he recently opened in the same Phoenix building that houses his Rock Teen Center.  Customers can pick up regular thrift store items along with a chance to own his old clothing pieces from the Welcome to My Nightmare hitmaker's personal collection.

He spoke with about the opening saying, "I'm a shopaholic. When I'm on tour, I come home with 10 suitcases full of clothes. So I just go through and say, 'Ok, store, store, store, store.' A lot of good labels. Everything that's mine was worn."

"I have always been a thrift-store guy," says the rocker. "I'm a flea market guy. I love going to flea markets and thrift stores." A lot of the items in Alice's Attic are from Cooper's personal collection.

He continues, "Eventually what I'd like to do is since we teach music and art and everything, we should also teach retail.

"We should teach them (kids) to run a cash register because a lot of kids that aren't musically inclined, it's another way of training them. It's sort of, like, anything you can do to get them away from the street life. Because the street life, there's only two endings for that. In jail or dead. Anytime you can give a vocation to a kid, that's what you do."
