In the spring of 2018, the band began laying down some tracks.  Joe Perry has also teased the possibility of a live album: "We have to at least do a live album!”  Alice Cooper has also said that all the 2016 shows have been taped.
  • (?) Douglas Brinkley: The Unraveled Tales of Bob Dylan (Book) This Dylan biography was originally scheduled for publication in 2015 by Johnny's imprint Infinitum Nihil. As of June 2018 there is no sign of publication.
  • (?) Muscle Shoals (TV drama series).  A series about the recording studios, music scene, culture and politics of Muscle Shoals, Alabama will be produced by Johnny and Christi Dembrowski at IN.  A 2016 update reports that IN will partner with IM Global TV to develop the series.  In 2018, it was announced that Nancy Wilson will executive produce and Bettina Gilois will write the series.  Stay tuned for information!
  • (?) Keith Richards Documentary (working title Happy). Johnny is directing a documentary about Keith Richards. The film has been in the works for about 7 years.  In about 2016, Dariusz Wolski mentioned that the film had a screening at UTA, and hoped that there would soon be some film festival screenings. We're still hoping!

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 have been relocating many of my images to a new hosting site, Imgur, and am using this site for all new images. However, the migration process has proved to be a much larger process than I orignally thought it would be, causing much frustration. I'm hoping that many my image links will eventually work better but it's possible that we'll be stuck with Photobucket for most older images. Apologies for any inconvenience!

    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!
