Last July, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry said he did a recording session with Paul McCartney, Detroit’s own Alice Cooper and Johnny Depp. But since then, nothing else has been said…until now.
We spoke with Paul in December and he tells us Depp asked him to take part in the session, which is part of a tribute to the Hollywood Vampires, a drinking club of the early ’70s that included Cooper, John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Harry Nilsson, Micky Dolenz and Keith Moon.
McCartney, Cooper, Perry and Depp recorded “Come and Get It,” a song McCartney wrote for Badfinger. It will likely be part of, or tied in with, Cooper’s upcoming album of classic rock covers.
The four men have numerous links.
