They're Here To Make You Rock - Hollywood Vampires

Johnny Depp & Alice Cooper
Johnny Depp will get to play rock star with two past collaborators and rock legends.
The movie star has formed a supergroup  Hollywood Vampires, with the original Marilyn Manson Alice Cooper and Aerosmith lead guitarist Joe Perry. The band will perform its first major gig at the 2015 Rock in Rio music festival that will take place in September in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, they have also recorded an album.
"Alice Cooper and Johnny Depp have been partners for a while and now with Joe Perry also on Hollywood Vampires, they will 'rock it out' yet once again."  Alice Cooper stated.
The name of the supergroup is an homage to The Hollywood Vampires, a posse of famous musicians who used alcohol as their method of initiation back in the '70s, according to the festival's statement and Rolling Stone. The "Lair of the Hollywood Vampires" was the famed Rainbow Bar and Grill in West Hollywood. Cooper, The Who's Keith MoonThe BeatlesJohn Lennon and Ringo Star and Harry Nilsson were among the members.

I've been to the Rainbow Bar and Grill - guess that makes me an alcohol sucker too!
