Depp Reunites With Rock Band
Johnny Depp returned to his musical roots after reuniting with his rock band THE KIDS for a fundraiser at the weekend (beg29Aug08).
Depp took the stage strumming his guitar and singing backup vocals for the band during the 90-minute fundraising shows in Florida on Friday (29Aug08) and Saturday (30Aug08).
And the actor's longtime girlfriend, Vanessa Paradis took their 9-year-old daughter Lily-Rose to the show, as the pair screamed in support of Depp from the 2,500-strong crowd.
Depp's set supported the second annual Sheila Witkin Memorial Reunion Concert, honouring The Kids' late manager, who was well known in South Florida's music scene. All proceeds from the benefit go to the Dan Marino Foundation, which funds programs for children with special needs.
The 45-year-old actor joined The Kids when he was a high school student in Miramar, Florida moving to Los Angeles with them in search of a record deal.
Depp decided to pursue his acting career following their subsequent break-up, before the group reunited in 2007 for the cause.
