Johnny Depp is planning to reunite with his old band.

The 50-year-old star is reportedly planning on putting his acting career on hold so that he can get back together with his former band The Kids, who he split from 30 years ago.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''It's something he's wanted to do for a while.

''He's a frustrated rocker and for all the success he's had as an actor, he still wishes he could make it in the music world.''

The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor is said to have been encouraged by his new fiancée Amber Heard, who he met on the set of 2011 film 'The Rum Diary', to reclaim his position as lead guitarist in the rock band.

The source said: ''This will be his chance to live out his fantasies and see what might have been. But he's nervous the music critics might give him a hard time.

The Kids decided to part ways in 1984 after moving from Florida to Los Angeles when Johnny landed a role in 'A Nightmare On Elm Street'.

The source added: ''They've played the odd gig since but it's 30 years since they officially called it a day.

''Johnny thinks it's the perfect opportunity for them to go on tour and maybe even record an album. The band changed their name to Six Gun Method before they split so it will probably be under that name.''

The 'Lone Ranger' star has previously shared his musical talents with other artists, teaming up with Marilyn Manson in 2012 for a cover of Carly Simon's 'Your So Vain'.

He also worked with Babybird and played guitar on Fade In-Out' from Oasis' 1997 album 'Be Here Now'.

In 2011, the actor joined Alice Cooper on stage at London's 100 club.
