August UNCUT features exclusive UK interview with Johnny Depp and Keith Richards!

The UK movie-and-music magazine UNCUT celebrates its 10th anniversary in a big way: its August issue features a cover story on Bob Dylan and a “UK- exclusive joint interview with Keith Richards and Johnny Depp.” According to associate publisher Gareth Beesley, “UNCUT is celebrating its tenth anniversary with an all star cast this month: the celebratory August issue is packed full of features and interviews with many of our heroes from music and film.” On the subject of heroes, Johnny concedes to UNCUT that he was “afraid to meet” Keith Richards “for a long time, because there is always a fear that your heroes are going to be sh**heads.” As for Keith Richards, he admits that his first reaction to Johnny Depp was “‘Not another one of my [. . .] son’s friends’ [. . . .] Johnny started kind of like that and then he worked his way up with me.” While the interview may be exclusive in the U.K., U.S. readers will recognize it as the one that ran in ROLLING STONE last month.

The August 2007 issue of UNCUT goes on sale in the United Kingdom today, July 3rd. Happy hunting, and thanks to AnaMaria for the cover image and interview snippet. –Part-Time Poet
