Alice Cooper supergroup Hollywood Vampires deliver live debut

The Alice Cooper-led supergroup Hollywood Vampires delivered their live debut at The Roxy on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood on Wednesday.

Cooper, Johnny Depp and Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry put the band’s self-titled debut album and live lineup together with the help of several high-profile friends, including bassist Duff McKagan, drummer Matt Sorum, guitarist Tommy Henriksen and pianist/guitarist Bruce Witkin.

The group were joined at The Roxy by guests Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine, Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler, Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell and his wife Etty Lau, drummer Zak Starkey and pop singer Kesha.

The Hollywood Vampires live debut featured tracks from the newly-released covers record, including tunes by The Who, John Lennon, T. Rex and more.

Morello and Butler sat in for a scorching version of Jimi Hendrix’s “Manic Depression”, while Kesha shared vocals with Cooper on Led Zeppelin’s ”Whole Lotta Love.”

The Hollywood Vampires perform a second show at The Roxy on Thursday before playing Brazil’s Rock In Rio on September 24.
