Uncle Alice has been talking up this project for several years now and as of now it’s one step closer to seeing the light of day. The Hollywood Vampires was a name given to himself and his hard partying brethren drinking together in the early to mid 70’s. The Vampire’s club included Keith Moon, John Lennon, Ringo Starr and Harry Nilsson. Alice says that if back in the day he told them he was going to do an album after they were gone called “All My Dead Drunk Friends” they would have “died laughing”.
The project also has a Toronto connection with long time Cooper collaborator and amazing producer Bob Ezrin and according to The Coop it was his idea and says, “It’s just offensive enough to work, but all those guys would have totally got it.”
Alice will play the Rock in Rio festival this September under that moniker with a band that includes Joe Perry and yep! Johnny Depp!
