Our favorite Pirate, Johnny Depp recently took time to help give over 200 adults and children the gift of hearing in Brazil.  While touring through South America as part of the “The Hollywood Vampires,” Johnny Depp, wife Amber Heard and Alice Cooper were among celebrities working alongside the Starkey Hearing Foundation to provide hearing aides.  Johnny Depp got right into the action helping fit the hearing aids. Depp shared with the Associated Press the incredible feeling. “This sweet little girl, I turned the volume up and I just sort of made a noise — ba-ba-ba-ba-ba — and she went, ‘Yes! … I can hear!’”  Amber Heard, wiped away tears saying “Just to be a small part of that for one moment, to watch someone’s life change in front of you, it’s moving to say the least.”


The event was part of a partnership between the Starkey Foundation and the Rock in Rio festival where the Hollywood Vampires were performing.  For more information on the Starkey Group, visit


The Hollywood Vampires is a super group made up of former Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan and drummer Matt Sorum, along side Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper, and Aerosmith’s Joe Perry.  Their debut album which went on sale, September 11th features  guest appearances by Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl, Slash and even the late actor Christopher Lee. Proceeds from the album will benefit the Grammy Awards-affiliated charity MusiCares.
