Actor Johnny Depp has starred in Marilyn Manson's recent music videos for "SAY10" and "KILL4ME," and even appeared on Manson's last album. They got matching tattoos. So it's pretty heavily implied the two are great friends. It certainly can't hurt that Depp himself is also a musician. Which then leads us into this tweet from Manson, saying he's considering adding Depp into the band on guitar.
Maybe he's kidding, maybe he's not. As it stands, Tyler Bates is the only official guitarist in Manson's band. Manson plays a little and Paul Wiley is a touring guitarist, so who knows? That, or he'll add him in on bass considering that's the same situation – Juan Alderete is just a touring bassist right now.
Johnny Depp is considering a position on guitar. Sound great?

In somewhat related news, Manson is back on the road after his injuries. Manson was playing the House Of Blues in Las Vegas, NV, when he either decided to take his pants off during "The Beautiful People" or they kind of came off more than he intended.
A roadie starts to help him get them back on, and then Manson notices a girl has taken her shirt pretty much off in the crowd. Manson then asks her to get up on stage and do some dancing for the crowd, and I think at this point we should be very, very clear that this entire video is NSFW.
