Alice Cooper has been hit by the charity bug after kicking off 2014 in Hawaii onstage with Steven Tyler and Sammy Hagar – he is re-teaming with the former Van Halen frontman for another fundraiser.

Cooper and Hagar will perform with former Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver bandmates Slash and Matt Sorum in Las Vegas this week as part of the Kerry Simon Says Fight MSA benefit.

Money raised at the gig will benefit sufferers of the neurological disorder known as multiple system atrophy.

The all-star charity rock gig will also feature Vince Neil and System of a Down drummer John Dolmayan, while actor Bill Murray will serve as host alongside celebrity chef Kerry Simon, who was diagnosed with MSA last year.

Cooper and Hagar were joined by Tyler, former Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora, Weird Al Yankovic and actors Tom Arnold and Keith Carradine for New Year’s Eve Maui Food Bank benefit in Hawaii.
