Babybird Hire Bodyguards To Allow Depp To Perform

British rockers BABYBIRD have hired a team of bodyguards to take charge of security at their summer shows (10) - so Hollywood star JOHNNY DEPP can join them on stage, according to a U.K. report.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star is a big fan of the group - he funded the recording of their latest album and even joined the musicians in the studio to play guitar on a track and direct the promo for it.
But when Depp asked to join the rockers on their U.K. tour last month (Mar10), frontman Stephen Jones admitted they scrapped the plans over security fears.
The group has now reportedly drafted in two former SAS soldiers to provide extra protection so the actor can perform onstage with them at a select few gigs and festival slots throughout June and July (10), according to Britain's The Sun.
A source tells the publication, "These guys can handle any situation. Babybird concerts are usually pretty good natured, but it only takes one idiot."
