Cooper, who performs with Perry and Depp in the group Hollywood Vampires, tells EonMusic that Depp’s guitar knowledge is deep.
“Johnny is one of these guys that just loves that era, and he’s a killer guitar player,” Cooper says.
“Joe Perry heard that, and he called up and said, ‘Can I get guitar lessons from you?’ So that’s how good Johnny is.”
