Hollywood Vampires – I Want My Now (Official
Video)!

Today, along
with the announcement of the first 11 days for the European Leg of the upcoming
“Hollywood Vampires 2020 Tour”, was also released the third official live
video, from the album “Rise”, after the videos for “Heroes” and “The Boogieman Surprise”. On
the video we can see footage of the group during the 2018 European Tour along some of
the clips previously released by Tommy Henriksen and Kyle Clark, and footage taken from the “Heroes”
video recorded and rehearsed in June 5, 2018 at the famous Hansa Studios in
Berlin, Germany.

* CREDITS OF THE SONG:

> Written by: Johnny Depp, Alice
Cooper and Tommy Henriksen.

* CURIOSITIES:

> From the new album “Rise” (released
last June 21) this was the first song to be played live in May 17, 2018 at
Turning Stone Resort Casino, Verona, New York during the 2018 Tour.

> This is the third version of
the song.
This is the shorter version of the song known. Although the video runs for 3
minutes and 40 seconds, the song only really starts 15 seconds later after the
conversation between the members during a flight, and ends 15 earlier too. You
can also hear in the beginning that the interlude “How the Glass
Fell” is playing. With few edits in the beginning and end, an “Album Edit” or “Radio
Edit” can be created and sent to radio stations to be played, due to most radios
prefer to play shorter versions.
The “Live Version” is a little bit longer and played during the tour or TV
performances. The song it’s the first to be played after the mash-up intro of “Bela
Lugosi’s Dead” + “The Last Vampire” and runs between 4 minutes and 40 seconds and 5 minutes.
The Album Version, included on the album “Rise”, is the longest track of the
album and their career. Although ending around 5 minutes, it keeps running for 7 minutes and 13
seconds. Alice Cooper was probably talking about this song in an interview for the “Ultimate Classic Rock”, last April 25, 2019: “..and if that means that the B section goes
too long, good, let it go too long. Normally, I would cut that in half, but I
said, ‘No, no, let’s let it go long.’ If I think that doesn’t make sense right
there, I kind of go: ‘Yeah, but that’s the personality of this song.”

>

Joe Perry also talked about the meaning of the song during an interview for the “Loudwire”, last

June 6, 2019: “It’s a commentary on the state of things. There’s that sense of people wanting things now. They don’t want it later, they don’t want it tomorrow, they want it now…That’s what’s driving it.”

>  For being partially written by Johnny and confirmed by Cooper that he is singing Johnny’s venom on the album, the first part can also be a hidden message about the actual hell he has been living.

OFFICIAL LYRICS:

(One, two, three, four!)

Dark inside the pain
Lost in the mundane
A lie for which I’m blamed
A hostage no one claims 

The fugitive’s way, I won’t obey
Your bullets just ricochet 

I’m going in madness; I’m going in
madness (2x)
I say… 

I want my now!
I need my now!
I want my now!
I need my now, RIGHT NOW!
I want my now!… 

I want my now… 

I live wherever I want
Too much time to think
Fire in the brain
Twisted and insane 

To runaway there’s just no way
Your bullets still ricochet 

I’m going in madness; I’m going in
madness (2x)
You’ll pay… 

I want my now!
I need my now!
I want my now!
I need my now, RIGHT NOW!
I want my now…

I want my now… 

I want a house, I want a car
I wanna be a movie star
I want some gold, I wanna a brick
I want a diamond selfie stick (Yeah)
I want a jet, I want to fly
I never wanna answer why
I want a crown, I want to reign
Wanna be a royal pain…

And I want it… NOW! 

I want my now, now, now 

I want my now!
I need my now!
I want my now!
I need my now, RIGHT NOW!
I want my now… 

Now, now, now…

FIRST 2020 DATE ANNOUNCED! 🎸  

The first date from the upcoming Hollywood Vampires’ 2020
Tour was announced today (October 7) on the festival’s accounts on Instagram
and Facebook, and is set to happen in
August 29
at the “Riverside Open Air
Festival
” in Aarburg, Switzerland.
Tickets for the festival is already for sale HERE

> What is known about the 2020 tour:

* The upcoming tour is planned to start sometime in mid-2020, between May, July or
August and is expected to be “a real tour
worthy of the name"
.
Paul Geary, co-manager of Hollywood Vampires, already
said
that some places like USA (now including east coast), Europe (France,
Finland, Ukraine, Spain and United Kingdom), Asia (Russia and Japan) and South
America (Brazil and Argentina) are on their plans, but to make it happen, they ALL
have to adjust their busy schedule due to their own side projects:

*

As Joe Perry revealed, Johnny has a
movie scheduled to start in January (High
probability of being for the Fantastic Beasts 3)
and the important trial in
February 3. After that he will have some time to live his music dream due to
the upcoming releases of “Waiting for the Barbarians”, “Minamata” and “Kreka”.

*

Alice Cooper, Tommy Henriksen, Glen Sobel
and even Kyler Clark (Hollywood Vampires Photographer, also known as Cereal Kyler)
are currently touring on Cooper’s “Black Ol’ Eyes Is Back Tour” which will
continue until April 2020.

*

Chris Wyse also has his side band
named “Owl” playing in California and sometimes helps Alice Cooper too.

*

Joe Perry and Buck Johnson are currently playing on Aerosmith’s Las Vegas
Residence “Deuces Are Wild”, which will also continue in 2020 with 15 news shows
scheduled from late January, February, May and early June.

*

It’s unknown, but don’t forget that we may have the
first Hollywood Vampires performance sooner than the tour. With Johnny and Joe Perry
interview for the Grammy’s, and the release of “Rise”, maybe they will also perform
at the 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards, which is set to happen in January 26, 2020.
(Fingers crossed for some nominations too).

*

Next and before the show in Switzerland, it’s been said that there’s a chance
for the Vampires may be performing at the “Download Festival”, a three days festival

which is set to happen from June 12 to June 14 at
the Donington Park in Leicestershire, United Kingdom. The full line-up is yet to be announced.

And there’s more to come! As Glen Sobel revealed some days ago: “There’s more
Hollywood Vamps shows in the planning for next year”…

So, let’s stay tuned!
