Johnny Depp Grammys Video: Watch Hollywood Vampires Grammy Awards Tribute To Lemmy Kilmister!
Johnny Depp and his band Hollywood Vampires performed a tribute to Lemmy Kilmister by playing Motorhead’s “Ace Of Spades” at Monday’s Grammy Awards. Watch below.
Depp formed the so-called “supergroup” with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry just last year to celebrate long-gone rockers. They released a self-titled album, made up of covers, this past September. That same month, the band gave its debut performance at the Roxy Theatre in Hollywood.
Now, taking the Grammys stage inside the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the Hollywood Vampires gave its first-ever television performance. The trio used their time in the spotlight to premiere a song called “As Bad As I Am,” and pay tribute to Lemmy. As Gossip Cop reported, the revered Motorhead front man died in late December at age 70 after a short battle with cancer.
With his group, Lemmy won a Grammy for Best Metal Performance in 2005. Cooper has been nominated twice over the years, while Perry has won several Grammy awards with Aerosmith. Depp has long expressed an interest in music, but this marks his first turn as a Grammys performer.
The Lemmy tribute is just one of many “in memoriam” segments that were lined up for “music’s biggest night.” Lady Gaga signed on for a tribute to David Bowie, the Eagles came on board to honor Glenn Frey, and Maurice White was to be recognized, too.
