Ahead of Hollywood Vampires' June 20th show in London, England at The SSE Arena Wembley, Alice Cooper tells the Evening Standard bandmate Johnny Depp will shock fans when they hear him play guitar.
“He’s not new to playing on stage, people are going to be very surprised when they hear him play because they know him as Jack Sparrow. When they see a guitar in his band they going to say ‘wait a minute I didn’t have any idea he could play like that’. He’s a real guitar player. I wouldn’t be working with anybody that wasn’t as good as anybody I’ve worked with normally.
“Last year we were testing the waters to see if people were even going to be interested in what we were doing and we found that they were, we got great reactions and sold out quite a few places. I think a lot of that might have been out of curiosity, Joe Perry, Johnny Depp and Alice Cooper what a weird combination.”
Hollywood Vampires will make their UK debut this June with special guests The Darkness and The Damned.
