Apart from being an extraordinary actor, Johnny Depp is occasionally a guitar player. Many of his friends are rock stars and at times, he has even performed with them. Yet, he finds the idea of being an actor and a musician “a sickening thing, it’s always just made me sick”. Johnny Depp, who is currently promoting his new comedy drama Mortdecai, told reporters; “You won’t be hearing the Johnny Depp Band. That won’t ever exist”.
He then went on to explain; “The kind of luxury now is, anybody with a certain amount of success, if you have a kind of musical being, you can go out and start a band and capitalize on your work in other areas. But I hate the idea, ‘Come see me play the guitar because you’ve seen me in 12 movies’. It shouldn’t be [that way]. You want the people who are listening to the music to only be interested in the music”.
