Marilyn Manson hints Johnny Depp could be his full time guitarist

Marilyn Manson hinted that Johnny Depp could join his band as a full-time guitarist.

The Goth singer tweeted “Johnny Depp is considering a position on guitar. Sound great?”



It seemed like he was asking fans what they thought of this possible collaboration.

Fans replied in different ways: some were either enthusiastic about the collaboration or accused the actor of domestic abuse.

A fan tweeted “people did NOT forget about amber heard please don’t do this to the band just don’t” while another fan wrote “definitely the hottest bachelor duo around” and again “This should’ve happened already!! Please make this happen.”



Manson and Depp are best friends and last year Depp even starred for the rocker’s dark video of the track ‘KILL4ME’. The clip was released last November and shows Depp engaging in a threesome with two women.

The two friends also share the same back tattoos of Charles Baudelaire’s poetry anthology cover and they often spend time watching movies and making music videos together at Manson’s record Heaven Upside Down.

They have been playing together for years; Johnny Depp initially came to Hollywood to become a rock star, but ended up acting instead. Although working in the movie industry, Depp has never given up taking part in music projects and performed and toured with the Hollywood Vampires, alongside Alice Cooper, Aerosmith’s Joe Perry and ex-Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum.



Manson’s band line up changed in late 2017, when the rocker fired his bassist, Jeordie White (a.k.a. Twiggy Ramirez) who was accused of sexual assault.

The other members of his band include guitarist Tyler Bates, touring bassist Juan Alderete, drummer Gil Sharone and rhythm guitarist Paul Wiley.



With regard to their bond, last year Manson revealed in an interview what would happen if the pair ever ended up running America together.

He stated: “Well, we’d set new holidays for sure. Johnny Depp Day, Marilyn Manson Day. I wouldn’t live in the White House… It’s too white and too stupid-looking”.
