According to the Hollywood Reporter, Depp and Beck also played a cover of “What’s Going On” by Marvin Gaye and “Little Wing” by Jimi Hendrix.

Depp’s impromptu appearance brought him back to his roots, because before starting his career as an actor, he aspired to become a musician. His musical career was short-lived but, as he testified at his defamation trial, he found more success in acting.

Depp is also a member of the hard rock supergroup Hollywood Vampires, alongside Alice Cooper and Joe Perry.

The band performed at the Rock in Rio music festival in Lisbon, Portugal, in 2016, when Depp was initially confronted with Heard’s allegations of domestic violence.

The two high-profile actors completed the defamation case Friday, after days of hearings that included testimony from Depp’s ex-girlfriend Kate Moss and ex-girlfriend Ellen Barkin. It also featured notable names of stars such as Elon Musk, Paul Bettany, Marilyn Manson, and James Franco.

Disney executives were also repeatedly dragged into the discussions, as both Depp and Heard claimed to have lost on movie spots, in ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ and ‘Aquaman 2’ due to the controversy of the case and the allegations of abuse respectively.
