Year 1972. Los Angeles. Sunset Blvd. The Rainbow Bar And Grill is one of the most renowned clubs in the city, a real reference point for all the artists who were in town. Even just passing through.
It is a year of great productions. Neil Young publishes Harvest, one of his best works. Deep Purple give birth to the sumptuous "Machine Head", which, shortly thereafter, will become a reference point for hard rock. The unforgettable David Bowie gives birth to "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars".
That same year, on the first floor of the Rainbow Bar And Grill, was born "The Hollywood Vampires", a club founded by a certain Alice Cooper. Among the members: Keith Moon, Ringo Starr, Micky Dolenz and Harry Nilsson. But there were occasional members: John Lennon, Keith Allison, John Belushi, and many others.
All are welcome in this nice and exclusive club, provided they are animated by one and only cause: the adoration of alcohol to his majesty. You drink, in fact, beyond belief!
About 40 years later, in an attempt to recall the glories, the rock group "Hollywood Vampires" was born, with Alice Cooper at the voice, Johnny Depp e Joe Perry on the guitar. In the 2015, the group publishes the homonymous debut album, which includes high-sounding names from the international music scene. Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl, Joe Walsh, Slash, Brian Johnson, Christopher Lee.
The album, although it is composed almost exclusively of covers, is really beautiful and enjoyable. Starting from the beautiful cover, in an ancient book style. The tour is equally enjoyable. To the trio, there are the two Guns N'Roses, Matt Sorum and Duff McKagan!
From the end of May, you will have the opportunity to watch live, in Europe, at a Hollywood Vampires concert. Germany, Czech Republic, Switzerland ... you will be spoiled for choice. Among our favorites, surely the Prague Rocks 2018 and above all the Il Tollwood Sommerfestival 2018. This latter is an excellent solution. Good music, art, shows, markets and gastronomy and, in the background, the beautiful Monaco of Bavaria, all to be discovered.
