Aerosmith Tap Johnny Depp, Carrie Underwood for ‘Another Dimension’

The album also includes a number of newer acquaintances. Perry says he was initially skeptical about Carrie Underwood dueting with Tyler on “Beautiful,” which Tyler describes as “a country-western crossover ballad.” But Perry was won over: “Their voices matched up really well. It doesn’t sound forced. It was just right.” While in Los Angeles working on Idol, Tyler met Julian Lennon in his hotel, and Lennon wound up contributing harmony vocals to “Love Three Times a Day,” which Tyler not surprisingly describes as “Beatlesque.” “He’s such a sweet :censored: guy,” Tyler says. “And he’s John’s first son with that voice and sense of humor – gimme a break!” Johnny Depp also added backup vocals to Perry’s politically conscious rocker “Freedom Fighter,” but the song may end up an outtake or on a later deluxe edition of the album, according to Perry.

CREEDE —By the time this is read, Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer will be shooting and producing “The Lone Ranger” in their Moab, Utah, location.

It is about 30 degrees hotter than Creede and the cast and crew miss our climate, although not the smoke-filled skies which wafted over from the Little Sand Fire daily.

Restaurant, shop and lodge owners in Creede are happy with their through-the-roof-sales, which are doubled and tripled from a year ago.

Johnny Depp Is Said to Buy A Painting by Seattle Artist Kellie Talbot

Ballard-based artist Kellie Talbot makes tightly composed paintings of the eccentric American past of the mid-20th century. She pictures rusted old neon signs seen in daylight (so unlit, fallow), and at close range, as if you were up in their air.

They’re signs of a certain shared history that has splintered; you used to be able to find them all over, from Ballard to Vegas, in places that have since gone their separate ways, aesthetically and economically speaking. What they’re advertising may be gone, but these are such pretty hulks. If the paintings are nostalgic, that’s mitigated by the fact that the signs are suggested rather than seen whole, cut into fragments and details.
