Grammys 2016: Lemmy tribute performed by Hollywood Vampires, featuring Johnny Depp
The Hollywood Vampires — the supergroup currently comprised of Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper, and a rotating cast of high-profile musicians, including Joe Perry — performed at the Grammys Monday night to pay tribute to the late rock legend Ian Fraser “Lemmy” Kilmister.
In addition to honoring Kilmister’s famed group Motörhead with a high-octane rendition of “Ace of Spades,” the Hollywood Vampires also debuted its new song “As Bad As I Am.”
The Hollywood Vampires is a revival of a celebrity drinking club founded by Cooper in the 1970s that included people like John Lennon, Joe Walsh, and Marc Bolan. The fresh incarnation of the group released a self-titled album in September 2015 that included guest spots from Slash, Joe Perry, Paul McCartney, Perry Farrell, and others.
