New outtake photo of Johnny taken in 2016!

“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


#fbf On Alcatraz Island when on tour W Hollywood Vampires , Went to see Whitey Bulger’s cell that Johnny Depp played brilliantly in the film Black Mass Al Capone and many other criminals were housed there. Only 3 men ever escaped the island but they never did find them and were possibly eaten by the massive Great White Sharks in San Fransisco bay photo by @cerealkyler

I’m not going to be doing the Vampires this year, because I felt like I needed to get back into my own driver’s seat. That was fun. I like hanging out with those guys and Alice Cooper is a hero of mine, so is Joe Perry and I’ve known Johnny Depp since the ‘80s so it was great to get back and talk and hang out with him. He’s just a really great guy, super cool and intelligent, and good hanging out. That was fun and that’s going to be a nice little memory and piece of my life.
