Johnny Depp takes center stage to sing with Jeff Beck as jury decides verdict in Amber Heard’s trial

For nearly two months, headlines were written and thousands of words were spent filling columns relating to the multi-million dollar libel lawsuit in Virginia. Hollywood actors and former husband and wife Johnny Depp and Amber Heard not only had their intimate, and often very ugly, relationship opened up for public consumption via reporters’ analysis, but they also had a live camera focused on them throughout the courtroom. procedure.

On Friday, May 27, the two groups of lawyers presented their closing arguments, after which the jury was sent back by the judge to consider the evidence presented to them, reminding them to focus only on that and not on any preconceptions they may have had about the celebrities in question. Undoubtedly, we expected Depp and Heard to also retreat to peaceful surroundings to recover from what must have been a rather grueling ordeal. It seems not, at least in Depp’s case.

Although Depp is best known for his acting, having starred in films such as The Rum Diary, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Tourist, as well as the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, he is also very good on the guitar, playing for the group Hollywood Vampires, which he created in 2012 with Alice Cooper (the band’s name comes from his 1970s drinking club) and Joe Perry.

And over the weekend, as the jury deliberated, the man who made Jack Sparrow a household name was on stage as a surprise guest at City Hall in Sheffield, England. He was part of Jeff Beck’s European tour and the crowd was amazed to see Depp sing his cover of John Lennon’s song, Isolation. As you can see below, there was a lot of love for the man on trial…
