Alice Cooper may already be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, having been inducted in 2011, but the band’s titular frontman just received an honor that just might be on par with it.
Ultimate Classic Rock reports that Cooper has been inducted into hamburger chain White Castle’s Cravers Hall of Fame.
“When we heard about Cooper’s life-long love of our hot and tasty sandwiches, we knew he had to be a part of the Cravers Hall of Fame,” Jami Richardson, corporate vp of White Castle, said of the rocker’s induction into its delectable ranks. “He is a legend in the rock ‘n’ roll world, and now he is a legend at White Castle.”
“It’s probably one of the most all-American things that there is, White Castles,” Cooper added to reporters in attendance. “So I feel like it’s the one product that hasn’t changed over all the years. Everything tastes differently now. But White Castle tastes exactly the same.”
Columbus, Ohio’s Dispatch reported that Cooper visited the White Castle headquarters for his induction — and even did a rendition of “No More Mr. Nice Guy” for the attendees.
Cooper told stories at the induction, noting that his father used to bring home bags of the chain’s burgers and that he still attempts to get the tour bus to stop at the drive-thru every time he sees one of the restaurants.
As long as he’s not buying the band entire Crave Crates. That seems dangerous.
