Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper, and Joe Perry are planning a pretty awesome spring and summer together, on the road and in the studio. So far it's been an exciting year, but with a full calendar of tour dates from May 21 to July 8 listed on their website, they've hardly begun their 2018 adventure. See the Hollywood Vampires Website for tour dates.
Hollywood Vampires frontman Alice Cooper, who turned 70 on February 4, feared he may not see his birthday, much less the summer tour with Johnny Depp and Joe Perry, according to his interview with Billboard, after not one but two rather amazing brushes with what he thought might be sudden death.
Alice Cooper believed he might be nuked when visiting his manager Shep Gordon in Hawaii. Alice just happened to be there during the now infamous nuclear false alarm.
"You never want to see the words 'imminent,' 'nuclear' and 'not a drill' ever in one sentence. I'm looking at it going, 'Are you kidding me?' My theology told me I'm gonna go from one paradise to another one, but it's still a bit of a shock to think, 'In about 18 minutes, I'm gonna be fried.' When it blew over everybody was laughing about it, but believe me, it was scary."
"My car looked like a piece of art... Somebody was trying to keep me from getting to 70, but I'm still here."
