Joe Perry, Steven Tyler, Aerosmith


Steven Tyler and Joe Perry have been working with the actor on Aerosmith's new album in Tim Burton's studio.

As previously reported, Johnny Depp is to receive the MTV Generation Award at this Sunday, June 3 ceremony of 2012 MTV Movie Awards. MTV has announced that the artists on duty to hand the actor the honor are Aerosmith rockers Steven Tyler and Joe Perry.

Depp and Aerosmith have been linked by their love of music. "Johnny is a great musician and many people don't know that, he plays piano, guitar, he knows his music. We are actually in Tim Burton's old studio right now called Swinghouse doing our new Aerosmith album, and Johnny will come down every other night," Tyler told FOX411. "And then when we are done recording I go up to Johnny's house and I play him stuff and ask if it is any good... He gives me (honest feedback)."

In addition to receiving the prestigious honor, Depp will also be treated to a special performance dedicated to him by The Black Keys. The rock duo will do a rendition of their hit "Gold on the Ceiling".

2012 MTV Movie Awards will be held at the Gibson Amphitheatre, hosted by Russell Brand. "Bridesmaids" and "The Hunger Games" lead the nominations list with eight each.
