Vampire Legends: Alice Cooper and Johnny Depp (Countdown to Halloween)
A strong contender for the hard rock album of the year is the self-titled Hollywood Vampires record, released in September. It is mostly a covers album, featuring songs by bands who have lost members to death, such as the Who’s “My Generation,” Jimi Hendrix’ “Manic Depression,” and the Doors’ “Five to One/Break On Through (To the Other Side).” The best cover song on the album is Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love.” There are two new songs, “Raise the Dead” and “My Dead Drunk Friends,” as well as a voice-over track called “The Last Vampire” featuring the late Christopher Lee reciting a passage from Dracula.
Alice Cooper is the lead singer, while Johnny Depp and Joe Perry share guitar duties. The list of guest musicians is a who’s who of rock and roll: Dave Grohl, Brian Johnson, Robby Krieger, Slash, Joe Walsh, Kip Winger, and Perry Farrell are just a few of the huge names that contributed to the record. Duff McKagan, Matt Sorum, and Tommy Henricksen joined the band for live performances in Los Angeles and Brazil.
