Is Johnny Depp about to become Marilyn Manson’s new guitarist?

Here's Johnny....

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

The shock-rock icon is known for his close friendship with the acting icon, and last year enlisted him to star in the dark and twisted video for album track ‘KILL4ME’.

In the clip, which was released last November, Depp is seen brooding in a mansion before engaging in a threesome with two women.


Now, Manson has hinted that Depp could become a full time member of his band, after claiming that he is “considering” a role as guitarist.

“Johnny Depp is considering a position on guitar. Sound great?”, Manson wrote on Twitter.

Responding to the suggestion, one fan wrote: “This should’ve happened already!! Please make this happen.”

Last year, Manson opened up on his friendship with Depp in an exclusive interview with NME that saw him revealing what would happen if the pair ever ended up running America together.

“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”, he said.


Manson also recently opened up on his relationship with former bassist Twiggy Ramirez, who left his band last year after facing accusations of rape and sexual assault.

“I did not divorce Twiggy as a friend or brother, because I still care about him greatly,” Manson told Kerrang.

“But I can’t say that my musical relationship with Twiggy has been good for several years. My relationship with Tyler Bates on [2015’s] ‘The Pale Emperor’ made something open up in me and I didn’t want to let negative energy back in my life.”
