People Magazine reports:

[Actor/musician Johnny Depp reportedly visited guitarist Jeff Beck bedside].

“They had a really tight friendship, they were extremely close, and he got even closer over this past summer when they were touring together,” the source [shares with People] . “The sickness came on really quickly and it all deteriorated rapidly in the last couple weeks.”

“Johnny is still processing this news. He’s devastated,” the source adds.

Last year, Depp and Beck released an album, titled 18, on July 15th. The video for song “This Is a Song for Miss Hedy Lamarr,” the first single off the album, can be seen, here.

Beck passed away, at the age of 78, after suddenly contracting bacterial meningitis. The eight-time Grammy winner is survived by his wife Sandra Beck.

    1. Unfortunately I felt the same as Donald and opted not to go see him a couple months back when he was playing just down the hill. Figured I’d just catch him the next time around without Depp.
      I think the lesson here is never pass on seeing an aging rocker unless you’ll be content with never getting another chance.
