According to Rolling Stone, the all-star supergroup The Hollywood Vampires will be honoring the late Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead with a hard and heavy tribute performance. The group will include Alice CooperJoe Perry of Aerosmith, actor Johnny Depp, and Duff McKagan of Guns N' Roses among others.

"Lemmy was one of those salt-of-the-earth guys," said Cooper. "Find me somebody who didn't love Lemmy. He's just one of those guys that's impossible not to like."

Cooper continued, "He was always funny. I'm a 'healed' alcoholic and I haven't had anything to drink in 35 years. A lot of people that drink always feel a little but like they owe an explanation to me. A couple weeks before his death, Lemmy came up to me and said, 'Alice, I've quit drinking.' And he's got a glass in his hand. And I go, 'Really?' And he says, 'Yeah, I don't drink whiskey anymore. I drink vodka.' And I went, 'Lemmy, do you think your liver has any idea what color the alcohol is?' He said, 'Well it's a step down from whiskey.' and I went, 'OK. Any step's a good step."
