Johnny Depp has been in the studio with Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler collaborating on new music with the American Idol judge. Depp has fiddled around in music throughout the course of his acting career, playing slide guitar with Oasis, forming a band with Gibby Haynes called P, and performing with countless legends such as Eddie Vedder and Iggy Pop.
“We’ve been hanging out here and there,” Depp explains. ”He’s someone I’ve admired greatly for such a long time. The idea of writing songs with him is a dream come true.” Could the music from their songwriting collaboration end up on Steven Tyler’s forthcoming solo album? Tyler released the first single off the record “It Feels So Good.”
