Watch Tom Morello and Geezer Butler Play “Manic Depression” with Hollywood Vampires | VIDEO


The Hollywood Vampires made their debut last night with a star-studded show, and you can catch two clips of the action in the videos shown below.

The band—formed by the nucleus of Alice Cooper, Joe Perry and Johnny Depp—performed an hour-long set of covers at the Roxy Theatre on the Sunset Strip to celebrate their self-titled debut album, released September 11. They were rounded out by a crew that at various times included guitarist Tom Morello, Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler, the former Guns N’ Roses rhythm section of bassist Duff McKagan and drummer Matt Sorum, drummer Zak Starkey, guitarist Tommy Henriksen, keyboardist Brusce Witkin, and singers Perry Farrell and Kesha.

The set included the Who’s “My Generation,” which the Hollywood Vampires released as their debut track in late August, as well as the Doors’ “Break on Through,” John Lennon’s “Cold Turkey,” and Spirit’s “I Got a Line on You.”

The evening’s top performance undoubtedly went to Morello. The Rage Against the Machine guitarist showed up for a triumphant rendition of the Jimi Hendrix tune “Manic Depression,” for which he ripped out a wild solo and even played with his teeth.

You can watch that clip (featuring Geezer Butler on bass) below, along with a video of the group performing Cooper’s “School’s Out” and a rocked-up version of Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall.”
