Unlike HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES‘ 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”; the JIM CARROLL BAND‘s “People Who Died” and Johnny Thunders‘s “You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory”, sung by Perry.
Completing the HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES live lineup are rock star musician friends Glen Sobel (ALICE COOPER) on drums, Chris Wyse (THE CULT) on bass, and Buck Johnson (AEROSMITH) on keyboard and vocals.
