HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES – Live in Rio
BAND URL: https://www.hollywoodvampires.com/
Recorded in Rio back in 2015 by the magnificent Hollywood Vampires, this CD/DVD is a riveting and massively entertaining experience that sees Alice Cooper, Joe Perry, Tommy Henriksen, Johnny Depp, Matt Sorum, and Duff McKagan tear through some of the best and most beloved rock songs of all time with confidence and gusto. On top of that, Zak Starkey (The Who), Andreas Kisser (Sepultura), and Lzzy Hale (Halestorm) make guest appearances throughout, and they do so in grand style.
There is so much vigor, enthusiasm, and unadulterated fun coursing through this performance, and you can easily tell that these guys are having a blast on stage. It looks and sounds stunning, and how could one possibly resist the infectious hooks of ‘I Got a Line on You’, ‘Whole Lotta Love’, ‘School’s Out’, and ‘Break on Through (to the Other Side)’ just to list a few examples? Live in Rio captures the heart, soul, and essence of timeless rock ‘n’ roll music, and the entire affair is basically akin to seeing and hearing some of your all-time favorite musicians performing some of your most cherished tunes. Yes, I am madly in love with this great-sounding output.
