“The Pirates of the Caribbean” star is coming back to life. After his defamation trial commenced with closing arguments, Johnny Depp, who is also a notable guitarist, made a surprise appearance Sunday at a Jeff Beck concert in England. Read on to learn about his most recent performance.
Depp is a Feast to Watch…
According to multiple videos that surfaced on social media, Johnny Depp joined Jeff Beck on stage performing their 2020 song collaboration “Isolation”, which is a remake of John Lennon’s 1970 hit. The pair also performed a cover of Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Goin On” and Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wing”.
The former “Yardbirds” star has further concerts at London’s Royal Albert Hall on May 30 and 31, and it’s speculated Hollywood Vampires rocker Depp could join the blues-rock guitarist at those shows. During Friday’s closing arguments, Depp has begged jurors to “give him his back.” Well, it seems like he’s starting to get back some of it.
In addition to his film career, Depp is a notable guitarist and is a member of the band Hollywood Vampires, alongside Alice Cooper and Joe Perry. Depp made this surprising appearance only two days after lawyers delivered closing arguments in his $50 million defamation case against his ex-wife Amber Heard.
The video has thrilled fans across the globe and was also uploaded on Instagram handle @jerriedepp. It was captioned, “New full-length video of god dad (@JohnnyDepp) with Uncle Jeff (@jeffbeckofficial) in Sheffield City Hall, U.K 🥳 (Song Title: This Is A Song For Ms Hedy Lamarr, Written by @JohnnyDepp) (Credits to @dorothy96m 🙏🏼).”
One fan wrote, “Makes my heart so happy to see and hear this… Sending so much love to Johnny on his New Beginnings.” Another fan wrote, “Yesssss this is what I wanted xoxoxoxo”. One, “In his pure element:….::::🙌🏻.” FYI, Depp and Beck, 77, frequently recorded together during the lockdown in the initial wave of the Covid-19 pandemic.
An Instagram user who caught a shot of the Pirates of the Caribbean star wrote: “Wasn’t expecting this… I thought he was in court but turns out he’s in Sheffield with Jeff Beck.” A source close to Depp revealed that “Mr Depp is in the United Kingdom, as he was a few weeks ago, to adhere to his previously scheduled work obligations.”
Closing Arguments at Depp’s Trial
The proceedings took place in Fairfax, Virginia and began on April 11. On Friday (27 May), closing arguments concluded in Amber Heard’s defamation trial in the case brought against her by ex-husband Johnny Depp.
The jury began deliberating on the six weeks of testimony before being sent home for the Memorial Day holiday weekend. However, jurors will resume deliberations on Tuesday (31 May).
Heard is being sued by Depp for $50m for implying he abused her in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed. Although she didn’t name him, he claims her allegations impacted his ability to work. She is pursuing a counterclaim of $100m.
In Depp’s closing argument, his lawyers asked jurors to “give him his life back” after he claims it was “ruined” by Heard’s allegations of domestic abuse. Depp’s performance has come as a real surprise to his fans. It’s good to see that the 58-year-old star is hanging in there despite these troubled times. What do you think?
