Hollywood Vampires say they’ll pay tribute to Lemmy at next week’s Grammy Awards.

The event will take place at the Staples Center, Los Angeles, on February 15th. And the band featuring Alice Cooper, Joe Perry and Johnny Depp, say they’ll perform a Motorhead track in honor of the late rock icon, who died on December 28th at age 70.

Cooper tells Rolling Stone, [Lemmy] was one of those salt-of-the-earth guys. Find me somebody who didn’t love [him]. He’s just one of those guys that’s impossible not to like.”

The band have yet to decide what Motorhead track to play on the night, but Cooper says Ace Of Spades could be in the running – although he’s unsure if he’d copy Lemmy’s distinctive vocals.

Cooper said, “I might do it more Alice Cooper style, but it would still have to have that growl – that guttural voice to make it work. I can’t picture Creedence Clearwater doing that song.”

Hollywood Vampires will also perform Bad As I Am at the bash – a bonus track which features on the deluxe edition on their 2015 self-titled debut. It’s out on February 12th and is available for pre-order.

Cooper will head out on a tour with his solo band for a run of dates in April and May.

  1. So they are playing during the actual live broadcast? That’s cool! It’s surprising how many people that either don’t listen to Motorhead or don’t listen to any metal actually know “Ace Of Spades”.

  2. Given the premise of this band, I guess it is an honor to make their setlist but you have to be dead. I downloaded 5 songs from the debut album and it’s lotsa fun. With Christopher Lee passing away, I wonder who does the intro now? MOTORHEAD has a song CRADLE TO THE GRAVE that would make some sense. ACE OF SPADES is sacred similar to IT’S A LONG WAY TO THE TOP IF YOU WANNA ROCK N ROLL. Nobody else should sing that one. Joe Perry is a great guitarist but he looks like tan mom.

  3. Nobody gave the GIANT’S much of a chance against the undefeated PATRIOTS. I’ll go BRONCOS-31, PANTHERS-27. The PANTHERS went 15-1 and are a more complete team but Manning going out on top is just too good of a story. If this GUNS N ROSES thing works out, who better to play next years half time show. Can Axl lip sink?
