Looking back with The Hollywood Vampires



Back in 2012, three gentlemen sat down and started a new band, actually, a supergroup. Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, and Joe Perry created The Hollywood Vampires. From  Wikipedia: The band name derives from The Hollywood Vampires, a celebrity drinking club formed by Cooper in the 1970s which included but was not limited to: John Lennon and Ringo Starr of the Beatles, Harry Nilsson, Keith Moon of the Who, and Micky Dolenz of the Monkees. The mission of the original Hollywood Vampires was to drink until no one could stand up.




But today a lot of their music are cover songs that honor the music of the rock stars who died from excess in the 1970's. In October of 2015 an article was written by Kevin Murphy for “Classic Rock” titled, Hollywood Vampires: the unlikeliest, soberest supergroup ever? Read the article here, it’s an excellent read. https://www.loudersound.com/features/hollywood-vampires-the-unlikeliest-soberest-supergroup-ever



May 14th, 2019 The Fillmore Auditorium, a very excited concert photographer (yeah, that would be me) stood in front of the stage waiting for the lights to come down. Thanks to the very first on-line magazine I worked with, Yesterdazenews which is now called, Global Music Mayhem. The lights dropped and one by one The Hollywood Vampires made their way to the stage. The last member to come out was Johnny Depp walking right toward me and I believe every female in the venue was standing behind me screaming their lungs out!




Take a look back on an evening with, The Hollywood Vampires.

There's a lot of pictures....
