Johnny Depp, Joe Perry and Alice Cooper perform “We Could Be Heroes”
American rock supergroup Hollywood Vampires celebrate the release of their highly anticipated sophomore album Rise.
Available tomorrow, June 21, across all streaming platforms, the band performed the latest single “Heroes” to a packed house on the outdoor stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday, June 19.
This very special performance marked Johnny Depp’s debut television performance with the band as lead vocalist on the song.
There are however, in the spirit of the Vampires’ original mission, three covers of songs originally written and recorded by legendary rockers who died far too young: the aforementioned, intimate and intense version of David Bowie’s “Heroes,” powerfully performed by Depp at the former Hansa Studios Berlin, the same studio were Bowie recorded the original in 1977; the late Jim Carroll Band’s “People Who Died;” and Johnny Thunders’ “You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory,” sung by guitarist Joe Perry.
Hollywood Vampires recently completed a triumphant seven-city North American tour, which included a sold-out show at the famous Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and were voted the “Best Performance” of 2018 at London’s Wembley Arena.
