During Stone Temple Pilots’ March 8 show at The Rose in Pasadena, California, the band were joined onstage by Johnny Depp and Joe Perry (Aerosmith). Depp performed “Down” with the group, before Depp and Perry both joined them for a cover of Aerosmith’s “Toys In The Attic” and for set closer “Sex Type Thing.”
During Stone Temple Pilots’ show at The Canyon in Santa Clarita, CA last night (March 2), the band were joined onstage by some special guests including Johnny Depp and Wayne Kramer (MC5). They also played a cover of MC5‘s “Kick Out The Jams.“
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.”
It was previously revealed that Joe Perry (Aerosmith) would be joined by collabortaors Robin Zander (Cheap Trick), David Johansen (The New York Dolls), Gary Cherone (Extreme), Robert DeLeo (Stone Temple Pilots), Dean DeLeo (Stone Temple Pilots), Terry Reid, Buck Johnson (Aerosmith), and David Goodstein at his “Sweetzerland Manifesto” album release show at the Roxy in Los Angeles, CA last night (January 16), but now it appears they were not the only guests. Slash (Guns N’ Roses), Johnny Depp, and Chris Robinson (The Black Crowes) all made appearances as well. You can see footage from the show below, and pick up the album on January 19.
If Marilyn Manson’s below tweet is to be believed, it looks like Johnny Depp is considering joining his band as a guitarist. If it were to happen, it wouldn’t be too surprising considering their longtime friendship, and the fact that Depp has joined Manson onstage, starred in his music videos, etc.
