Johnny Depp Alice Cooper Joe Perry McBusted Jack White Audioslave

What do Johnny Deep and Alice Cooper have in common? The desire to create a very exciting new supergroup it would seem. Eclectic actor Depp has joined forces with rock stars Alice Copper, Joe Perry, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum to form The Hollywood Vampires - a collaboration announced at the beginning of this year that will debut with two live Los Angeles gigs in September and perform Rock in Rio in Brazil later in the same month.

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry will also join the line-up. It's no secret that the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star and Hollywood heartthrob has a foot in the music industry, it being a big part of his childhood and teenage years.

The Hollywood Vampires first came about in the 1970s and, while members happened to be some of the biggest rockstars in the world at the time, it was formed as drinking club rather than a band, where members were enlisted on whether or not they could drink the other members under the table. Among them were former Beatles John Lennon and Ringo Starr, as well as Keith Moon, Harry Nilsson and Bernie Taupin.

Aerosmith Songs Land Steven Tyler, Joe Perry In Hall Of Fame


Steven Tyler Aerosmith Joe Perry

Steven Tyler probably thought that he could receive no higher accolade than being asked to participate in the American Idol judging panel so imagine the joy that the Aerosmith frontman must have experienced when he discovered that he’d be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, along with his co-writer Joe Perry.

Associated Press broke the news that Tyler and Perry will be landed with the Hall of Fame honor for the creative prowess that he has displayed on songs such as ‘Dude Looks Like A Lady’ and ‘Love In An Elevator.’ Tyler and Perry have not always enjoyed the most harmonious of working relationships but they recently released their 15th studio album, entitled Music From Another Dimension. Joining Tyler and Perry in the Hall of Fame will be Lou Gramm and Mick Jones of Foreigner, as well as Holly Knight, JD Souther and Tony Hatch.

Holly Knight wrote the songs ‘Love Is A Battlefield’ and ‘Invincible’ for Pat Benatar as well as penning several of Tina Turner’s hits. Hatch, meanwhile, made his name by writing songs like ‘Downtown,’ for Petula Clark, during the British Invasion of the 1960s. Foreigner were among the bands at the forefront of the 80s rock ballad sound, with Jones and Gramm churning out hits like ‘I Wanna Know What Love Is’ and ‘Cold As Ice.’

Steven Tyler turns up for The Late Show

If you believe the rumours, things haven't been going smoothly in the Aerosmith camp of late, with reports suggesting that the admittedly often turbulent rock band might be splitting up. Well, the relaxed demeanour of front man Steven Tyler as he turned up for David Letterman's Late Show suggested that such aspersions may be far fetched. Tyler looked in good spirits has he arrived in flares, a purple shirt and a jacket to speak to the chat show host along with the rest of his band.

'What Could Have Been Love' - New Aerosmith Video Unveiled


Aerosmith Steven Tyler Joe Perry

Aerosmith have released the video for their latest single ‘What Could Have Been Love’ and they’re really playing up to the ‘classic rock’ tag, with a video stuffed full of classic rock signifiers. Classic American convertible car? Song being played on radio of aforementioned convertible car? Check! Bit of a bar-room brawl? Check! Prominent bottle of tequila? Check! Beautiful women looking sultry in smoky bar? Check! Beautiful young men selected to act out the love interest, because the band members are now all old enough to collect their pensions and the record label’s still clinging onto the notion that sex sells? Check!

The band will be releasing their 15th studio album, Music From Another Dimension, on November 6, 2012 – it’s their first studio album release in 11 years, though Steven Tyler joked “it’s not that it took 10 years, but that we were busy getting ready.” Joe Perry said “This is the album we wanted to make since the band got back together in 1984… Can’t complain about number one singles or album-driven sold-out world tours, as we blaze the Aerosmith trail with our fans. But this is the record that when the five of us are in a room yelling turn up the volume, that room could be 1325 Commonwealth Avenue (a reference to the apartment that the band used to share together).”

Aerosmith have clearly decided against breaking the mould in the 11 years since they last released any new material and instead have opted for the ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’ approach to their new songs. So, if you’re a fan of emotive key changes framed by noodling guitar solos (i.e. if you’re a fan of Aerosmith, generally), you’ll love ‘What Could Have Been Love.’
