Cooper had previously discussed how Vampires guitarist Johnny Deep had written most of the lyrics for Rise, apparently inspired by feelings he experience while receiving negative treatment from the media in recent times. “[T]here were so many things that were written about him that were untrue in the last year," Cooper told AZ Central in a new interview. “I’m sitting there reading a newspaper. Sitting right across from him in Moscow, and I say, ‘It says here you weigh 110 pounds.’ He weighs like … I’ve never seen him look so good… the guy’s in really great shape. ‘It says here that you’re depressed.’ He’s playing guitar and laughing, writing songs … every single thing I read about him was absolutely the opposite of what was going on.”
He went on to discuss the reports of Depp spending $30,000 a month on wine. “He goes, 'Yeah. I don’t drink it,’” Cooper explained. “Wine is a great investment. You put it in your wine cellar and you let it get older. He says, ‘Yeah, I spent $30,000 on wine. I’m not gonna drink that wine.’ … But that’s what it sounds like. ‘He spends $30,000 a month on wine. Oh, he must be drunk all the time.’ He wouldn’t be on stage with me if he was drunk all the time. I can tell you that. Because I wouldn’t be in a band with him.”
