Johnny Depp claims music is a 'lifesaver'

Apr 1 2014, 5:24am CDT | by

<p>Johnny Depp says making music is a "lifesaver".

The Hollywood star's "first love" was rock 'n' roll after getting a guitar aged just 12 and after years devoted to his film career, the 'Rum Diary' actor claims he's never felt better now he's back in the studio making music with the likes of Ryan Adams and Marcus Mumford.

In a special chat for Interview magazine conducted by Iggy Pop, Johnny - who opened for the godfather of Punk with his old band the Kids as a teenager - revealed how music has changed his life.

He explained: "I've been playing a lot of music lately. It's a real lifesaver, being able to focus on my first love. It's freedom. And immediate - yeah, f**k, we captured it. I suppose that's it, capturing something.

"I've been writing and recording with Ryan Adams a lot lately. Ryan is incredibly prolific and he's just a pure soul, he's just this being. He's got a great handle on it. And is taking good care of himself. But what a talent, man. I'm amazed by the f**ker.

"And then, here and there I'm doing some stuff with Alice [Cooper], which is really fun. Also with Marcus Mumford, who's amazing."

The 50-year-old actor - who is engaged to actress Amber Heard - and Iggy next met on the set of 'Cry-Baby' in 1990 and have been firm friends and collaborators ever since, but the 'Edward Scissorhands' star reminded him that their first meeting didn't go quite so well.

He told his musical idol: "After the gig you were walking around the club, and I was standing at the bar, all of 17 years old, guzzling as much spirits as I could to get up the nerve to talk to you. And I remember making the horrific decision in my teenage drunken state to go, 'Well, I'll just get his attention.'

"I started going, 'I-I-Iggy Pop, Piggy Slop', you know? You walked towards me and put your face about a quarter of an inch from mine and just went, 'You little turd.' And not only was it exactly the reaction that I deserved, but it was the one I wanted. I had a moment with you."

Here are some photos of Dakota Johnson in London over the weekend.

#455015958 / gettyimages.com These are photos from the NYFW launch of Calvin Klein’s latest fragrance, REVEAL, in NYC. I enjoy CK fragrances. They’re not overpowering like a lot of perfumes. This party wasn’t a huge event, but I felt like checking in with Amber Heard. She looks lovely but “over it” in this little black sleeveless dress. Amber’s been quiet and lowkey lately, spending her off-work time vintage shopping in NYC. There are the usual preg ...
