Nobody does covers like the Hollywood Vampires.
When Alice Cooper finally turned his legendary 70s drinking club The Hollywood Vampires into an epic supergroup last year featuring Johnny Depp and Joe Perry as fixed members, rock fans everywhere went absolutely nuts. They went on to release a self-titled covers album, and performed several more extraordinary covers (many of which were tributes to Cooper's deceased friends who once belonged to his club) at Rock in Rio festival before embarking on their first concert tour this year.

Johnny Depp joins the Hollywood Vampires
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.
