  • Trio Band Hollywood Vampires makes its Debut at the Grammys 2016

The band Hollywood Vampires, which consists of the trio, Alice Cooper, Joe Perry and Johnny Depp made its debut at the Grammys 2016. It was an odd occasion with an odd couple of guys singing and playing together.

Alice Cooper is known for his theatrical shock rock concerts which include live pythons and fake blood. Joe Perry who is one half of alternative rock group Aerosmith also jumped on Alice Cooper’s bandwagon recently.

To complete the bizarre bonding triangle was actor extraordinaire Johnny Depp. These three made themselves known via their rock band titled The Hollywood Vampires at the Grammys 2016.  

There automatically arise some legitimate questions regarding this strange group. Firstly, what is a Hollywood Vampire? Then, what was so wrong with naming the band Mighty Monsters?

Third, dancing like Alice Cooper is next to impossible, isn’t it? Fourth, why Joe Perry of all people? Agreed, they are a viable rock group…but will they last as long as others such as U2 or The Rolling Stones?  

While two of the three members are rock royalty, Johnny Depp is unknown in the music industry. So that comes as somewhat of a surprise.     

Depp may play the guitar in his own amateurish way, but to manage to fit into a rock band is not his bag. Johnny Depp proved his mettle in Pirates of the Caribbean.

At the Grammys 2016, he along with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry got together to entertain the audience via a lot of special effects. Depp was mostly hidden from view and it hardly looked like he was even participating.

As for Alice Cooper, he was shouting and screaming till his throat went raw and hoarse. Depp’s delivery seemed rather substandard at best. However, seeing such a performance coming from an actor who has little to no experience in musicology called for applause. 

In short, Cooper was the bee’s knees. Perry was okay. Depp meanwhile was just a prop that was there for the publicity. The main tribute this makeshift band lent to was none other than the late Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister. They belted out “Ace of Spades”.

Cooper was heard later on praising Lemmy. He said that Lemmy was the sort of person you couldn’t help admiring and loving. He was a nifty dude. The band members may disband in the future or they may stay together. This is something that only time will tell.
