HALESTORM‘s Lzzy Hale joined HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES on stage last night (Thursday, September 24) at the Rock In Rio festival in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil to perform the LED ZEPPELIN classic “Whole Lotta Love”. Professionally filmed video footage of her appearance can be seen below.
HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES‘ touring lineup features Alice Cooper on vocals, Duff McKagan (GUNS N’ ROSES) on bass, Matt Sorum (GUNS N’ ROSES) on drums, and Joe Perry (AEROSMITH) and A-list actor Johnny Depp on lead and rhythm guitar.
The HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES‘ album was released on September 11. The self-titled set, which was produced by Bob Ezrin, features appearances by Paul McCartney, Brian Johnson, Joe Walsh, Zak Starkey, Perry Farrell, Dave Grohl, Slash, Robbie Krieger, and Kip Winger, among others. All artist proceeds will be donated to MusiCares.
Perry told The Pulse Of Radio that he’s looking forward to HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES growing into a solid working live outfit. “I’m an East Coast guy, y’know. I mean, everybody else is kinda like, West Coast, or… So, to spend all the time in L.A. and to be part of this, it’s a real gas. And I know it’s something that Johnny‘s wanted to do for a long time, actually have a band, y’know? And, y’know, we’re gonna put a lot of time into the rehearsals, so it won’t take anything but bring your guitar and show up.”
The HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES project is a salute to Alice Cooper‘s hard-partying L.A. crew in 1973-1974, which included Keith Moon, John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Harry Nilsson and Micky Dolenz, among others. A plank of wood featuring the legendary musicians’ signatures is immortalized at Hollywood’s Rainbow Bar And Grill in the club’s upper level, known as “Over The Rainbow.”
