Johnny Depp made a surprise appearance at Revolver’s Golden Gods 2012 Awards on Wednesday night. The actor and his Gibson Les Paul Special in TV Yellow appeared on stage with Marilyn Manson.

In case anyone in the audience didn’t notice Depp on stage, Manson announced: “If you don’t recognize my personal friend... my personal savior, my personal guitar hero, Johnny Depp!”

Depp played guitar on Manson’s “Beautiful People” and a version of the Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).”

Nikki Sixx won the Paul Gray Best Bassist award while Slash was hailed as Riff Lord. Slash performed a powerhouse version of “School’s Out” with Alice Cooper.
