Jeff Beck – A Trusted Friend of Johnny Depp

The entire world was shocked by the revelations made during Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial. The initial accusations against Johnny Depp made people near him reconsider their stand beside him. Depp was cornered by the industry, which made him lose his role in major projects such as Pirates of the Caribbean 6 and Fantastic Beast 3. Amid all this chaos in Depp’s both personal and professional life, Beck collaborated with Depp for his album ‘18’. 

It is the true friendship of the eight times Grammy winner to aid his three-time Academy Award nominee friend in his difficult times. The two toured together to promote their new album comprising a music video titled This Is a Song for Miss Hedy Lamarr, off the album. The recent tour made their years of friendship even stronger. Beck shared his feeling about working with Depp and claimed that Depp is a true rockstar.

“I haven’t had another creative partner like him for ages. He was a major force on this record. I just hope people will take him seriously as a musician because it’s a hard thing for some people to accept that Johnny Depp can sing rock and roll.”
