Johnny Depp was in Little Rock this weekend to appear at a benefit to raise awareness of the West Memphis 3 — three now-adults convicted of killing three children in 1993, when they were teenagers. He — along with stars on the lineup including Patti Smith and Natalie Maines — believe they are innocent, as new DNA evidence reportedly points elsewhere. One of those convicted is on death row. He read an excerpt from one of their journals, greeting the crowd beforehand and taking their shouts of appreciation in good grace. He also introduced Eddie Vedder, calling him "amazing". Check out Johnny onstage below.
