Irish musician, Sharon Corr, who recently accompanied Hollywood star Johnny Depp on his “West of Memphis” tour, has commended the actor for being “so down to earth.”
Corr, who is renowned as a member of the band The Corrs, provided support on the tour as a violinist and backing vocalist alongside Depp.
In an interview with a music magazine, Corr expressed her admiration for Depp and described him as a “great guy.”
“Johnny was really lovely to work with,” she said. “He was so down to earth and just really genuine. Despite being a huge star, he never acted like it.”
Corr added that Depp was just like any other member of the touring party, despite his status as a Hollywood icon.
“He was just one of the guys, you know?” she said. “He was always up for a laugh, and he’d just sit and chat with us like anyone else. It was a real pleasure to work with him.”
Depp is well-known for his love of music and has performed live with a range of artists, including Oasis, The Pogues, and Marilyn Manson. His friendship with the late Shane MacGowan of The Pogues led to him featuring on the band’s 1993 hit “That Woman’s Got Me Drinking.”
Meanwhile, Corr has been a key figure in the Irish music scene for over two decades, both as a solo artist and a member of The Corrs. She is considered one of the finest violinists in the world and has collaborated with numerous artists, including Bono and Andrea Bocelli.
The “West of Memphis” tour included a mixture of original songs and covers, with a tribute to MacGowan included in the set. Fans of both Depp and Corr are likely to be excited about any future collaborations between the two artists following Corr’s positive comments about Depp
