Hollywood Vampires To Take To The Road

Johnny Depp will morph from movie star to rock star as he heads out on the road with Alice Cooper, Joe Perry and friends for a major Hollywood Vampires tour.

Joining Depp, Cooper and Perry will be Matt Sorum (GunsN’Roses/Cult) on drums, Robert DeLeo (Stone Temple Pilots) on bass, Tommy Henriksen (Alice Cooper) on guitar, and Bruce Witkin (The Kids) on piano, percussion and guitar.

“Here is a gang of friends who came together really by chance and over the last year we were finally able to wrangle our schedules and the energy just fell into place. Playing with this line up is like a dream come true. After seeing the reaction at Rock in Rio in front of 100,000 fans, I know this band is going to tear the house down. Hell, I would want to be in the audience to see us rip it up,” said Joe Perry.

Cooper was part of the original Hollywood Vampires in 1969. “In 1969 on the Sunset Strip at a club called the Rainbow Bar & Grill, the Hollywood Vampires were born in the upstairs bar. It was a gathering place for the rock stars living in or passing through L.A. “To join the club, one simply had to out drink all of the members,” says Alice Cooper, a founding member of the original Vampires.

Cooper resurrected the “club” with his mate Johnny Depp. They recruited Perry, who is an old friend of both, and the recording began: a tribute to the original Hollywood Vampires.
