    Watch Johnny Depp Sing David Bowie’s ‘Heroes’ With Hollywood Vampires



    Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8VnYZLWr_s


    Johnny Depp and his bandmates in the supergroup Hollywood Vampires, which includes Alice Cooper and Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry, holed up in Berlin’s Hansa Studios last year to record a cover of one of David Bowie’s biggest hits, “Heroes.” The Thin White Duke himself had cut that very track there a little more than four decades prior.

    Video of the Vampires’ session, which took place on June 5th, 2018, shows Cooper entering the studio as Perry works an eBow to approximate the soaring feedback Robert Fripp recorded for Bowie in the summer of ’77. The band kicks in, and Depp sings the song’s iconic opening “I … ” with his mohawk pulled back and a feather hanging in the back. You can see sweat on his face before it cuts to live-performance footage of the band and tour-bus footage. Cooper stands beside Depp deferentially in the studio and plays maracas onstage.

    Although the band started out as a covers group, paying tribute to Cooper’s “dead drunk friends,” they’ve expanded their repertoire into originals on Rise; “Heroes” is one of the few covers on the album. It released the original song “The Boogieman Surprise” last month and “Who’s Laughing Now” in April.

    Blabbermouth, which premiered the video, reports that the rest of the band on Rise includes Alice Cooper drummer Glen Sobel, the Cult’s bassist Chris Wyse and Aerosmith keyboardist Buck Johnson. Cooper’s guitar player Tommy Henricksen, who plays guitar in the Vampires, co-produced the LP with the band.

    Bowie co-wrote “Heroes” with Brian Eno and recorded it in July and August of 1977. According to legend, the lyrics were inspired by Bowie seeing producer Tony Visconti and backup singer Antonia Maaß kissing by the Berlin wall; Bowie never revealed the lovers identities, Visconti says, because he was having an affair with Maaß. “I thought, of all the places to meet in Berlin, why pick a bench underneath a guard turret on the Wall?” Bowie said of the inspiration.

    Question

    A still from HBO's "Chernobyl" ...




    Russia to create its own Chernobyl series that blames CIA for disaster

    Russian TV is offering its own patriotic take on the 1986 Chernobyl disaster — one that features a heroic effort to thwart an American spy who has infiltrated the doomed nuke plant.

    The Russian spin comes in response to HBO’s well-received miniseries “Chernobyl,” which depicted the aftermath of the explosion in then-Soviet Ukraine.

    The series follows KGB officers tracking the CIA agen, and uncovering his espionage efforts, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

    There’s no air date for the series but it’ll be broadcast on state-funded station NTV, known for its pro-Kremlin programming. It received 30 million ($460,000) in funding from the culture ministry, the outlet said.

    Director Alexei Muradov justified the story by citing a conspiracy theory that says an enemy intelligence agent was on site on the day of the explosion, the Moscow Times reported.

    “One theory holds that Americans had infiltrated the Chernobyl nuclear power plant and many historians do not deny that, on the day of the explosion, an agent of the enemy’s intelligence services was present at the station,” the director said, AV Club reported

    Have you ever heard someone tell you that they love you even though “X” is wrong with you, or that they love you even though you had "X" tendency? Do you think about others in this way and consider it Unconditional Love? Teal Swan explains that this common way of loving, is the opposite of unconditional love.

    What I really like about Swan's presentations is that she never makes them gender specific. She is very helpful...unconditionally...

    Johnny Depp was ageless...until he looked old. He looks old to me suddenly. It's a bit disconcerting.

    He's about my age, but he's been hitting the booze and the drugs pretty hard in his lifetime.

    yeah, that happens...I think it is a matter of Hollywood makeup.

    John Travolta is still kinda sorta swinging his thang...

    Kevin Costner and Dennis Quaid and Mel Gibson not so much...

    Question

    For those interested in this stuff ...

    UFO LEAK OF THE CENTURY.
    Richard Dolan Analyzes the Admiral Wilson Notes.


    Richard Dolan

    Rumors of secret special access programs to study retrieved UFO technology have been with us for many years. Now a major leak provides powerful confirmation of that truth and much more. Skeptics will be hard pressed to debunk this. The case for "deep black" UFO-related programs beyond formal government oversight just became much stronger.

    wow, but it sounds like a bunch of monkeys standing around a phone booth. But, in reality, what the contractors are doing IS private business...huge business, but private. Any thoughts on that?
