Johnny Depp Plays Guitar Solo on the New Butch Walker Album...


A behind-the-scenes video has been released on the making of Butch Walker's recently-released album Afraid of Ghosts. In the video, we find out that actor Johnny Depp was part of a small group of studio musicians that played on the album.

And, that Depp had actually been specifically brought in to perform a guitar solo on the album.

Country musician Ryan Adams served as producer on the LP and invited Depp to the sessions, only telling Walker that his buddy "J Dizzle" would be coming by the studio.


Much to Walker's surprise, the J Dizzle in question was the Hollywood A-list actor, and the video captures Depp playing a guitar solo on the track; '21+'.

What do you think of Depp's guitar playing? Can he shred with the best, or is he just another Hollywood A-list star who easily uses his fame and fortune to "play" musician in between major Hollywood film roles?

Skip to [04:22] to hear Depp's solo.

  1. Well, to me he didn't really play ANY-THING. It was so heavily effected and just was all bending, (and kind of off key at that). I saw him play that song with Aerosmith and he basically just stood there jackin' on the whammy-bar. I don't know what to make of this. I'd like to see him actually play something, with minimal effects. then I could make a better judgement call. Otherwise, Meh.

  2. I'd say he's only slightly better than Steven Seagal. https://youtu.be/SqUDgQy2i3E

    1. No way, actually I HAVE TO go on side with Steven Seagal. His lead is waay better that Depp's lead. Look at Depp in that Aerosmith video, his playing is awful. There's zero tone and he just whammy bars the whole time. Nope Seagal wins hands down between the two.

  3. I'm also going with Steven Seagal. Seagal plays with more feel and has some fast licks and Seagal anit got no effects. Depp has waaaaaay too much effects. And, Depp is just bending. Seagal actually knows licks.

  4. Seagal is way more serious about music than Depp. You got to hear Seagals song "My God" It is AWESOME! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6ZdUZFy2BI

  5. I know it isnt guitar but check out "Devil Woman" - by Bruce Willis. He is a great blues /rock harmonica player. Not at all a big fan of his singing, but great harmonica playing.

  6. There's Kevin Costner too. His singing is so WEAK. Why do all of these actors want to be musicians so bloody bad. https://youtu.be/m94fN28eNFk

    1. Arrrrrgghhh... Just watched the Molly Ringworm video and she's AWFUL. Some of these stars have their heads so far up their asses they can't even see the crap they produce. They've got everyone around them saying, "You're so great - You're so awesome," and then they just start to believe it. Plus, they have so much money that they can hire the best musicians and studio producers, so they just fall deeper into their own delusions. It's actually quite pathetic.
