Paul McCartney pays tribute to Johnny Depp at a recent concert
During a recent show on his Got Back Tour, acclaimed singer-songwriter Paul McCartney surprised his audience with a John Lennon video. The two sang a duet together on the song “I’ve Got A Feeling”. It was a lovely moment on the heels of the 2021 Beatle documentary series, The Beatles: Come Back.
Well, McCartney followed that visual stunner with another when he showed a video of actor Johnny Depp playing guitar while McCartney played piano in another duet of the song, “My Valentine,” while he was on stage in Seattle, Washington.
Depp, of course, is embroiled in a very public defamation case with his ex-wife Amber Heard.
McCartney has not commented on the highly publicized and ongoing court case. But the choice of the musician to show the video implies that he vouches for the Pirates of the Caribbean actor.
Philanthropist and former model Jill Vedder, who is married to Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder, uploaded the footage to her Instagram account, saying she was aware the video was likely to be controversial, but thought she should do it anyway.
Wrote Vedder on the Instagram video, which you can see below, “It might be controversial posting this video with JD Don’t care. Only know him for being a gentleman…And while I support women and the ME TOO movement I also know women who have destroyed the lives of innocent, good men… @johnnydepp … ps verbal abuse isn’t cool either.. watch your tongue.
Depp remains embroiled in legal proceedings, with Heard recently speaking out. He is suing her for defamation, claiming that her false accusations cost him millions of dollars.
McCartney is currently still on tour and who he might duet with, no one knows at this time.
