Ps. Johnny’ is wearing a t-shirt with a photo of Patti Smith, known for being an influential component of the New York City punk rock movement in the 70′s and also Johnny’s friend. They already played together and Johnny also collaborated on the track “Banga” from her latest 2012 album “Banga”, playing drums and guitar.
With Hollywood Vampires, Johnny [Depp] and Jeff Beck and I are all good friends. He heard the song “Bushwackers” and he said, “I want to play on that.” So we get Jeff Beck, that’s one of those things that where you go, “We’ll never get Jeff Beck, he’s the greatest guitar player of all time” or “Paul McCartney will never sing on the Vampires album.” Well, he did come in and sing on it. Those are the things that you just go, “Oh my gosh I never thought that would happen.”
When we did the first Vampires album, everybody wanted to pay tribute to our dead, drunk friends. It was the perfect opportunity out in Los Angeles — Joe Walsh was there, Robby Krieger, Brian Johnson, Dave Grohl. They all picked a song they wanted to play on and it was fun to look at who played on that album and go, “Jeez, that’s the who’s who right there!”
This is the original version from the Hollywood Vampires performing “Heroes”, as aired on
TV for the “The Late Late Show with James Corden” on CBS channel, last July 30. The
performance is the same, but the YouTube Version cuts
band and talking a little bit with Johnny, Joe and Alice when the performance ends.
Ross Halfin shared some new fotos taken last May 7
in Los Angeles, during the photoshoot for the Hollywood Vampires Tour, to remind about today’s show at The
Late Late Show with James Corden!!!
And there’s some new updates too!
Alice Cooper, Glen Sobel and Tommy Henriksen were in Austin, Texas playing on the ninth show of Cooper’s “Ol’ Black Eyes is Back Tour” and joined Joe Perry on stage. The four
vampires and the “ninth member”, the photographer Kyler Clark traveled to
California on a late flight to arrive in Los Angeles the
earlier possible and rest a bit and met with Buck Johnson and Chris Wyse (Who were in Los
Angeles; Buck was recording in
Tennessee some days ago) and Johnny (who was in London). Tommy commented that they were going
to the show around 10 AM (Los Angeles hour, which was one hour ago) Glen Sobel told that they are going to tape the show and also let a mysterious question wondering “who
in the Vamps is gonna do Car Pool Karaoke”.
STAY TUNED!!! In ONE WEEK the Hollywood Vampires will be on “The Late Late Show with James Corden”!!!
Ps. Is unknown if will be a live or a taped performance or interview. Checking their schedules, Joe Perry, Buck Johnson and Chris Wyse are free with no shows. Johnny is completing one month today he is in London, but Alice Cooper, Tommy Henriksen and Glen Sobel are currently performing at the “
Ol’ Black Eyes is Back Tour” in the USA. July 30 is the only day on their schedule with no shows, but in July 29 and July 31 they have shows in Texas and the James Corden show is in Los Angeles… Either way, let’s wait and stay tuned!
