Johnny Depp crashes Aerosmith show and gets 'A-Rollin' with Steven Tyler

It's no secret that Johnny Depp harbors rock 'n' roll dreams behind his eccentric movie star pose. As he wraps up filming "Black Mass" in Massachusetts, the guitar-slinging actor has made do by crashing big-time area concerts, including Aerosmith's Thursday night.

As seen in a video captured by a fan, Depp made a surprise appearance at the band's Xfinity Center show in Mansfield, popping up to join Steven Tyler and Co. for an encore performance of "Train Kept A-Rollin'." His fiancée, Amber Heard, reportedly was hanging out backstage.

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry approved of Depp's wailing solo, tweeting a shout-out to the actor and fellow guitarist Slash, who also appeared that night.

Depp has had some practice wielding his axe for huge crowds: In June, he jumped on a Boston waterfront stage to play guitar alongside Willie Nelson. And he's jammed with Aerosmith at least once before, having  joined the band in Los Angeles for a 2012 appearance at the Hollywood Bowl.

At this rate, the actor may have to start issuing tour T-shirts.
