CURIOSITIES: Johnny Depp and the singing life.
10 years ago, after
showed his vocal ability for the fist time ever in “Sweeney Todd”, Johnny said “It was the first time I’d ever sung. I’ve never even sung in the shower – I’d be too mortified! But once I’d got over the initial fear, it was enjoyable. Would I do it again? I doubt it! Singing on set is mortifying – you feel like an idiot!”
Later, when asked about if he based his singing voice on any person in particular once he sounded a bit like David Bowie, he answered: “A couple of people have said that, which is interesting because I wouldn’t ever dream of attempting to channel David Bowie. He’s a big hero of mine. If there’s a similarity it wasn’t intentional. And it’s a nice compliment”
10 years later, on these past two nights, Johnny (who usually does the backing vocal and leaves to play his guitar) surprised us doing his A-M-A-Z-I-N-G cover from David Bowie’s song “Heroes”. We know that he will not leave the acting career for the singing life, but we REALLY needs his Bowie version, or even more tracks on the next Hollywood Vampires album. KEEP SINGING JOHNNY! We are really proud of your evolution! xo
