Eddie Vedder, Johnny Depp and Patti Smith Rock Little Rock
Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder and the Dixie Chicks' Natalie Maines were the two big headliners at the West Memphis Three benefit in Little Rock, Arkansas on Saturday night (Aug. 28). But lo and behold, some other famous faces showed up at Robinson Hall to lend their support to overturning the murder convictions of the three locals who many feel are innocent.
In addition to a set by Ben Harper, Joseph Arthur and Dhani (son of George) Harrison's band Fistful of Mercy, the "Voices For Justice" event found, at one point, the unusual trio of actor Johnny Depp (yes, that Johnny Depp, on guitar no less), Eddie Vedder and Patti Smith sharing a song, Smith's "Dancing Barefoot," before everyone involved hopped on the stage for the very appropriate Smith tune "People Have The Power." But don't just take our word for it. Here are the videos:
