Hi folks, and welcome to the Johnny Depp Rocks! blog. Since my site does not contain a message board, I thought it might be a good idea to have a place to occasionally be able to write more than just the facts. I don’t know how often I’ll have something to say, so entries may be infrequent. But here we go!
Johnny Depp Rocks! has been running for over two years now. Since I don’t have a counter, I am not sure how visible the site is in the vast expanse of cyberspace, but I do occasionally get mail from folks who have made their way here. In a few cases, I’ve had “brushes with greatness.” A representative from Paramount kindly gave me (and other sites, I’m sure) a whole bunch of links to video clips and other great downloads from Sweeney Todd. And once, I was contacted by an editor of a prominent music magazine, who asked me for some information about some of the photos on the site. But most of the time, people who contact me just have great memories of one or more of the bands discussed in these pages. Their stories and feedback are always much appreciated! And to anyone who has sent me photos, memorabilia, or even tidbits such as when or where a show may have occurred, thanks again for your help!! And to anyone who thinks they *may* have an old photo, flyer, newspaper article, etc., stored away somewhere, and you ever find it, please let me know, and many thanks!
In recent days, as we’ve approached the Second Annual Sheila Witkin Memorial Reunion Concerts, I’ve had even more e-mails than usual. Thanks for writing! This is a good time to bring up a couple of points, though. First, if you want to get a response, please make sure you include a working return address without a spamblocker, because there are several people I couldn’t respond to. The other point is that I am in no way affiliated with Johnny, his organization, or any of his bands, and have no way to contact them. Sorry! I’m just a fan, running a site about music!
Tomorrow, I will be heading down to FL for the Sheila Witkin concerts, and I’m sure I’ll have a lot to say about them when I return! While I’m gone, however, I won’t have computer access, so bear with me until I’m able to update the site with recaps! To all who are going, travel safely, enjoy ALL the great bands that will be playing, don’t forget to catch a screening of Rock And A Hard Place, and have a GREAT time!!
