Is thatJohnny Depp on lead guitar?

I think it just may be. On another fundraising note, this one may have flown under the radar, but not here people, not here. Shane MacGowan & Friends, which includes Nick Cave, Bobby Gillespie, Glen Matlock, Johnny Depp, Chrissie Hynde, Paloma Faith and Eliza Doolittle, remake the Screamin’ Jay Hawkins classic I Put Spell On You. It’s a response to the recent earthquake in Haiti with all proceeds from the song (available on iTunes), going directly to Concern, an established charity which has worked with poor countries in general prior to the earthquake. Sure Depp plays few riffs, but he’s got a tipparella, more money than you and me and makes movies. You get to watch him do all that while your boss yells at you for being late with the pitch deck. After the suckiness of that sinks in, stop your whining and donate. Facebook? Yes, have some.
