COLUMBUS, Ohio — Shock rocker Alice Cooper loves White Castle sliders.

Cooper is such a fan of the little square hamburgers that he showed up at the company headquarters in Columbus on Monday to be inducted into the restaurant’s Craver Hall of Fame.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that the 66-year-old rock legend — whose real name is Vincent Furnier — told about 250 people gathered at the restaurant’s headquarters stories about his father sharing White Castle burgers with him when he was a kid.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer was scheduled to open for Motley Crue on Tuesday night in Columbus.
