Johnny Depp - Depp And Manson Team Up For Simon Cover

Johnny Depp has teamed up with his rocker pal Marilyn Manson to record a cover version of Carly Simon's classic You'Re So Vain - and they even roped in the actor's nine-year-old son to help.
Pirates of the Caribbean star Depp offered his services for the collaboration, playing drums and lead guitar while Manson provided vocals for the tune.
The song will appear as a bonus track on Manson's upcoming album Born Villain, and Depp's son Jack was also reportedly on hand in the studio to help out.
Manson tells Mtv News, "(We wanted to do) a cover of a song which we thought was ironic for each other... He played drums and lead guitar, and I played guitar and sang. It's a bonus track on my new record and the video will probably be us looking at each other in a mirror."
It's not the first time Depp's rock credentials have gone down on record - he contributed guitar tracks to Oasis' 1997 album Be Here Now.
