NIGHTS WITH ALICE COOPER WINS KERRANG AWARD!

SOURCE:  KERRANG.COMKerrang! Awards 2016

We waited a whole year for it, but now our 35th birthday / awards are sadly over. Sob!

Three generations of rockstars  – everyone from Iron Maiden, to Deftones, to blink-182, to A Day To Remember – came, drank, and got merry. Perhaps some a little too merry. Most importantly, some of those rockstars were crowned 2016 Kerrang! Award winners, and stumbled up to the stage to pick up their K!-shaped trophies, while others lost out, and spent the evening crying into their pizza. There, there, guys.

“I’m just a year older than Kerrang! And every day my knees hurt and I’m out of breath putting my socks on,” says Kerrang! Editor James McMahon. “But what the night’s mayhem confirmed to me, is that even three and a half decades into it’s existence, Kerrang! is as fit and lithe as it’s ever been. No other brand could unite stars old and new like Kerrang!. Bound by booze, yes, but by a shared spirit and passion for rock ‘n’ roll too. Because the night was, from start to finish, one of those nights that sear themselves into your memory – where fans, bands, mag, friends old and new, became one mass of love for a style of music a group of people were so obsessed with 35 years ago they started a magazine, just because one didn’t exist to cover it. By fans, for fans. Thirty five years young. Last night was the best birthday party ever.”

Now, we’ve got an epic clean-up job to undertake before we scoot off to Download Festival (once we’ve figured out who threw up on our suitcases…) So while we do that, why don’t you guys take a look at the winners…

REVIEW: Hollywood Vampires honor the dead with a show full of life

VERONA, N.Y. — When three legends take one stage, and one of those legends is Alice Cooper, it’s hard to pay attention to anyone else.

Rock supergroup Hollywood Vampires, featuring Cooper, actor Johnny Depp and Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry, kicked off their summer tour on Tuesday night (May 24) at the Turning Stone Resort Casino.

At 68, Cooper is the picture of vivacity. He commanded the stage with vigorous vocals, glam rock swagger and full “vampire” attire. (Lestat, not Edward Cullen). His frilly poet shirt was splattered with blood, and despite wearing both a corset and skintight leather pants, Cooper missed no opportunities to gyrate his hips.

Perry, rock royalty dressed in deep purple, seemed to have an endless supply of guitars at his disposal. Around 8:30 p.m., Perry smashed his white guitar and threw pieces of it into the crowd.

It was only the fifth song of the night.

Another white guitar appeared in its place, only to be traded for an orange and white arrow during “Break on Through,” and later, a classic black shredder. He played just as he always has, with razor sharp licks and even a behind-the-head solo on “Stop Messin’ Around.”

Next to the wildly confident Cooper and Perry, global megastar and sex symbol Johnny Depp looked almost boyish.

Dressed in a simple black vest over a collared white shirt, Depp played the right-hand man for most of the show, backing up Cooper’s vocals and Perry’s guitar expertise. With a toothy smile, Cooper played down Depp’s celebrity, calling him “Johnny D from Kentucky.”

But Depp is no Hollywood hack. He showed off impressive chops during “As Bad As I Am” with a picking style to rival Keith Richards. One audience member remarked Depp looked like he could’ve been Richards’ son.

Depp seemed to enjoy taking a backseat to Cooper. He smiled coyly at the massive cheers following his solos, and wiggled his fingers at fans.

That’s important to note: Johnny Depp does not wave, he wiggles. It’s like a little piece of Captain Jack Sparrow never left him. The audience loved it, cheering wildly every time he murmured a “thank you” into the mic.
