British rockers Babybird have hired a team of bodyguards to take charge of security at their summer shows so Hollywood star Johnny Depp can join them on stage."These guys can handle any situation. Babybird concerts are usually pretty good natured, but it only takes one idiot," imdb.com quoted a source as saying.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star is a big fan of the group. He funded the recording of their latest album and even joined them in the studio to play the guitar for a track and direct the promo for it. Earlier plans had got scrapped due to security fears. Now the group has reportedly drafted in two former SAS soldiers to provide extra protection so the actor can perform on stage with them at a select few gigs and festival slots throughout June and July.
