Hollywood Vampires Announce UK 2023 Tour
The story of the Hollywood Vampires began in the 1970s on the Sunset Strip at the Rainbow Bar & Grill’s 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 original Vampires, “I would walk in on a typical night 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.”
Cooper and good pal Johnny Depp got together and decided the spirit of the Hollywood Vampires should live again (minus the drinking). They were joined by long-time mutual friend Joe Perry and the recording began: a tribute to the original Hollywood Vampires. An environment was born for great artists to hang, laugh and play together. Sir Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl, Joe Walsh, Slash, Robbie Krieger, Zak Starkey and more stopped by to record. The Hollywood Vampires released their self-titled debut album in 2015 which included the original single “Bad As I Am”, plus renditions of some iconic rock favourites and tracks which capture the Hollywood Vampires spirit.
The debut album garnered mixed reviews but hit a chord with many, our review can be read here:
