Hollywood Vampires Play Hollywood

According to Associated Press the Hollywood Vampires will perform two shows at The Roxy in West Hollywood, CA on Sept 16th and 17th. The Roxy is very small, so this is sure to sell out almost instantly when tickets go on sale Friday.
UPDATE: Former Guns 'n' Roses rhythm section Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum as well as Tommy Henriksen and Bruce Witkin (Piano/Guitar) will join Alice, Johnny Depp and Joe Perry the band for these show, and presumably the Rio show as well.
Here's the full press release:
LOS ANGELES, CA: In 1972, on the Sunset Strip at a club called the Rainbow Bar & Grill, the Hollywood Vampires were born in the upstairs bar.  It was a gathering place for rock stars living in or passing through L.A.  “To join the club, one simply had to out drink all of the members,” says Alice Cooper, a founding member of the Vampires.  “I would walk in on a typical night,” Alice says, “and John Lennon, Harry Nilsson, Keith Moon—who would usually be in a costume like a maid or a chauffeur—Bernie Taupin, Jim Morrison and Mickey Dolenz would be there. The next week might be Bernie Taupin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Mickey Dolenz.”
Now, returning to where it once began, the Hollywood Vampires (Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, and Joe Perry) have announced today two shows at the notorious Sunset Strip music venue, The Roxy.  This will mark the Hollywood Vampires only U.S. appearances on September 16 and 17, and will surely be the most sought after ticket in town. Joining the Hollywood Vampires live will be Matt Sorum on drums, Duff McKagan on bass, Tommy Henriksen on guitar, and Bruce Witkin on piano and guitar. Tickets are on sale on August 14 for the September 16th show at and September 17th show at
Additionally on September 24, in what will be their only international appearance, the band will head to Brazil for “Rock in Rio.” Before that show, the band will partner with Starkey Hearing Foundation, an organization that has provided more than 1.8 million free hearing aids to people in need in more than 100 countries, to offer and fit hearing aids to more than 150 people in need.   After the hearing aid fittings, the Hollywood Vampires and Starkey Hearing Foundation will bring a number of individuals to the show so they can hear music for the first time in their lives.
“Hearing connects us to life, our families and to the world around us,” said Bill Austin, founder of Starkey Hearing Foundation. “It’s a precious gift, and we are excited to work with the Hollywood Vampires to introduce so many to the world of sound and help them hear music for the first time.”
Three years ago, Alice and good friend Johnny Depp got together and decided the spirit of the Hollywood Vampires should live again (minus the drinking).  An environment for great artists to hang, laugh and play together. The Hollywood Vampires live again with the release of the Hollywood Vampires new album.  Alice and Johnny were joined by Joe Perry, who is an old friend of both of them, and with producer Bob Ezrin, the recording began: a tribute to the original Hollywood Vampires.  The new album is set to be released on September 11 and all artist proceeds will be donated to MusiCares.

'Hybrid' By Nick Stead

I don`t make a habit of putting things here that aren`t directly Alice Cooper related but I hope you don`t mind me breaking the rules a little to announce Sickthing and STUK forum moderator Nick Stead (forum users know him as Gorehound) is launching his debut novel, 'Hybrid' tomorrow July 2nd.
"Set in Yorkshire, 'Hybrid' follows the story of a teenage boy as he falls victim to the werewolf curse and is forced to transform during the full moon. But not only must he battle his own lupine instincts to keep himself from hurting the people he cares about, he must also hide his lycanthropy from a group of hunters known as the Demon Slayers, intent on wiping out his race.
In a time of tame werewolves and vampires that sparkle in the sunlight, 'Hybrid' takes the reader back to our most primal fears from a time when the predators lurking in the darkness were a very real threat. Chilling, gripping and dripping with blood, Nick's writing style has been likened to a werewolf by other writers - he likes to grab the reader by the throat from the very beginning and not let go until he drags them to its bloody conclusion."
Of special interest to Alice fans are a couple of Alice Cooper references and two nightmare scenes that fans will recognise as being inspired by Alice. For more information on 'Hybrid' visit and you can learn more about Nick and other works at Get the ebook now on Amazon:

According to the official Rock In Rio website a new supergroup, "The Hollywood Vampires", featuring Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, and Joe Perry will be performing at the festival which takes place between 18th and 27th of September at Rock City in Rio de Janeiro,  Brazil.
The text they use in their description translates as something like:
"Think of a group formed by legends of rock, at the peak of 1970, which had getting drunk as an initiation test. Alice Cooper, Keith Moon (drummer of The Who) and John Lennon (yes, that one) were among some of the members. In 2013, Cooper and Johnny Depp (yes, he) decided to do a tribute to the original vampires and recorded an album with Joe Perry of Aerosmith."
Obviously they are talking about the yet to be released covers album.

We backed up Steven Tyler, Nuno Bettancourt, Weird Al, Sarah Maclachlan, Dexter & Noodles from The Offspring, Pat Simmons/Michael McDonald from Doobie Bros, Ray Benson (Asleep At the Wheel), Bob Rock & of course the boss man Alice. We rocked many of their originals as well as covers. Another truly magical night in Maui, all benefiting the Maui Food Bank."

Catching up on the last week or so and the big news is Calico Cooper's engagement to boyfriend Jed Williams. Calico posted a brilliant photo of the proposal with Alice and grandma in the background which just has to be seen. Congrats to all.

A few mainstream news sources have jumped on a report at the DC Beacon refering to an interview in HM magazine in which Alice talks in depth about his religious beliefs, and making it appear that this is a new interview. In fact, unless HM have reprinted it in a new issue, the quotes they use come from an interview originally published back in 2002!!

Celebrity Doodle Challenge

Alice Cooper guitarist Tommy Henriksen is taking part in the 'Celebrity Doodle Challenge' which aims to help charities caring for severely ill and abused children by donating a doodle sheet will be going up for auction early next year. Don't miss the chance to get your own slice of Tommy's mind on paper.
Check out for more info. Tradition dictates that each entrant throws down the gauntlet to two others, so Tommy has nominated his band mates Ryan Roxie and Nita Strauss!

There's been a little more coverage of the Pudding show in the last couple of days including a review at the Examiner.

Variety reports that 'School's Out' has been inducted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame. Each year a special member committee determines a group of recordings, at least 25 years old, which exhibit qualitative or historical importance to induct. A bit of a shame Variety choose to use a picture of Alice from 1975 rather then the band who recorded the song.

Sadly I also have to report the passing of another important figure in the history of Alice Cooper,. Michael Ashley Pandel, on Deceember 10th. Pandel moved to NYC to work as the Press Officer for the band that became “Alice Cooper”, directing publicity and promotional strategies, remaining throughout their most successful years before moving on in 1975 to become a successful restaurateur.

Pudding Time

The annual Alice Cooper Christmas Puddingshow was this weekend and for the first time Alice and the band performed a full show, theatrics and all, for those lucky enough to be there.

AZ Central have a report and photos from the night which also included a short set by Nightranger who currently feature Keri Kelli on guitar.
Before the Pudding Alice talked to the Phoenix New Times about both the pudding and the Solid Rock thrift store which you can see here. They also have a show review here.

RIP Chris Leahey

From the official Alice Cooper facebook:
"We've lost a good soul in Rock N Roll. Chris "Frank" Leahey was a stage tech for our tours and became like family when he came in with Chuck Garric. Chris had some personal struggles like many do, but ultimately he lost his battle and he passed away peacefully in Mesa Arizona surrounded by family. Chuck Garric wrote a touching note to Chris, R.I.P. Frank, we love and miss you!!"
You can check out Chuck's note here.
