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!
“We’ve never had an argument. We have never had one argument. I’ve never heard anybody’s voice raise at anybody else. I’ve never had anybody ever stomp out of a rehearsal or recording session. It’s been nothing but laughs. When everything’s working and everybody respects everybody, you just don’t get that ego thing. It’s great.” – Alice Cooper talks about the Hollywood Vampires’ members in a interview for the “Revolver”, last July 12.
“What’s your favorite track on the new Hollywood Vampires album RISE?”
The question made by the Hollywood Vampires on their social media, was posted along some new photos like this taken by Ross Halfin showing Johnny and Joe rehearsing at Sandia Casino, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, last May 16.
Now answering this tough question: The album is so freaking perfect that it’s almost impossible for me to choose only one. Even the interludes are perfect. I’m planning to make a special post next July 21 to celebrate to first month of the release, but for now if I’d had to choose my top 4, I’d say: “Heroes”, “The Boogieman Surprise”, “Git From ‘round Me”, and “Mr. Spider”
Yesterday (July 10), was released a new video by Grammy Awards on Instagram featuring Johnny on his house and Joe Perry through video call answering some questions about the favorite part of being in a band, what instruments they’d like to play, the amount of guitars owned, how the rock and roll scene will be 100 years in the future and their advice for those who are looking to make a career our of their passion.
“…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…
“Cooper: Alexa? Please play the new Hollywood Vampires’ song… Johnny: Please. Cooper: Now. Johnny: Please. Cooper: Now. Johnny: Please. Cooper: Now. Johnny: Alexa? Please…”
Johnny, Alice Cooper and Joe Perry having some fun in a new outtake from their album interview released last June 22. Now I wonder if Johnny has ever used Alexa or Siri to ask crazy questions like this one about Tarzan’s beard…
