Hellraising rocker Alice Cooper is not as tough as he seems - the SCHOOL'S OUT star is afraid of needles. The ageing star, real name VINCENT FURNIER, stage shows in the 1970s regularly featured live snakes, mock executions and staged decapitations - but the Poison rocker is terrified by the sight of even the smallest needle. He says, "I'm frightened of needles. I can put my head in a guillotine and play with a snake. But no - no needles!"
