Alice Cooper Thinks Lemmy Would Have Joined Hollywood Vampires

Rock legend Alice Cooper thinks Motörhead bassist Lemmy Kilmister would have joined Hollywood Vampires if he were still alive.

“If he were alive, Lemmy would certainly be a Vampire. He’d probably be our bass player!” Cooper told Kerrang! during an interview.

Hollywood Vampires is a rock supergroup formed in 2015 by Cooper, actor and musician Johnny Depp, and Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry to honor the music of the rock stars who died from excess in the 1970s.

Touring members include or have included Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum of Guns N’ Roses fame, as well as Robert DeLeo from Stone Temple Pilots.

“All of us knew Lemmy, on different levels, because he played with us so many times – everyone in the band had done tours with Lemmy. He was sort of a journeyman,” Cooper said.

“I quit drinking 37 years ago, but he came to me once and said, ‘Alice. I quit drinking.’ And he had a drink in his hand!” he added. “I was sitting there going, ‘That’s great – and that must be Coca-Cola?’ He said, ‘No, there’s a little whiskey in there.’ His idea of not drinking was not drinking a bottle of whiskey each night. Maybe just five or six drinks.”

Hollywood Vampires played “Ace Of Spades” as a tribute to Lemmy and Motörhead during a show at London’s Wembley Arena in June of 2018.
