We hope you were ready to rock as the supergroup Hollywood Vampires totally destroyed it in their first Grammy performance, which marked the live debut of their new song ‘As Bad As I Am,’ as well as a Motorhead tribute. And we LOVE Johnny Depp, ROCK STAR!
Boom! Alice Cooper, Johhny Depp, and Aerosmith‘s Joe Perry brought on the heat, flames and noise at the Grammys with their biggest audience ever, as the Hollywood Vampires brought down the house with their scorching brand of rock. They made their presence known with their new song “As Bad As I Am,” with such a killer Grammy debut, and also gave a rocking tribute to late Motorhead lead singer Lemmy Kilmister. How fierce did Johnny look onstage as a rock and roll guitarist? He looked just as home behind his axe as he does playing Captain Jack Sparrow in the movies!
When rock legends and a movie superstar come together, this is what you get with the supergroup’s blazing new song alongside an amazing tribute to legendary Motorhead lead singer Lemmy, who died on Dec. 28 following complications of liver cancer at age 70. They played the band’s signature song “Ace of Spaces” and absolutely brought down the house.
On the red carpet before the show, Alice described how the group came together, as he and Johnny worked on the 2012 film Dark Shadows together and started writing songs, eventually hitting the recording studio. Joe said he literally wandered in to one of their sessions and started jamming with them on the spot, making the trio officially form a band. The name “Hollywood Vampires” derives from a celebrity drinking club formed by Alice in the 1970’s and while Joe and Alice are sober today, Johnny still likes to party.
