July 7, 2015: A
new Infinitum Nihil project has been announced! Muscle Shoals
will be a TV drama series inspired by a 2013 documentary of the same
name. Muscle Shoals, Alabama has been a major location for music
recording and music, period. Johnny's sister and IN president
Christi Dembrowski says of the project: “Muscle Shoals is an
extraordinary story in which, through adversity, some of the world’s
most amazing music was created. It is perfectly suited for Infinitum as
it combines Johnny’s love of music and its history with our company’s
creative mission to tell these stories." So far there's no word
on the timing of the series or what network might air it, so stay
tuned! Read more about the project on Comingsoon.net.

Depp's ventures into the music world are increasing! Today it was

Snow. The song is called All Around The World, and you can see it

June 2015: Marilyn Manson did some Q&A on Reddit in late June, and as reported bytheprp, he said, "I did a couple songs with Johnny Depp recently before he left to go to Australia." Time will tell if these songs will be released, but here's hoping! You can read Marilyn's entire Reddit threadhere. Thanks to emma at The Zone for the heads-up!
June 2015: The 41st Annual Saturn Awards (from The Academy of Science
Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films) took place in June. Into The Woods
was nominated for 5 awards: Fantasy Film, Supporting Actress (Meryl
Streep), Production Design, Costume, and Make-Up. Alas, it didn't

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, 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
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, 2015 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.
