Johnny Depp continued his run of notable gig appearances by performing alongside Marilyn Manson in Brisbane on Friday night (February 27).
As reported by Noise 11, the actor played guitar on a rendition of Manson’s 1996 single ‘The Beautiful People’.
The pair are long-time friends and Depp has performed with Manson and his band numerous times in the past. They also worked together in 2012 on a cover Carly Simon’s 1972 hit ‘You’re So Vain’, with the Rum Diary star playing drums and lead guitar and Manson providing the vocals.
Depp is currently in Australia to film the latest Pirates Of The Caribbean movie and was spotted early this week at a Foo Fighters gig, also in Brisbane. He is due to perform at this September’s Rock In Rio festival in Rio De Janeiro alongside Alice Cooper and Aerosmith’s Joe Perry as The Hollywood Vampires. But despite moonlighting as a musician, the 51-year-old has insisted he has no intention of ever making music into a second career.
“That whole idea for me is a sickening thing, it’s always just made me sick,” he told reporters at the Berlin premiere of his latest film Mortdecai in January. “I’ve been very lucky to play on friends’ records and it’s still going. Music is still part of my life. But you won’t be hearing The Johnny Depp Band. That won’t ever exist.”
