「The Hollywood Vampires」這個名字是來自於一個酒鬼團體,這團體內的人物都是響徹雲霄的傳奇人物,包括了:John Lennon、Harry Nilsson、Keith Moon、Ringo Starr 以及 Alice Cooper 自己,他們都是一群愛喝酒的同好,因為酒而聚在一起;他們晝伏夜出(都是到了晚上才去酒吧),又因為他們都是好萊塢的名人,因此取了這個名字。

對於與 Johnny Depp 這個影視巨星合作,Alice Cooper 表示:「我們經常碰面,漸漸地就成為了知己,我們最近常常一起錄音,而且也錄了不少東西。他( Johnny Depp )是個很酷的傢伙,他不用去刻意做甚麼,他做自己就很屌了。」

電影《黑影家族( Dark Shadow )》是把 Johnny Depp 和 Alice Cooper 牽起來的關鍵,從那之後這兩人便不時地同台演出,Alice Cooper 也因為這樣發現了 Johnny Depp 的音樂才能:「Johnny Depp 有著老派搖滾樂的表演風格,那是非常難得與可貴的。他從來不會刻意誇大並表現自己,這是很多現代的搖滾樂手該好好學習的。與 Johnny Depp 一起搞音樂最令人開心的地方是:他做音樂是因為他真心的喜愛音樂。他最早時也是個音樂人,所以我想如今籌組了樂團應該是最貼近他內心渴望的事情。」
