Hollywood actor Ryan Adams was joined by friend and keen guitarist Johnny Depp on-stage in London on Thursday night (September 18, 2014). The Hollywood actor joined the singer-songwriter for an encore at Shepherd's Bush Empire, playing a cover of Danzig's 'Mother' and Adams' new track, 'Kim'.
The pair are known to be fairly close and Depp appears on the B-side for Ryan's new single 'Gimmie Something Good', playing guitar and soloing on 'Aching For More'.
"There was one night when Bob Mould was in town, and Johnny [Depp], my friend, the actor, and we jammed - we had this amazing jam that had to have lasted nine hours. We met in the afternoon and it lasted until 3 am," Adams told the Wall Street Journal, "Johnny was playing bass for some of it, I played the bass for some of it - we're basically Die Kreuzen right now, by way of Minneapolis, by way of Los Angeles. Total, otherwordly weird jams."
The set - as part of a short UK tour in support of Adams' new self-titled album - was heavy on the country-tinged Cardinals tracks, though featured plenty of the new songs, as well as tracks from this year's surprise punk release 1984.
Ryan Adams played Manchester's Albert Hall on September 24 and Glasgow's Royal Concert Hall on September 25.
