What's cooler than watching Keith Richards playing guitar in a small club? Watching him jam out with his young, piratical doppelganger, Johnny Depp. After each song he plays, he should have a cooler of Jack Daniels dumped over his head instead of Gatorade. Depp would probably tell you that it's moments like this that he would give up a nice chunk of that Pirates of the Carribean booty for.
The fellas collaborated on an old Charlie Segar blues tune called "Key to the Highway," which the Rolling Stones recorded in 1964 but never released, except for an instrumental snatch of the tune that appeared at the end of Dirty Work. It all went down at the Playboy-sponsored Rum Diary after party Tuesday night in the Hiro Ballroom of New York's Maritime Hotel, when the craggy, best-selling author joined Depp and his JD band for their rendition of the song. And the fan-filmed video is a good one, practically putting you on the stage with the "new Glimmer Twins." Definitely better than the pink, sideways camera-phone video that Perez Hilton gives you.
