Site Announcement:

Photobucket, my long-time photo storage site, has finally changed their policy on allowing links to other sites, despite my being a paid customer for many years.  As a result, most if not all of my thumbnails here on Johnny Depp Rocks will result in many ads making the page difficult to load. I will eventually cancel my Photobucket subscription. Meanwhile, I will slowly be changing my links on this site so that they will once again be workable. Please have patience, as this is likely going to take me months or years.  But new photos will be hosted by Imgur, for which the links work much better.

    Five years ago, I published my first few pages of Johnny Depp Rocks!  As a huge fan of Johnny Depp and also a longtime music enthusiast and collector, I had been investigating Johnny's musical background and pursuits, but I grew frustrated when I saw so much false information on the web and in print.  I created this site as an attempt to compile accurate information about Johnny's musical side: his bands, live performances, recordings, and videos, as well as his friends in the world of music, and share it freely with all his fans.  While the design may be plain, I hope that the information presented here is as accurate and reliable as it can possibly be.  Many thanks to all those who have offered feedback or contributed information to help this site to thrive. I always welcome any corrections, additions, or suggestions, and hope that this site will continue to grow whenever there may be more to add!  Hope you enjoy!

    Happy Tenth Anniversary to Johnny Depp Rocks!!  Ten years ago, when I started this site on my free Verizon web space, Johnny was rarely performing publicly anymore (though Sweeney Todd had just been announced so we had his vocal skills to look forward to).  Who could've predicted then that Johnny would reunite with The Kids, guest on over a dozen studio albums and even more live shows, and go on tour with the Hollywood Vampires?!  It's been a great ten years, and here's hoping for many more!  Keep rockin', Johnny!!!

    I am always grateful for corrections or additions to any of the content on this site!  I would particularly love any photos or other memorabilia from any of Johnny's live performances, past or present.  Please contact me if you can help!
