Andrew Jackson Jihad and Welcome 2 My Pudding Over the Weekend

Welcome 2 My Pudding at Comerica Theatre

They don't call it a variety show for nothing. Most of the crowd for last night's Welcome 2 My Pudding, the 11th installment of local restauranteur, golfer, and shock rocker Alice Cooper's long running Christmas Pudding event, was more interested in seeing guys like Kip Winger than Brian "Head" Welch.

But the diverse -- let's call it scattered, even -- lineup, which featured John Corabi (Motely Crue), Bruce Kulick (KISS), Gary Mule Deer, Runaway Phoenix with guitarist Orianthi (who also plays in Alice's band), Kip Winger, and headliners Brian "Head" Welch, The Tubes, Rob Halford, and Alice himself, was united for a cause, Alice Cooper's Solid Rock Foundation.
