Hollywood Vampires, featuring Alice Cooper, Joe Perry, Johnny Depp and Duff McKagan among others, will perform a tribute to Lemmy at the Grammy Awards on 15 February. The Motörhead frontman, who died on 28 December, will be celebrated by the rock supergroup during the awards show, and Cooper has told Rolling Stone that the band are considering a possible cover of Motörhead’s anthem ‘Ace Of Spades.’

HV albumThe Vampires’ appearance will also feature the debut performance of ‘As Bad As I Am,’ to be featured as a bonus track on the deluxe edition of their self-titled debut album. First released last September, the album’s extended version will be out at the end of next week (12 February). The deluxe format will also feature previously unreleased covers of The Who‘s ‘I’m A Boy’ and Love’s ‘7 And 7 Is.’

“We started this band as a means to toast our ‘dead drunk friends’ at the Rainbow, all the ghosts in the bar, and now I guess Lemmy is involved in that, too,” Cooper told Rolling Stone. “Lemmy was one of those salt-of-the-earth guys, Find me somebody who didn’t love Lemmy. He’s just one of those guys that’s impossible not to like.”

Meanwhile, we’re also wishing happy birthday to Alice himself, who turns 68 today. He was born Vincent Furnier in Detroit on 4 February, 1948.
