"The legend of the Hollywood Vampires began in the upstairs bar inside the wicked halls of legendary Rainbow Bar and Grill on Sunset Strip in Hollywood in 1972. Surrounded by plenty of memorabilia on the walls, the location became the home away from home for stars like Alice Cooper, Ringo Starr, John Belushi, John Lennon, Keith Moon, Keith Emerson, Harry Nilsson, Marc Bolan and many more to get their (often) daily fixture. The staff at the Rainbow dubbed the crew the Hollywood Vampires – their very own secret late-night drinking club. More than 40 years later, Cooper and good friend Johnny Depp got together and decided the spirit of the Hollywood Vampires should live on (minus the drinking). They were joined by Aerosmith lead guitarist Joe Perry, who is an old friend of both, and the recording of the debut album began in 2015: a tribute to the original Hollywood Vampires. What started with an intimate, star-studded show at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles soon turned into an ambitious project. Their wildly successful summer tour in 2016, took them to more than 23 cities, 7 countries traversing the world from Verona, New York to Bucharest, Romania and headlining festivals such as Rock in Rio to more than 100,000 fans. It doesn't seem like the band is going to stop any time soon. On the contrary, summer 2018 saw them perform in front of a frantic audience all over Europe, their touring schedule even took them to the Montreux Jazz Festival... where they already performed and tested the audience's reaction on some brand-new original material. The Product The most important thing about the Hollywood Vampires is that they are not constructed, they are not manufactured: the band lives and breathes the spontaneous magic of three mega stars. Dubbed the “most expensive bar band” by the Vampires themselves, there is more to this supergroup than its members: the music and the magic they create when together on stage or in the recording studio. May it be on the intense “I Want My Now”, a song that oozes rock'n'roll magic, or on the raucous rock songs like “We Gotta Rise”, a drunken sailor song with a prominent political message (or is it?). The approach on the band's new album is drastically different than on their 2015 debut album: they aren't simply opening a new chapter but they literally intent to “Rise” above. Consisting mainly of original material (and a cover of David Bowie's “Heroes” – sung by Johnny Depp, Johnny Thunder's “You Can't Put Your Arms Around A Memory” sung by Joe Perry, as well as The Jim Caroll Band's “People Who Died”), the sophomore album is purely rock'n'roll – in the true sense of the word and proves once and for all that the Hollywood Vampires aren't only procuring a legacy but are – without doubt - this is some of the greatest rock'n'roll to enjoy this year."
