We recently reported that Joe Perry was releasing a four-song EP titled Joe Perry's Merry Christmas. Here's the first video from it, "Run Run Rudolph."
The song features Perry's pal actor Johnny Depp on rhythm guitar.According to Perry, Depp's involvement came about spontaneously.
"He would stop by once in a while to see how the tracks were doing, and we're both Chuck Berry fans and [the song] needed another rhythm guitar, so he put on a rhythm track over what I had already laid down," Perry says. "And he's a really good guitar player. People don't know it, but he can hold his own, believe me. And if you listen on headphones you can really hear the two rhythm guitars together, just Chuck Berry-ing out."
