Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper, and Joe Perry comprise the Hollywood Vampires and they are currently playing in Japan. Unlike many other musicians and celebrities, Johnny Depp has a low-key social media persona and fans are always on the hunt for the latest Depp news. Now, videos of Johnny Depp covering David Bowie’s hit song Heroes are going viral.
On Friday, September 14, 2018, the official Hollywood Vampires Twitter account shared some behind-the-scenes moments and soundcheck clips where fans could get a look at the trio before they performed live.
It appears that Depp’s true fans can’t get enough of him singing and one video of the Hollywood Vampires with Johnny Depp on lead vocals singing Heroes has more than 800,000 views.

Those who want to follow the latest Hollywood Vampires news will want to connect with the band via social media. There is an official website and they are on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
In addition to wrapping up a tour and now performing in Japan, Alice Cooper recently told Ultimate Classic Rock that the band is working on a new album. Songwriter, guitarist, and fellow member of the Hollywood Vampires Tommy Henrikson has written songs for the upcoming album with Depp and Perry.
Alice Cooper is 70-years-old and shows no sign of slowing down. It was in the 70s that Cooper formed the eponymously named celebrity drinking club at LA’s Rainbow Bar and Grill. The drinking club included members and regulars such as Ringo Starr and John Lennon, The Who’s Keith Moon, Micky Dolenz from The Monkees, Joe Walsh and actor John Belushi.
In 2015, Cooper created the Hollywood Vampires band that has seen various touring members but was formed with primary members Cooper, Johnny Depp, and Joe Perry. Three years later fans are still enthusiastic about the band and demand to hear more lead vocals from Johnny Depp has increased.
While Johnny Depp is often the subject of tabloid news, his acting career has continued to thrive and he has 26 projects in development.
Fans of Depp’s acting can look forward to his newest movie Richard Says Goodbye that wrapped up filming in 2017 and will premiere in October at Switzerland’s Zurich Film Festival.
