Alice Cooper Offers Johnny Depp A Place On His Tour After London Appearance

 

16 October 2011

Actor Johnny Depp has been offered an open invitation by shock rocker Alice Cooper to join his band on tour after surprising fans by making an onstage appearance at Cooper's gig at London's 100 Club.

Depp joined Cooper onstage to play hits 'Eighteen' and 'School's Out' in June this year (11), and Cooper was so impressed by the actor's musical prowess that he offered Depp a place on the tour then and there.

Cooper told Revolver magazine, "We called him Johnny D from Kentucky. It was great, he has his own guitar tech (technician) and his own $10,000 custom rig."

He went on to add, "We kept it (his appearance) a good secret... People thought it was going to be Slash or (Jon) Bon Jovi, because they were both in town. Slowly but surely as we played, the girls in the front row started recognising who he was and freaking out."

Cooper then told the magazine that if Depp wanted to join the tour he would be more than happy to have him, saying, "He's a serious guitar player. He even keeps his guitar tech on the set of his movies, and I'm sure, if he had eight weeks to spare, I think he would gladly tour with us... He was that good."

Can't wait to see if anything comes of this!
