Johnny Depp took the stage alongside Marilyn Manson for a performance at Revolver magazine's Golden Gods Awards concert at Club Nokia in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
Depp, 48, clad in an all-black ensemble - button down shirt, boots, jeans, and a cowboy hat with feathers -- looked every part like a rock god. He topped off the outfit with an ivory guitar slung low against his thigh.
Audience members first didn't recognize that the actor had taken the stage because the cowboy hat obscured most of his face.
After a rendition of Eurythmics' 'Sweet Dreams' Manson confirmed the identity of the mystery guitarist.
If you don't recognize my personal friend ... my personal savior, my personal guitar hero ... Johnny Depp! he said according to People magazine. The crowd went ballistic.
The duo also performed Manson's 'The Beautiful People.' Depp looked like he was having fun onstage.
Manson closed the show; he performed with Pretty Reckless singer and 'Gossip Girl' alum Taylor Momsen before bringing Depp onstage.
Depp began his career as a rock musician. He dropped out of school at age 15 to concentrate on his music career. A teenage Depp fronted a myriad of garage bands including 'The Kids' who once opened for Iggy Pop. It was only after a visit to LA and an introduction to Nicolas Cage that he got into the acting business.
Depp will next be seen in Tim Burton's movie take on the Gothic soap opera 'Dark Shadows.' He plays Barnabas Collins an imprisoned vampire that, when set free, returns home to protect his now ghostly family. The film will be released May 11.
