Johnny Depp isn’t just an incredibly talented actor — he also has film producer and musician on his resume. Depp’s been a guitar player since childhood and has performed with several notable musicians, but playing lead guitar for Willie Nelson may be the coolest.
South by Southwest has just kicked off in Austin, Texas and a lot of big stars are slated to appear and perform during the 10-day music and film extravaganza. Rodeo Austin — which is running concurrently — is a small portion of what the city has to offer during these early March weeks, but it becomes quite a special part when you combine Nelson and Depp onstage together.
KVUE, an ABC news affiliate in Austin, posted the news when they saw the two perform together during the family affair. Apparently, there was another member or the Nelson family on stage, too!
“Lukas Nelson was there, as was Johnny Depp,” web producer Jordan wrote on Facebook. “Johnny was incognito and introduced as ‘John.’ They were all great!”
Incognito ‘John’ joined Nelson on stage in his signature fedora, a button-down and a vest. Depp tapped his toes along while he played lead on Nelson’s ‘On the Road Again,’ one of the legend’s most famous and recognized songs. The actor appeared comfortable onstage alongside the country icon, who sported his signature braids.

Johnny Depp will show his villainous side in his next film project.
The movie star has signed on to play James ‘Whitey’ Bulger in the biopic “Black Mass,” according to Deadline. The movie will tell the true story of Bulger, an infamous Boston kingpin who worked as an FBI informant. When the partnership soured, Bulger became one of the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted fugitives, and was arrested in 2011 after 16 years on the run.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Depp dropped out of “Black Mass” last spring because the film’s producers were only able to pay him his standard $20 million fee. Depp has now officially signed on to the project, and Tom Hardy is said to be in talks to play John Connolly, an FBI agent and childhood friend of Bulger’s who ended up in prison for alerting Bulger that he was about to be indicted.
Depp has previous experience playing real-life criminals evading the law: He played John Dillinger in the 2009 film “Public Enemies.”
