Watch: Nick, Fab, Johnny Depp play Petty Fest West

by Eric Van Dril · 27 comments

I posted a couple photos from Petty Fest West on Twitter/Facebook this morning, but here’s the first video I found from last night’s festival. It includes Fab drumming, Nick singing/playing guitar and some dude named John playing guitar in a bizarre hat.

Albert was also there. I’ll post the video of Albert, if it surfaces.

Wait, Nick can sing? Well when did this happen?! lol I’m actually impressed. He sounds pretty good here. :)

12 TheTourist November 17, 2012 at 12:17 am

Umm… Not quite impressed with his singing. Not bad, but I’m glad he’s just guitar.

14 Carl Anon :D November 17, 2012 at 8:46 am

This is SIIIIICKKK!!! :D

15 Annie 1251 November 17, 2012 at 3:07 pm

@mateja
I wonder that same thing every time I visit this forum!

@1251ismytime
I am so sorry! I know how you feel! I think I told you about how I missed the Trocadero for JC. :(
All we can do is hope these guys actually remember they are supposed to TOUR after the new album.
As in: visit cities around the country and the world and PLAY YOUR MUSIC! LOL!

16 Choco November 17, 2012 at 4:18 pm

OMG. This is like the best thing ever. Johnny on the guitar, Albert (looking great btw) on the guitar, AND NICK FINALLY SINGING with his glorious voice, and Fab was there too! Where was Julian and Niko?!

17 heather November 17, 2012 at 11:12 pm

And freaking JOHNNY DEPP playing the guitar with them? That is SICK!

18 heather November 17, 2012 at 11:18 pm

@The Tourist: LOL! It’s cool. I’m not saying he should replace Julian as the singer or anything (crazy) like that. ;)

19 wolfman November 18, 2012 at 1:08 am

20 the modern age November 18, 2012 at 6:34 pm

21 John November 20, 2012 at 6:32 am

Wow! I don’t know how I missed this. I’ve definitely checked in here since November. But so glad to finally see it–awesome! I dig Nick’s vocals. I was worried for a second that he’d add a few too many “likes” in there. Hah. Bad joke.

Awaiting, awaiting, awaiting more Strokes news.
