Alice Cooper Resurrects Supergroup HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES On Hard Rockin Tribute Album


Dallas, TX - October 6, 2015.  North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio with Redbeard: The Stories Behind Historys Greatest Rock Albums  visits with Alice Cooper about his new project paying tribute to lost legendary musical friends the Hollywood Vampires.

The legend of the original Hollywood Vampires, the loose collection of ribald rockers including John Lennon, Harry Nilsson, Keith Moon, and Alice Cooper, in the Seventies rarely saw the light of day but raved nightly on Hollywoods Sunset Strip, providing notorious stories of rock debauchery as well as many charter members to the Betty Ford Clinic. The sole survivor left to resurrect the tale, Alice Cooper, has once again attracted a colorful core crew (sober this time) including guitar great Joe Perry of Aerosmith, GunsnRoses rhythm section Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum, and the coolest rhythm guitarist with a Screen Actors Guild card, Johnny Depp.  Other guest Vampires include Joe Walsh, Slash, Robbie Krieger , AC/DC lead singer Brian Johnson, Dave Grohl, Paul McCartney, and Perry Farrell of Janes Addiction. 

The new band thrashes through some powerful iconic rock songs including Led Zeppelins Whole Lotta Love, Jimi Hendrixs Manic Depression, The Whos My Generation, John Lennons Cold Turkey, a Doors medley of 5 to 1/ Break On Through, a mashup of Alices Schools Out and Pink Floyds Another Brick in the Wall Pt. 2 and many more.

Alice Cooper shares with InTheStudio host Redbeard the reason for the new  supergroup.

Theres a line in the song (Raise the Dead),They didnt lose their soul, They just lost control Here we are (new Hollywood Vampires) singing about all of our dead drunk alcoholic drug addict friends, and we were all at deaths door! Everyone in that room at one point was ready to die, and we all survived it.  These guys (original Vampires) didnt make it. We did, so its our obligation to do these songs and to honor these guys.      - Alice Cooper
