Yup, you read that headline right: on Thursday night in London, Ryan Adams and Johnny Depp sang a song together on stage. That’s right, the Rick Moranis of our musically obsessed hearts and Tim Burton’s vagabond-y rock sea captain got together and decided that the Danzig tune, “Mother” was a compulsory performance the duo must unleash unto the world. All we have to say is: thank goodness for awesome celebrity friendships.
Given Depp’s rock star proclivities—to say nothing of his own prowess as a guitarist—in addition to Adams’ obsession with heavy metal, it’s not a complete surprise this was their song of choice. Besides, what other tune would have given Depp such an opportunity to shred on the guitar, eh?
