Richards 'didn't recognise Depp'

Johnny Depp hung out unidentified at Keith Richards' house for two years

Keith Richards has revealed Johnny Depp was a frequent visitor to his home for two years before he twigged he was a Hollywood star.

The Rolling Stones star admitted he feared that the screen superstar was his son's drug dealer.

In an interview with Caitlin Moran in Times2, Keith confesses he had no idea who Oscar-nominated actor was, despite seeing him around his home.

Johnny credits Keith as the inspiration for his character Jack Sparrow in the Pirates Of The Caribbean films - and the musician even went on to play his father in the third of the hit movies.

Keith said: "It took me two year before I realised who he was. He was just one of my son Marlon's mates, hanging around the house playing guitar.

"I never ask Marlon's mates who they are because, you know, 'I'm a dope dealer'. Then one day I was at dinner and I'm like 'woah, Scissorhands'."

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
