Johnny Depp to Play With Alice Cooper; Here's His Five Coolest Rock Moments
This really happened.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas--even though Halloween is still just around the corner. As grocery stores begin to stock their Christmas
crap decorations, the last show announcements of the year trickle in. Historically, the line up for Alice Cooper's Christmas Pudding gets announced every October, and while we don't have the full line up just yet, we do have a very big announcement--Johnny Depp. No, the actor won't be making a brief appearance with Alice -- he's actually performing.
"Johnny will join Alice and his band featuring Orianthi, Don Felder, L.A. Guns, and special guest host John O'Hurley for a night of music, dance, and mayhem!" says a post on Alice Cooper's Solid Rock Facebook page.
Johnny Depp is a talented actor, a lothario, and an all around badass, but I don't need to state the obvious. The same man who played Captain Jack Sparrow, Edward Scissorhands, and Raoul Duke has history as a singer and guitarist, so here's a look at Johnny Depp's five coolest most rock 'n roll moments.

Johnny Depp has performed with Alice Cooper before. This video starts off with Alice explaining that he met "Mr. Jack Sparrow" after he opened for The Rolling Stones. Depp joins Cooper's band for two songs- "Eighteen" and "School's Out."
Jamming with Keith Richards. Speaking of The Rolling Stones, it was pretty cool to see Richards play Captain Jack Sparrow's father in Pirates of the Caribbean, but the duo's friendship didn't end there. Depp joined Richards for a blues jam at the Rum Diary after party.
