After being introduced by Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith and accepting the MTV Generation Award, megastar actor Johnny Depp strummed away on his guitar with band The Black Keys. He looked every bit the able rocker on the small stage in the middle of the excited crowd. The actor and band performed "Gold on the Ceiling" and "Lonely Boy," off The Black Keys' El Camino. It's not the first time Depp has shared the stage with famous musicians. He joined good friend Marilyn Manson at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards in April of this year, riffing his way through "Beautiful People" and "Sweet Dreams."
Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and Joe Perry took to the stage halfway through the show and introduced a clip package showcasing Depp's film career, including moments from Edward Scissorhands and Alice in Wonderland. COMPLETE LIST: 2012 MTV Movie Awards Winners Instead of the usual acceptance speech, Depp strapped on his guitar and rocked out with Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney. "It's like the 'get out of the business award, you've done too much.' Based on the clips, there's obviously something wrong with me. I just thank you very much," Depp said after performing "Gold on the Ceiling" with the band and after he joked that Tyler "spit out one of my teeth." "It's an honor to be presented by these two legends Steven and Joe -- and these up and coming legends, The Black Keys," the Pirates of the Caribbean star added. After the brief speech, Depp and the Black Keys performed a second song, "Lonely Boy," that led straight into commercial break.
