Johnny Depp May Be Working With Steven Tyler

Johnny Depp and Steven Tyler are both enjoying newfound popularity thanks to Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and American Idol respectively. While Johnny Depp has been very popular for several years, these days he can’t say five words without it being spun into a story. Steven Tyler, while not holding the same clout as Depp, adds a multiplier effect to just about any story these days, so when the two finally appeared in one together… liftoff was achieved.
A little known fact about Depp is that he started his career in the music business, before his film career took off (thank you, Nightmare On Elm Street). So when he had the opportunity to hang out with Steven Tyler (presumably because he’s in Los Angeles for the Pirates premier that took place on Saturday), he jumped at it, saying, “We've been hanging out here and there. He's someone I've admired greatly for such a long time. The idea of writing songs with him is a dream come true."
Whether or not this will flow into a Depp-Tyler album is unknown, but it’s safe to say it would be a huge hit initially - even if the product sucks. Hey, just look at the second and third Pirates films.
