Johnny Depp began playing guitar when he was age 12, and almost immediately started playing in various garage bands according to “Inside the Actors Studio. After enjoying modest success, Depp got together a few of his friends and set out from his home town of Owensboro, Kentucky, to Los Angeles in pursuit of a record deal. As history has it, Depp never made it famous as a musician but his love for music was ever present last night when he made a cameo appearance on stage with Aerosmith and attended their after party at Pink Taco in Los Angeles. Depp was there socializing with friend Steven. Over the years the two have occasionally jammed together. But is wasn’t just Aerosmith nor Tyler that allowed Depp to be out on this occasion; reports suggest that he is back on the dating market after his recent split with Vanessa Paradis.
Of course the news has caused ripples of excitement amongst his legion of female fans as girls were throwing themselves at the heartthrob last night, eager to become his newest treat.
The 49-year-old actor wore his trademark fedora hat and quirky style of waistcoat, shirt and trousers with plenty of beads around his neck. Depp grinned as he showed up to the Pink Taco venue on Sunset Boulevard to watch the concert unfold.
Depp and Vanessa got together in 1998 when they met in the Costes Hotel in Paris while he was filming the Roman Polanski film The Ninth Gate. He previously had a high-profile engagement to Winona Ryder and a long-term relationship with Kate Moss and she had just come out of a relationship with French-Slovenian actor Stanislas Merhar, having been reportedly engaged to singer Lenny Kravitz before that.
A year after they got together, Depp and Paradis’ first child, daughter Lily-Rose, was born, followed by their son Jack in 2002.
Depp and Vanessa never married but he has stated that having children cemented roots for him and added that they gave him “real foundation, a real strong place to stand in life, in work, in everything.” He added: “You can’t plan the kind of deep love that results in children. Fatherhood was not a conscious decision. It was part of the wonderful ride I was on. It was destiny; kismet. All the math finally worked.”
Since the recent breakup, Depp has been linked to his “The Rum Diary” co-star Amber Heard.
Weather it is true or not, the “Pirates of the Caribbean star won’t remain single for long. There are plenty of women that would give their right arm for a minute of his time.
Until some charming beauty comes along and sweeps him off his feet, we can expect Depp to be seen frequenting parties all over his one-time stomping grounds and perhaps as rumor has it, on stage with Steven Tyler and Aerosmith.
