Though nothing, nothing will keep us together… We can beat them, forever and ever… Oh, we can be heroes… Just for one day.” ♪
press conference for “Sweeney Todd” in London, 11 years ago in 2008, Johnny was asked if he based his singing voice on any person in particular once he sounded a bit like David Bowie, and he answered:
“A couple of people have said that, which is interesting because I wouldn’t ever dream of attempting to channel David Bowie. He’s a big hero of mine. If there’s a similarity it wasn’t intentional. And it’s a nice compliment.”
10 years later, last year,
in May 17, Johnny surprised everybody, singing live for the first time on stage,
on the Hansa Studios, in Berlin, same studio where Bowie recorded his masterpiece. Johnny recorded his cover when the “Hollywood Vampires 2018 Tour” stopped in Germany, and is set to be released on the upcoming “Hollywood Vampires” second album, along new songs with Johnny singing.
While we wait for this masterpiece, let’s enjoy Johnny singing “Heroes” live for a crowd of over 55,000 people,
last June 22, at “Hellfest Open Air Festival 2018″ in Clisson, France.
We are proud, and I bet David Bowie would be proud too.. KEEP SINGING JOHNNY!

Tommy Henriksen is teasing us with a lot of footages made on the last Hollywood Vampires Tour. He is finishing something special and says to have “a really good stuff coming”, and that we “gonna trip when you see these stuffs”.
Ps. I really would like a documentary… Their photographer, Cereal Kyler, kept sharing photos with the hashtag “Documentary” or “DocumentaryPhotography” on his instagram while on tour, and in some videos we also could see he filming them too… Is they planning something? Finger crossed!

elusive butterfly of love, the lovely and talented, the master of disguise, the fabulous, JOHNNY
Throughout this tour, Alice introduces the Hollywood Vampires’ members
in the middle of the last song “School’s Out”, and Johnny is always introduced after Joe Perry and before Alice Cooper. While Joe is introduced, Johnny sneaks
off and hides himself somewhere close, on the left side of the stage, either behind
the curtains, the sound boxes, stage fans or even next to Buck Johnson while
he plays keyboard. Later, when he is found and dragged
back by Alice to center of the stage, he sometimes throws a guitar pick to the
crowd, always smiles, and kinda shy, waves to the crowd thanking the love
and support from the fans.
This is the first part of a compilation I’ve made of all the funny times Johnny
hides himself, and Alice Cooper introduces him to the crowd, from show N°1 in
May 17, in USA, to the Show N°10, in June 7, in Sweden.
