Johnny Depp Compares Performing In Band To Acting

Hollywood Vampires

(Classic Rock) Johnny Depp has compared performing in a band to improvising a scene as an actor. The Hollywood Vampires guitarist and movie icon believes it's equally as important for an actor to take risks as it is for a musician to push themselves for the sake of a performance.

Depp was a special guest at the Classic Rock Roll Of Honour in Tokyo and he gave a frank, in-depth interview to Classic Rock. It features in the current issue of Classic Rock magazine, which is available now in print and via TeamRock+.

Depp says: "When you're playing though it's not remembering lines or serving the scene, or serving the script or whatever, the vision. On stage, it's the same sort of thing, you're still serving - you're serving the song but more you're serving the moment.

"I think every actor should walk into a scene with the idea that this could f***ing fail miserably. I think it's important to take those risks. It should be scary. You've got a f***ing character that you've come up with and you believe in, and you feel a very strong foundation of this character beneath you.

"It's the same approach really you know, just go and improvisation as always, the best thing because, I think some of the best performances of any recording artist, especially the early recordings, it's f***ing chance." Read more here.
