Los Angeles: Rocker Alice Cooper says legendary singer Frank Sinatra once performed his song `You & ME` as a thank you.

The `School`s Out` hitmaker said that Sinatra sang the song to thank him for helping a friend`s son realise his baseball dream, reported MTV online.

Cooper had no idea the kid he invited to join him in the dug-out for a celebrity baseball game was the son of Sinatra`s best pal Jilly Rizzo but he quickly found out that his generosity had been noted by his hero when Sinatra, also known as Ol` Blue Eyes, performed Cooper`s song during a magical Hollywood Bowl performance in 1977.

"We had a celebrity baseball game and this kid couldn`t get in, and I took him and put him on the bench - and it was Frank`s best friend`s son. He said, `I owe you one`. And
that`s how he paid me back: He did one of my songs at the Hollywood Bowl. Isn`t that great...? He was cool," Cooper said.
