Alice Cooper Plans 'Hollywood Vampires' Concept Album -

Shock-rock godfather Alice Cooper is planning to record a new concept album which will feature songs inspired by his onetime drinking partners, The Hollywood Vampires. 

The infamous rock-sect, which included Keith Moon, John Lennon, Micky Dolenz, Harry Nilsson, Ring Star and Bernie Taupin, were renowned throughout the 70's and, even after avoiding alcohol for the last 30 years, Cooper still plays tribute to legendary drinking club to this day during his live shows.
 
"We do a thing in our show, which is a tribute to Hollywood Vampires, my drinking club," Cooper explained.

"And it was Keith Moon, John Lennon, Harry Nilsson, Micky Dolenz - a very eclectic bunch of drunks. Half of them are dead, so we do four songs in the show in tribute to them. We do 'Break On Through', 'Revolution', 'My Generation' and Jimi Hendrix's 'Foxey Lady'. I just kind of said, 'We've never done a covers album, let's think about that.' So [producer Bob] Ezrin and I are kind of bouncing it around right now."

Cooper plans to begin recording in December of this year and hopes for a December 2014 release.
