THE GUITAR SOCIETY-29th June 2011
|Alice Cooper was more than a little impressed by his special guest guitarist at London’s 100 Club on Sunday night. Cooper introduced Johnny Depp as a blues player from Kentucky. According to Music-news.com, he said:
“So when I introduced ‘Johnny D from Kentucky, a famous blues player’ and he comes up, he had his head down and everyone was like, ‘who’s that guy?’ Then you could see the little light bulbs going on in their heads one by one and the girls at the front were going ‘That’s Johnny Depp!’“
Cooper called the Hollywood actor a great guitarist, saying: “I’d work with him again, I mean, the guy is a valid guitar player. We told him anytime he wants to come up and play, feel free.
“We’ve always given that kind of privilege to any great guitar player, like Brian May. He’s in the same place as Brian May or Slash. He’s a great guitarist.”
Judge for yourselves.
