Jack White, Alice Cooper Share Stories About Baseball, Rock ‘N’ Roll

Jack White and Alice Cooper shared stories about baseball and Rock N’ Roll during a special panel discussion in downtown Detroit to benefit a foundation for Parkinson’s Disease.

White and Cooper shared the night with retired baseball all-star Kirk Gibson and about 120 people in the audience.

MC5 guitarist Wayne Kramer and legendary music producer Bob Ezrin also attended the event.

The 25-minute long discussion was moderated by Ann Delisi of the local PBS affiliate WDET.

When Delisi asked what walk-up music they would prefer during a baseball game, White chose the White Stripes‘ “Seven Nation Army,” while Cooper went with “Welcome to My Nightmare” and Gibson chose the White Stripes’ “Black Orchid.”

Cooper and White also talked about growing up learning to play baseball in Detroit. White also revealed that he had hit up Gibson for some hitting tips during mid-June, when he hosted a benefit game at an old Negro League park in the area.

The Q&A session was followed by a two-song acoustic set from White. He played “We’re Going to be Friends” from the White Stripes’ third album, White Blood Cells.
