Just two days after the pleadings: Johnny Depp climbed onto the stage for three songs at a Jeff Beck concert in England.

Just two days after the pleadings in his court case against Amber Heard (36), Johnny Depp (58) surprises with a guest appearance in England. At a concert by Jeff Beck (77) on Sunday, the actor and hobby guitarist came on stage for a few songs. A number of concertgoers recorded the performance in Sheffield in videos and social media posts, as reported by the “Hollywood Reporter”.

Johnny Depp supported British rock legend Jeff Beck (The Yardbirds) on three songs. Together they sang and performed their version of John Lennon’s “Isolation”. Beck and Depp released the song as a single in 2020. The pair also dabbled in Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wing” and Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On.”

Johnny Depp as a rock star

Johnny Depp has been an avid musician for years. Before his acting career, he aspired to be a rock star. He also stated this in the trial against ex-wife Amber Heard. Only when it didn’t work out as a musician did he accidentally slip into the film business.

Parallel to his cinema career, Depp played as a guest musician for various artists. In 2015 he founded the band Hollywood Vampires with Alice Cooper (74) and Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry (71).

On Friday, the hearing of evidence in the Depp vs. Heard case ended with the lawyers’ pleadings. Both accuse each other of defamation. It is not yet clear when the jury will present their verdict.
