On Friday night, Stone Temple Pilots kicked off their new tour showcasing the talents of their newly recruited singer, Jeff Gutt. However they just so happened to have a special guest join them on stage – none other than Hollywood actor Johnny Depp.
As Rolling Stone reports, Stone Temple Pilots were performing at The Canyon, in Santa Clarita, California before being joined by Johnny Depp, and proto-punk veteran, Wayne Kramer of MC5, for a couple of tunes to close out the evening.
Performing a cover of MC5’s ‘Kick Out The Jams’, Depp and Kramer stuck around to lend their talents to the Stone Temple Pilots classic ‘Sex Type Thing’.

Of course, this sin’t the first time that Johnny Depp has joined musicians onstage. In addition to having a bit of a storied musical career himself, Depp’s good mate Marilyn Manson recently toyed with the idea of letting the Academy Award-nominated actor join his live band.
Having recently taken to the live scene again following the recruitment of new vocalist Jeff Gutt, Stone Temple Pilots are currently set to release their new self-titled album on March 16th. It will be the group’s first album since their 2010 self-titled record, which featured late vocalist Scott Weiland, and their first recorded material since their 2013 High Rise EP, which featured deceased Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington on lead vocals.
