HOLLYWOOD star Johnny Depp has been jamming with Jeff Beck at the rocker’s Sussex pad.

Johnny, 57, went to the mansion in Wadhurst to stay with his buddy before launching his claim against The Sun newspaper for defaming him.

They have shared a friendship and love of rock’n’roll music and Jeff and his wife Sandra opened the doors of their Grade II listed home called Riverhall to the actor.

The Sunday Mirror reported: “Johnny stayed with Jeff and his wife where he prepared for the case. It was a beautiful place to base himself and he could relax with Jeff. They had some jamming sessions.”

The duo have previously teamed up to release an album together during the coronavirus lockdown called Isolation, which features a cover of John Lennon’s song of the same title.

Johnny encouraged people to be creative during the crisis. He said: “We cannot and must not succumb to shutting down and giving in to what feels like hellish quarantine monotony.

“Create something today that will benefit yourselves and others tomorrow. Do anything you think could be of use to brighten someone’s day.”

Johnny’s time spent in Wadhurst comes as the libel trial continues. His former wife Amber Heard is giving evidence this week at the High Court about their turbulent relationship.

Johnny has disputed the claims and said Amber attacked him. He has called on evidence from previous partners including singer Vanessa Paradis and actress Winona Ryder.
