Question for all of you…what do Alice Cooper, Joe Perry and Johnny Depp have in common???
Answer: They’re all part of a new musical super group called Hollywood Vampires! Yes, you heard correctly!
It was brought to my attention yesterday that this trio started a cover band, paying tribute to those members who belonged to a drinking club formed in 1972. Alice Cooper was a founding member of this club that would get together on the Sunset Strip and drink, drink, drink! Original members included John Lennon, Harry Nilsson, Keith Moon, Bernie Taupin, Jim Morrison and Mickey Dolenz.
On September 11, 2015, Hollywood Vampires released a self-titled album that includes covers belonging to members of the drinking club and two original songs penned by Alice Cooper himself (See track listing below). The album also features several amazing musicians (Paul McCartney, Slash, Dave Grohl) and a spoken intro by Sir Christopher Lee, which was recorded shortly before his death.
So fire up your Apple Music, Spotify, etc. and give the album a listen! I mean you can’t really go wrong with Alice Cooper, Aerosmith’s Joe Perry and Johnny Depp, who happens to be a phenomenal guitarist! Let me know what you think!
