Legendary rocker Alice Cooper has said that he has an open offer to Johnny Depp, with regards to the actor joining his band on the road.

Depp joined Cooper onstage at London's 100 Club last year - pictured right. Cooper said: "Johnny came to Hollywood to play guitar. He didn't come as an actor at all... I always say to him, 'If you really want to go out on tour, let me know and you can come with us.' I wouldn't be surprised if he did."

Speaking to The Sun, Cooper also offered advice to up-and-coming bands, saying: "Don't get into wimp rock. Be a rock star. Listen to Iggy And The Stooges, early Who, early Rolling Stones."

He added: "Bands are so timid. Every time I see a new band I go, 'Why are you so afraid to be a rock star? Be an obnoxious rock'n' roller. Get rid of your corduroys."

Alice Cooper tours the UK this October. To check the availability of Alice Cooper tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
