Alice Cooper at Beacon Theatre (more by Greg Cristman)

Big news in the burger world as Alice Cooper was just inducted into the White Castle Cravers Hall of Fame at the White Castle Headquarters in Columbus, Ohio yesterday. AC, who owns his own restaurant in Arizona, is a big time White Castle fan since way back, having mentioned being a fan of WC's sliders in interviews over the years. He even served White Castle at the afterparty for the premiere of the Alice Cooper documentary Super Dooper Alice Cooper.

Alice Cooper is currently opening up on Motley Crüe's massive farewell tour, which isn't going so hot for he headliners. On the opening date in Grand Rapids, MI, the Crüe got bööed. The band had technical difficulties after a few tracks, and things got worse from there, with the band stopping the show at one point, Vince Neil apologizing, and Nikki Sixx saying that the band forgot their own song. Here's a bit from a review of the show on MLive.com, which called the show "an anticlimactic wheeze over the finish line":

Three songs in, during "Primal Scream," drummer Tommy Lee broke the head on his kick drum, prompting Mick Mars to fill time with a guitar solo. After five minutes of noisemaking and riffing on Jimi Hendrix's "Little Wing" - Mars seemed hung out to dry - singer Vince Neil took the mic and apologized, tossing in a forced laugh as he told the audience it would be a few minutes before they were ready to play again. The house lights came up, and the crowd got restless.

After a 10-minute delay, the band made a decent recovery, chugging through "Same Ol' Situation" and "Looks that Kill." "On With the Show" was supposed to merge with "Too Fast for Love," but the band stopped dead in its tracks. "He broke something again," Neil said of Lee. "The band forgot their own song," bassist Nikki Sixx said. They restarted and powered through the number, Sixx visibly upset and off his game, and Neil looking confused. Then Mars experienced problems with his monitors and guitars. Cue another delay, and a few boos.

"Oh man. First-night (expletive). We're breaking down. You guys can always say you were here," Neil half-heartedly joked.

Hope they figure it out, as they've got about 70 more shows to get through. According to the review, though, Alice Cooper was great. The show hits Madison Square Garden on 10/28. Tickets are on sale.

Speaking of ACs that are playing or have played Madison Square Garden getting honored with awards, AC/DC's Brian Johnson recently received an honorary degree from Northumbria University. This comes the same day that AC/DC provided an update on their forthcoming yet-to-be-named album -- it's finished -- and an update on guitarist Malcolm Young's health. The band says he's very likely to tour in 2014. That will be AC/DC's 40th anniversary, and Johnson has teased the possibility of a 40th anniversary tour. Get better, Malcolm!
