Following their closing performance at Sunday night's Grammy Awards, Sir Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen made their way to the Foo Fighters' after-party at Fig & Olive Melrose Place. No sooner did they get there than Johnny Depp arrived and grabbed a glass of wine and a seat in the lounge, cordially greeting friends and fans.
At one point, McCartney approached Depp and mimicked his signature Pirates of the Caribbean Captain Jack Sparrow walk – which resulted in lots of laughter. Depp then joined the former Beatle and his wife for dinner; McCartney, a vegetarian, stuck to dishes like the spaghetti Mediterraneano and vegetarian paella. By the end of the evening, fast friends McCartney, Springsteen and Depp were seen discussing the night's big awards and all the winners.

Talk about Royal Command Performance.
A variety of music stars – from Paul McCartney, Elton John and Annie Lennox to Jessie J and Ed Sheeran – will sing in celebration on June 4 to mark Queen Elizabeth's 60 years on the throne, it was announced Tuesday.
Organizer Gary Barlow, of former boy band Take That, said Princes William and Harry both have recommended acts that have yet to be announced, and more names will be revealed over the coming weeks. Among them, it is believed: Adele.
Barlow added that he wants the event, which will take place on a special stage based around the Queen Victoria Memorial outside the gates in front of Buckingham Palace, to have the feel of a "street party." ABC will air exclusive highlights of the concert on June 5.

Last month, Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell posted an official notice that they intend to get married at London's Old Marylebone Town Hall, and now there are signs that a celebration may be imminent.
A local company has been erecting a marquee tent at the singer’s home, where a van from a party and decoration company has also been spotted. The wedding is widely believed to be this coming Sunday.
McCartney, 69, and Shevell, 51 – who were engaged in May – returned to London earlier this week after attending his daughter Stella’s fashion show in Paris on Monday.
The pair sat close together in the front row where "they looked like two lovebirds," according to an observer.

Paul McCartney will wed fiancée Nancy Shevell at the same venue he married late wife Linda, it was revealed Friday.
The musician, 69, and Shevell, 51, who announced their engagement in May, have posted their notice that they intend to get married at the Old Marylebone Town Hall, in London.
Earlier this week the couple met with Superintendent Registrar Alison Cathcart, and the notice – sometimes called banns – was made on Wednesday. The actual wedding date has not been announced, but there has been speculation they will wed in October.
The meeting with the couple "was all a bit last minute. I had no prior warning," Cathcart, who has been Westminster City Council's Superintendent Registrar for nearly 20 years and expects to conduct the McCartney-Shevell ceremony, tells PEOPLE. "They were lovely, very relaxed and very charming and clearly in love with each other," she revealed. "They were excited."
