Jack White and Alice Cooper: Chat and Perform at Benefit

Jack White and Alice Cooper returned to their native Detroit Wednesday night to chat — and in the case of White, perform — at an event to raise money for Kirk Gibson’s Foundation for Parkinson’s.

White, Cooper and Gibson, the former Detroit Tigers and L.A. Dodgers star who announced in 2015 that he has Parkinson’s, spoke about mostly baseball topics, including learning to play the game in the city as kids, their experiences throwing out first pitches at games and what their walk-up music would be. White also revealed that he had hit up Gibson for some hitting tips in mid-June, when he hosted a benefit game at an old Negro League park in the area.

Billboard reports that White closed the night by doing acoustic performances of The White Stripes’ “We’re Going to Be Friends” and “Hotel Yorba.”
