The Pirates of the Caribbean star's two-song contribution wins him a job offer from the shock rocker

Not all of the known world's A-list celebrities were at Glastonbury this weekend, as 200 or so fans at the 100 Club in London discovered, when Johnny Depp joined Alice Cooper on stage to play rhythm guitar on versions of the Cooper classics I'm Eighteen and School's Out.

Twelve songs into a 75-minute set, Cooper announced the arrival of a special guest, "the bluesmaster, Mr Johnny D from Kentucky". Depp's was the fourth guitar in a lineup that already had three, so in truth he did not make a huge difference to the sound, but there were no audible disgraces in his contribution.

Before Depp left the stage, Cooper reminisced to him about meeting Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones. "He said to me: 'How long is it since you stopped drinking?' I told him 20 or 30 years. »
