Depp and Manson. (Paul Archuleta/FilmMagic)
This wasn't the first time the two have worked together. In fact, they go way back. Depp and Manson first collaborated on "The Nobodies," which appeared on the soundtrack to the actor's 2001 film, "From Hell." And recently, Depp recorded drums and guitar for Manson's cover of Carly Simon's 1972 hit "You're So Vain," which will appear on his upcoming album, Born Villain.
Before he made it big as an actor, Depp was a member of Rock City Angels in the '80s. And although he's gone on to become one of the most popular stars in the world — and not to mention People's "Sexiest Man Alive" — the "Rango" actor has stuck by his rock roots. Last June, he played guitar alongside Alice Cooper in London on the '70s metal singer's classics "18" and "School's Out." In 1997, he recorded guitar on the Oasis songs, "Fade In-Out" and "Fade Away," and around the same time he was also part of the band P, which featured members of Butthole Surfers, Ween, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, and the Sex Pistols.
