Hollywood Vampires (Alice Cooper Etc.) Writing New Album

Hollywood Vampires, the supergroup featuring Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, and Joe Perry (Aerosmith), have been writing new music for their next album. Cooper told Billboard the following:

“Everybody is writing right now,. We probably won’t get into the album until the summer, and then it’ll go quickly because we’ve all got a lot of songs. Johnny did five movies last year so he could free himself up for this, and the band’s really anxious to get together.”

That group also features multiple guests, and Cooper hopes that list may continue to grow:

“I still like the idea that the Vampires is the world’s most expensive bar band. If somebody wants to jump on stage and play with us, if they know the songs and they fit, then come on up. If a Jimmy Page could come up and play with us, or a Jeff Beck or any of those guys and do a couple songs with us, they would fit right into Vampire world, ’cause they lived through that era.”

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:
