Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp has teamed up with rocker Alice Cooper and Aerosmith’s lead guitarist Joe Perry to form a new band called Hollywood Vampires.
Cooper himself has confirmed in a post on his website.
“Alice Cooper and Johnny Depp have been partners for a while and now with Joe Perry also on Hollywood Vampires, they will ‘rock it out’ yet once again,” Cooper wrote.
In the same post, the music star also revealed Hollywood Vampires already scored their debut gig with a scheduled performance at the 2015 Rock in Rio music festival which will be held in September in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
The newly formed band will be joined by other tapped performers, which among others include System of a Down, Queens of the Stone Age, and Faith No More.
“Confirmed! #RockInRio announces Debut Of #TheHollywoodVampires! The #Supergroup, featuring #AliceCooper, #JohnnyDepp and #JoePerry plays on the same night as #QueensOfTheStoneAge and #SystemOfADown,” Cooper posted on Instagram.
The Hollywood Vampires actually is the name of a famous band in the 70s. Cooper fronted the music act alongside the likes of John Lennon, Harry Nilsson, Keith Moon, and Ringo Starr.
