Alice Cooper opened up about two Hollywood Vampires members by unveiling the common characteristics he shares with his current bandmates Joe Perry, Johnny Depp during his latest interview with Consequence Heavy.
As you might know, the Hollywood Vampires was a celebrity drinking club that Alice Cooper founded during the ’70s. It included very famous musicians such as Keith Moon, Ringo Starr, Micky Dolenz, and Harry Nilsson. The club members were meeting and drinking together at the Rainbow Bar and Grill.
Then, the club’s name, the Hollywood Vampires, inspired Alice Cooper, and he decided to form a supergroup with actor Johnny Depp and Aerosmith frontman Joe Perry in 2015. The band released two successful studio albums, and in one of their recording sessions, Cooper realized a common point.
Alice Cooper stated that all Hollywood Vampires members had an addiction problem and went into rehab, even though they started out as drinking buddies. So Perry, Depp, and himself have been sober for years and singing for their ‘drunk and dead’ friends.
Cooper talked about his bandmates, saying:
“Easily, the original Hollywood Vampires. Because when Hollywood Vampires was recording the album, I had realized that everybody in the band had rehabbed. Joe Perry has been in rehab, Johnny Depp was in rehab, I had been sober for years and years, and here we are singing all these songs about our dead, drunk friends — and we’re’ all sober.
I didn’t’ even realize that until we got into the session but the original Hollywood Vampires were just friends that liked to drink together. Hollywood Vampires rock band wanted nobody to forget about them.”
Therefore, it can be said that Hollywood Vampires members have lots of things in common, along with their great interest and a never-ending passion for creating music.
