City Slang: Alice joined onstage by Depp

Posted By on Sat, Dec 1, 2012 at 10:18 AM

Alice Cooper was joined onstage in LA by actor Johnny Depp. Weird, but totally true.

The show, part of the “Raise the Dead” tour, took place at the Orpheum Theater in LA on Thursday evening.

According to a press release, Depp helped the band rip through covers of The Doors' “Break On Through (To The Other Side)”, the Beatles' “Revolution”, Jimi Hendrix's “Foxy Lady” and the Who's “My Generation” - all in tribute to Alice's old drinking buddies in the notorious Hollywood Vampires. Plus they took on Cooper classics “I'm Eighteen”, “Under My Wheels”, “Poison” and “Schools Out”.
