Why is Johnny Depp in a band?
Because he loves music and is great at it too...

Anyways, I was actually gimped though because I had to go to school at 9:00 am and I only got to hang for like 40 minutes. Ah well he is playing tonight, if I go more pics... But chili cookoff is tomorrow... so probably not..

By the way, how tall did he look (how tall is your dad?)? I've seen evidence that he's no taller than 5'8, and he looks so much taller than that on screen.

Cool that you got to meet him. Depp has been in a band for a long time - I remember reading about his band in the 90's, IIRC.

He's apparantly really nice in person. Everything I've read about him leads me to believe he's pure class. And one hell of an actor.

Random aside: I remember the Oscars where he was nominated for Best Actor the first Pirates movie. Keisha Castle-Hughes, nominated for Whale Rider, was there and the pre-show had done a story on her, where she said she'd always wanted to meet Jonny Depp. She had this huge crush on him. Right before the show started, one of the hosts was interviewing her in the auditorium, and then said, "Oh, there's someone you want to meet...." and led her over to Depp. He was a total gentleman - took her hand and kissed it, etc. Very classy. Anyways - congrats on meeting him.

What I've heard of 'P' (one of his later bands - '90's maybe?) wasn't all that bad.

It wasn't crap like DogStar.

Now I can say that I know of someone on an internet gaming forum whose dad's best friend was in the same band as Johnny Depp several years ago.

He always comes across as a laid-back, down to earth guy with some real smarts tucked away in his head. The other day I told my girlfriend I could go gay for Roger Federer but now that I really think about it I think Johnny Depp would take preference.

Congrats. Depp is one of only a few respectable faces of hollywood. Anyway, Depp was in Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers "Into the Great Wide Open" video which also starred Faye Dunnaway.
