LONDON, UK. (THECOUNT) — Johnny Depp took the stage with guitarist Jeff Beck in England over the Memorial Day holiday.
Depp, who matched only The Beatles to play the famed Royal Albert Hall venue, played two nights in a row with the legendary guitarist Sunday and Monday. The concerts came as Depp awaits the verdict in his defamation trial involving his ex-wife Amber Heard.
According to TMZ, Beck and Johnny have a years-long connection. In introducing his bud, Beck said, “He came knocking on my dressing room door about five years ago and we haven’t stopped laughing since.”
They repeated the songs they sang together the night before in Sheffield … John Lennon’s “Isolation,” Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wing,” Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On,” and The Beatles’ “A Day In The Life.”
The dynamic duo received several standing ovations.
It’s not clear yet, but it’s almost certain Johnny winged his way back to the U.S., where he can be near as a jury in Virginia decides who wins and who loses. The implications are huge and could determine if Heard will have a career in the aftermath.
