Richards Feared Depp Was Star-struck Pal Of Son

Subscribe to Rolling Stones alerts

Rolling Stones star Keith Richards had a less-than-favourable response when he first met Johnny Depp - he expected the actor to be another of his son's fawning friends. Richards and Depp have been firm pals for years and recently starred together in Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World's End. But Brown Sugar guitarist Richards was initially not looking forward to making Depp's acquaintance, because of his past experiences meeting his son Marlon's friends. He says, "At first it was like, 'Not another one of my f**king son's friends.' Johnny started kind of like that and then he worked his way up with me." And Depp was also nervous about meeting The Rolling Stones idol. Depp adds, "I was afraid to meet him for a long time. Because there is always a fear that your heroes are going to be s**theads."
