Johnny Depp in a Cowboy Hat

Toby Keith Cowboy Hat - The Toyo Outback at HartfordYork.comJohnny Depp, who is usually seen in his tattered fedora, was wearing a black cowboy hat when he joined Marilyn Manson in a concert for Revolver magazine’s Golden Gods Awards in Los Angeles.

After viewing the performance of Sweet Dreams as well as a rendition of The Beautiful People, I can honestly say I liked the hat the best. Although Depp’s guitar work rocks, I’m not a big fan of Manson’s shock rock delivery style. Apparently the two are friends, have teamed up before and are in fact performing  together again on the singer’s upcoming album with a version of You’re So Vain by Carly Simon.

The choice of cowboy hat (with large white feather in addition to colorful trim) seems an odd choice for the venue, although the broad brim might have had something to do with it as Depp was performing incognito at first. The man looks good in hats and it was nice to see him in a style I don’t think I’ve seen him in before.

Now, I wonder if Depp would consider playing with someone a tad more tuneful, like Michael Feinstein, Michael Bublé or Harry Connick Jr. Of course, with those fellas, he’d probably need a nice, new fedora.

Thanks for reading (quietly),
