years ago, I published
my first few pages of Johnny Depp Rocks!
As a huge fan of Johnny Depp and also a longtime music
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
performances, recordings, and videos, as well as his friends in the
world of music, and share it freely with all his fans. While
design may be plain, I hope that the information presented here is as
accurate and reliable as it can possibly be. Many thanks to
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!

Addendum, 8 years on: after a bit of a performance lull in 2013, Johnny
has literally been rockin' all over the world this year, performing
live as far away as Beijing, China. He also continues to
contribute to recordings and music videos, with hopes of more projects
coming up for release soon. Here's hoping that
continue to pursue his musical interests in the coming year, and for
many years to come!
MadScntst, July 23, 2014 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.
