Ryan Adams Invites Johnny Depp On Stage To Cover Danzig in London [WATCH]
With the release of his latest self-titled album just this past Sept. 9, Ryan Adams has been making his rounds of promotion, playing shows all over the globe. And just last night (Sept. 18), the singer-songwriter stopped by London's Shepherd's Bush Empire and brought along a friend to cover a Danzig tune – actor Johnny Depp.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star took to the stage during the artist's encore and played guitar on a rendition of both "Mother" by Danzig "Kim," which is off Adams' latest album.
Depp is reportedly featured on the B-side of Adams' track "Gimme Something Good" –– the first single from the album as well as the first song of the record.
Check out some footage of Depp and Adams playing "Mother" below:
Talking with the Wall Street Journal, the musician claimed that he and Depp recently had a jam with former Hüsker Dü frontman Bob Mould. "There was one night when Bob Mould was in town, and Johnny [Depp], my friend, the actor, and we jammed – we had this amazing jam that had to have lasted nine hours. We met in the afternoon and it lasted until 3 a.m. Johnny was playing bass for some of it. I played bass for some of it – we're basically Die Kreuzen right now, by way of Minneapolis, by way of Los Angeles. Total, otherworldly weird jams. Everybody that's interested in the jams are interested in the song construct. There were placeholder vocals or sometimes no vocals. There's almost no discussion. We laid down like eight songs or something. It was incredible."
This isn't the first time Depp has graced the stage alongside a musician. A once-upon-a-time-rock star-dreamer himself, Depp has performed alongside anyone from Aerosmith to Marilyn Manson.
