The Grammys are shaping up to be very exciting this year. Just recently, it was confirmed that Lady Gaga would be paying tribute to David Bowie and now we have even more awesome news.
Johnny Depp will also be performing at the Grammys this year! His band Hollywood Vampires, are set to premiere their new song “As Bad as I Am”. In case you didn’t know, Hollywood Vampires, is a heavy metal band that consists of superstars such as Alice Cooper, Joe Perry from Aerosmith, Duff McKagan from Guns N’ Roses and Johnny Depp himself. The band will also be paying tribute to Lemmy, the frontman of Motörhead, who died of cancer in December of 2015.
As to the reason why the Hollywood Vampires decided to pay tribute to Lemmy, Alice Cooper revealed in his recent interview with Rolling Stone: “We started this band as a means to toast our ‘dead drunk friends’ at the Rainbow [on Sunset], all the ghosts in the bar,” Cooper said. “And now I guess Lemmy is involved in that, too.”
Even if you don’t really care about the band, or you were never a fan of Motörhead, and you don’t have a habit of watching the Grammys, this year you should probably tune in. After all, Johnny Depp will be performing, and who doesn’t like Johnny Depp, am I right?
