Hollywood Vampires “The Boogieman Surprise” (Live) Official Video – Album Rise out June 21st

Fresh off a triumphant seven-city North America tour this week, which included a stop at the famous Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, the HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES have unveiled the brand-new song “The Boogieman Surprise”. At the aforementioned L.A. performance, Steven Tyler, the AEROSMITH frontman and longtime musical partner of Joe Perry, turned up for a guest appearance, as did Marilyn Manson. Johnny Depp took lead vocals on David Bowie’s “Heroes” and the “world’s most expensive bar band,” as proclaimed by Alice Cooper, delivered a live master class of rock ‘n’ roll, which included “The Boogieman Surprise”.


The song has been part of the band’s live set since the 2018 world tour and is a highlight of every HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES live show. Written by the band, it features the undeniable chemistry between rock and roll royalty Perry, Hollywood superstar Depp and shock rock icon Cooper. A laid-back groove, grinding guitars, and smooth strings create an epic, ominous, outsider anthem with Cooper’s vocal sounding as fierce as ever. Their stage telepathy is showcased in the accompanying live video, filmed at the Montreux Jazz Festival 2018.


“Rise”, the band’s second album, is some of the purest, unapologetic and most enjoyable rock and roll of the year, made by masters of the craft and true fans of the form.


Unlike their 2015 debut record, “Rise” consists mainly of original material, written by the band. There are however, in the spirit of the VAMPIRES’ original mission, three covers of songs originally written and recorded by some fellow rockers who died far too young: an intimate and intense version of “Heroes”, again beautifully performed on record by Depp; the JIM CARROLL BAND’s “People Who Died” and Johnny Thunders’s “You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory”, sung by Perry.


Produced by Tommy Henriksen and the HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES, “Rise” will be released on June 21 on earMUSIC as a CD digipak, 2LP+download and digital.


“Rise” track listing:


01. I Want My Now
02. Good People Are Hard To Find
03. Who’s Laughing Now
04. How The Glass Fell


05. The Boogieman Surprise
06. Welcome to Bushwackers (feat. Jeff Beck + John Waters)

CHEAP TRICK To Perform At ‘Linda Perry & Friends: A Night At The Grammy Museum’ Benefit Gala


Rock And Roll Hall Of Famers CHEAP TRICK will perform at a benefit gala honoring Linda Perry. Sharon Osbourne will also appear at the event, which will be held on Saturday, June 29 at The Novo at L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.


Proceeds from “Linda Perry & Friends: A Night At The Grammy Museum” will provide essential support for the Grammy Museum Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to music education and preservation initiatives.


Perry is being recognized at the “Linda Perry & Friends: A Night at The Grammy Museum” gala for her considerable creative accomplishments as a music producer and songwriter and longtime supporter of a number of causes through We Are Hear (the combination record label, publishing house, management company, and production entity she launched with multiplatinum producer Kerry Brown in 2017), which recently raised $1 million for Woolsey Fire recovery with their One Love Malibu festival benefit concert. Perry is a Songwriters Hall Of Fame inductee for working with artists such as P!nk, Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys, Britney Spears and Adele, and was also nominated in 2018 for a Grammy Award for Producer Of The Year, Non-Classical, making her the first woman in 15 years to be nominated in the category.


“Linda Perry is one of the greatest influences on modern pop music, having worked with some of the most successful artists of this generation, which is why we are incredibly grateful to be able to honor her at ‘Linda Perry & Friends: A Night at the Grammy Museum’,” said Michael Sticka, executive director of the Grammy Museum. “She has been deeply influential as both a songwriter and producer, showcasing the legacy one can create not only on stage, but behind the scenes, and is an exemplary artist for the students in our music education programs to look up to.”

“I am excited and honored to be a part of ‘Linda Perry & Friends: A Night At the Grammy Museum’,” said Perry. “It’s even more special knowing the gala benefits music education, something I’m incredibly passionate about. I can’t wait to celebrate with some of the great artists I’ve had the pleasure of working with during my career.”


“Linda Perry & Friends: A Night at the Grammy Museum” gala will begin with a reception that takes over all four floors of the Museum and a silent auction offering an exclusive and unparalleled selection of luxury items, VIP experiences, and one-of-a-kind celebrity memorabilia for bidding guests. The reception and silent auction will be followed by a gala dinner, a live auction, and a tribute concert at The Novo featuring renowned musicians and other artists and the award presentation.

MÖTLEY CRÜE Takes Lead In ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME’s ‘Voice Your Choice’ Fan Vote


According to Cleveland.com, MÖTLEY CRÜE has taken the lead in Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame’s in-museum “Voice Your Choice” fan vote.


Fans can cast their ballot in person at the Rock Hall museum in Cleveland using the “Voice Your Choice” interactive section in the new Hall Of Fame Gallery.


The Los Angeles rockers are currently in the No. 1 spot ahead of BLINK-182, IRON MAIDEN, THE DAVE MATTHEWS BAND and WEEZER. CRÜE has been surging since the release of the band’s biopic “The Dirt” on Netflix in March.


Last fall, Rock Hall nominating committee member Alan Light told SiriusXM that he and his colleagues did in fact take the Rock Hall museum’s “Voice Your Choice” visitor poll into account when considering the 2019 nominees. Stevie Nicks and DEF LEPPARD were the top two leaders all summer and both were nominated. But Rock Hall foundation president Joel Peresman denied the poll’s influence to the Plain Dealer, saying: “The new in-museum voting system does not factor into the nomination process as the members of the nominating committee aren’t made aware of that. And we rely on their independent thinking, which in this case happened to match up.”


Earlier this year, MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx said that the group was told by the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame that it will never be inducted into the institution because of how he and his bandmates “acted.”


Despite the fact that artists are eligible for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame 25 years after the release of their first album or single, iconic hard rock and metal bands like MÖTLEY CRÜE (which has been eligible since 2006), IRON MAIDEN and JUDAS PRIEST have yet to be recognized by the institution, which inducted GUNS N’ ROSES in that group’s first year of eligibility.


Back in 2015, Sixx said that if his band was ever honored into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, he would “probably decline” the nomination, explaining that the Rock Hall “has lost touch with art, songwriting craft, lyrics and influential music.” He explained: “It’s a fixed old-boy network that has lost touch with art, songwriting craft, lyrics and influential music and usually has other agendas at hand. Young bands tell me it’s a joke, and these bands are the future.”


Three months later, CRÜE guitarist Mick Mars told Rolling Stone that he didn’t think the band would ever get the Rock Hall nod. “We were there when the thing was being built; we had to wear hard hats while we were walking around the building site. They were like, ‘One of these days, you guys will be in here!’ Right. [Laughs] I’d have to say, 80 percent no, 20 percent yeah. But it’s like when you’re a kid in kindergarten, and you take a nap and get a gold star as a reward. I don’t need a few handful of people to say that I got a gold star, because I already got it from my fans. I see the crowds, I see the enthusiasm, I see all that stuff, and that’s already satisfying enough for me.”


Drummer Tommy Lee told Rolling Stone that he was somewhat torn on the question of even wanting to be in the Hall in the first place. “I do give a shit about it, because it’s a time-stamp, it’s the acknowledgement of your peers and fans and the music industry,” he explained. “But then again, there’s a part of me that goes, ‘If we don’t, that’s fucking cool, too!’ In my heart, I know that we came, we saw, we kicked its fucking ass; I don’t need a pat on the back, or an induction, or another platinum album or two. Maybe I’m just not good with compliments.”


Singer Vince Neil chimed in: “We’ll probably go in at some point, but we might not all be alive when it happens. Our grandkids will probably have to pick up the awards.”
