Did His Music Career With Hollywood Vampires Help Building His Fortune?
Johnny Depp founded Hollywood Vampires back in 2015 along with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry, in which they mainly play the covers of iconic musicians’ well-known songs. The band released two studio albums, ‘Hollywood Vampires’ and ‘Rise,’ guest appearances by Dave Grohl, Paul McCartney, and Joe Walsh. Guns N’ Roses icons Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum also joined them as their touring members.
Although they received mostly positive reviews, the total number of online streaming for Hollywood Vampires’ music is quite low. They have been performing in small venues instead of stadiums mainly due to their limited number of fans around the world.
