Introducing; blues guitar player Johnny Depp

Of course you've heard Johnny loves playing his guitar, and is really good at it, but did you know Mr. Depp loves playing the blues, too? He's made a cameo in so many spots, it would be hard to list them all, but the latest gig added in his repertoire is pure blues played with the legendary Sir Paul McCartney.

Johnny played so well in Chocolat that I couldn’t imagine the movie without his amazing guitar skills. Listen here.

It's well known that Johnny jams with many of his peeps. Even Alice Cooper (whom he's jammed with many times) says Johnny plays guitar like Slash.

And not long ago, Aerosmith recorded a new album Music From Another Dimention (their first in 11 years with all new material) in which Johnny put his mark on the song "Freedom Fighter" doing backup vocals. NY Post reported how that collaboration took place. See article/video here.

Johnny's helped out Sir Paul before, in his "Queenie Eye" video.

When Johnny went to L.A. to film the jam session with McCartney and other blues greats here's what Sir Paul said about it,

"I happened to ring Johnny Depp," McCartney says. "I said, 'Come along and we'll sit around and jam with these blues guys.' He said, 'Yeah, OK, count me in, man.' I knew it was an offer he couldn't refuse." (Other musicians at the session included Roy Gaines, Al Williams, Dale Atkins, Henree Harris, Motown Maurice, Lil Poochie and Misha Lindes; see an exclusive photo from the video shoot at Rolling Stone).

Another blues session Johnny sat in on was for the song "The Brooklyn Shuffle" on Steve Hunter's Manhattan Blue's Project playing along with other greats like: Joe "Aerosmith" Perry, Joe Satriani, and Tommy Henriksen. You’ve got to hear this one, it’s fab!

In the past, Johnny also jammed with The Black Keys at the MTV Movie Awards, where Aerosmith presented him with the Generation Award.

He even did a duet with his old pal Marilyn Manson on his new album.
