‘Rise’ by the Hollywood Vampires is a kick ass, blood sucking, and totally fangtastic album!
It was about three years ago when shock rock legend Alice Cooper was talking about doing a cover album. Tribute style album to his “dead friends” like Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon. Since then not much information was released and it would appear that this album would never happen. Earlier this year Alice Cooper announce that he was in the process of reanimate the Hollywood Vampires, an early 1970’s club for famous rock stars on the Sunset Strip. This reanimation would include the help from none other then Joe Perry of Aerosmith and Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp. And what was meant to be a simple Alice Cooper cover album, turned into something much bigger. Particularly when Rock ‘n Roll legends such as Brian Johnson, Paul McCartney, Slash, Kip Winger and many more joined this endeavour.
