Performing is in Hollywood Vampires’ bloodBetween launching simultaneous campaigns to become the president of the United States and the prime minister of England with a rebooted version of his 1972 hit “Elected,” the 68-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer is also spending the summer touring with his own band and Hollywood Vampires, the supergroup he fronts with actor Johnny Depp and Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry.The band — which takes its name from Cooper’s old Los Angeles drinking club with Harry Nilsson, Mickey Dolenz, John Lennon and Keith Moon — performs a mix of classic rock covers and originals from its 2015 self-titled album.What are you doing on tour?The music business is a bit of a fraternity — everybody knows each other.When you get that many alpha males in one place you would think there’s a lot of ego.Is this the full Alice Cooper tour with the snake and guillotine and all that?The Vampires show — we bill ourselves as the world’s most expensive bar band.What do you remember about hanging out with the original Hollywood Vampires at the Rainbow?Honestly, we would go up there every single night and we would sit there and it was the only place where all these rock guys who had the pressure of performing concerts and doing interviews and radio and selling themselves could be with a bunch of guys exactly on their level.People would just tell road stories:All these people were doing things we would never do, and I’m the one who survived.When we do “Dead Drunk Friends,” I tell the audience the entire history of the Hollywood Vampires.Aidin Vaziri is The San Francisco Chronicle’s pop music critic.Weill Hall, Green Music Center, Sonoma State University, 1801 E.
