Cooper reportedly said the following to the crowd:

“If you notice one of our brothers is not onstage with us, he was very sick before the show.”

Fans that saw the incident said Perry was clearly having trouble, and ended up sitting on the drum kit, before exiting the stage. He lost consciousness, and EMTs carried him out on a stretcher.

Hollywood Vampires Perform Tribute For Motörhead’s Lemmy Kilmister At 2016 Grammy Awards/Premiere New Single “As Bad As I Am”

Hollywood Vampires, the band featuring Alice Cooper, Joe Perry (Aerosmith), and Johnny Depp, along with live members Guns N’Roses’ Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum, performed a special tribute to Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead) at this year’s Grammy’s. Check out some footage of that below:

Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) introduced the band, and had the folliwing to say:

“Many of us play rock and roll, but very few of us are rock and roll. Lemmy Kilmister was rock and roll. He was a rebel and an outsider, one of a kind and a way of life. He was Motorhead. He was a legend and I was proud to call him my friend. I have an ‘Ace of Spades’ tattoo, but the truth is Lemmy and Motorhead left their mark on me a long time ago, just as they did for everybody who’s ever loved rock and roll. As Lemmy taught us in ‘Ace of Spades,’ the pleasure is to play. So tonight, I wanna thank Lemmy and the late Phil ‘Philthy Animal’ Taylor for their music and everything it meant.”

On another note, Hollywood Vampires also played their new song titled “As Bad As I Am,” during their performance. The studio version of that can be found below:

Hollywood Vampires To Perform Musical Tribute For Motörhead’s Lemmy Kilmister at 2016 Grammy Awards

Hollywood Vampires, the band featuring Alice Cooper, Joe Perry (Aerosmith), and Johnny Depp, along with live members Guns N’Roses’ Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum, will be performing a special tribute to Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead) at this year’s Grammy’s.

Alice Cooper told Rolling Stone the following:

“We started this band as a means to toast our ‘dead drunk friends’ at the Rainbow, all the ghosts in the bar, and now I guess Lemmy is involved in that, too. Lemmy was one of those salt-of-the-earth guys. Find me somebody who didn’t love Lemmy. He’s just one of those guys that’s impossible not to like. He was always funny.”

According to Cooper, the band will most likely perform Motörhead’s “Ace of Spades,” and said the following about that:

“I might do it more ‘Alice Cooper style,’ but it would still have to have that growl, that guttural voice to make it work. I can’t picture, like, Creedence Clearwater doing that song.”

He also added the following about a new song titled “As Bad As I Am,” from the deluxe edition of the band’s debut album, which they plan on playing as well.

“Johnny [Depp] says to me, ‘My dad was a bit of a rounder, one of those guys that was in and out of trouble all the time. During Thanksgiving or Christmas, when we’d toast, he’d say, ‘Good as you are, bad as I am.’ And I went, ‘Wow, that’s really good.’ That actually sounds like an old, Irish toast of some sort. So once again, almost everyone in the band is a recovered alcoholic and it refers back to alcohol.”

The deluxe version of Hollywood Vampire’s debut effort will be released on February 12, and the Grammy’s will air on February 15.
