Johnny Depp plays music, sure, but he has no plans to be a famous musician. The idea of actors cashing in on their screen success to launch a music career "is a sickening thing, it's always just made me sick," Depp told reporters in Berlin this weekend ahead of the Mortdecai premiere. "I've been very lucky to play on friends' records and it's still going. Music is still part of my life. But you won't be hearing The Johnny Depp Band. That won't ever exist."
As the Sydney Morning Herald reports, Depp, a guitar player, has recorded with Oasis and Marilyn Manson and has performed with Manson, among others. (See our gallery for evidence.) "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," Depp continued. "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." (Depp drama: He's apparently having drinking problems.)
