Johnny Depp Rocks! is updated often, so please check back!

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!

Addendum, 9 years on: for the past year and a half, Johnny has literally been rockin' all over the world this year, performing live as far away as Beijing, China and Brisbane, Australia, with plans to perform at Rock In Rio in Rio de Janeiro in September.  He also continues to contribute to recordings and music videos, with hopes of more projects coming up for release soon.
 Here's hoping that Johnny will continue to pursue his musical interests in the coming year, and for many years to come!

 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!
