As the jury ponders everything said in Johnny Depp’s trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard, and is expected to come to a decision this week, Depp traveled to England for an impromptu guitar gig.
Imagine you go to a concert by the great guitarist Jeff Beck in the English city of Sheffield on Sunday evening and next to him is the man who is currently occupying many media outlets around the world: Johnny Depp.
That’s what happened to some people in England last night. While Depp has been waiting for a verdict on his lawsuit since the closing arguments on Friday, he fled America across the pond and made an impromptu musical appearance. Hobby musician Depp had already created a remake of the John Lennon song “Isolation” with Beck in 2020, which was also played on stage yesterday in a more private atmosphere:
Jeff Beck and Johnny Depp perform “Isolation”:
The two stars also performed covers of Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” and Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wing” last night. There is speculation that Depp could join Beck for his next tour stop today at London’s Royal Albert Hall. In the USA today is a public holiday anyway, Memorial Day. The verdict of the jury in the trial that Johnny Depp has been conducting for seven weeks against his ex-wife Amber Heard for defamation is therefore not expected until Tuesday at the earliest. Assuming the jury quickly agrees.
Johnny Depp’s fans quickly shared their idol’s musical performance on social media. There has also been speculation that Johnny Depp has had his hair dyed. The actor’s mane suddenly seemed lighter to the fans than it did on Friday in court.
Johnny Depp’s passion for music began long before his acting career—and he’s never lost it. In 2015 he even founded the band “Hollywood Vampires” with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry.
