“Here’s a mosey back Monday photo I’ve never shared before – one from the time the Hollywood Vampires and Tim Burton visited Dracula’s Castle. At the time we had Robert Deleo on bass and Matt Sorum on drums. Great tour! The Vampires will be coming back to Europe next year, and hopefully elsewhere.” – Cereal Kyler on Instagram.
The photo was taken by Cereal Kyler, at Dracula’s Castle (Bran Castle), in Romania, few days prior to their gig in Bucharest on their 2016 Tour. A similar photo taken few moments after/before was previously released in July 4, 2016
Kyler Clark shared two photos (I think only only the first is a new…) on his instagram, talking a little bit of what was happening during that time:
Tim Burton and Johnny
at Dracula’s Castle (June 2016)
“This one is of Tim Burton
and Johnny Depp at Castle Bran, also known as Castle Dracula. The Hollywood Vampires paid a visit a few years back along with Mr Burton, and the entire touring party got to wander the grounds and have an incredible dinner. Also in this photo is Tommy Henriksen just behind JD and
Brian Sateia (Guitar Technician) between JD and Tim.”
Ps. A similar photo of the same moment can be seen HERE.
Johnny and Joe Perry at Johnny’s studio (Early 2015)
“A throwback to when the
was still developing and recording their first album in Los Angeles at
Johnny Depp’s home studio. This is a shot of JD and Joe Perry listening to some playback while waiting for a special guest to arrive.” Ps. The “Special Guest” was Paul McCartney.
New footage from the “I Want My Now” video, shows Johnny arriving at the Hansa Studios in Berlin, last June 5, 2018 for rehearse and record with his fellow Vampires, “Heroes”, “I Want My Now” and some other songs for the album “Rise”.
“#fbf (flashback Friday) – On Alcatraz Island when on tour with Hollywood Vampires, went to see Whitey Bulger’s cell that Johnny Depp played brilliantly in the film ‘Black Mass’.” – wrote Matt Sorum ex-Hollywood Vampires drummer on Instagram.

Today, August 19, is celebrated worldwide the Photography Day, a day to celebrate the art, craft, science and history of photography. Thankfully to this invention, we can register the most beautiful images of the world, and obviously Johnny is one of them.
My special thanks today goes to Kyler Clark (Cereal Kyler) for registering Johnny’s photos while touring with the Hollywood Vampires, Ross Halfin with his breathtaking black and white photos, Greg Williams for his editorial photos, Tommy Henriksen for always updating, taking and recording the funniest videos with Johnny and all the people who contributes taking and sharing photos and videos of this work of art in human form known as Johnny Depp. Without you, this blog would never exist. Thank you all for your hard work! ❤️
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”.
“…Johnny Depp who doesn’t get any credit
he really deserve for being a musician and outstanding f*cking human being he
is…” – Tommy Henriksen.
Tommy thanks all the people who
made the new Hollywood Vampires’ album “Rise” a success.
Tommy really deserves a HUGE thank you for
producing this masterpiece!
Also, I’d like to wish good luck for Alice
Cooper, Tommy, Glen Sobel and Kyler Clark (CerealKyler) who are starting today the Alice
Cooper’s new tour “Ol’ Black Eyes is Back” with a show in Connecticut. Up until now,
all the Vampires are on their musical projects: Chris Wyse, the bassist, has a show on The Viper Room (the nightclub once owned by Johnny during the 90’s) in
two weeks. Joe Perry and the keyboardist Buck Johnson are playing along the
Aerosmith on their Las Vegas concert residency at Park Theater. Johnny is the only one a little far from his music life, but was/is in
London with his friends enjoying some music. I have my doubts about what he
may be really doing there, and I would be surprised if it’s something related to the
upcoming movie in January…
Curiosities from the behind the scenes of “Heroes”.
Tommy revealed a little bit more from how was the day when they recorded “Heroes”: First it was recorded live at Hansa Tonstudio (the same where David Bowie recorded the original version) in Berlin, Germany, on their day-off in a hot day and with no air conditioner. That’s why we see a sweat Johnny. As thought, it was recorded by their photographer, Kyler Clark (Cereal Kyler) and directed and edited by Louis Marciano, known for making videos for Alice Cooper, Tommy Henriksen, Bon Jovi, Marilyn Manson, Guns N’ Roses and a lot more.
