For anyone who has ever wanted to see rock icons Joe Perry or Alice Cooper on stage, you're going to get your chance in a few weeks. Oh yeah, and Johnny Depp plays guitar in the band also.

The Hollywood Vampires was originally formed as a celebrity social drinking group by Alice Cooper in the seventies. Gatherings often included Cooper, and musicians such as John Lennon, Ringo Star and Keith Moon, to name a few. They would gather at the same place, that site being the Rainbow Bar & Grill in Los Angeles.

Five years ago, Cooper assembled a group of musicians to pay homage to victims of alcoholism. The group of musicians gathered by Cooper included Aerosmith's Joe Perry and actor Johnny Depp, who has been a long time guitar player himself. The group kicks off a brief, six-date tour on May 10.

The band is performing at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on May 10.
