British guitarist Jeff Beck and US actor Johnny Depp have teamed up – the result: an album that will be released in July. Joint concerts are also planned.
British guitarist Jeff Beck (77) and US actor Johnny Depp (59, “Pirates of the Caribbean”) are releasing a joint album.
It is titled “18” and is scheduled to appear on July 15, according to a statement. Beck and Depp are also coming to Germany for two concerts: on July 6th in Offenbach and on July 13th at the Tollwood Festival in Munich.
Jeff Beck is considered one of the best guitarists in the world. He made his name with The Yardbirds in the 1960s before falling out with the band. With his first solo album “Truth” (1968) he already became a guitar legend. Later he worked in different formations – among others with Mick Jagger, Roger Waters, Brian May, Paul Rodgers and Stevie Wonder.
According to the information, Johnny Depp has been musically active since his youth and originally wanted to be a rock star. He has therefore already worked with musicians such as Paul McCartney, Slash, Alice Cooper and Joe Perry. Most recently, however, a defamation lawsuit between him and his ex-wife Amber Heard made headlines.
