Alice Cooper interview excerpt:


The Arizona Republic
July 10 2015

Then, I go off with the Hollywood Vampires. They're my side project. Johnny Depp. Joe Perry. Matt Sorum. Paul McCartney's on the record, but I don't think he's gonna be in the touring band. Duff McKagan. We dedicated an album to all of our dead drunk friends, all the guys that died that we used to drink with. It's a pretty good album. And then we're gonna do some shows, some charity shows and Rock in Rio. It's a pretty good lineup."

The Hollywood Vampires album is due to arrive in September.

"It's been done for three months now," Cooper. "I've never done a covers album. And it's not an Alice Cooper album. It's a Hollywood Vampires album. Brian Johnson, from AC/DC, is one of the singers. Paul McCartney plays piano and bass and sings. We've known Paul for 35 years, but when he walks in your studio? Different thing."

They got some nice hard rock selections on that album. Kind of looking forward as to what they do with Manic Depression. That's a real good song there.

Legendary Hollywood Vampires Rise Again

New album out September 11

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- In 1972, 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 Vampires. "I would walk in on a typical night," Alice says, "and John Lennon, Harry Nilsson, Keith Moon—who would usually be in a costume like a maid or a chauffeur—Bernie Taupin, Jim Morrison and Mickey Dolenz would be there. The next week might be Bernie Taupin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Mickey Dolenz."

Three years ago, Alice and good friend Johnny Depp got together and decided the spirit of the Hollywood Vampires should live again (minus the drinking). An environment for great artists to hang, laugh and play together. The Hollywood Vampires live again with the release of the Hollywood Vampires new album. Alice and Johnny were joined by Joe Perry, who is an old friend of both of them, and the recording began: a tribute to the original Hollywood Vampires.

For the next two years, Alice, Joe and Johnny, joined by producer Bob Ezrin and an amazing group of modern day vampires, including Perry Farrell, Dave Grohl, Sir Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh, Slash, Robbie Krieger, Zak Starkey, Brian Johnson and Kip Winger, recorded tracks by their dead friends and heroes. Also included are two original songs that tell the story of the Vampires, one of which, "Raise The Dead," has an intro by Sir Christopher Lee, recorded just prior to his death.

The album package, an antique book, was created by noted men's fashion designer (and rock fan) John Varvatos in his signature vintage style. Alice and Varvatos, both Detroit natives, have been partners in fashion for several years with Alice lending his classic rock style as a brand ambassador.

A sneak peek at the liner notes, penned by original Hollywood Vampire Bernie Taupin, "I'm not here to defend their vices. Over-indulgence of any sort does not ultimately constitute for a healthy mind and body. And while on the periphery of those involved, wives may have come and gone, career choices may have been deemed dubious, and heartbreak in some cases stalked a dark corridor, but in the lair of the Hollywood Vampires only joy and laughter reigned."

"I'm not completely sure what constituted bad behavior back then, but in this lair it existed in a bubble, a hermetically sealed dome of fun. It may not have been the round table at the Algonquin, but these were witty, intelligent guys who often got raucous and loud, but rest assured there were no bystanders or animals hurt in the making of the Hollywood Vampires."

All artist proceeds will be donated to MusiCares.

I believe the pics are Johnny's house. The picture on the wall on the background is his old dog named Moo.
