In an interview with Billboard recently, shock rocker Alice Cooper confirmed that the brand new Hollyywood Vampire record, which features Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl, Johnny Depp, Joe Perry and more, is “done, mixed and ready to go”.

As previously reported, Cooper will pay tribute to the social group he used to drink with in the ’70s, which included John Lennon, Keith Moon, Harry Nilsson and Ringo Star. The singer has said that the record is “dedicated to all the friends we’ve lost to drugs and alcohol over the years and getting people to come in and cover the songs their friends wrote.”

0170Cooper said: “The album’s done. It’s mixed, ready to go and I’m very, very happy with it. I’m really happy with all the stuff on it. McCartney’s on it. [Ringo Starr’s drummer son] Zak [Starkey]’s on it. Dave Grohl is on it, [AC/DC frontman] Brian Johnson – and in places where you wouldn’t expect them to be, that’s the cool thing.”

“I can’t really say [what covers will be on the album] right now, but if you think of it, who were the Hollywood Vampires? John Lennon was there. Jim Morrison was an early Vampire. We had Jimi Hendrix, Keith Moon of course, Harry Nilsson, Marc Bolan. Those guys were all Vampires.” Catch the band performing live at Rock In Rio.

  2. As a major Alice fan, I would much prefer an originals studio album from him. Unfortunately i dont like any of the bands he covers. This is gonna suck for me. Maybe some originals will be mixed in.
