Rock legend Alice Cooper spoke in an interview with NME, and revealed the truth about his bandmate (in Hollywood Vampires), actor, Johnny Depp. He stated:

Almost everything I read about Johnny Depp was absolutely untrue. You know, I’m touring with him and it says here in the paper: ‘Well, you [Depp] weigh 90 lbs and you’re a drug addict and you’re drinking and that you’re out of money’ and all this stuff.

I’m on tour with him and I’ve never seen him look better in his lifetime, I’ve never heard him play better, he’s laughing all the time. Just the opposite of what you’re reading is what was going on.”

He continued:

“I’m on tour with him and I’ve never seen him look better in his lifetime, I’ve never heard him play better, he’s laughing all the time. Just the opposite of what you’re reading is what was going on.

On this album, [Depp] wrote a lot of the lyrics – and I got to sing them – so I’m the one delivering the venom. Being in a band is, I think, more expressive for him than doing movies. When you’re in rock ‘n’ roll, you can bring your personal life and problems right to the stage – and you can bring your anger to the stage. It’s hard rock, but there’s stuff you’re not going to expect.”
